'KING OF CARIBBEAN COMEDY' OLIVER SAMUELS PROMOTING MONEY TRANSFERS TO JAMAICA

Jamaica’s most famous and beloved actor Oliver Samuels, described as the King of Caribbean comedy, will be the new media voice for the partnership between Capital & Credit Reggae Money Express in Jamaica and the online money transfer company Xoom.com. The new advertising campaign rolled out in the tri-state area in recently..

Oliver Samuels hardly needs an introduction to Jamaican audiences in the Diaspora. He was a pioneer and foundation member of post-independence Jamaican theatre, and he has appeared in at least fifty hit theatrical productions to date, including thirteen LTM pantomimes, appearing alongside late icons like the Hon. Louise Bennett Coverley and Ranny Williams. Oliver is arguably Jamaica’s most compelling ‘roots’ voice with a colorful mastery for the Jamaican dialect, and as the spokesperson for Capital & Credit Reggae Money Express, he will appear in the joint television, radio and newspaper advertising campaigns for the collaborative service between the two brands for sending money to Jamaica. The joint campaign between Xoom.com and Capital & Credit Reggae Money Express forms part of both companies’ efforts to expand their money transfer service to Jamaica. The campaigns will run simultaneously in Jamaica and in the New York tri-state region, and will create awareness for conveniently sending money online to Jamaica, as well as easily receiving money in Jamaica..

"We are pleased to be working with Capital & Credit and to have Oliver on board in our new, joint advertising campaigns. He is extremely popular and his name is synonymous with Jamaica and laughter," said Julian King, SVP of Business Development and Marketing at Xoom.com and fellow member of the Diaspora community..

Xoom.com recently brokered the new partnership with Capital & Credit Remittance Limited, one of Jamaica’s most respected remittance institutions, to expand their Cash Pickup service at over 70 Reggae Money Express locations island-wide and Bank Deposit service to send money directly to a bank account in Jamaica. This dynamic partnership now provides beneficiaries in Jamaica with four times more locations for receiving money, including at C.O.K. and Lasco..

“We at Capital & Credit are proud to partner with Xoom.com and to help grow their money transfer service to Jamaica,” added Sheron Dixon-Brown, General Manager of Capital & Credit Remittance Limited. “Xoom.com offers Jamaicans living abroad with the convenience of sending remittances from the comfort of their home computer directly to a Capital & Credit Reggae Money Express agent location in just minutes.”.

“Many of us at Xoom.com personally understand the importance of sending money to our families living back home. That is why we are proud to make our service more convenient for our loved ones in Jamaica by offering more locations island-wide,” added Julian King.

Sister Mary Margaret

SISTER MARGARET MARY, WHO WORKS FOR A LOCAL HOME HEALTH AGENCY WAS OUT MAKING HER ROUNDS WHEN SHE RAN OUT OF GAS.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT A GAS STATION WAS JUST A BLOCK AWAY.

SHE WALKED TO THE STATION TO BORROW A CAN OF GAS TO START & THEN DRIVE TO THE STATION FOR A FILL UP.

THE ATTENDANT REGRETFULLY TOLD HER THE ONLY GAS CAN HE OWNED HAD BEEN LOANED OUT BUT IF SHE WOULD WAIT, IT WAS SURE TO BE BACK SHORTLY.

SINCE THE NUN ! WAS ON THE WAY TO SEE A PATIENT SHE DECIDED NOT TO WAIT & SHE WALKED BACK TO THE CAR. AFTER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL WITH GAS, SHE SPOTTED A BEDPAN SHE WAS TAKING TO THE PATIENT.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL, SHE CARRIED IT TO THE STATION & FILLED IT WITH GASOLINE, & CARRIED IT TO HER CAR.

AS SHE WAS POURING THE GAS INTO THE TANK, TWO MEN WERE WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE STREET. ONE OF THEM TURNED TO THE OTHER & SAID, "IF IT STARTS, I'M TURNING CATHOLIC".
