Malliotakis: E-ZPass Customers Beware of Email Scam

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C,I-Brooklyn, Staten Island) warns E-ZPass Customers of a newly-discovered email phishing scam that attempts to collect unpaid tolls. The E-ZPass Service Center ensures drivers and other consumers that the only form of inquiry for missed payments is done via the US Postal Service, not by email. Malliotakis recently warned of the ‘Green Dot Money Card Scam’ in which callers claim to be from a utility company, IRS or even pretend to be a relative in distress asking for money to be transferred via Green Dot Card.

“It is an unfortunate reality that people go to great lengths to devise plans and scam unsuspecting individuals,” said Malliotakis. “These scam artists are leaving no stone unturned and must be stopped. To all E-ZPass holders, please be careful and share this information with others who may also be affected.”

To be sure there is no further harm done, the Port Authority of the New York and New Jersey has advised the public to delete any email received by E-ZPass, as it is not an authorized communication by the agency. Customers with any questions or concerns are encouraged to contact the E-ZPass New York Customer Service Center at 800-333-8655.

Malliotakis Celebrates Return of Brooklyn’s B37

After four years of petitions, rallies, and advocating, Brooklyn bus riders finally have their B37 back! The New York State Legislature included an increase in funding for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to help restore the bus which was eliminated in 2010 as a cost-cutting measure.

Since 2010, then-candidate for Assembly Nicole Malliotakis rallied with transportation advocates, elected officials, members of the Transport Workers Union (TWU) representing bus drivers and civic and business groups for the bus’s return. Since being elected Malliotakis held at least three rallies and launched an online petition titled “Give Me My Bus Back.”

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-C-Bay Ridge-Staten Island) said she is pleased the fight has been won. “After four years and passionate advocacy from all corners of the community, I’m pleased to join my colleagues to celebrate the B37’s return to service. We once again proved that by working together and advocating for Bay Ridge’s needs, we can achieve real results.”

Since taking office, Malliotakis has successfully fought for restoration and expansion of bus service in her district including the X1, X27, B8, B37, B64, S76 and S93 lines. She has made transportation issues a priority of her office.
