What legal action can be taking against change of address scam fraud~

Salisbury, MD |

I just recently moved into my new home on Dec. 25 2012 which I currently resign. A couple of weeks ago I noticed that I was not receiving any mail at all. I asked, my mail lady how come I have not been receiving any mail and she says, someone has put in a change of address form in from my adddress with my name on it to a different adress. Please help me with advice of legal action I can take thank you for your time.

  1. Start by contacting your local postmaster to request a copy of the address change order and instructions on how to revoke it. Then, with the information regarding the address to which your mail was diverted, contact law enforcement.

  2. The best police authority for your problem is the US Postal authority itself.

    The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California.
