How it works:
- At Osh Bazaar, there are money changers which advertise favourable exchange rates.
- What happens is that a large stack of notes is passed to you and via sleight of hand, some notes may be taken out without you realizing it.
Places to beware:
- Bishkek: Osh Bazaar
What to do:
- Change at banks or exchange offices in the city center instead.
