E-ZPass Phishing Scam: Don’t Get Phished!

The New York State Thruway Authority has recently issued a warning to all E-ZPass customers about a phishing scam that has come to their attention. They warn of people having received bogus emails made to appear official stating that they have unpaid tolls. These bogus emails includes a clickable link where you supposedly download a copy of your invoice. E-ZPass is urging all people NOT to open or respond to these emails. If you do, all of your personal information will be compromised.

Although phishing emails aren’t a new form of scamming, criminals are getting craftier in the way they present the emails to would-be victims. Always be wary of emails you receive and if you’d like to report one such E-ZPass phishing email, then we strongly suggest you contact the Federal Trad Commission to do so.
