SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – 22News has new information on fake emails that aim to steal people’s personal information.
E-Z Pass users may have received an email that says, “You have not paid for driving on a toll road. This invoice is sent repeatedly.”
The email then tells you to download the invoice by clicking on a link. But experts warn; you should never trust links embedded in an email.
Director of Springfield Consumer Information Milagros Johnson said, “Open up a different page, and then go to the official page for E-Z Pass. Log in to your account and see if there’s anything suspicious, or anything that you need to look into and inquire.”
She also recommends checking emails on a computer, instead of on a smart phone.
Looking at it on a big screen can help you better catch suspicious details.
