Stolen Adsense Check Found in Benguet
Tuesday, March 13, 2007


Captain's Log Stardate -316196.59

Just to give you an idea on how far Benguet is from Quezon City, look at the image above. I haven't been to Benguet but according to Kuya Noli, it's an approx. 8-hour drive.

Google just sent the copy of my stolen check and according to the stamps and computer prints on the check, it was deposited last February 15, 2007 at the La Trinidad, Benguet branch of Allied Bank.

I've already called the branch and according to Allona, the person I talked to, my check was deposited by a Money Changer. The money changer apparently bought my check from the person who "stole" it. Deja vu?

The bank said that they will immediately notify the account holder (money changer) and would contact me again in a few days. She was even surprised when I gave my phone number as the area code is (2). I asked her, "Hindi ba kayo nagtaka at Quezon City yung address nung check at dyan pa umabot sa Benguet?". She keeps on apologizing and said that she would do her best to help me. She also said that I shouldn't be worried and I will get my money back once they've notified the account holder and receive a notice from Citibank.

Not to be worried? Suuure... my Adsense check for this month might already be in the hands of these postal bastards and I should be worried? Everyone using the Philippine Postal Service should be worried.

If banks like these allow for 2nd endorsements of checks as easy as this, you're better of sending your money without even enclosing it in envelopes via Phipost. My check is in US Dollars, they should have atleast required the money changer to submit a copy of the ID the supposedly seller/owner of my check. That way, we could post the face of that damn bastard and trace where the hell he lives. Or better yet, banks should not accept 2nd endorsement checks especially if the check is in foreign currency or the one depositing it is a Money Changer.

My Adsense checks usually arrives every 20th-23rd of every month. My check was deposited much more early than it usually arrives, so my current check for this month might already be in the hands of those Philpost bastards.

It doesn't matter if your check is in Philippine Peso or US Dollars to be stolen and en-cashed. The only solution is to have your checks delivered via secured shipping, as in Adsense's case --secured $24 mail from DHL. Following Yuga's advice, I've already set my payments on hold, maybe about 3 months, and have joined the DHL club.

I've already removed Philpost as one of our available shipping methods on our online store, and I hope that everyone who reads this post will stop using this useless and service.

Sending something via Philpost is like giving your things away for free.

Well, I wonder what the account holder would say. I suggest you report this to the police or to someone who can do something about this. This is not a small deal, this is a BIG issue! Make sure the persons involved go to jail, don't just be a quiet victim, be a loud one!

Yike! I'm still waiting for my very first AdSense cheque and already I'm worried.

It's good that you were able to trace your lost check. Hopefully you get your money or the check back. I'm sure this is not an isolated case. I'm thinking a syndicate or group of people are behind this. Bloggers in the Philippines who have Adsense should take the necessary measures to keep their checks safe. Philippine Postal Service really sucks! The government should do something about this. Like what Mr Postman said, the authorities should be notified about this.

"it's so easy, a caveman can do it".

"it is sooo easy, an Igorot can do it".... ;p

...this is one more reason why we need Paypal to get the Philippines delisted from its list of "limited" countries! Pronto!

...on the other hand, this is one more reason why Paypal would put the Philippines on hold as a "limited" country forever...!
