Shouldn't that be written  €3K?

/Three Euros above absolute zero.

3k€ is just a bit over $4k. That seems a bit low.

It is.  The US flags at $10K.  Or at least it used to (I haven't worked at on of the banks in a while)

I know you have to declare anything over $10k if you travel internationally and fill out a form.

Wait, there are Farkers that are worth more than 3K€?

They also flag multiple transactions of smaller amounts in attempts to circumvent the 10k limit.

if you're harvesting organs, probably


of course the liver is of little value, but someone may enjoy it with a nice chianti if they're willing to purchase it by the pound.

The president of the consumer organization Facua, Rubén Sánchez, also questioned the fact the archive would be held by the secret service.
"Who will guarantee that the secret services won't work for the government with this information?" he said.


"Can I give you my word as a Spaniard?"
"No good!  I've known too many Spaniards."

The UK flags cash transactions of £10k and over, but the wording on TDA reads like they will flag and record any transaction, including transfers between accounts, paying bills etc.

/At least the US habit of letting cops just take any sums of cash off people with no recourse is unheard of here. Police can seize cash but they then have to go to court and prove it came from crime, although as a civil case which is only balance of probabilities rather then the criminal standard of beyond reasonable doubt. So you could lose your cash but not just at the whim of a local cop.

And now you realize why Bitcoins are becoming more and more popular in Europe.

1) Make people to keep their money in banks
2) Force a haircut on all bank depositors ala Cyprus
3) Banking crisis is over!
4) Bonuses for all bankers!

You should at least try to hide your real identity.

How in the fark are you going to spy on 34 million of anything and get valuable data that you can use?  That's not trying to find a needle in a haystack.  That's going down to the needle factory with an electromagnet looking for the one.
