Currency Exchange Rates
Purpose: Various Berklix pages quote
prices & rates of other peoples products & services in
various currencies, so rather than pages quoting old rates,
they link here & you can look up current rates.
Some banks etc in UK inc. `
big four' in high street.

I & others in UK & Germany have seen enough rip
offs, bank self satisfaction, avarice, computer incompetence,
& top bankers bloated salaries, For eloquence in Anglo
Saxon, join us over a beer ;-).
If a banker looks worried when asked about computer
security, or admits ignorance & directs you to more info,
don't be deterred, that may be honesty showing through. If
he/she can & will talk tech, that may deserve respect
& some trust; If he/she just exudes normal posh bland
confidence & platitudes from a suit, assume they are more
ignorant than you !

However after going round other banks, & returning
thinking best, was near worst bank rate ! Cos they deceive by
only quoting Two Digits, His female colleague on after lunch
break did the same thing, quoted 2 digits from some box on
computer screen I couldn't see, & blamed me for not
noting the exact Euro amount I would get for X thou Sterling.

trade after hearing rate). "Customer always wrong" attitude
