Video: Scam artists using U.S Postal Service to steal identities

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Scam artists have figured out how to use the United States Postal Service to steal your identity.

The scammers are redirecting people’s mail to rip off personal information.

The mail stopped coming to Frank and Rebecca Ronquillo’s house. Then, they received a letter from the Postal Service saying it received a change-of-address order to forward mail.

Rebecca said “Are you serious?”

Because they did not forward their mail, she called the Postal Service to stop it.

“Can you tell me where it’s being sent? She said we can’t. Seriously?” Rebecca said.
