George Scott

Many congratulations, George, from everyone here at Team Azimo!

We’ve now had a chance to catch up with George and find out a little more about him, why he likes using Azimo and what he plans to do with his £500 windfall…

Where do you send money to?
I mainly use Azimo to send money to my relatives in the Philippines, and also to friends I’ve met while on holiday there.

What are the most important things when you’re transferring money?
Speed, cost, safety and ease of use. When I use Azimo, I know that my money’s always secure, the fees are really low, the rates are great and the transfer’s delivered to the Philippines in as little as an hour. And I can do the whole thing from the comfort of my living room!

Why did you first choose to use Azimo?
I travel quite a lot and I first started using Azimo because it allows me to transfer to so many different places around the world – there are more than 5,000 cash pick-up locations in the Philippines alone! It’s the ideal way to pay deposits safely and easily when I book accommodation abroad.

What do you like best about our service?
Lots of things, really. I like the homepage, it’s clean and simple to understand. The customer support is also really good – whenever I’ve contacted them they’ve been so helpful. Finally, I find Azimo by far the cheapest way to send money to the Philippines.

What tempted you to enter the £500 prize draw?
It just seemed like too good an opportunity to miss. Entry was automatic when I made a transfer, so there was absolutely nothing to lose – and an awful lot to gain!

How did you feel when you found out you’d won?
It felt fantastic to win such a big prize and even now I still can’t stop smiling about it. Thanks again!

What are you going to do with your winnings?
I’m booked to go on holiday for a week to Marrakech in Morocco soon, so I’ll be able to really enjoy my time there with all this extra spending money. It couldn’t have come at a better moment for me!

As well as the £500 top prize, we also gave away 10 Azimo goody bags loaded with treats. And here are the lucky winners: Leslie Batchelor, Maciej Stasis, Arthur Spear, Mohammed Alam Ullah, Peter Miles, Jocelyn Imbo, David Preis, Eshmam Hussain, Jared Omollo and Manuel Schernthaner. Congratulations to all of you!
