New Feature! Tip of the Day: Don't Use Illegal Moneychangers

In this new "Tip of the Day" feature for readers of STAYING SAFE ABROAD, please don't use "illegal moneychangers" as many may be undercover cops hoping to dupe foreigners and residents alike and arrest them for currency violations.

Additionally, non-governmental moneychangers may also provider foreigners, in particular, local currency that is no longer in circulation, thereby duping them out of genuine euros, dollars and other hard currency.

Violating any law of a sovereign nation across the globe is never a good idea as it may result in your being deported (never a good thing!), fined or even imprisoned.
