Massachusetts transportation officials are warning E-ZPass customers about a suspicious email some have reported getting.

The Department of Transportation said Tuesday people should not open or respond to an email that says it’s from “E-ZPass Customer Service Center” with the subject, “Payment for driving on toll road.”

Officials say it’s not from E-ZPass and is likely a phishing scam.        

Some customers in Massachusetts and other states have received the email.        

Officials say anyone with questions about whether a message is valid may call the E-ZPass Customer Service Center at 877-627-7746, and may check their individual account through its website.
