USPS address change scam
Oct 29, 2018
Monetary Loss: $79.95
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.
I believed that I was changing my address on an approved USPS website and that the charge was $1.00. Luckily, my bank's fraud department contacted me because I had actually been charged $79 and they reported that they had had numerous instances of this type of fraud occurring with this company.
Thought I was on the USPS website to get my mail forwarded for a dollar. Input my card info and found out I was getting charged $39.95. I hit exit on the transaction during the review your order screen but was still charged the $39.95. There's also no phone numbers listed anywhere on the website to call these people.
Falsely appearing like USPS change of address website, so once you fill out the form and do the credit card info (Because the USPS requires this,) I found that my account was charged $79.99. I have to now wait for the holiday weekend to be over to call them for the refund and hope I get it.
