BALTIMORE (AP) — Transportation officials in Maryland are warning the public about a scam involving E-ZPass.

The Maryland Transportation Authority on Wednesday warned that several phony emails are circulating requesting E-ZPass Maryland customers to pay their tolls debts online. Transportation officials say the emails are a scam, and that scammers are using the emails to try to obtain personal information. Transportation officials say the emails should be ignored or deleted.

The transportation authority says E-ZPass Maryland does send out emails for upcoming events, projects or surveys. But the agency says it will never send unsolicited emails demanding payment or requesting personal information.
