Chase Bank - Currency Conversion
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO -- My wife has a Chase Bank account. When we found out Chase would convert some Euros we had to dollars with no commission since she was a customer, we decided to use them to convert the currency. BIG MISTAKE! While they charge no commission, they cheat you on the exchange rate, BIG TIME! The going rate for Euros on the day of our transaction was $1.34 for each Euro. Chase only gave us $1.25 for each Euro - basically charging 7% for them to convert our funds. This is such an outrageous charge, the bank ought to be prosecuted for theft. I will NEVER trust this bank again and we will close our account ASAP. DON'T TRUST THEM AND DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THEM.
