In this post, we will tell you how scammers are committing fraud with the BISP Beneficiaries and the ways that you can prevent yourself from falling prey to them.

BISP Announcement 2024: Fake bank cheques are being given

Since the Benazir Kafalat Program’s April 2024 payment has been disbursed to registered participants, numerous scammers have emerged, offering fake bank cheques to the people under the guise of the BISP initiative. Everyone needs to be aware that there is no BISP scheme where payments are made by cheque; instead, all beneficiaries receive their 10500 Bisp payment in cash from Benazir camps and retail stores. 

BISP had warned their beneficiaries to stay away from the fraudster and not ever share any of the information if they ask for it from sources other than 8171. This article will guide you on how you can differentiate between fake messages and calls and what to do if you receive them from fraud numbers.

Benazir Income Support Program 10500 Payments are Only made by Cash

Since many innocent individuals lack the fundamental knowledge necessary to cope with fraud and get their Benazir Monthly payment, the BISPs make every effort to inform them of all the important information either on social media platforms or through campaigns. 

The BISP Payment of 10500 is given to the beneficiaries only in the form of cash and no cheques are given to the beneficiaries through the official BISP team if in case they receive it from other sources then it is crucial to inform the BISP team at their Toll-Free number: 0800-24677  and register your complaint so that the strict action will be taken against those fraudsters.

Other than the fake cheques, you should be aware of certain crucial information that will enable you to quickly determine if any calls or texts you receive claiming to be from the BISP are fraudulent. 

Recognize Fake Messages in the Name of the BISP Program

The Benazir Income Support Program urges users to avoid SMS or phone calls from BISPs since many scammers use the BISP’s identity to steal people’s money in a variety of methods. Because BISP is Pakistan’s largest welfare network dedicated to the well-being of the poor and worthy, they work hard to ensure that their funds are distributed transparently to those in need. 

The 8171 ehsaas program processes for recognizing fraudsters in the name of the bisp program are as follows:

  • Fake messages state that people’s wazaifs have been accepted.
  • Contact information is provided for fund transfers.
  • The program additionally promises the release of Wazaif.
