Road Toll Phishing Scam Alert

Be aware of scammers posing as road toll companies saying you have a payment overdue.

22 August 2022

Individuals are being sent a message via SMS, Email or Whatsapp saying they have an outstanding road toll to pay, prompting them to click a link to complete the payment, or update their payment details.

This link directs the individual to a scam website that requests card details which are quickly stolen and used to set up a digital wallet on a mobile device operated by a scammer.

A verification code is sent to the individual via SMS, and if this verification code gets in the hands of a scammer, they will be able to purchase items using the new digital wallet.


  • If you receive an unexpected call, email, or SMS demanding payment, do not provide any information. Contact the company or person making the request through an established channel and verify the information before making any payment.
  • If you think you have provided your account details to a scammer, contact Heritage immediately.
  • If you’ve been a victim of a scam, you can report it to the ACCC via the report a scam page to help protect others from similiar scams. Visit
