Drivers Warned of E-ZPass Phishing Scam

The email from E-ZPass saying you haven’t paid your toll is a fraud.

Because people still fall for these things in 2014, state agencies in Massachusetts and New York are warning motorists about an email scam that purports to be from E-ZPass and says you have an unpaid toll charge.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has warned motorists, too, and it’s safe to say this scam is likely in the Philadelphia area as well.


The Inquirer details what one of the emails looked like:

Subject: In arrears for driving on toll road

E-ZPass Service Center

Dear customer,

You have not paid for driving on a toll road. This invoice is sent repeatedly, please service your debt in the shortest possible time.

Customers are urged to ignore the email.
