The Bowling Green Police Division was made aware of an e-mail circulating that purports to be from the EZ Pass Service Center. The e-mail contains an official looking graphic from EZ Pass and it indicates that a customer has not paid for driving on a toll road. It then states ” The invoice can be downloaded here.” The link attached to the word “here” will attach an executable file to the persons computer. This file is a virus or malware. Do not respond to e-mails that come un expectedly or to which you have no current account.
The message as it appears will contain the below format and language:
|Dear customer,You have not paid for driving on a toll road. This invoice is sent repeatedly,
please service your debt in the shortest possible time.
The invoice can be downloaded here.
On Monday 8-4-14 the Bowling Green Police was made aware of a billing scam involving at least 3 phone calls to local businesses in which the caller stated they were with First Energy. The scammer claimed that the businesses were past due for electric bills and that they were sending out a technician to disconnect the business unless the bills were immediately paid. The businesses are not First Energy customers and recognized the calls as a scam . The numbers and names associated with the scam are as follows:
1-866-251-5398 Eric Smalls
1-866-978-7766 John Gordon
1-866-978-7766 ext 95 John Gordon
In calling the numbers back it was found that the scammers have changed tactics and now answer the phone as ” City of Bowling Green Disconnection.”
The City of Bowling Green Utilities Department does not rely exclusively on phone calls to warn of past due accounts and utilizes a more formal process of notification.
If your business receives a similar call do not provide them with any information. If you have a question about your business account call the Bowling Green Utilities Office at 419-354-6258.
As of 7:50 AM The traffic signal is functioning.
Notification: Traffic signal at Wooster Street and I75 not functioning. Temporary stop signs in place. Drive with caution in this area.
