Phishing sample

Maryland Transportation Authority officials are warning of an email phishing scam that asks E-ZPass holders to pay their toll debts online.

The MdTA posted a sample of one of the phony emails, which claimed that the driver was "in arrears" and instructed the driver to "service your debt in the shortest possible time."

The MdTA says this is a scam email that seeks to obtain personal information and should be deleted. E-ZPass never asks for personal information in an email.

Anyone receiving such an email can report it to the E-ZPass Maryland Customer Service Center at 888-321-6824.
