Plate Verification… important when police questions you
Something handy to keep in your phone . . . .
This is information about the REGISTRATION of any of your vehicles, whether it is filed genuinely at any LTO Office or not.
There are CHECKPOINTS nowadays and some unscrupulous policemen will tell you that your CAR REGISTRATION is not duly registered even if you show the OFFICIAL RECEIPT-LTO CAR REGISTRATION. The policeman will tell you that it is either tampered or fake and you have no choice but to deal with the extortion…
On your cellphone text this message:
XXX000 stands for your vehicle’s PLATE NUMBER ( Philippines )
i.e. LTO VEHICLE ABC123
SEND to 2600 and wait for auto-generated reply then save to your phone.
(An amount of P2.50 or P2.00 will be charged when you send to 2600)
A reply message from 2600 will inform you the following about the plate number:
Date of Last Registered:
LTO Apprehension: if any
LTO Alarm: if any
If there is a problem in CHECKPOINTS, just show this text message to the police officer in charge.
This text message from 2600 is also very important when buying an old and very cheap used car.
This will also be useful when you are following a car with a doubtful car plate no.
And lastly, when you register your car at any LTO Office try to check this out whether your car is genuinely registered or a tampered or fake OR was issued to you by an unscrupulous LTO employee or fixer.
PS. Save or print this for your reference… and email this to your friends.
