Ghana Money Changer Ran With Money - Tips

Ghana Money Changer Ran with Money Robbed of money in Ghana I was told by Taia that a couple of Peace Corps Volunteers cross the border from Togo to Ghana were robbed by a money changer. The way I heard the story is they gave the man 60,000 CFA or about 120 US dollars. Then somehow he just took off running and stole their money. Best to always keep the money in your possession until you count the money, and are positive it is correct, when you have the money in your hand, then give up the money you owe. Do not trust money changers. This was a street transaction and not an exchange booth. I normally only change about 20 US, just enough to get to the next ATM or Bank machine. Crossing the border from Togo to Ghana would be about 80 Kilometers from Accra. Always a risk to do any business at a border. 95 percent of the time I find an ATM machine.
