"Currency Exchange - Scam!" Latvia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by robfwoods

Latvia Warnings and Dangers: 18 reviews and 10 photos

Be careful with changing currency! There are a number of kioskd which prominently display what looks to be a good rate - but it is the SELL rate. When you get your money back you will find you may have lost 15%! There's one place with a BIG 69,95 over the cashier's window - you will get 60,40!

And even they will put the SELL in Latvian - but they keep somewheres within some meters the obligatory long list with both buy and sell - but this is an A4 paper - and you'll hardly notice.

It's a bit surprising the authorities haven't come down on this practice.
