FDOT scam warning


Florida drivers need to watch out but not just on the road.
The Florida Department of Transportation says motorists should be wary of what's showing up in their e-mail inboxes.
A fake email is circulating the state.

It says it is from toll payment operation EZ pass and it is asking drivers to pay their debt for driving on a toll road.

The e-mail claims to have sent multiple invoices to drivers seeking payment.
"If anyone receives a suspicious letter or email from a toll agency, they should find the valid phone number and call to confirm the validity of the document."

The Florida Department of Transportation says a few drivers have already been contacted and they hope to stop the scam by getting the word out.
