Md. Transportation Authority Warns of E-ZPass Scam

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP/WBOC) - Transportation officials in Maryland are warning the public about a scam involving E-ZPass.

The Maryland Transportation Authority on Wednesday warned that several phony emails are circulating requesting E-ZPass Maryland customers to pay their tolls debts online. Transportation officials say the emails are a scam, and that scammers are using the emails to try to obtain personal information such as credit card information, Social Security numbers, user names and passwords. Transportation officials say the emails should be ignored or deleted.

The transportation authority said E-ZPass Maryland does send out emails for upcoming events, projects or surveys. But the agency said it will never send unsolicited emails demanding payment or requesting personal information.

The public is urged to call the E-ZPass Maryland Customer Service Center at 1-888-321-6824 to report if they have been contacted by someone attempting to obtain personal information, or if they have any questions about their account information.
