“don't trust them”

Written on: 18/04/2014 by alighafari (1 review written)

If you are going to transfer large amounts of money don't trust Taheri Exchange. They claim that they are able to transfer the money in 48 hours however they would keep your money. I had to call them everyday and beg them to transfer my own money!!. Ask them to guarantee (in writing)that they would transfer the money. don't trust these guys. به هیچ عنوان برای مقادیر بالا قابل اطمینان نیستند… Read Full Review

“Never do business with them”

Written on: 11/05/2013

Their exchange business revolves around lying and setting traps for you. Never, and I repeat, NEVER give them check or draft and always try to get cash from them because once they tell you they will deposit the money into your account "once the draft clears", they will make sure they wait the longest they can before giving you your money. Unless you call them 3 times a day, they will not care about your business. They will lie to you, hang up on you, not answer your calls, yell at you over the… Read Full Review

“They took our money and did not complete the...”

Written on: 04/04/2013

They took our money and did not complete the transaction for over 22 days. The reason was that we gave him the money when the rate was high, but before they transfer it, the rate went down and so he did not want to complete the transaction with the high price that we had bought the currency from us. Do yourself and your money a big favor and stay away from this company… Read Full Review

“Don't trust them at all”

Written on: 10/03/2013 by Teaser2013 (1 review written)

I really needed to transfer my money urgently. I called Taheri exchange and they promised me to do it in 3 days but believe or not it took 14 days. I can tell you if I didn't call them 3 times everyday I wouldn't get my money after 3 months!!!!!! His rate is a little bit better than other places but this is only a trap for you. When you fall into it, you will be in a big headache for months. He just simply use your money for his benefit by doing all kind of businesses and if you call and ask… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/01/2013 by safasocool (2 reviews written)

I use this company quite a lot when I want to exchange currency. It is pretty accurate. I have never made any transfer, so cannot comment on that. But I do think they do everything in a professional way and the service in general is good and easy to use. I like that they can convert your selected currency to any other selected currency. It is a pretty big company… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/12/2012 by Samerallafi (1 review written)

This company is the real definition of unreliability, fraud, dishonesty, unethically and all kinds of cheating. They locked my first two payments transaction total of( $151,500) of my money in their Forex account for mor than 2 months, the third payment was locked ($46,543) for almost 6 months. Basically, this company takes your money and invests it in the somewhere in the stock market until the rates fluctuate in their own favor and only then, after locking the profit, they transfer your… Read Full Review

“$7,000 of my money has been in this company`s account...”

Written on: 22/11/2012

$7,000 of my money has been in this company`s account for the past 32 days and they refuse to give it back to me. They take your money, fix a transfer rate, promise 2-3 day transactions but wait until rates are favorable for themselves. Hence, you are likely to not see your money for a good couple of months. If you plan on sending money oversees, go to any exchange company but Taheri Exchange. Taheri will gamble with your money. Unprofessional, unethical and extremely rude owner and employees… Read Full Review

Samhar's Comment

Written on: 22/11/2012

I had the exact same experience. What`s more frustrating is that I asked to speak with the owner himself (who is always hiding in the back room) and he promised to me a smooth transaction within 48 hours. After a week of waiting, I called for three consecutive days and the owner kept hiding himself from me. When I finally got a chance to speak with him, he was not only rude but he also said said not to call anymore and just wait. This company, its owner and all the staff, who all tend to be family members, should be flagged.

“Crooks! ”

Written on: 14/10/2012

This company is a scam. You receive a slightly better rate for sending money abroad, relative to other institutions in the business but that's only to get the cash from you. Once they take your money, it's likely that you will not see your money for at least a couple of months. Don't bother calling them as one of their many rude employees will respond by telling you that you could have gone with a different company as Taheri Exchange does not promise a transfer by a certain date. And don't even… Read Full Review

“very bad experience”

Written on: 26/03/2012

We were out of Canada and our son brought them 11 K for exchange to make urgent payments. And they kept this money for 10 days because of a little bureaucratic trick. And even when we came back to Toronto and tried to get money back, they made us visit their office several times before we succeeded to rescue our money. So I would never deal with Taheri Exchange in the future and would not recommend this company to someone else… Read Full Review

That's a trick they use to get the cash from you and then they use your cash to buy and sell gold, lend out the money for loan shark rates and buy post-dated cheques at a discount from those in need of cash.

