EZ Pass Warning

If you’re planning a late summer get away before school starts, BBB® warns there’s a new email scam claiming to come from E-Z Pass stating you failed to pay it – even if you didn’t go through a toll!

The email has a legitimate-looking E-Z Pass logo and says, “Dear customer, You have not paid for driving on a toll road. This invoice is sent repeatedly, please service your debt in the shortest possible time. The invoice can downloaded here.”

A Pierce Township man received the email says the first hint of this being a scam is the poor English. In addition, he says he never drives on toll roads. A check of the email address of the sender reveals it doesn’t come from  E-Z Pass but rather “housewife.com”
