International payment for ham gear

Hello from Vienna !

I have a question: Several times I used an International Money Order I
bought at American Express here in Vienna - Austria. Up to 200 $ US the
prize is about 5 $.
Today a ham from the states told me, that he has to pay bank charges of
$10.00 to clear a IMO. More than 20 times I sent an IMO from American
Express (the only bank here in Vienna where we can buy a IMO) and the
friends in the states never told me that they have to pay for changing.
I thought, these MOrders from American Express can be changed at every
bank or USP Office.

Is this correct ?
