You can avoid the Foreign Currency Conversion Charge by sending U.S. Dollars to your BFSFCU account.

  • *Foreign exchange rates are internal to our processor and are not reflected in foreign exchange rate information provided by other sources.

  • Our processor uses the foreign currency exchange rate in effect at the time the transaction is converted to US dollars and applies the Currency Conversion Charge prior to crediting your BFSFCU account.
