Tolling customers warned to be aware of scam emails

21 OCTOBER 2015

Roads and Maritime Services has advised customers to beware of scam emails which incorrectly state they are from Roads and Maritime Services tolling.

These emails, which were identified by independent organisation AusCERT, the Australian Cyber Emergency Response Team, contain malware and should not be opened.

The emails are designed to appear as a legitimate e-toll communication. Early investigations show these are being generated from South Korea.

The nature of the virus is not yet established however initial reports indicate a recipient’s computer crashes if the malware is activated.

Roads and Maritime is working with NSW Police and authorities to identify those responsible for the scam.
