Re: Four AA FAs arrested at MIA for money laundering

I thought the reporting requirement was $10,000+ in cash per person. If they were together than you have to declare if the total sum is greater than $10k. You can’t split it amongst various people to get below the limit to avoid declaring. The first attendant who lied got customs suspicious. I don'...

Re: Four AA FAs arrested at MIA for money laundering

You are absolutely required to declare any amount over 10k. It doesn't mean you can't bring it in, you just have to make it known you have it. And on top of that, splitting up the cash for the purpose of not having to declare is illegal. The amounts are all different. If they were trying to launder...
