Where can I exchange Bolivares Fuertes to Dollars in the US?

I have 24,000 bolivares for sale, worth $5581 in US dollars. Tried many banks and airports in NY, however no one will exchange. I will not be visiting Venezuela anytime soon. If you are interested please contact me at pryankeefan69@yahoo.com.

First of all it is not worth $5,581 as that would be at the official rate of Bs.4,3 to US$1 which is a number that the general public can not use.

The true value IF they are post 2008 bolivars is about US$2,600.

They are not accepted as currency anywhere outside of Venezuela.

If they are pre 2008 bolivars then the value is about US$2.60

If anyone wants more information on the differences between the old & new Bolivars then have a look here:

The exchange rate is about 25 Bs for 1 $ so you have less than 1000 $.

The official rate of 6.30 is a big fat lie. So, never use your credit card or atm in Venezuela. Bring cash and exchange it in any particular shop or restaurant owner that they will be happy to get $$$

Hello,

The parallel rate right now is 26 to a dollar. They are only worth $ 923.00. They are likely going down from here. I am interested at the parallel rate, whatever that is when you sell. I don't think that you will find anyone to take them at the official rate because they are not worth that in the world market or in Venezuela.
