When someone doesn't follow the international exchange rate and takes you for a ride. Usually common among people who have no money.
So I was in Montreal for the weekend, and I couldn't find a Bureau de Change anywhere. The only person I could find was this complete mess of a man looking in trashcans for lunch.

I asked him "can you make change?" and I showed him a fifty dollar bill U.S..

I got back five dollars Canadian.

I was given The Beggar's Exchange Rate.
