Honest OFW feted in Dubai
MANILA, Philippines—An overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in the United Arab Emirates has been honored after she returned a Dh4,300 or around P50,000 found uncollected from an automated teller machine (ATM), a report from Gulf News said.
The reports said the OFW, who was identified only as “Jean,” was recognized by the Dubai Police for her honesty.
The report said Jean found the money on the ATM’s cash slot on New Year’s Eve as she was about to withdraw from an ATM outlet in Deira City Center.
It said Jean took the money and handed it over to the police.
The report said that on Jan. 15, police received a report from an Arab man who claimed that he lost the same amount of money as the bank credited him but he never received it.
According to the report, the OFW failed to attend the press conference by the Dubai police to honor her.
The police, however, said they would visit the OFW at her workplace in a tourism agency to personally award her. NC
