How it works:
- This may not technically be a scam, but the intention to mislead is clear. If you see exchange rates which are too good to be true, they probably are.
- The main trick used here is to show only one rate – the buy rate in local currency. If you try to sell other currencies, it is a wildly different rate.
Places to beware:
- Tbilisi: Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi
What to do:
- Always clarify and confirm the rate before confirming the transaction.
