Buffalo man’s identity stolen after mail redirected to new address

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- A North Buffalo man is trying to regain control of his identity. A scammer stole his personal information by manipulating the U.S. Postal Service.

He’s warning others to be vigilant and calling on the USPS to change its procedures.

When Evan Cominsky got a letter in the mail from the USPS, he didn’t think anything of it.

It said the USPS received a change of address order and all mail would be forwarded to “the person named below”, and his name was listed.

“It didn’t have any new forwarding address, it just said my mail was going to continue, it looked like continue coming here,” said Cominsky.

But then their mail stopped. The Cominsky’s went to the post office.
