A few months ago, Bowen was on Facebook and saw an ad for discounted Christmas stamps from what she thought was a USPS website.

“And I was like this is a good deal you know get 20, 30 dollars off and send your Christmas cards and I ordered them,” she said.

Weeks later, she received a package of USPS holiday wreath stamps from 2019.

“I opened them up and they looked real but I still didn’t feel really good about it,” she said.

So, Bowen took them to the post office — just to be sure.

USPS says the number of counterfeit stamps being sold online has escalated. If they’re sold at a discounted price between 20 to 50% off, that should be a big indicator to you that it’s a scam.
