Hi
Not been on the forum for a while, just read about the exchange place and yes they did the same to one of our friends last august, when he walked out he realised they had short changed him, he went back in and they gave him the rest, will warn all our gang to be careful, good idea about cashing in £100 at a time

The best place to change your money up is the PTT, you'll get the official rate,another genuine place is Oz Gold down the village.Another tip,if you're going into a restaurant with the prices in sterling enquire as to the xchange rate,as a lot of them will give the lowest rate they can.Or better still avoid the ones that are,because technically all prices should be in Lira.

My friends have just been ripped off by the same change office. We were wondering if there was anyone we could complain to about this happening.

Yes there is... but  dont bother [:(!]  we went into the respective offices at the Beledere in Hisaronu way back in May 2007, and after telling the staff there, and them writing down in detail our complaint about that very exchange office, and their`sleight of hand` con with the Lira on two occasions, and how I  `blew` up at the two guys: :) who tried it on there ( see earlier posting of mine June 2007 )
The Beledere has done absolutely  nothing about it . They are still there and still `trying it on`

A turkish local told us last May 2007 that the guys who run the exchange rate office at the front of St Nichs shop/ restaurant complex were, in 2006,  operating the same con tricks in Marmaris.   and have now moved on to Hisaronu. Where obviously they are still `raking it in` and gambling that you wont notice  that you have been short changed.
Anyway it seems the Beledere   couldnt care less about it [:(!]
They must be making a  b****y fortune out of it  !!!  [:(!]

What may be helpful is (if possible) someone can explain the 'sleight of hand' used - i.e. how the con works - so people can look out for it.
