Type of a scam Government Agency Imposter

Recently moved and went to usps.com to change my address, and after 2 days was charged 79.95 for a mail forwarding charge. I just researched this and saw it has been a common scam. I have the screenshot of the charge on my bank account. Who do I send it to to get a refund ?

As you see, the text tried to make me believe I had something being delivered so you go to fill out the questionaire and I believe it’s a ploy to collect personal information. After filling out the questionnaire you get a choice of crappy products to choose from. Sometimes you have to pay for the shipping. I don’t think the postal service can do this.

Receive text message saying "Urgent notification for your USPS delivery ###### from dd/mm/yyyy. Go to: m1shv.info/lvQREc6AJ0." The date is from back in MARCH. Once you click on the link it first goes to a m1shv.info website…. then a jtuzd.rdtk.io… then to https://rewardsprogram.daooftoday.com. Once there it is telling you that it is a USPS survey and if you complete a survey to say thank you you can get a reward up to $120. If you click OK to start it tells you Congratulations. That you’ve been chosen to receive a "special reward from our sponsors" and that after you answer a few quick questions you can choose from "luxury watches, designer purses, exclusive jewelry sets, skin care products, and weight loss supplements." It tells you that the "exciting offer" is only available to the first 10 users who have received a "special invitation" and will expire that same day. I did not continue clicking after that.

I was actually waiting delivery of a package today (7/29/2020), so when I received an email in my inbox from the USPS indicating that an attempt had been made to deliver a package, I responding by simply indicating that the postal person could deliver my package the next business day. Giving no other information than that, I pushed the reply button and then immediately saw a list of suspicious-looking contact names attached to the USPS forwarding address (I have included these "contacts" in the email address used by Scammer section). The email was absolutely authentic looking, including the USPS logo. I was duped because just by chance, I was expecting a postal package delivery, but the markup of the form also lended itself to authenticity. Don’t know if this was "phishing" or some other nebulous scam, but I think folks need to be alerted. Fortunately, I didn’t give any other information other than that someone would be home to sign for the expected package. I’m writing and filing this complaint in order to alert others to this deception.

I received notice from the USPS in the mail that my mailing address had been changed. I checked with my local USPS and they said that someone had apparently changed it online. I filed a mail fraud case with them, after getting my address straightened out. I, also, plan to write a letter to the local paper to let the public know about the issue.

Received a email about a position that I applied for months ago. I thought I was actually scheduled for a interview but the letter was fake. It has the USPS logo as the header. The scanner asked for personal infomation. I did fill some fills but didn’t complete request. The scanners even have a GIS page. GIS perform background checks for potential employers. I have went through the steps to protect my identity. I still feel uneasy for future situations regarding my identity. If anyone applied for a open position with USPS look out for these scanners.

Total money lost $39.95

Type of a scam Employment

I heard that the local post office where hiring. So i went on to the websites to apply. When Applying the site said that there was a fee of $39.95 to register. I paid the fee, so i could apply and take the exams need for the jobs. Even after registering the site sent me an email verifying the information, but even applying for the jobs it would not allow me to take the exams. This was a red flag for me because even if they aren’t excepting applications I still should have been able to take the exam. I contacted the person in charger of training/hiring for the Lexington KY Post Office to tell her that I paid the fee and would like to take the exam and ask why I was’t able to take it. She ask what fee, all fees have been waved for awhile. she told me that I was probably hacked and and should contact the bank and BBB, so here I am.

I would like to say the website looked very really. and after I registered they even sent me a conformation email to conform my information.

I am not sure if it matters but i was trying to apply for a job in KY and the withdraw came out of TN. After conforming with the post office that there isn’t a fee. I called the bank I am working on trying to get my money back but they say they have to get it from the post office, cause the withdraw has the post office name of it. so that is a long shot. I am out the money more than likely but hopefully I can stop this from happening to someone else.

I received a phone call from a "reverend" so-and-so from UPS or USPS. He asked how I was, I responded with "ok". He then asked another question that the appropriate response would have been "yes". At that point I hung up. Caller was calling my cellular phone number and his location that came up on caller id was Jamaica.
