Oct. 12, 2010 - PRLog -- Over 13,000 holiday makers were struck with sheer panic as the foreign exchange company Crown Currency went into administration on the 4th of October 2010. To add to their fury customers have also been told that it could take six months before any kind of refund can be distributed (if any). The currency exchange firm also stressed that they were not covered by Financial Services Authority (FSA) which meant that customers were not able to approach the service for compensation.
The business that started five years ago, allowed individuals and business customers to pre-order foreign exchange at a set price up to a year in advance, with amounts between £300 and £10,000 available.
Crown Currency has demolished its own reputation and ineffectively tarnished the trust for many whom use online foreign exchange services. Experts have said it is safer to deal with someone face to face and ensure that money transfers of larger amounts are produced via authorised institutions.

Despite the negative press, many forex organisations are still fighting strong and reassuring the public that their services are safe and legitimate.
Online FX foreign exchange services, issued the following facts to reassure holiday makers and travellers, that exchanging currency online remains a safe and secure option.

•   Is registered with the Banking regulations for international money transfers
