How it works:
- Opening: scam currency exchange booths generally advertise super low rates and claim that there is no commission fee.
- Set-up: owever, the deal is only applicable if you change a huge sum of money, and they only reveal this after the deal is done, when you realize a shortfall of what you should get back.
Places to beware:
- Gdansk: Old Town
- Krakow: Main Market Square, Ulica Florianska, St. Florian’s Gate (Brama Florianska)
- Warsaw: Nowy Swiat
- Wroclaw: Rynek
What to do:
- Look at the correct column (buy or sell), check the small print and confirm the rate and commission and get them to write it down.
