E-Z PASS SCAM


There is a new scam making its way across the internet, and this time it involves EZ-Pass and the scanning procedure that it does when you drive through tolls.

How the Scam Works:  There are three things to look out for in the new scam email referring to the pass.  First, E-Z Pass customers get an email from 'look alike' E-Z Pass accounts.  Then, the email tells customers that they have unpaid toll fees.  Also, the email scammer asks customers to click on a fraudulent link to pay their bill.  All of these are signs of the E-Z Pass scam.  Usually, the scammer is looking to get your passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information from you. 

Here are some ways you can prevent yourself from becoming a victim:  First thing to remember is that emails like that are not legitimate.  They are coming from a scammer looking to use your personal, sensitive information for his/her own use.  Make sure to delete the message right away when you first receive it.  Do NOT click on the link either; it will take you to a fraudulent website that will attempt to retrieve your personal information.  The EZ-Pass Corporation released a statement saying it sends out notices through the USPS instead of through email.  By following these simple steps, you can prevent yourself from becoming a victim of these scams.
