fredklein: What, suddenly it's illegal to have cash now? Where's the line drawn?
Tricky Chicken: If for some strange reason I preferred to travel with an excessive amount of cash on my person, is there a way to protect yourself? A way to document that the cash is legit?
Tricky Chicken: nexxus: fredklein: What, suddenly it's illegal to have cash now? Where's the line drawn?There really is no line in the US; the police can (civilly) seize your money on a whim in many, many jurisdictions. They then demand an explanation as to where to you got it, and if they don't like your answer they keep it.Crooks.So it is illegal to have money? I know just being rich makes you evil, but now it is also criminal?What is the cutoff for criminal posession of cash? If I carry $10,000 into a casino, am I breaking a law? Isn't that the buy-in for the main event?
NutWrench: The money is being checked for traces of narcotic substances to try to determine where the notes may have come from.Is there any money in circulation that doesn't have traces of coke on it?
nexxus: People with money are dangerous can't be tracked electronically!
