Is Toll Roads Settlement a Scam?

The Toll Roads Settlement is not a scam. If you drove on the 73, 133, 241 and/or 261 toll roads in Southern California, or provided information to the operator of those toll roads, you may be entitled to a payment from one or two class action settlements. Two Settlements have been reached in a class action lawsuit about whether TCA, 3M, and BRiC (the “Defendants”) improperly collected and shared with third parties the “Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) of operators of motor vehicles that used the 73, 133, 241, and/or 261 Toll Roads in Orange County, California or other individuals whose PII was provided to Defendants. The Defendants deny the allegations in the lawsuit. The Court has decided that certain allegations against Defendants lack merit but has not ruled on the remaining claims.

Both Settlements cover vehicle operators, but one covers a shorter time period. The settlement between Plaintiffs and the TCA and BRiC (“TCA Settlement”) covers the time period from April 13, 2015 to June 16, 2021. The settlement between Plaintiffs and 3M (“3M Settlement”) covers from April 13, 2015 to June 30, 2015.

The Settlements offer Settlement Class Members Cash Payments and/or Penalty Forgiveness as set forth on this website. You can receive benefits under both Settlements if you are a member of both Settlement Classes.

The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlements. If it does, and after any appeals are resolved, benefits will be distributed to those who submit qualifying Claim Forms or are found eligible for automatic forgiveness of penalties. Please be patient.

    Via E-ZPass legit Facebook page in 2014:

    Phishing Scam Alert: There is a phishing email* being sent to drivers across the nation claiming they owe money for unpaid E-ZPass tolls. This is not an email from The Toll Roads, the Transportation Corridor Agencies, E-ZPass or E-ZPass tolling agencies. E-ZPass is used to collect tolls electronically on the East Coast; FasTrak is used to collect tolls electronically on the West Coast.

    Please do not open or respond to the email if you receive it. To see an example of the email, please click here.

    The settlement isn't a scam, but scammers are taking advantage of it. I received an email saying "Our Records Show That You Drove on the 73, 133, 241, and/or 261 Toll Roads..." (including the random capitalization). The email that it was sent to has no correlation to toll roads, it was clearly from a breach.

    I submitted an automated claim as sent to me by the Administrator. My confirmation# is W16... The claim I submitted was for the 73 only it should also include the 133 and the 241 which I used frequently during the period. Please advise...
