Delhi: Prime Minister's Office on Wednesday posted a specimen letter that had been circulated with a wrong attribution to PM Narendra Modi and asked people to be careful.

Hindustan Times quoted sources in the PMO as saying that in the last few weeks, appeals on different issues had started doing the rounds on social media, prompting them to caution people against such fraud acts.
Last week, PM Modi had pipped Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan to become the most followed Indian on Twitter.
Before this, his Twitter followers had surpassed that of maegastar Shah Rukh Khan.
