Re: US dollars

You can't be serious.

You are.

So how do you ensure that you are not passing off fake notes to others?

Is this a business transaction that occurs normally in your business?

Are you a registered money exchanger?

Are you insured?

Registered as a business?

Are you legaly entitled to conduct business here?

Honestly I dont know how many of these questions apply to you. But you may want to look into it if you want to exchange money with people you dont know.

Good luck

you totally ignored my first question, but ok.
I dont do any business, or I have fake notes or I want to cheat anyone.
I need some us dollars for the trip to usa.

The "cheapest" way is to buy from someone who wants CHF and agree on the XE mid-rate (or similar).

Whether that is the BEST way will depend on how much you are looking to exchange and why. If you aren't changing a lot of money the material cost between a good and a bad rate is minimal - and simply taking cash out in the US may be most convienient - although check fees and any region/country restrictions on your card before you travel.

Finally - all this has been posted on EF before but based on your previous threads you are clearly a bit simple and so can be excused.
