Ohio Turnpike warns E-ZPass® customers of email scam

The Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission warns its approximately 150,000 customers not to open or respond to an email from “E-ZPass Info,” as seen below.

“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 OTIC Executive Director Richard Hodges. “This warning may help prevent the Turnpike’s valued E-ZPass customers from being scammed.”

This e-mail scam has also been reported in the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. Customers should delete the email below if they receive it. If you have questions about the validity of any other message from E-ZPass you may call the Turnpike’s Customer Service Center at (440) 234-2081, ext. 1075. The FBI encourages those receiving the phishing emails to file a complaint at http://www.ic3.gov .
