CBS warns of sites that publish fake exchange rates

Damascus, SANA- The Central Bank of Syria (CBS) warned on Tuesday that some websites and pages, specifically Syria Stocks, are publishing fake low currency exchange rates.

The CBS warned that this aims at buying foreign currency from citizens at low prices and then selling them at high prices to make profits at the expense of citizen and the national economy.

Governor of the CBS Adib Mayyaleh had affirmed on Sunday that the bank does not publish any news or information about the mechanisms and conditions of intervention in foreign currency market or exchange rates, considering such news as part of the economic war against Syria that seeks to damage national economy.
