Here's what the WA DOT says you should be looking for:
If you are ever questioning if a message is real, don’t click on any links! Instead, log into your Good To Go! account to verify.
If the message is truly from Good To Go! you will see the same alert on your account dashboard. If you don’t have an account (and haven’t given us your contact information in a customer service case), we would not have a phone number to contact you.
The scammers also try to make their fake websites look real by copying our official website. Please know we will never ask for your birth date or driver’s license number to pay a toll bill.

So just be aware another scam is going around and always go to the originating website instead of a link to be safe.
