Fraud on viaTOLL payment
“We warn you against false e-mails signed by the ‘viaTOLL Team’, which encourage you to pay under the contract in the viaTOLL system and refer you to a false website” – MF informed in a release.
According to the ministry, such e-mails are attempts to extort login and banking credentials, and their purpose is to steal money from the victim’s bank account.
