I was attempting to change my address online and it was supposed to be a USPS company and original charges were supposed to be 1.05 and ended up taking close to 90 dollars out of my account. Fake website set up to take your money but looks legitimate but is far from it.
I Google searched "usps change of address" to update my address with the postal service and went to what I thought was the actual USPS website to submit my forwarding address/address change. I was under the impression that I would be changed a dollar and some change. I admit that I possibly wasn't paying extremely close attention, but the link I clicked and the website I was directed to seemed legitimate and I did not think I had any reason to be suspicious. I DEFINITELY did not ever authorize the $79.95 charge I saw on my bank statement about a week later from mypostalchanges.org (interestingly, this website was not even in my browser history from the day I submitted my change of address). They did not give me a receipt or any indication that I was going to be charged this amount. I went to their website and called the number provided where an automated voice immediately tried persuade me to get a "50% refund and keep the services" which supposedly included putting my number on the national do-not-call list, reduce junk mail, and some other stuff. Of course I said NO and they then offered the full refund, minus the dollar and some change that the post office charges. I said yes to that option, so we will see if I actually get money refunded to me in the next few days. If not, I plan to follow up with my bank directly to dispute the charge. This is definitely a complete scam meant to make people believe they are filing their address change with the post office directly. Do not give them your credit card information.
It looks like the United States post office change of address which should only cost $1.05 but then you’ll see your credit card charge of $79.95. When you call they will immediately credit your credit card account, no questions asked.
They claim they put you on a do not call list, forward your change of address to 25 contacts, reduce junk mail and help you save money on utilities.
None of these things happened in the time that the charge was made and when I caught it a week later, upon looking closely at my credit card statement.

I wanted to change my address. Got to what looked like usps and was directed to mypostalchange.org to change my address. That charged me $80 to change address. They never said the price anywhere until after I gave them all my info. Every other time I've changed my address its cost me less then $5. This is a complete scam targeted at people who are who are already spending a ton of money to move state.

I went online and typed in "postal address change" and "MyPostalChanges.org" came up on the top of the search list. Since it ended with "org" it sounded like the post office because regular companies do NOT have a website ending with "org."
After I opened the website it offered different forwarding options like "temporary, permanent" - it also showed the "Post Office Eagle emblem" - the website is CLEARLY intended to trick consumers into believing that they are at the regular U.S. Postal Service website, especially older citizens who are not used to using computers and the internet. It did say that for this "address change" a fee of $79.95 will be charged!!! WHO in their right mind would pay $79.95 for the address change anyway?
This website is clearly made to mislead people and scam them out of their money! Since I believed it was the U.S. post office website for address changes, I was willing to pay the $1 with a credit card as required. I did not get an email receipt or confirmation either - HOWEVER, about a month later, when I received my credit card statement, it showed that they had charged $79.95 for the "address change!"
I immediately went to my bank to report this as a scam and ask for my money back. I also called the number related to the charge and I asked if they are the U.S. post office - the guy said "we are a third party" - I told him that I never authorized a payment of $79.95 and that I want my money back and that I am going to report them as a scammer. He said that "you will loose" - I kept telling him that they are misleading and scamming people but he did NOT seem to care. They are targeting people with their misleading website - others have also reported them as scammers - this needs to be stopped!
