Google Exchange Rate Issue

Many Google Adwords users received a mail stating that the exchange rate displayed in their Adsense account is incorrect. The exchange rate was listed as 1:1.

Google adwords account holders from countries where the dollar rate was lower than their rates, were surprised, rather shocked to see the exchange rates issued incorrectly. However, users with rates lower than the US dollar were happy as the income would be higher. Well, Google is not that faulty or dumb.
Here is what Google had to say about this issue:
