Me too, on both counts.I traveled a ton for business. I got a lot of "welcome homes" from the border agents ...
Any amount over $10K coming in or out of the US has to be reported, whether carried in cash or transferred via bank, wire, or online. Having made countless transfers in both directions over the years, I always made sure I followed the rules.They always cared about money through and I was always asked if I was carrying $10k+ bucks with me.
A colleague coming into SFO once carried "too much" in cash on behalf of one of his German employees to exercise some company stock purchase/options; His version of the story was "they had me against the wall with guns drawn".
