Drivers urged to ignore E-ZPass scam

Transportation officials are warning drivers about a scam involving E-ZPass.

They said 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.

E-ZPass called the emails a phishing scam.

If anyone gets an email that appears to be from E-ZPass, users were urged to not open it or respond.

Questions about the validity of any correspondence between E-ZPass and consumers could always be verified by contacting E-ZPass directly.

While Connecticut currently does not have toll roads, New York and Massachusetts do.

New York drivers can learn more information here.
