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.
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.
