Another attempt at SMS fraud

Be aware of attempted fraud regarding outstanding tolls from "AutoPASS" or "The Norwegian Road Administration" / "Statens vegvesen"

Ferde has again been made aware that several people have received SMSes from "Autopass" informing them of outstanding tolls, with a link to go to details.

This SMS is a phishing scam where fraudsters send fake SMS and try to trick people into providing information or paying false claims.

AutoPASS or the National Road Administration (Statens vegvesen) are not a payment intermediary for toll passes and they do not send out SMS with information about outstanding tolls or unpaid bills.

Fraud attempts often have typos and come from foreign/unknown phone numbers, and have links to unknown web addresses.

So if you receive an SMS about payment of tolls, it is a fraud and you must not click on the link.
