9:38 AM [Cessie] From OOM: [duckyboy] This is one of the most difficult times for us and this RV. The information we're getting from good friends (some life-long friends) is just questionable. I can't tell you all where this is coming from but the source is trusted. Last night i was told that a US civilian was in a large city in Iraq and went to purchase an item. This buyer only had USD. The exchange rate given to him was $6 to one IQD. Now, was the store owner taking advantage of the buyer, being a foreigner? Sure, why not. I have seen this happen before when I lived in Europe, but nothing so much as this transaction. Normally, I would have just kept this information in my back pocket and pulled it out when needed. However, on OOM, I have read similar reports from US servicemen in Iraq. Are these accounts of the exchange rates valid? Good question and I'll let you know when I know!!
