PITTSBURGH - Representatives with E-ZPass have issued a warning to the general public about a phishing scam that has been brought to their attention.

Here is the full release from E-ZPass:

It has come to our attention that many people have received a notice like the one below.

Please be advised that this is not a communication from E-ZPass, but is likely a phishing scam. 

We advise you not to open or respond to that message. 

If you have any questions about the validity of any message received from E-ZPass, please contact your E-ZPass Customer Service Center at 877.736.6727 for guidance.

It is not clear how widespread this is but these emails have been reported in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey and D.C.

Each agency has its own server and customer database.

PA turnpike says its servers and customer data have NOT been compromised AND they have not heard of any other agency being compromised.

PA Turnpike believes the scammers got email addresses from other sources (that is, not hacked into systems).

In fact, according to the Boston Globe, some people who are not even EZPass customers also received this phishing email.

PA Turnpike does not require an email address to sign up and communicates via snail mail to its customers.

For more information, customers should call the EZ Pass where they signed up. In PA, that phone number is 1-877-736-6727.
