E-ZPass Email Phishing Scam Warning

It has come to our attention that many people have received an email with the subject line "In arrears for driving on toll road". Please be advised that this is not a communication from E-ZPass®, but is likely a phishing scam. We advise you not to open, respond to or click any links in that message. 

What is a phishing scam/email?
Phish or fraudulent emails may contain links to phony websites and may request you to share personal or financial information by using clever and compelling language. These emails may also convey an urgent need to update your information or communicate with you to ensure the security of your accounts. [Learn more]

Drivers should know that legitimate toll violation notices are sent by mail not email, from the E-ZPass® Customer Service Center.
If you have any questions about the validity of any message received from E-ZPass®, please contact your E-ZPass® Customer Service Center for guidance. NJ E-ZPass® account holders may call 1-888-288-6865.
