Where To Not Exchange
Exchange Services at Hotels
If you’d let them, hotels will charge you to breathe. Exchanging your money at a hotel ensures that you get less money than you would get at a GWK Bank.
Helpful People on the Street
Idiotic as it may sound, some tourists really need to be told this: Exchange your currency at a legitimate bank. Not at a bar, in a coffeeshop, or on the street.
Fake Police Officers
In recent years there have been many instances in which tourists were approach by people who — to them — looked and acted like police officers. The ‘officers’ — often from East-European countries, and dressed in uniforms obtained via the Internet — claim that they want to alert the tourists about the existence of fake Euros. They offer (or demand) to check their wallets, and then apply an exchange trick — after which the tourists are left with no money, or a bunch of fake Euros. Real cops will not ask to see your money. http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert.cgi
