The Ohio Turnpike is warning E-ZPass users not to fall for an e-mail scam.
The emails inform customers that they are in arrears and ask them to service their debt as quickly as possible.
"The emails were not sent by the Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission and they are likely an attempt to steal personal information or funds from unsuspecting customers," said turnpike Executive Director Richard Hodges. "This warning may help prevent the turnpike's valued E-ZPass customers from being scammed."
The scam has also been reported in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Massachusetts and Washington, D.C.
Customers who have questions about the validity of a message regarding their E-ZPass should contact the turnpike's customer service line at (440) 234-2081, ext. 1075.
