People have the right to walk around with $75K without expecting to get robbed by the BLM, that's just bullshit you Liberals make excuses that she was just asking for it.

This is why stand your ground and the second amendment is so God Damn important.

Everyone should be required to carry a gun for self defense.

You think $75K is so much money that you should call an armored truck to transport it?


Lol. Reading comprehension again. Where did I say that? She withdrew $75k and walked out of a bank. That's. Fucking. Retarded. Should she have gotten robbed? Fuck no. A crime was committed and the parties involved will do the time. Cash based businesses use armored trucks. They must be stupid I guess. We'll just let the Walgreens manager run over to BOA and drop off that $40k in cash. Nothing bad will happen there. Jesus this get nauseating.

Yes or no. Carrying $75k cash is smart?

MrMagic says
So, if she was going to make a cash sale to buy property, buy a big boat, buy a collector car or maybe a motor home, do many private sellers accept credit cards?


It's called a wire transfer. You do use a bank, right? Taking $75k of cash out and carrying it is probably a top 10 dumbest things I've heard anyone try to argue against. There are plenty of ways to get cash from one individual to another. There simply isn't a discussion to be had here. I'm surprised you're wanting to have it.

MrMagic says
So what, it happens all the time for any amount over $10K or even if you structure lower amounts.


What are you talking about? I never said it didn't happen all the time. Why would you want the government knowing about ANY of your finances wherever you can do it? Even if it's for legal purposes? I for sure don't want the government in my business.

* EDIT - below is a quote from Bob. Something messed up*

*EDIT END - Wookie typing below*

This too. Usually like a $3 fee. Or $0 if you actually have what would be considered a lot of money in the bank. I didn't realize that in 2018 people didn't understand how to transfer money from one person to the other. You learn something everyday I suppose.

You know Bob, once again, reading comprehension works wonders. Try reading the link in the OP and you'll see the bank teller send a text to her boyfriend that the lady was leaving with the money. Plus, in many cases when you withdraw this amount you have to give the bank a few days notice to get the cash together, so the bank knew when she was coming back.

Amazing that lack of real life skills for some here.

Those that can't carry $75,000 as throw away money are losers.
Real winners carry $1/4 million just to overpay at the parking meter so they don't have to worry about running out of time.

One can be robbed/shot/killed over $25.00.
Carrying cash is not the problem.
Bleeding heart Trump/Rep/Cons could pass a law removing the hands of thieves & fraudsters.
The convicted probably won't be repeat offenders.

Fuck all Americans! 330,000,000 could simply say "We won't tolerate crime!"
You trash will not do anything,hope you are robbed shot & handicapped for life,for pocket change.
Any American should be able to be in public without being physically touched.

Well it could have been an insurance check, and the woman had been in contact with the teller about when the funds would be available so she could withdraw it.
There was obviously some anticipation on both parties part, the victim in this case I'm sure was in communication with the Mudshark about funds and when those funds would be available. The Mudshark had her Obama Son's ready to pounce when they became available. As they had to prepare to rent a car before hand to be ready.

What I don't get is what part the Cross Over played in the heist. The first guy jumped out of the Cross over, then the cross over went to the road ready to turn in. Then the Dodge came roaring up when the guy was having a problem taking what was rightfully Obama son's money to steal.

The bank tellers are all 1. poorly paid 2. resentful if your bank balance is huge 3


I can confirm this.

I was at my credit union trying to deposit a semi-large amount of cash ($3,500 for the sale of an ATV). The woman behind the counter casually remarked, "Based on your balance, perhaps you could look into one of our mutual fund investment accounts."

So this tells me:

1. The teller can see pretty much every detail about your financial status with the institution.
2. They are human beings who make judgments about you based on that information.
3. The financial institutions are encouraging tellers to make product suggestions to customers based on this information.

Cool, no answer. You like to talk around things like it makes reality go away or what the conversation was about.

$75k cash in your pocket/purse/brief case, good idea, yes or no?

While it's happened to idiots, good luck stealing my wire transfer. Good luck stealing my cashiers check written to an individual/business and being able to cash it. My ENTIRE point was that the women was fucking stupid for walking out of that bank with $75k on her. This is indisputable because there are other ways to transfer cash to an individual or business. You are essentially agreeing through argument that it was a fine idea for her to have that much cash. That simply is not very smart when you can get the money to another party though different means.

MrMagic says

What? A wire might take a couple hours (same day usually though), but when the money transfers, I can take it out of my bank as cash. Your statement doesn't compute.

Listen, if you think an individual, specifically a woman, should be walking around with $75k then I think the discussion is done here (sorry it's sexist). You can throw out the anomalies where people do this, but it doesn't make it smart or a good idea. If you can't understand that, then I'm moving on.

We had a thread about this a while ago. She is a small business owner (gas station or something like that). Money was likely meant to be for paying contractors and/or employees under the table, which I can not blame her for - this is very common in ethnic and redneck neighborhoods in SE Texas.

