Best & Fast Change - Day Light Robbery !!!!!

This is a warning to anyone wanting tochange money in Venice. My daughter went to change UAE to EUR and she was charged more than 100 EUR in fees.

This is day-light robbery and these people need to be stopped

When she asked for her original currency back they refused to give it back to her

I am guessing it was an agency and not a bank?

However in most places they do a calculation and show it first before the transaction. Many people on here say the best way is to take money from cashpoints rather than exchanging cash. .... I am sorry for your daughter as €100 is a very large sum......

Interesting how this is the second "Best and Fast Change" posting in a day. I've never previously heard of them.
