Ohio Turnpike officials warn of email scam

 

The Associated Press

Ohio Turnpike officials are warning their E-ZPass customers of an email scam.

Officials said Monday that emails from the sender "EZPass Info" are likely attempts to steal personal information from some of the 150,000 customers who use the automated E-ZPass system to automatically pay tolls on the northern Ohio thoroughfare.

The email says the customer owes money and asks the receiver to click a link to download an invoice.

The same e-mail scam also has been reported in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Massachusetts and the District of Columbia.

Officials say the customers with questions about the validity of a message from E-ZPass should call the Turnpike's customer service center at 440-234-2081, extension 1075.