Understood. Glad to get a logical explanation for why carrying that much cash is necessary instead of 20 quotes from something I already said. Albeit it sounds like it was for illegal payments to avoid taxes, which is just as dumb and illegal. So my opinion/statement about carrying $75k cash still stands as a really dumb fucking idea and there are better ways to transfer money.

Gee, in my real life skills in even the smallest most podunk bank there is more than 1 teller in a bank as well as several bank officers. Most people would see the bank manager to set up a large cash withdrawal The odds of a particular teller having enough information to rent a car and set up accomplishes ahead of time are pretty low.

Wow saving a sub $10 fee for a cashiers check would certainly make all the difference in a 75,000 deal. ROFLOL.

This is just it, and the point I've been trying to make to him. IF it HAS to be cash, it's almost certainly illegal. Carrying $75k is dumb as fuck to make a cash payment. A wire, cashiers check, fuck maybe even paypal will allow that amount from a checking account. There's ZERO reason to EVER for legal purposes carry that much cash. Which as you said makes this situation end to end seem sketchy.

And there's only one person here questioning this. Weird. The entire board must be idiots.

Dumb - no, she will save money on taxes and likely has been doing this for tens of years until meeting a friendly neighborhood bank teller. Husband should have carried a gun, which he said on TV he will do from now on (I guess he was complacent because it worked for a long time, and not packing was dumb). Illegal - absolutely yes

We don't though, only she does. Taxes are here to stay and fuck the people that try to skirt the law. I/we pay the difference. It's dumb and frankly I hope the shit she was doing gets uncovered and she pays back taxes and penalties regardless of being robbed . This goes for illegals too. I HATE taxes, but don't live here if you don't want to pay them. She's a criminal just like the people that robbed her if she's skirting tax laws.

and that comment proves it..

Let me help clear up your cluelessness. The cash discount wasn't to save $10 on a bank check... duh... the cash discount is to get a better deal from the seller of what she's buying. How about a 10% savings on a $75K purchase by paying cash??? Wouldn't that be a little bit more than $10? Need my calculator again to figure that out?

I do that all the time with cash deals... I know that such a unique concept to some of the participants in this thread, based on comments..

My bank use to do that to me all the time when they would bring up my accounts. I'd see their eyes light up when they viewed their screen, then the question comes out "would you like to speak with one of our financial advisors", or try and pitch some other sort of investment product? It actually became uncomfortable, depending on what other customers were within earshot.

I finally told them put a BIG note on my account to never ask me again... I now also try to deal with one or two tellers that know me, so they know the drill and just do what I ask them to do.

Why would they ask you anything in the first place? If you've got lots of money, you're not actually going into the bank. You know that right? They sell stuff to the little people. People with money have friends on the board, etc. They're not dealing with some fucking teller.

Everyone is going to puke at this point with this nonsense. Check, cashiers check, wire transfer, paypal, apple pay and yes, some individuals have the ability to accept credit cards to pay for your items. There's ZERO reason to bring cash to this type of transaction. If anything, you'll end up like the lady that got robbed.

I'm not sure what else can be said on this. There's not a normal person here that would think bringing $75k in cash anywhere, regardless if it's for a transaction is smart. There are other ways to pay. You have to be right even though you're wrong. It shows.

Own the bank. If you're a shareholder AND have large deposits you can do what you want. You don't have to go into the bank. And yes, tellers and front line personal at any bank are simply selling stuff to people with no money. You didn't know that? They have separate sales people that sell to anyone with money. It's called an account executive (they'll label it VP of something or another). I don't deal with anyone in a physical bank branch. I don't need to go there. They come to me.

Stop... just stop.... you're (lack of) real world experiences are really showing..

We paid over $60K CASH for a race boat, not a cashiers check, not a money order, not a wire transfer...

Let's see how smart you really are to see if you can figure out why.


Tell me the reason. There's zero LEGAL transactions that HAVE to be done with cash in person. This is called drug dealing. Bartering by buying a boat someone is trying to get rid or in exchange for something, wait for it, illegal. All to fly under the radar. If it's to save 10% because you have cash on hand, you got fooled and could have negotiated a lower price with that idiot.

Who the fuck actually buys a boat anyway? Not a good use of money. $60k as well for a "race" boat.

Unless they're nautical enthusiast, most wealthy people just rent them. What do I know. I work at Walmart. Lol. FYI, $60k for a boat is chump change to boating enthusiasts. Have fun on your pontoon. Lol.

What, honesty? Not sure, but appreciate when people are honest. FYI, admitting being a dick is called honesty if you're confused.

I think I've deleted maybe 2-5 of your posts total and it was warranted. And if you were honest, you'd probably agree. Patrick could probably verify. So if you have a problem with moderators, your anger is misguided. You like taking conversations to the gutter. I don't mind playing in the gutter from time to time, but I don't live there.
