E-ZPass customers be on alert: a possible phishing scheme is invading customer email inboxes across the state.
State officials said they are aware customers are receiving fraudulent emails, which features the official electronic system's logo, that demand payment for a phantom tolls.
"This invoice is sent repeatedly," the faux email reads. "please service your debt in the shortest possible time."
The email then directs the customer to download an invoice.
"Please be advised that this is not a communication from E-ZPass, but is likely a phishing scam," according to a news release from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. "We advise you not to open or respond to that message. If you have any questions about the validity of any message received from E-ZPass, please contact your E-ZPass Customer Service Center for guidance."
