What if, god forbid, you lost your million dollar AdSense check? What can you expect the procedure to be? That is the topic of discussion in a DigitalPoint forum thread named lost my cheque!
Member, alph, responds from experience;
I've had a check get lost in the mail. You have to wait 30 days from issue date, then contact them and they will issue a new check to you. No extra fees were involved.
So there ya go.
