EZ Pass Scam
onvenient way to make use of toll roads.
Whether you live in an area where it’s available or have recently rented a car that made use of it, there’s a clever email scam you need to be aware of.
A new phishing scam that poses as a notice of unpaid tolls is making the rounds and it’s not just trying to bilk you out of your money.
If you fall victim to this scam, not only will they get your credit card information, you’ll end up with a hidden virus that allows them to remotely access your computer.
E-Z Pass payments are never collected via e-mail, they’re either deducted directly from your account or a notice is mailed to the address associated with the license plate of the vehicle in question.
Remember, if you recently rented a car with E-Z Pass, the rental agency would be the one to notify or charge you for any unpaid tolls.
