Many people have had cashed seized by TSA, DEA or other 3 letter federal agency at the airport. This is more and more often when people are traveling with cash within the US or even with less than $10,000 in or outside of the United States. IT IS NOT ILLEGAL TO TRAVEL WITH CASH. If you are traveling out of the countyr, you may have to declare your cash, but that does not stop them from executing a seizure either.
OUR U.S. Government has taken it upon themselves to seize your hard earned assets regardless. The Greater Cincinnati Airport (CVG) is notorious for taking money from travelers or reporting it to the next stop where travelers may be stopped and money seized. (i.e. LAX, ORD, DFW, etc)
It then is up to you to prove that the cash was earned and it is yours. This can often be done with bank records, sales receipts or other documents. I have traditionally charged a retainer of $3,000 plus 25% of the money recovered. Recently, I have added an associate to my firm and have the ability to handle these types of case with varying legal fees.
Fees may be as little as $500 down, but may involve a larger contingency or may include higher retainer with less contingency. If your cash was seized, you will receive a letter from the United States Department of Justice, generally 30 days or so after the seizure. It outlines your rights.
If you have had money or cash seized at the airport, you are entitled to representation to attempt to recover that money. Hire an experienced attorney to handle your case. Call the Bouldin Law Firm and speak to Mike or Kris Nevels at 859-581-6453 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
