Best FX site

Hello,
I am about to transfer and convert some money from the UK to USA.
Did a bit of research, and it appeared that XE were the best.
When I went to place a 'trade' I found out about 'mid-rates'....

Re: 6 Strikes

I originally said that I got the strike for downloading -which I assumed I had.
On closer inspection the 'Alert' refers to file sharing. So I guess they could be tracking either or both -maybe they...

Re: 6 Strikes

The warning was for "Copyright Infringement" -no more details.
It would be interesting to know which downloads specifically triggered this alarm.

6 Strikes

Well I just got my first warning from the A&TT. I see all sorts of advice about proxy servers and vpns which I don't really want to go through.
I was wondering what the alternatives are?

Re: Same Realtor for both sides.

Just two points to make. First of all, how can a 'buyer's agent' really be acting in your interest? Sure they can provide some due diligence and useful info, but in truth all that info is freely...

Bilderburg Meeting in Watford Soon

What do you make of that? Any opinions or is this something about nothing?
It's going to cost the UK taxpayer millions in security. Why doesn't the mainstream media cover this?

Re: Who isn't going to vote?

The past several weeks have made one thing crystal-clear: Our country faces unmitigated disaster if the Other Side wins.

No reasonably intelligent person can deny this. All you have to do is look...

Re: Who isn't going to vote?

Well Romney's said he will get rid of the hobo Bernanke. If he promises to clear out the rest of the architects of our financial demise I might have to register.
No real danger of that happening is...

I haven't finished the book so I'll give a bad synopsis.

Has anyone else read "Bought and Paid for" by Gasparino?
It's an interesting take on why Wall St chose Obama over Clinton and McCain back in 2008.

Re: record number of americans renounce their citizenship to avoid paying taxes

Thank you for the link -that's some useful info.
It doesn't look like it needs to be an expensive process,
but I'd be interested to hear from anyone who knows anything about the costs in practice....

Re: record number of americans renounce their citizenship to avoid paying taxes

Does anyone know about the process of renouncing an American passport?
Is it an extensive process and more importantly, is it particularly expensive?

Re: Denied entry to the USA - why??

The comeback to the person with over 9000 posts would be too easy so I will restrain myself.

There seems to be an assumption in this thread that the OP will get a green card. While I wish him luck in this endeavor, it is certainly not a certainty.

Re: Denied entry to the USA - why??

In response to the earlier posts -once you're flagged -you're flagged.
It doesn't matter whether you've got a visa since you got flagged, or you've got a green card. It still appears on the system,...

Re: Denied entry to the USA - why??

This is one person's experience and backed up by two conversations with different immigrations officers.
If anyone has experience or evidence that this is not the case then I'd like to hear it.

Ok Ian, I think you make valid points and I agree with you in theory but not in practice.
First of all, rights are only enforcible in the US if you have the finances to employ a good lawyer....
