USPS Warns About Fake Postage Stamps

Did your Mother’s Day card get returned in the mail?  You may have been scammed by a counterfeit postage stamp.

The U.S. Postal Service says it’s encountered a surge of fake stamps across the country.

They’re often sold online by scammers offering a great price for a book of stamps, which turn out to be fakes.

The USPS says you should only buy stamps at the post office itself, or from approved vendors.

Letters or packages with counterfeit postage will be considered ‘abandoned’, meaning the USPS can open or destroy it if necessary.

How often do you send things by physical mail?
