For the second year in a row, drivers who use toll roads in the Washington, D.C., metro area are the target of email scammers trying to get their credit card information, NBC's Washington affiliate, NBC 4, reported.
The phony emails target the estimated 2.1 million vehicles in Maryland and Virginia with E-ZPass transponders, used to pay toll road fares electronically, regional drivers' association AAA Mid-Atlantic said Monday. The emails warn drivers they are "indebted for driving on toll roads, " with a link to a phony website that requests users to enter personal and financial data.
But clicking on the link could inadvertently infect your computer or phone with malicious software known as malware and grant criminals access to your personal information, AAA told NBC 4.
The full scam email, complete with E-ZPass logos and fonts, reads: "Indebted for driving on toll road #000923942. Notice to appear. You have a [sic] unpaid for using toll road. You are kindly asked to service your debt in the shortest time possible. You can review the invoice in the attachment. Regards, Brent Larsen, E-ZPass Manager," according to AAA. Even the phony website is an exact replica of the real thing, AAA said.
E-ZPass users can protect themselves by looking for red flags like long strings of numbers and bad spelling or grammar in emails. AAA also suggests avoiding phishing faux pas like clicking on email links.
Instead, call E-ZPass directly or type the URL into your browser yourself, AAA said. Read more on the story with NBC 4.
