Transportation officials are warning drivers about a phishing scam involving E-ZPass. Scammers are sending emails pretending to be the electronic toll collection system. The emails claim to be trying to collect unpaid tolls.
However, E-ZPass said it does not send out emails for payment. It said it only sends invoices through the U.S. Postal Service.
If you receive an email that appears to be from E-ZPass, you are urged to not open it or respond. Questions about the validity of any correspondence between E-ZPass and consumers can be verified by contacting E-ZPass directly.
While Connecticut currently does not have toll roads, New York and Massachusetts do.
