NC agencies warn toll drivers of email scam
RALEIGH, N.C. — The N.C. Turnpike Authority is warning motorists of phony emails stating they must pay for outstanding tolls.
The NCTA said the emails are from “E-Z Pass Customer Service Center” with “Payment for driving on Toll Road” in the subject line.
The N.C. Department of Transportation said a link directing customers to an invoice or payment portal is included in the email.
NCDOT said that N.C. Quick Pass would never request payment by email and users should verify the authenticity of any sender before clicking a link.