This company should be thoroughly investigated.

“Long lines worth the wait!”

Written on: 26/12/2011 by JeniferAsworthy (1 review written)

It is worth the long line up and I am grateful for the service I receive and the amount of money I save. The Taheri Exchange staff are polite and professional. The tellers are happily carrying on conversations with the clients and you can tell they know them. I wish they would talk a little faster though. The office has a very comforting feel to it. It is located on the first floor of an office tower with a heavy security presence. That certainly does not hurt, but the office is in a safer… Read Full Review

Samhar's Response to JeniferAsworthy's Review

Written on: 22/11/2012

Long lines!! The only people you see at their office are those fighting Taheri to get their money back.

This user is either the owner himself or someone related to him. begging for business. Don`t trust a single word in the above review. The teller herself told me that their company is on the verge of bankruptcy and to not trust them with large amounts as filing bankruptcy simply means goodbye to your money.

“I read all the reviews before submitting mine....”

Written on: 07/09/2010

I read all the reviews before submitting mine. Remember that sending US wire transfers, exchanging Canadian to Us or Canadian to Euro or vice-versa are considered minor activities for a company of this nature and should not be used as a basis for rating them.

I assure you that 90% of this company's activities are sending money from Canada to Iran and from Iran to Canada. At least that's where the company makes most of its profits (Source: I happen to know the owner very well and maybe that's… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/09/2010

I operate a business with 12 employees. I use Taheri Exchange for all my corporate transactions. I am happy with the service I have received. I deal in about 12 exotic currencies and they deal in any currency I ask for. Taheri's US dollar wires always arrive same day and exotic currency wires usually take 3 business days to go from Taheri's account to the destination. If I get my order in before the 12:00 am cut off time, the wires arrive in 2 business days. Before I started to deal with… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/08/2010 by David G Rose (1 review written)

This company is the definition of unreliability. They locked $24,000 of my money in their Forex account for 16 days. Basically, this company takes your money and invests it in the Forex market until the rates fluctuate in their own favor and only then, after locking the profit, they transfer your money!! That's right, they are investing with your money and not even paying back the risk free interest rate of holding your asset. It's also ridiculous how they transfered $24,000 in 4 different… Read Full Review

“Actually Ignore whatever the other comment saying that...”

Written on: 04/08/2010

Actually Ignore whatever the other comment saying that they have had a good experience. That person probably transfers $100 at a time.
Samson is very accurate in his explanation on how the company operates. Fraud is the other name for it. They give you the 3-day promise on the day of the transaction which automatically turns into a 10 day obligation on their behalf if you keep calling them to see why the process is being delayed.
This company kept over $60,000 of my money into their bank… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2009 by davidcohen144 (1 review written)

Recently I needed to purchase some foreign currencies for my mom who has gone on a trip to several countries. Taheri Exchange had all the currencies I needed when I needed them and I bought them. THE TAHERI EXCHANGE RATE WAS BETTER THAN THE SPECIAL EMPLOYEE RATE THAT THE ROYAL BANK GIVES ITS OWN EMPLOYEES. I would have been impressed but I already knew that I could expect such good treatment from my previous good experiences with Taheri Exchange. Also, the bills were all crisp and appeared to… Read Full Review

My account executive at Taheri Exchange is frank and honest with me. She advised that EURO wires originating in Canada take 2 business days to settle. That is exactly how long it took. Other places promised same day service but I retained the services of Taheri Exchange precisely because they explained the intricate step by step process EURO goes through before reaching it's destination. The exchange rates always good as well… Read Full Review

Taheri Exchange of Toronto has a system in which you deposit your money in their overseas agent's account, they promised me to "send the payment the next day", then after a week they told me "It usually takes 10 days", then after 3 weeks they said "there is no time limit for transfer!" and they made me sign the document stating the "indefinite time to process" policy, then they kept my money for about 2 months while they came up with all kinds of excuses and reasons why they can not complete… Read Full Review
