E-Z Pass = phishing scam

Did you get an e-mail that purported to be from E-Z Pass and informed you to pay up, or else? One that contained "In arrears for driving on toll road"?

You've heard the horror stories about people who didn't pay a few $0.35 or $0.75 tolls and quickly found themselves owing $600 to the Illinois Tollway and then fearing confiscation of their license plates or vehicles?

Don't click in the e-mail. It's a scam; phishing; delivers a virus to your computer.

There is a warning on the Illinois Tollway website about this and also on the E-Z Pass website. You can Google it for more information.

Don't say you haven't been warned...
