Watch out for this new type of phishing email. This is another attempt to have you click on the link. It is an email from firstname.lastname@example.org and the subject line reads:
Indebtedness for driving on toll road
The content of the email looks like this:
If you click on the link “here”, your web browser will be taken to a web site that will try and load malware on your computer. If you have an E-ZPass account and you think you may have a violation, log into that account as you normally would and check there.
Here is another hint that the email is not normal. “Indebtedness for driving on toll road”. This is not a normal English phrase we would use to indicate you have a violation. If there is poor grammar in the email, that should be a red flag the email is not valid.
The main point to remember is – never click on a link in an email unless you have validated the email is truly from who it says it is. And even that can be hard to do.
