If you want to receive your letters, parcels, or packages, don't have it sent via Philpost! There are countless stories about people getting their stuff stolen by employees of Philpost or their letters never arriving in its destination.
It is so bad that USPS doesn't accept express mail going to Philippines anymore since Philpost doesn't comply with the express mail delivery schedule. I was expecting a series of post dated checks and it was "unfortunately" sent via regular mail because the sender didn't want to shell out $50 for FedEx. It has been over a month now and it still hasn't arrived. Funny thing is, whenever I get an ordinary letter from US (no check inside), it always arrive within 2 weeks. I have a feeling it was stolen already.
After doing some research, I found out that some people get their checks stolen by Philpost people and even cashed by third party money changers. How is it possible? If the check is not crossed, it can be transferred or ‘endorsed’ by the payee. In this case, the thief can fake the signature of the payee and sell the check to a money changer. The money changer then deposits it to their bank account.
This is a serious hassle for me coz I really need those post dated checks! I hate Philpost so much! Why can't they improve their service? To those of you who has important documents to send, don't send it via Philpost if you want a hassle free experience!
Someone I know ordered some stuff online and when the parcel arrived, the box was empty! Worst thing was, she even had to pay taxes that are almost double the parcel's value at customs!
So yeah, Philpost is badddd news. Real bad. Don't use it. Period.
