Scams and Ripoffs: W.Va. Scam Targets E-Z Pass Users

W.Va. (WHSV)-- A new scam is affecting E-Z pass users through their email inbox before hitting the road. E-Z pass lanes allow drivers to pay tolls electronically on turnpikes.

There are three things to look out for in the new scam email referring to the pass. First, E-Z pass customers get email from 'look-alike' E-Z pass accounts. Then, the email tells customers that they have unpaid toll fees. Also, the email scammer asks customers to click on a fraudulent link to pay their bill. All of these are the signs of the E-Z pass scam.

Emails like that are not legitimate. The West Virginia attorney general's office says we should not reply to the email or click on the link, just delete it.
