Is it illegal to carry too much cash?

Your money is your own, right?

Not if TSA employees at the airport are in the mood to harass you! Watch the video to see what happened to one law abiding citizen!

Re: Is it illegal to carry too much cash?

it would be somewhat interesting if it was a huge amount, but 4.7k is nothing... wtf are these guys doing? Do they not realize that people carry a lot of cash when they travel? I'd be willing to bet that at least 100 other people went through that airport with more cash that day.


Obv avoiding the question of if they could do this with 500k or something, but at least that question would be somewhat interesting.

Re: Is it illegal to carry too much cash?

The answer to the question, I think, is that it is not illegal to carry any amount of cash but federal officials can confiscate it. Right?

Re: Is it illegal to carry too much cash?

This just seems like a huge instance of failure to communicate on the part of law enforcement.

Sure, there are the mountain men who support RP and are all about militias, but this kid so obviously falls under the more typical RP supporter, cash whore that doesn't want to pay taxes.

If you can't tell the difference, here it is: The militia men won't walk around with $5k in cash on their person.

There very well may be laws against transporting certain amounts of cash over state lines/thru airports, but I could hardly see it being under $10,000.

this kind of **** happens all the time to people who carry a lot less than 500k in cash, if you're traveling internationally you're supposed to declare and fill out a form if you want to carry more than 10k and you'll most likely still get harassed/robbed by customs...there was a huge thread in HSNL about this where many people shared stories about being harrassed by police/customs/DEA officers and some had tens of thousands of dollars confiscated just because the government was suspicious of the cash

the OP of this thread got royally ****ed by the government

hmmm not sure, i was talking about airlines but i don't see how you would have to declare anything when traveling by car...i don't know for sure but i can't see them making you go through all the trouble of declaring 10k just to drive across state lines (although it really wouldn't surprise me with how ****ed up the government is)
