Monetary Loss: $79.95
Went to USPS address change site, entered my credit card info for a $1 charge fee. What I didn't realize when I hit confirm was that I had been redirected to a fake USPS site and charged 79.95. Additionally, my mail forwarding was not completed. I called the number and it said it was not in service. I have submitted a fraud claim with my bank.
I thought I was on USPS's official site to change my postal address in the US. Only after I had input all of the information required -- including a credit card number for the $1 charge -- did I realized I was /not/ on a sanctioned USPS site!
I thought I was changing my address and it would be the standard charge of 1.00 to change online but I just checked on my account and I was charged $79.95 and still haven’t received any mail forwarded at my new home yet . What can I do next and how can I be refunded ?
