   flagman ► TIP £$£$:      If you want to bring your money from the UK to Florida. Or vice versa.
Here’s the best way:   TO SAVE WHEN TRANSFERRING OVER UK CURRENCY.  DON’T USE YOUR BANK!  Use Moneycorp.
  The pound is pitiful!  That affects all expats in Florida who still have UK dealings.  But Moneycorp’s rates are currently [2017] the best.  To transfer your precious funds, we highly recommend the services of Moneycorp.  This will save you fees and grief, as we Londoners say!  What your own bank won’t do is save you the considerable exchange fees.  Moneycorp does that for you.   NOW is the most advantageous time for you to transfer any funds you have.  THE BEST WAY:  Moneycorp.   At lower rates than any bank.   Moneycorp is the only UK currency exchange company licensed to deal in 50 states.   Expat Brits here –including many personal Brit friends of mine–have used this currency service for years and report savings and satisfaction.   TO FIND OUT MORE:    Phone Moneycorp’s Kelly Cutchin on  [863] 207-6616 at their USA HQ in Orlando to ask all your questions.  Or email your query to Kelly Cutchin  kelly.cutchin@moneycorp.com for details.  Moneycorp has a UK office too so Kelly may set up your account in the UK—whichever suits you.   Sent by the Florida Association of British Business [FABB]  Moneycorp have been trusted members since 2005.     [2017]
