Pennsylvania Turnpike officials are warning drivers about a new e-mail scam.
They say it’s targeting E-Z Pass users.
Scammers are sending bogus e-mails to people, claiming they haven’t paid their bill.
The official-looking email requires the recipient to visit a link that redirects them to a site that appears to be an E-Z Pass webpage.
Credit card information is required after clicking the link, but the real purpose of the email is for thieves to gain access to the victim’s computer by using a virus.
If you think you’ve been a target in this scam, you’re asked to contact E-Z Pass customer service at 877.736.6727.
The CyberCrimes Division of the FBI is aware of the issue. Anyone receiving this scam email and/or may have fallen victim to this is encouraged to file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
