Illinois Tollway Issues Phishing Scam Alert

NBC News Chicago reports, the Illinois Tollway is another toll agency warning motorists about a phishing scam aimed at tricking people into paying bogus bills. “According to a press release, the Tollway says that some customers have been receiving text messages from the ‘Illinois toll way,’ detailing outstanding toll amounts that the customers owed.” I-PASS customers are advised to ignore the texts and make a report to the Internet Crime Complaint Center.

TRN notes, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the New York Thruway also recently issued warnings about text scams.
