Philippine Postal Service – be cautious

Credit history card and postal services theft and fraud in the Philippines.  I have had quite excellent luck with postal provider in Iloilo Metropolis and now in Tigbauan, Iloilo.  When I was corresponding with my spouse to be employing the Lucena City put up business, a lot of what I despatched her disappeared.  Here’s a nightmare account of a foreigner who had his abroad financial institution mail despatched to him as a result of the Philippine Postal Services.  I know some others who have experienced no PhilPost complications but I continue on to get my mail from the U.S. (together with renewal credit history playing cards, ATM cards, financial statements and so forth) by means of FedEx which I truly feel is much more safe.  I use www.usabox.com.  See my write-up on that excellent provider.   Here’s the story.

“I had a credit history card despatched to me through the mail that I never ever acquired. Furthermore I experienced some other mail arrive up missing. The men and women that obtained my credit rating card were capable to activate the card, persuade my credit history union to transfer money from my account to the credit card and ended up ready to charge around 50K (thats pounds and not php). There was another expat at do the job that experienced the exact same detail occur to him. I have my mail despatched to the household and he has his despatched to perform.

The persons experienced the physical card. There is no doubt in my intellect that it was done prior to the card at any time arriving at my house. In other phrases it was not my maid. She is not clever plenty of. Another issue they did was to have the financial institution improve all my make contact with data. Their get hold of with my bank was all finished by cellphone.

they also seriously knew what they were accomplishing as they moved quickly and ordered significant merchandise at superior conclusion stores. They also acquired well more than a million php value of Rustons (ed an upscale Philippine retail chain) gift certificates.

The NBI (Philippine National Bureau of Investigation) would not even seriously examine it. Of course Rustons also refused to cancel the present certificates and even informed me that they would honor them.

I would hardly ever ship anything at all of significance by the mail. maybe some are lucky but I was not.

The amusing detail is that I could in no way demonstrate correctly how it took place. None could comprehend that a credit rating card would at any time be sent by the regular mail. The police and everyone else held telling me that anyone experienced to sign for it.”
