    in the near term i hope to convert a foreign currency that's in my possession. is there a means via an anonymous bank account to make that conversion whereby it's non traceable? any thoughts or experiences are appreciated.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but - what you're really looking for is a solution to launder money?

    If so, this is the wrong place for you as

    a) it's stupid to ask this sort of questions on a public forum to begin with but it's 10x as stupid to answer them - which is why the only replies you will get is from people (mostly scammers) trying to flog you their service.

    b) money laundering is a crime and therefore not allowed to be discussed here.

    No, it's not an issue of laundering money. The foreign currency was purchased and may be revalued at some point, it's not a matter of dirty money. my question had to do with an anonymous account at the point of converting to another currency?

    I remember when I was in Germany you could just walk up to a bank or currency exchange booth and get your $ exchanged right there. No ID, no questions, but it was not thousands of $ either. Any tourist location has these although the exchange rates are better if you are off the beaten path.

    I have a currency website and I know that travelex.com is doing online exchanges, I don't know if it is completely anonymous though! If it very important, I think you can find someone that trades virtual currency (e-gold was back in the days the #1 money laundering machine, now I assume Liberyreserve might be an option).

    Believe it or not, most people want or expect financial privacy, even in this gestapo age, and that is their actual motivation for seeking anonymous exchanges. It is a legitimate strong demand of the market, not the laundering project it gets slandered as. If a forum like this does not want to permit discussion of it by policy, that's one thing, but it really is tiresome to see people merely asking a question that facilitates their right to privacy, being presumed to be criminals.
