I wanted to change my address and did the usual google search to find what I was looking for. I thought I had clicked on the link leading me to the USPS but was mislead by this website "changemypostaladdress.com" because they were nearly identical to the process I used in the USPS website. I was told I'd be charcged $1.05 for the change of address but later found out the charge was actually $39.95. I tried contacting the website, but there's no email, no phone number. They do provide a physical address located somewhere in Malaysia. I tried sending an email using their "email/e-form" option, but the email message gets sent right back to me saying the mail could not be delivered due to domain owner policy restrictions. I don't know what to do. There's no way to contact anyone from this website. I can't believe I fell for such a scam. I feel like a fool.

You do not see anything that is written or typed down about the $39.95

 

This is the top part of the home page, nothing about $39.95, only stated $1.05 for changed of address.
