Taking $80,000 in cash to Pakistan?

If we don't investigate WHY someone would do that we are really being let down by the people claiming to keep us safe.

Absolutely, I'd never do such a thing! I'd rather stuff it in my socks!

Sarcasm aside, the issue is not that the passenger was transporting $80,000; he was transporting $80,000 in cash. That kind of money in cash (as opposed to a check) usually points to a desire to circumvent SOMETHING. I'm not saying the guy was up to no good, but the chances are he was trying to circumvent something. Why not just transfer the money via a bank draft or some other means, such as via an electronic bank transfer?

In any event, I'm glad they nailed the guy who stole it. JFK sure seems to have it's share of people "working" the luggage and cargo that passes through that airport.

Anyone who transports that much money in a suit case is up to something nefarious. Be it tax evasion, drugs, or funding some kind of illegal activity. This should be investigated. Also the person who stole the money should be prosecuted

Maybe because a CTR report has to be filed on any bank transfer over 10K per the new 'Terrorism act'. That leads to the possibility that the 'transporter' had something up his sleeve. I agree the case should be investigated but don't forget some people out there are not that smart so don't prosecute the guy yet....unless maybe with stupidity.

The guy was obviously smart enough to be in possession of $80,000 in cold cash. Either it was his own money, in which case he was smart enough to earn it/save it, or someone else thought he had the smarts to transport it on their behalf. In either case, a retard usually doesn't come into possession of that kind of cash.

Gee, I'm always reminded by people before I travel overseas to observe the local customs. I wonder why it doesn't work in reverse when people from other countries travel here to the States?
