Ohio Turnpike warns of E-ZPass scam

Posted: Updated:
BEREA, Ohio -

 The Ohio Turnpike warns its approximately 150,000 customers not to open or respond to an email from "E-ZPass Info."

"The emails were not sent by the turnpike and they are likely an attempt to steal personal information or funds from unsuspecting customers," said Executive Director Richard Hodges.

"This warning may help prevent the Turnpike's valued E-ZPass customers from being scammed." said Hodges.

This e-mail scam has been reported in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Massachusetts and the District of Columbia, thus far.

Customers with questions about the validity of a message from E-ZPass should call the Turnpike's Customer Service Center at (440) 234-2081, ext. 1075.
