My guess is it is some security setting in your IE. IE really is the worst browser. Try Firefox or Chrome. They are both free downloads. It also could be some security software like Norton or McAfee. When I click the link it goes directly to the mp3 and starts playing.

Yep, was aware of the $10,000 declaration, the important thing about that is that it is $10,000 in total currency (including travelers cheques), not just $10,000 cash.

Yes, 10k in "negotiable instruments". That means that say you are going home with 100k in travelers checks. If you make those checks out to someone, and sign them they no longer are negotiable and do not have to be declared. This is true coming into the country as well.

Wow, that's interesting. Has this factoid been Neseserianized (i.e. are you sure)?

If you make the traveler's check out to someone, and sign it, it is no longer a negotiable instrument. Yes, I am sure of this.

Yes, but has it been established that such "no longer negotiable instruments" need not be declared (despite what the letter of the law may seem to say)?

With the price of gold nowadays, why not just lug 4 lbs of gold around...instant 6-figure bankroll, and not I suppose a negotiable instrument.

The gold is a good and must be declared. It would also have to be turned into cash before buying chips. I have cleared customs with over 10k in chips going into Canada. After looking up the legislation they said I didn't have to declare it.
