The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is increasingly stopping and examining imported shipments of food attempting to enter the United States.

Why is U.S. Customs Issuing So Many Requests for Information (CBP Form 28)?

WARNING! U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has issued a record number of CBP Form 28s (Request for Information) and CBP Form 29s (Notice of Action) in 2010, and there is no end in sight. Import Specialists of CBP at ports of entry all over the United States are sending out these forms to importers demanding responses.

You may legally carry or mail any amount of money you want into or out of the United States, but if it is more than $10,000 at one time, you better first report it to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Otherwise, you risk U.S. Customs taking it from you, and never getting it back. Why? Because the failure to report the international transportation of money is a violation of the Currency and Foreign Transaction Reporting Act.
