The MTA has issued a warning that an email going around to E-ZPass holders is actually a phishing scam. The email, which looks as though it was sent by the E-ZPass service center, asks customers to download an invoice with a list unpaid tolls. (Hint: don't do that.)

A sample of the scam EZPass email, as provided by the MTA

The MTA has stated that this is not an authorized communication from the EZ-Pass center, and that any overdue invoice notifications would be sent through snail mail. They advise that you do not open the email or respond to it in any way.

If you have any questions about an email you received, E-ZPass encourages you to call their New York Customer Service Center at (800) 333-8655
