    This happens to us. My sister in US gave me $100 via xoom so we decided to claim it in Cebuana Lhuillier, unfortunately, they didn’t allow my mom to claim it due to the IDs she has. According to them they only accept those being released by Government. Oh well, luckily, in our province, Daanbantayan, CL accepted my mom’s company IDs.. I guess there are just some branches that really strict enough in claiming this kind of transactions. that time my mom really said that CL is not good in terms in this kind of transaction..

    No experience yet with Cl specifically getting from them a money sent from abroad. With money transfers done locally, I am a fan of Smart Money. Fast, easy, and cheap 😉

    signatures and photos are basic requirements for an ID. It will be hard to identify a person with just the name. But then again, I think TIN IDs are included in the listed “government issued IDs”, as what can be seen posted inside most of these money transferring agencies.

    Well, let’s not be judgmental. They have to protect the interest of their customer. They’ve the reason to do that. In fact, it’s a lesson that everyone should take seriously to be extra careful. Though your cause is very urgent. Money matters.

    I don;t see anything wrong with the proceedure. It is done against fraud. You relative can have it instantly corrected and the moment that he/she does you can withdraw your money na. I did that correction thing many times.

    The security is too much..and it is being unconsiderate already! We are also customers with these valid ID’s. Everything was complete except for the wrong spelling of my surname and still they won’t release the money. This is so disgusting!

    I totally agree with this post. Just because of a misspelled name, we can’t get our highly needed money? We already have the control number in the first place, how can it be fraud? I hope Cebuana will change this rule. Customers are supposed to be served, not inconvenienced over such a trivial matter!

    Nag sangla ako ng kwintas sa cabanatuan branch burgos st. Cebuana lhuillier 2 years ago. Unfortunately, pagka tubos ko ng kwintas, binawasan nila ito, i have evidence kase tri color un, at ung binawasan nila e may naiwan kaya alam na pinutol. Mamahalin ang kwintas ko na un galing hongkong. Kunwari pa na pipirma ka sa plastic pero papipirmahin ka muna habang ndi naka sealed ung plastic at ung alahas sa loob. Lagi ako nag sasangla ng alahas sa kanila at dahil sa nangyare na un hindi na ako mauulit. Ngayon, pang bata na lang ang aking kwintas dahil naging short na ito at hindi na kasya sa leeg ko! Mag ingat sa pag sangla ng mga alahas kase nawawalan na ito ng value pag katubos nyo.

    Good Day! ask ko lang if lahat ba ng Cebuana Lhuillier iisa lang may ari? well ask ko lang kasi complain ko ung Cebuana Lhuillier sa Cogeo Branch 1 yung sa tabi ng Chowking. Ganto kasi yun.. Nagpadala ang Mpmmy ko from Hongkong Kahapon feb.14, 2013 ng Umaga mga before 11am, then now ko lang nakuha kasi nasa work ako pumunta akong cebuana nung free time ko kaninang 9am feb.15, 2013 then sabi nung girl na teller mali daw control number ko kasi ung # sa iba daw nkapangalan text or call ko daw mommy ko. Since may work si mommy di agad un makakasagot sa text or call ko kaya umuwi muna ako. Nang nasa house nako tumawag si mommy sabi tama naman daw ung Control# balikan ko daw ulit kaya bumalik ako ng 1PM then pag dating ko dun mali daw talaga ung # ko sa iba daw nakapangalan di daw nya makita kasi baka na payout na. Naguluhan nako kung bakit ganun pagod nako kababalik kaya naisip ko lipat ng ibang branch pumunta ako sa Cogeo Branch 2 napaka lapit lang sa kanila ng branch 2 pero sa laking gulat ko walang tanong tanong na payout agad ung padala sakin ni mommy (HOW COME AT SA BRANCH 2 DI NAKO NAHIRAPAN?!) kaya sa inis ko binalikan ko si branch 1 ask ko sila kung bakit sakanila diko ma payout sana pala sa branch 1 nalang ako nagpunta nung umpisa palang. (MARUNONG BA MAG COMPUTER SI TELLER NG BRANCH 1? bakit ganun nangyari?)sabi ko sa isip ko. Sagot ni miss teller na DELAY LANG PO YAN nung pumunta kayo sa Branch2 dumating na pero nung nandito kayo kanina wala pa ung pera. (PANO NANGYARI YUN EH HI-TECH NA NGAYON MINUTO LANG MATANGGAP NA aGAD YUNG PADALANG PERA NOH?! AND KAHAPON PA UN PINADALA NG MOM KO ANO KAYO DELAY SUPER DELAY?) Ang kinagulat ko sumabat si lalaking semi kalbo NA TELLER DIN sarkastic ang tono sabi nya “EDI MAGANDA NAKUHA MONA ANO PANG PINUPROBLEMA MO?” (Nagpanting ang tenga ko kaya bago pako maka sagot ng di maganda umuwi nAlAng ako at dadaanin ko nalang sa feedback kung gano ka BASTOS Ang mga teller ng CEBUANA LHUILLIER COGEO BRANCH 1

    I will never transact with Cebuana Lhuiller again. I can’t help but think that their policies are designed to intentionally make it difficult to claim our money. They refused to hand out the cash since the sender failed to include my second name. I had two valid ID’s and the transaction code. Hindi pa ba enough yun to establish na ako yung recipient? Siyempre they earn interest every day the money is stuck with them and they’ll even charge the sender when the name needs to be changed.

    We experienced different way. We were the one who sent money locally, its kinda business…we were about to buy products we gave money to this group personally and then according to them it was not enough so we send money 4x via cebuana lhuiller that’s what they asked for. Well tomake the story short the product and the group who supposed to deliver the product didnt show up and didnt hear from them, then we want to trace them…we believed that before they can get the money 2 gov’t ids must be presented first with pic and address. But we tried our best to get those info, the cebuana lhuiller didnt give way. And asked too many docs, like police report, blotter, etc…
