The Bottom Line: E-ZPass phishing scam

ALBANY -- If you're a user of E-ZPass, here's a Bottom Line Alert you need to hear.
A brand new warning about an e-mail phishing scam, supposedly trying to collect unpaid E-ZPass tolls.
The e-mail hitting inboxes contains a purple E-ZPass logo that looks like the official logo.
The text in the e-mail says you, the customer, haven't paid for driving on a toll road. Then it says your invoice can be downloaded by clicking on a link.
State officials at the Thruway Authority and in Massachusetts are telling motorists, the e-mail is not real.
If it comes to you, officials say don't open or respond to it; instead, simply delete the e-mail.
If you do have any questions about your account, be sure to contact E-ZPass Customer Service directly.
