The State Thruway Authority issued a warning Tuesday about an email scam which masquerades as a message from E-ZPass and tries to collect unpaid tolls.
The message is not authorized by E-ZPass, the Thruway Authority or any other toll agency. Anyone receiving the bogus email is advised to delete it and avoid opening or responding to it.
“The E-ZPass Service Center does not send out email invoices for payment,” the Thruway Authority advisory said. “If you owe money for using E-ZPass on a toll facility, the E-Z Pass Service Center will send an invoice through the U.S. Postal Service for payment.”
