    Please check if the fax I sent you has arrived.

    So there is no word such as ¨faxed¨? You should instead say it as ¨I sent a fax message to you¨?

    Please check whether/if I have faxed you something is the correct syntax here.

    Please check -- yes, you can drop the object

    Mary Joe - I must take issue with you - when we use a fax machine, we fax a document through to the other party, so we have definitely faxed information to them. It is commonly used.

    In Asad's case, he could equally well say "I faxed the information to you. Please check that it has arrived."

    Please check whether I have faxed you something.

    I've faxed you a minute ago, could you check whether the fax has arrived.
