Lost my I-Pass. Now what?

Okay, I didn't exactly lose it. I traded my car in, and not being a native of Chicagoland, I had completely forgotten I had one in my car. By the time I remembered, the car dealer had sold it to a wholesaler and it had been taken to who knows where and sold at auction.

So now what? I'm guessing the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority will want me to forfeit my security deposit. Does anyone know how much it will be?

Looks like the deposit is $10.

If you lose it:

If you would like a replacement I-PASS, you pay only the deposit, and your account balance will be transferred to the replacement transponder. If the lost or stolen transponder is located and the unit is returned to a Customer Service Center, the deposit will be refunded in full.

The above advice, absolutely.
If I lost mine, my greatest fear would be paying expensive tolls someone else might rack up.
