The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is warning drivers to be on the lookout for possible scammers trying to trick them into sending payments.
FDOT officials said there’s a fake company out there called Toll Enforcement, LLC.
The company is trying to pull a fast one on the many drivers who take tolls not just around Tampa Bay area but also the state, officials say.
Florida Turnpike Authority News Release — Drivers on Florida’s Turnpike and other state and county toll roads are being warned today of a potentially fraudulent collection effort on the part of a company called Toll Enforcement, LLC, which may be attempting to dupe drivers into sending payments. A news release detailing the scheme was sent to news media in Florida Tuesday afternoon, and it was accompanied by pictures of real toll violation notices. However, state officials stopped short of calling the collection an outright toll scam.
“We’re calling it an alleged fraud collection practice until we have proof that it’s otherwise,” said Chad Huff, spokesman for the Florida Department of Transportation. Mr. Huff made is comments during an interview with TurnpikeInfo.com. “It’s better to say it’s a company that’s operating that we’re not familiar with.”
The real Toll Collection Inovice looks like the one below. It includes a photo of your car and other features that the scam company doesn’t include in their invoice.
