Some lucky GHS members are getting an early holiday gift from their lender.
GHS Federal Credit Union randomly chose 5 members with auto loans to win free payments.
Three were awarded one month of free payments, while 2 members, including Sahil Nyati won 6 months of payments that will be paid off by GHS.
In addition to presenting the winnings, all members were eligible for giveaways including ice scrapers, planners and a tote bag.
Nyati says that when he was first notified, he thought it was a scam.
“To be honest, I initially thought it was a spam call. Someone just called me up and I almost hung up on them. They told me to listen to them, but I was still not sure. I e-mailed one of the bank managers and he congratulated me and told me that I won it,” he said.
Other winners include Joe and Denice Sirgany.
GHS was established in 1940 and has 3 locations: Upper Front Street, downtown Binghamton and Norwich.
