Dubai, August 27, 2019: In a recent customer promotion conducted by ADCB and Xpress Money, an OFW residing in Abu Dhabi, Emiliano Belen, was announced as the grand prize winner of AED 50,000. Emiliano has been an OFW for a decade now and moved to the UAE over a year ago. He won the cash prize in a draw held for customers who sent money from their ADCB online banking portal through Xpress Money. Emiliano plans to use this cash prize to fund his own business as well as help those in need back home.
Speaking about winning the grand prize, Emiliano said, “At first, I just couldn’t believe that I had won AED 50,000! Only after verifying, was I convinced that I am the grand prize winner. This money is a huge blessing for me as I can use it to fund my own business as well as help the ones in need back home”.
He further added, “I have been using the Xpress Money service through my ADCB online banking portal to send money to my family ever since I moved to the UAE over a year ago. The service is extremely convenient and safe; I would recommend it to anyone wanting to send money from the UAE to the Philippines”.
In 2016, UAE’s renowned bank ADCB collaborated with Xpress Money, a Finablr company to offer international money transfer services to the bank’s customers from the UAE. As part of their customer contact programs, ADCB and Xpress Money hosted a promotion during the month of Ramadan through the bank’s online banking and mobile app. By virtue of this promotion, 31 lucky winners won AED 1,000 each and the grand prize winner took home AED 50,000.
