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.
