    I just realised I put one through the wash.

    How many hoops would the Big G make me jump through to get it reissued?

    And would all that hoop jumping be worth it for the $160 or so that the check was for?

    And why didn't I just let my wife do the washing like I always do? I managed to wash 4 cheques totalling over $500.

    :)) funny.... but I wouldn't worry about that, from what I know if you don't cash them in, the money will get back into your account...you will have to wait a few months for that though..

    Once, i recevied 2 checks, same amounts. Cashed in both of them, Week later, the funds on one check came back. I didn't say a word about it, they didn't say a word about it either. Odd huh ?

    I am sure you are not the first, nor the last one this happens to. Just get in touch with them, they should issue new one. I am not sure about adsense but with some companies the funds become unavailable when cheque becomes void after X amount of time, so you might want to check on that. It is better idea to ask them directly rather than hope they will notice you did not cash the cheque and send you new one out of curtesy. But again They might be nice due to all the "Be No Evil" approach. (sarcastic) Anyways just let them know and you'll be fine.

    Let me know how you get on, my mother has managed to misplace a check from 2 months back. She is looking after my banking in the UK while im travelling. TBH i didnt want to stress her out over it cos its only a couple of k, but if its simple enough to get them reissued then i might chase them down for it.

    the others will be easy - the $280 one is a rent cheque - so no drama's there, and the other 2 were just $10-$20 refunds from companies closing my accounts after I sold my drivein, so their accounts depts will chase me up so they can close the accounts.

    I was just hoping someone had been through the sure to be rigmarole of getting a google cheque reissued, (they come to Asutralia from Dublin I think), because if I've got to call people multiple times in the middle of the night internationally and be left on hold for ages then I might just forget about it and never go near the washing machine again.

    I did not receive my check once (lost in the mail) After a 60 day wait the amount was added to my account balance and paid at the end of that month.

    I'm pretty sure its in their FAQ's about what to do if you lose or don't get your payment. I just took a look and you can request a check reissue. Its under payment troubleshooting on this page:
    Code:
    [URL="https://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=164602&topic=1316800&parent=1250105&rd=1"]https://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=164602&topic=1316800&parent=1250105&rd=1 [/URL]
    Edit: Just wanted to add that I think I contacted support directly. Don't know if they had the option in the link above when this happened to me. But it was quick and painless for me except the 60 day wait cause I was broke as hell at the time.
