How to escalate a claim with Fastrak
This is random, but I thought I would pool the collective knowledge of this community about any tips in dealing with Fastrak I noticed that for the entire spring I had been charged on my Fastrak account for tolls on a car I sold 7 years ago. The new owner appeared to be doing some commuting on my account. There had been $200 dollars worth of tolls, and fortunately I noticed this because I am now working from home and have stopped commuting (and never use the bridges that this person was using). I called Fastrak and they said this should be simple: I followed their directions, made a claim and uploaded the required documents to show the car was no longer mine, and made sure that the car was removed entirely from my account.
I received an e-mail that a specialist would contact me within 5-7 days. This was in mid July. I have since made another claim, since I had not heard back on the first one. I plan to call again, but since the wait time is usually over an hour, and I know I need to speak with a specialist I'm not sure how effective it will be.
I have read news stories that Fastrak is in a state of crisis right now. I'm wondering if I will ever get my money back. Wondering if anyone has experience dealing with a Fastrak claim and has any ideas how to get connected to someone who will solve this kind of problem.
