YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – If you have an E-Z Pass, be on the lookout for people trying to steal your personal information.
Since the beginning of summer, an email has been circulating, saying you didn’t pay a toll and should send money as soon as possible. The email provides a link to see the invoice.
But clicking that link can download a virus to your computer, which makes it simple for crooks to get what they’re looking for.
“Many of them look very legitimate, using E-Z Pass’ actual colors, stealing the logo,” Caitlin Driscoll of the Better Business Bureau said. “They are out to steal your personal and financial information off of your computer.”
Most E-Z Pass accounts are automatically set up to replenish the account from a bank account or credit card. Any unpaid toll would also come by regular mail.
