Armed with gloves and sanitiser, Vanessa Borg from the Bank of Valletta’s PR & Marketing embarked on a search for the 100,000th person who had downloaded the BOV mobile app. After a couple of adventures and maps gone wrong, she finally located David Micallef and surprised him with a brand new Samsung Galaxy A71 mobile phone.
“It was a quite challenging feat due to the COVID-19 scenario, what we usually do in a couple of hours, took us much longer. We left his gift on the doorstep and communicated with him at a safe social distance from across the street,” stated Borg, “Having said this, it was great to see Mr Micallef’s look of surprise and hopefully we brought with us a little cheer.”
The BOV mobile app gives customers the ability to check account balances, transfer funds, pay bills, effect convenient mobile to mobile payments and top up mobile phones. It also provides a digital securekey for the bank’s internet banking and a link to BOVPay or ApplePay. The app will be enhancing its features in the coming weeks.
Borg thanked all customers who choose BOV Mobile to execute their banking needs swiftly and securely and urged them to stay safe at home and use internet and mobile banking to affect their banking and financial requirements.
And who knows, next time it could be you!
