Change of address scam
Apr 8, 2019
Monetary Loss: $79.95
Thought I was using the USPS change of address. USPS charges my credit card $1.05. So I didn’t realize I was scammed until I checked my bank account and found the $79.95 charge. I’m going to call them I. The morning and hope they will give me a refund.
I wanted to change address with the USPS. Typed in USPS change of address and this site came up. Filled out all necessary information and then I realized that there was no verification of the price I was paying so I went back and my bank was deducted the $79.95 for the services. Called the number listed and the customer service rep was rude and did not want to refund my money. First said he would give it to me for half, then he said he would charge me 9.95 for the confusion. At this time, I felt totally ripped off and told him that I had already seen where two different people filed complaints against this company. then he agreed to refund my money and gave me a confirmation number. Money was returned immediately.
I went to change my address online and believed that Mymovingchanges.com was associated with USPS. USPS only charges $1 to have your address changed, but MyMovingchanges.com scammed me for $79.95. I will contact them to cancel the charge, if not I will dispute the charges.
