Scam by company representing itself as USPS
Sep 21, 2018
Monetary Loss: $79.00
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.
Evil scam. $80 charge for address change on fake Post Office website

Monetary Loss: $79.95
Thought I was changing my address on the USPS site.
I've never followed a scam link before, but this is nothing less than that.
To change your address.
They follow the same process USPS has on their site, and USPS charges $1, so I was expecting to give them my card #.
ALWAYS LOOK AT YOUR ADDRESS BAR WHEN FOLLOWING LINKS, before HANDING OVER ALL PERSONAL INFO... AND CREDIT CARD.
They said they'd refund the $79.95.
Asked if I wanted to have them still do the service for $1.95.
I pray these evil thieves don't sell off my credit card information.
AND actually refund my money "in a day or 2".
They just messed-up my bank account by $80 too. The day before I move.
THANKS GUYS! you are the worst.
I thought I was going to USPS.com to make an address change. Instead, I ended up providing my personal info at Change My Address dot org. I thought it looked different than the USPS that I am used to, but then I thought, I guess they've updated their site. Also, I was surprised to not see a cost before I entered my card info, but, as someone else said "that's on me". Now I have to deal with calling them and complaining because I, too, was charged $79.95!! What is this thing and why are they the first thing I get when I thought I typed in USPS address change. Damn.
We noticed a 79.95 charge to our account after changing our home address. I had changed mine and one other with no issues when done from my phone. When I did the last from my computer, nowhere did I notice anything different that would make me believe it wasn’t Usps website. I expected the 1.00 charge and it was 79.95. After calling and saying things like “scam articles online” and “I’m at the back now to fill out a dispute form” they said they will return all but 1.95 which is acceptable to us. BEWARE.
