I also liked the very lopsided exchange rate (Pounds/Dollars --> Lei) at the time that made you an instant millionaire, and you could easily go out with $100 for the entire weekend and have a blast.

Thumbs down

And they have a computer hacker there who is ripping off unsuspecting Americans by using a scam where the IRS is offering a refund and all one has to do is click on a link and fill out a form. Then sit back and ways for your $$$$.

The only problem is - IT AIN'T THE IRS!
It's a guy named DULGHERU SILVIO who used my debit card to order $2k worth of computer equipment from Novicio Tech Division, both of Bucharest.
And the Romanian government tell me to hire a Romanian lawyer.
Some kind of country.

Sorry you got scamed. Every country has few bad apples, but that's no reason to judge the whole country after those few.

Buna Elenista. E groaznic si aici. Ninge in continuu de azi-noapte, bate un viscol crunt si tre sa ai mare grija pe unde calci. Categoric nu e vreme de iesit pe-afara.
