Here is a good one. Police take down a man after he withdrew $200,000 of his own money from a bank. After the dust settles, he is cleared of any wrongdoing but the police still seize half his money???

They give it back later when the story came out.

ATLANTA – A rapper said that police stopped him outside of an Atlanta bank after he withdrew hundreds of thousands of dollars on Friday.

Sam Benson, who goes by the name “Blac Youngsta,” said it all began when he stopped by a Wells Fargo bank on Peachtree Rd. NE.

Benson said he withdrew $200,000 in cash from his account. He said when he came out of the bank, a police officer pointed at him.

“They come bum rushing me at the car, put me on the ground, putting guns to my head, so I’m like ‘What I’d do,’” Benson said. “A lady was like I’m not supposed to have…$200,000 on me. I’m like, ‘I’m a millionaire. How can I not have $200,000 on me?’”

Benson said police apologized. He said police initially took $100,000 of his cash, but later said that he had gotten that money back.

The rapper said he had withdrawn the cash to buy a vehicle. Initially, Benson said he was in the market for a Maybach, but after the incident at the bank, he said he was thinking about a Ferrari.

“I’m feeling fast,” Benson said.

if this guy wasn't high profileish, then I'm sure the outcome would've been a lot different. This kind of crap goes on everyday in the America. It's why I hate banks, they are the eyes of the government. Cash is evil, get your tracking device so you can be watched.

He had to give the bank at least 24 hrs before withdrawing that much cash. Probably more time than that. They don't keep that much money in the vault just laying around.
Also anything over $5k is reported to the govt as suspicious activity.

If I were him I'd stop going to that bank and sue them also, for having to go through that.
If I had such money in my account, I'd want nothing but royal treatment, not having the cops called on me! I'd be pissed.

Are cops now staking out banks waiting for people to withdraw large amounts of cash so they can take it from them?

I am always seeing reports of police seizures where they never have to justify it and it is never returned. Just like how the poster above pointed ut if he hadn't been high profile that money would have probably disapeared.

He will probably lose all his money trying to sue them. The government has written it into law to report people making large cash deposits and withdraws. Its all a part of the effort to stop drugs n terrorism. Right.....

I'm sure when this law was first brought to light people championed it.. then they tried to make a cash withdraw, and got reported. Or perhaps they had a large sum of cash on them and were stopped by police, and had to surrender their assets.

I believe the word used to describe this is extortion.

It's called "asset forfeiture" Check the ATS search and there are a lot of threads on it.

I had forgotten what they called it, but in my eyes it is stealing.

No, they were called by the bank's manager...


A call was made to police by the bank’s manager, Fox 5 Atlanta reports.

Why the need for cash in hand to buy a car. Dealer won't believe he has money? Make the deal and get a bank check to pay.

The next person to shake this person down won't be giving back the money.

That is the most sensible thing to do...but rappers like to flaunt with cash.

He says he was going to buy a car, but the dealer does not want cash. They don't want anything but a check of some sort.

I know that is a law that allows police to steal money from people and is legal, but having a call from the bank after a withdraw, that sounds fishy, it seems to me that perhaps the bank manager had something going on with the police and that is why they were waiting for him outside the bank to steal the money.

They could not even wait to have him leave the bank before doing the stop and take the money that would have stick better than robbing at gun point right outside the bank.

I find the whole thing actually hilarious.

Reminds me of that story about Mario Ballotelli the footy player.

When he played for Man. City he was out in his Bentley and the cops pulled him over. There was 5 grand or so on the passenger seat and the cops asked him why he was driving round with that much money.

"Because I'm Mario Ballotelli and I can."
Was the answer.


They let him go.

The manager has to report any withdrawal 10K or more. I think.

You can't take 200k out of a bank and not be flagged by the bank and police.

Are there such things as money orders anymore?

Yes I am sure that they do, but the report is that the local police assault him at gun point, to take the cash, the large cash withdraws are reported to the IRS and then they make the necessary inquiry as the reason why.

This was the local police.
