The MTA has issued a warning that an email going around to E-ZPass holders is actually a phishing scam. The email, which looks as though it was sent by the E-ZPass service center, asks customers to download an invoice with a list of unpaid tolls. (Hint: Don’t do that.)
Statement from the New York State Thruway Authority:
The New York State Thruway Authority is warning E-ZPass customers about a phishing scam.
People have received bogus emails made to appear official stating that people have unpaid tolls.
