Mike's Story: USPS Change of Address Form Used to Steal From Him

Financial Stories

Mike's mail was sent to New Jersey instead of his California address when someone filled out a U.S. Postal Service change of address card in his name. He lost $4,500 on one credit card and $6,000 on another as a result of this. He complained to the Post Office, but hasn't heard back from them.


Mike's name has been changed to protect his privacy.
