MoneyGram yesterday rewarded their loyal customers with fabulous prizes as part of their Christmas promotion, which came to an end a week ago.
The final raffle draw was conducted by Managing Director of Premier Media Consultancy, Dr. Julius Spencer, who revealed that during the course of the promotion some 274 lucky customers won plasma television sets, refrigerators, home theaters, mobile phones, blenders, electric irons and recharge units.
Dr. Spencer explained that customers who utilise MoneyGram services at the Sierra Leone Commercial Bank, United Bank for Africa, Rokel Commercial Bank, Keystone Bank, Afro International, FBN Bank and Guaranty Trust Bank to send or receive money from family members and loved ones qualified to enter the draw.
He added that the promotion was part of MoneyGram’s strategy to give back to customers who patronise with them by using the service throughout 2015, and encouraged those who are not part of the family to join as it is fast, reliable and well secured.
Ishmael Sillah, a representative from the United Bank for Africa (UBA), spoke about the effectiveness of sending and receiving money through the MoneyGram service.
“Let me congratulate those that were lucky to win during our Christmas promotion. I must say that it is the fastest and most reliable way to send and receive money worldwide. It is better to be with MoneyGram,” he said and urged those who are not part of it to join.
One of the winners, Samuel Akim Sesay, said: “I feel so good to be called upon when I least expected it. I am happy not only for this television but also count myself very lucky to win it among thousands of people who send and receive money during the festive period. I must confess that the service is so fast.”
