Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, December 26) — The Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) is set to investigate a netizen's report of withdrawing P400 worth of "faceless" bills.

The BPI told CNN Philippines it was trying to reach out to Earla Anne Yehey, who posted on Facebook a picture of the P100 bills without President Manuel Roxas' face. The bank added it is verifying the post.

The netizen tagged the BPI and Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) in her post.

She told CNN Philippines on Tuesday she withdrew four P100 bills at around 2:30 a.m. on Christmas Day at an ATM in Eastwood, Quezon City.

She also said the BSP advised her to approach the BPI branch where the withdrawal was made.

As of publishing time, the post has drawn over 24,000 reactions and 19,000 shares. While some commenters were alarmed, others were skeptical of the post.

Yehey's account is the only reported incidence of faceless money so far.
