U.S. Postal Inspection Service is the law enforcement branch of the
U.S. Postal Service, empowered by federal laws and regulations to investigate
and enforce over 200 federal statutes related to crimes against the
U.S. Mail, the Postal Service and its employees. Postal Inspectors investigate
any crime in which the U.S. Mail is used to further a scheme, whether
it originated in the mail, by telephone or on the Internet. The use
of the U.S. Mail is what makes it a mail fraud issue.
If evidence of a postal-related violation exists, Postal Inspectors may seek prosecutive or administrative action against a violator; however, if money is lost to a fraudulent scheme conducted through the mail, Inspectors do not have the authority to ensure you are refunded your loss and cannot require that products, services or advertisements, on the Internet or elsewhere, be altered.
Postal Inspectors base their investigations of mail fraud on the number, pattern and substance of complaints received from the public. The Postal Inspection Service is interested in your concerns and will carefully review the information you provide.
If you feel you've been victimized in a mail fraud scheme that in any way involves the U.S. Mail, submit a Mail Fraud Complaint Form to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
