Money exchanges

Travellers!!!!!....

Please, please be careful when exchanging your precious $$$ at a non bank/financial institution/reputable teller.

ie..random shops, tailor shops, souvenier shops..etc THEY rip you off. sneaky with counting and handing over the cash, they will count out the exchange but do some magic swift 'david copperfield' illusion and make you think you have the full amount. make sur you count it yourself before you walk away. if they get caught, they say its their commission when they dont charge commission a they calculate the exchange and count the exchange infront of you until you think your ready to walk away, pick up the money trusting they gave you the full amount.

CHECK IT YOURSELF!!!

be money savvy...
