_Bank Story 1/25/12 Today at 6:42 pm
I opened up a checking account at a Wells Fargo today... I worked with a banker, not a teller, he was actually a manager there.
I opened an account and before I left he asked if I had any questions. I said yes. I said: A friend of mine gave me some iraqi money, i think its called dinar for Christmas and I was wondering about the value of it. (I've been in this investment for a year and a half and I played stupid with him)
He said, "oh, well how much you got?" I replied "roughly 400,000" his face lit up, he seemed amazed. I wasn't going to tell him how much I really had but I was just fishing for some answers.
He said, that they do exchange and I would have to bring it in and they could verify it. He didn't give me a rate. Obviously I know it hasn't revalued yet and I'm positive I would not have received more than the 1166 rate. I also told him that I heard it might appreciate in value soon.

_ He replied "Yes and No" I didn't understand the no part. My next question was, "I tried looking up the rate online and I heard about 0.0000 on bank screens" he said ""That is true, that rates do fluctuate back and forth"
I said back and forth to the rate of what I see online of 1166 he said"yes back and forth." So the story about bank screens changing seems to be true. At this point he started to realize that I'm not stupid.
He then ended our conversation and said "Welcome to Wells Fargo and HOLD ON TO THE MONEY. I WOULD KEEP IT IN YOUR POSSESSION." Then I left.
Now him talking about exchanging.... how can you exchange currency thats not tradable.... Some people said that Wells Fargo won't deal with the dinar.... He was offering to trade at the rate of 1166. I'm glad I had my own bank story, a lot of people have had some and its just great to have one for myself.
I'm not sure about the yes and no, I should have asked to see his screen for a rate, but this was a last minute thing, i didn't plan on mentioning the dinar....
He did mention the basket of currencies. He didn't say the word basket but when i asked about the 0.0000 on the screens he said a lot of them have been fluctuated. So that is my confirmation on what the MODS are saying about the basket currencies.
