Maybe one of my affiliates checks is missing. It is send, but not received. I am still waiting for a reply from the merchant, but it worries me. I live in the Netherlands and sending checks is very rare in my country. (Most of us have a bank account).

Maybe it will be solved, but I would like to know how secure is sending checks. Is it "Not received? Bad luck." Or am I protected in some way?

What to do if a check is missing ?

Can someone else collect my check ?

Some merchants only send checks by mail, so I don't have any other options. Or do I?
