Feds seize $27K from couple at PHL-Filed no charges - And will NEVER have to return their money!Submitted by RonPaulRocks1 on Fri, 01/24/2014 - 04:49
So what if the couple just didn't understand the forms? What if they can explain where the money came from? (NOT THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE TO IF THEY WERE TRAVELING LEGALLY)What if this was their entire life savings? Will the feds give it back? The answer is shocking. No they will not, nor are they required to. It does not matter the reason, if you fail to properly report the cash when entering the US the money then belongs to Uncle Sam. End of story. No recourse.
How do you like that the Feds called it a humanitarian act to allow the nice couple to keep $500 of their own money? Would not the humanitarian thing to do be to HELP them fill out the form properly once the cash is presented?
Welcome to the United States!Land of the free indeed!
