NEW YORK — The U.S. Postal Service is making adjustments after a major increase in change-of-address fraud.
That’s when scammers change your address on file to get sensitive information from your mail with the goal of stealing your money.
CBS2 has been investigating this big problem.
Just this month, the USPS announced new policies after a recent report found a 167% jump in change-of-address fraud. CBS2 is asking if the Postal Service’s new plan will actually fix the problem.
