Iligan Post Office Scam?


For less than an hour, anybody could get a postal identification card (ID) at a local post office in Iligan City.

No requirements needed, just your 2×2 size photo, the registration form and the P340 payment.

No other ID is required. So a terrorist could get one in no time.

I did a little investigation by asking other bloggers online.

According to Kathy: “150 lang. 🙂 Las Pinas.”

Akosire: “I paid 300+ kc may dala ako 2×2 pics.. pag wala 400+ bayad. Im from pampanga.”

Mhar : “In our town, my mother paid P500 total.”

Ness: “i paid Php500 for my ID. Got it in San Juan Post office.”

Grace: “I remember paying Php350 and waited for 3 days bago makuha ang laminated postal ID.”

After I got my ID, I paid for my own lamination. Residents from other cities in the Philippines said their post office was the one who did the lamination.

I did not receive any receipt. A blogger from Manila paid a total P300, but on the receipt was only P175.00.

Postal ID
I need this postal ID for opening a bank account. Meaning, a terrorist could get his own bank account.

I hope the local post office head or the city mayor could do something about this. Let’s start now to curb corruption.

      Maybe you can, but you should get someone to do it for you, they may overcharge, especially for obvious foreigners.
