WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — SunPass is warning drivers about fake text messages claiming their tolls are overdue.

An email sent to customers Thursday morning alerted customers to a phishing scam.

"To our valued SunPass customers, please note that SunPass does not ask customers via text to make a payment or take immediate action on their account," the email said.
