Sending Money Abroad
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  I admit that I was wrong with regards to sending small
amounts of money to foreign countries in the mail.  Here's the
law from U.S. Customs:

  It is legal to transport any amount of currency or other monetary
  instruments into or out of the United States. However, if you
  transport, attempt to transport, or cause to be transported
  (including by mail or other means) currency or other monetary
  instruments in an aggregate amount exceeding $10,000 (or its foreign
  equivalent) at one time from the United States to any foreign place,
  or into the United States from any foreign place, you must file
  a report with U.S. Customs. This report is called the Report of
  International Transportation of Currency or Monetary Instruments,
  Customs Form 4790 ( http://www.customs.gov/travel/forms.htm )
  Furthermore, if you receive in the United States, currency or other
  monetary instruments in an aggregate amount exceeding $10,000
  (or its foreign equivalent) at one time which has been transported,
  mailed, or shipped to you from any foreign place, you must file
  a CF-4790. These forms can be obtained at all U.S. ports of entry
  and departure.

Sorry for overreacting.

Musically,
