Carrying cash through the airport, even though legal, is often a red flag which can result in TSA bringing in the police who may seize the cash; amounts as small as $500.00 have been seized.
There are much safer ways to transfer or transport money around the country. Have your bank wire money to a bank account, or write yourself a check to be deposited at your destination. There is nothing wrong with carrying cash, but law enforcement, at the very least, may pull you out of line and question you. Save yourself the risk of TSA calling in the police because you are carrying an amount of cash which the local police may seize.
If you have had your assets seized while traveling, there is a possibility of getting your cash back. Contact the Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz today to find out your options.
