I was scamed by the website

Monetary Loss: $39.95
i was scamed by the website was because i thought it was the USPS site but it wasnt
My sister and I moved, and had to change our address. I used the U.S postal service website. She however did not. She clicked on the first link that popped up when she searched "change my address" in google. It asked her for all the things that the federal postal service does, but when it asks for your card information it charges you $80 for "Processing fees." Her bank notified her of the charge which came from Colorado. This website needs to be taken down or dealt with. It is the first "Add" link that shows up on a google search. If you are changing your mailing address don't use anything other than www.usps.com.
Google needs to address this USPS address change scam

Monetary Loss: $0
I have changed my address for years online and never had a problem. When I did the last one, 2 days ago, nowhere did I notice anything different that would make me believe it wasn’t a USPS website. I expected the 1.00 charge. I noticed a 79.95 charge to our account after changing my home address which was from a company My Moving Changes. After calling the ChangeMyAddress # today, and telling them that their website states that they will give me a FULL refund within 30 days of cancelling, they tried to keep $1.95 for a service charge. Told them, FULL refund, $79.95; got a confirmation # and e-mail that supposedly my credit card would not be charged..waiting to see?
They are very clever, they have a few different companies all working together to scam changemyaddress.org,/mymovingchanges.com/mypostalchanges.org. BEWARE!!!
changing our address I searched for USPS address change. This site appeared as "online postal address change" and upon opening it it looked like official form, including eagle. I know USPS charges $1 so when it asked for credit card I gave info. No mention of cost, I got a confirmation, again no mention of cost. Someone is making a lot of money.
So I recently moved and I needed to change my address. So I went online and thought I was on the USPS website, however I was not. I went on to get charged $39.95 and did not know I was getting that charge until after everything had happened. I haven’t been able to find a number for them either.
