    I happened upon this Web site by accident. As I was reading, I remembered when I took Amtrak to Florida to purchase my car with cash, DEA agents came to me and the person I was riding with to search our bags. I had $11K in a secret compartment in my knapsack and I guess they thought it was just padding on the shoulder strap and never found it. Has anyone else heard of anything like this happening?

    AMTRAK right? Government owned correct? Consent to search is implied when you step foot on AMTRAK. Don't believe me? The Government "owns" all of our miltary bases right? Well you consent to a search when you go one one of those too.

    Also, who carries that much cash? Drug dealers that's who. The Government watches for movements of large sums of cash to protect against drug dealers as well as terrorism funding. You wanna' move a large sum of cash? Fill out the proper paperwork. You have to do the same through a bank am I right? Where's the loss of rights? Use a fuckin' bank you why dontcha'? Oh you can't do that because they're all owned by "The Jews" right?

    Everytime I fly overseas I have to fill out a paper that states that I'm not carrying more than $10,000 in "monetary instruments". What's the problem with that? There is none.

    You know what? You conspiracy nuts would be screaming boody murder if some terrorist financed an operation here in the states by moving large sums of money and the Fed did nothing about it.

    Hypocritical whack jobs every one of ya'.

    It happens. When it does the people with nothing criminal about them have a hard time getting their property back if they can get it back at all.

    Sixty minutes if I recall did a show on it happening in Louisiana ten years ago. They were snagging new cars on a regular basis.

    Here under the color of law the sheriff in the banks name stole heavy equipment, personal property out the whazoo, they use a torch to break and enter into private property without a warrant, threaten people along the way as they took equipment that did not belong to Rod or I either one, (the sheriff handed out his cards along the way, "have gun will travel") plus they raided our home and searched it. When my daughter arrived and they had the doors to the house open, cupboard doors had been left open in their haste to search the place. They were not suppose to be here with someone here at all unless someone was here representing my interest for a bank replevin for the mine equipment. They also were not to touch anything that the bank did not have explicit make, model and serial number for. Later an attorney told the court "it is a special replevin your honor so we could get make model and serial numbers". Corrupt assholes get "special favors" in the law because they are "special". The Supreme court ruled Rod was not a party to the action but still it left him with no viable recourse to recover what they stole or resources to make a living as he has done for the last twenty years. They also ignored blatant fraud on the part of the bank, (loan shorted were done with over one hundred-twenty bank created documents admitted by the bank that were admitted to be solely bank created and alter by the bankers in court). The rule of law really does not mean a whole lot to many of the political leaders. judges or many in law enforcement.

    It is sickening what is happening to this countries freedoms and what is being done to people in this country. I know a lot of people think they are safe in their own homes and their property is safe but they are not and neither is their property, personal or real.

    It was a question. I'm neither a conspiracy theorist nor a drug dealer. My money wasn't confiscated and I consented to search. No biggie to me. I just thought it was a little odd and didn't even remember it until I accidentally saw the Web site. You follow the letter of the law so good for you. :clap2:

    Yeah, that's the way it works sometimes. I have been on Amtrak a few times and never had been asked to be searched. It was just that one time that I had a large sum of money on my person. It's like the like the bank notified the authorities and they figured I was going to Florida to buy drugs which would have been stupid because it would have been cheaper to just rent a car.

    I travel a bit from time to time. I do carry a bit of cash when I travel but not a huge amount. What would have been the outcome of your trip if your backpack had of been stolen from you? It can happen easier than you think. jgbkab, sometimes your posts are pretty thought prevoking and it shows you have the ability to reason (even if I sometimes disagree with you) but in this case you didn't act very reasonably. Think my friend, think...

    Why were you carrying $11,000 in a backpack? Why wouldn't you wire transfer it or pay by check?

    Yes, I know...it was dumb. It was back in my younger days and it was for the purchase of a vehicle but the owner didn't want to accept anything but cash. I really KNOW better now. But I really wanted the car and it was for a steal at $8K. Maybe they were drug dealers...who knows. And at the time I was working two full-time jobs. I would have been devastated if it would have been stolen but I would have had to come home and do it again...

    The owner of the car only wanted cash.

    Was it stolen?

    That's the first thing I'd think.
