    It's not illegal but there are some states are quite liberal in their application of asset forfeiture law. In many cases it's "guilty until proven innocent" if they "think" the money may be involved in illegal activities. If you're driving cross country through states like Iowa I would avoid carrying large sums of cash. You catch an officer in a pissy mood you could be screwed. Chances are you're ok but if you can legally transfer the money electronically I'd go that way.

    After this happened, I checked another one of my banks and they also had a fee for taking cash over a certain amount. Come to think of it, both of these bank accounts are business accounts so maybe they don't charge for personal accounts.

    And it doesn't have to be over $10k for this to happen either. It could be a few thousand.
