I typed usps change of address in my google search and the first thing that popped up looked just like the usps website. It said to put in my debit card information to verify my identity and I knew it costs $1.05 to change your address so I wasnt too worried about it. I checked my bank account this morning and it says changeof-my-mailaddress charged me $59.95 without approval to my bank account.

Total money lost $59.95
Type of a scam Moving
This web address was sent to me by my landlord so I could get my mail forwarded where I am staying temporarily. The website mimics the USPS, but four days after providing my address and card number for "identification purposes," a charge of $59.95 from "FORWARD US MAIL" appeared on my account.

Type of a scam Government Agency Imposter
This website pretends to be able to change your address for free, but any changes that may be required and they charge money ($40 for us) for it. This is predatory, as the USPS offers this service for practically free. They are just some scamming, third-party organization that takes advantage of people who do not select the correct link when trying to change their address.
