FDOT Warns Of Potential Fraud Involving Collection Of Unpaid Tolls
FORT LAUDERDALE — Officials with the Florida Department of Transportation issued a public warning today asking people to be wary of any attempt made by a company calling itself TOLL ENFORCEMENT LLC to collect unpaid tolls.
“FDOT is aware of a letter that is being circulated by TOLL ENFORCEMENT, LLC that says ‘Final Warning Notice’ and proceeds to ask the recipient to immediately pay outstanding toll amounts, plus a fee of $50.00, with a cashier’s check or money order.” Said Chad Huff, spokesman for the Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise.
FDOT does not do business with any company by the name of TOLL ENFORCEMENT, LLC, and has posted a fraud alert on the Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise website, the SunPass Website, and the Toll-By-Plate website.
FDOT officials say that any toll violations or warnings issued by the department will be printed in official document form and will prominently feature the date, time and location of the alleged infraction as well as a photo of the vehicle passing through a toll plaza. Examples are provided as an attachment. The TOLL ENFORCEMENT, LLC document features none of these identifying traits.
Florida Highway Patrol, as well as the Miami-Dade Police Department and other local law enforcement are actively investigating this matter.
FDOT is asking any resident that receives one of these fraudulent documents to contact SunPass at 888-865-5352.
All information will be turned over to law enforcement for further investigation.
