          Just a heads up – SunPass, Florida’s electronic toll collection system, has issued a warning to its customers regarding a new phishing scam. The scam involves fake text messages claiming that drivers’ toll payments are overdue.

          Official Alert from SunPass
          On Thursday morning, SunPass sent an email to its customers alerting them to this fraudulent activity. The email emphasized that SunPass does not request payments or immediate actions via text messages.

          Legitimate Communication Channels
          SunPass clarified that any legitimate communications will only come from the following sources:

          Details of the Scam
          The scam involves text messages that urge recipients to make prompt payments to avoid additional fees. These messages also include a link to a fake website designed to collect personal information. SunPass reassured customers that these messages are not sent by them and that they are actively monitoring the system to prevent such incidents.
