this could go so much farther than $10,000 transactions. in this day and age even using cash seems to be viewed as "suspicious activity", after all
why use cash when debit or credit card is so much easier? just think as cash withdrawals or deposits being spotlighted as possible indicators of
crime. you might be up to something and require some attention to see what. you could be buying or selling drugs, illegal guns/ammo or
participating in some other crime, maybe even giving that cash to a "terrorist organization". i remember not too awful long ago something about some
areas wanting an ID card to be recorded for "cash transactions". add this into the mix and you could even see the OTHER end of things, like you only
withdrew say $500, yet in the same time period you spent $1,000, which would tell a suspicious system that you were getting "illegal money" somehow,
in other words you are committing SOME sort of CRIME and need to be investigated. or if you withdrew $1,000, but only "spent" $500, you are paying
some sort of criminal enterprise for something.
lets be honest do you really believe if handed this type of power that they will ONLY get the records of people they suspect of something? or would
they just take it all in case at some point there might be something they missed and they could go through the records to check it out? or if they
can't "prove" anything finding any little discrepancy to show probabilities? how many criminals (and innocents) are put away just due to "
circumstantial evidence"? it isn't all that hard to figure it out what they would do.
businesses already do this type of thing with employees. i once in a position to see this happen, a head office guy wanted to run the location i
worked in as well as getting rid of the current boss. so he came in one saturday (when he KNEW the boss was off) and took all the files that the
currant boss's information would be in and left with them. the following monday they got rid of the old boss because of a discrepancy they were able
to find within those files. basically they dug up dirt on him through going through them with a fine toothed comb. ONE time he had payed for work done
THE NEXT DAY. we were told about why they got rid of him, and sadly I KNEW the circumstances of it. it was an accident, we had policies about not
being allowed to pay for stuff except on lunch break or before/after work, after the work had been done the boss had a family emergency, in a panic he
pretty much ran out pausing only long enough to say he had an emergency and was on the way to the hospital. the FIRST THING next morning HE CAME to me
BEFORE he was officially on and told me what had happened and that he needed me to cash him out. so due to that one instance of panic induced
forgetfulness and rushing he was gotten rid of. he had paid in full without any prompting (showing honesty and integrity) yet when they wanted to nail
his hide to the wall they dug through the records to find it, and used it to point to "honesty and integrity issues". just because the work was
payed for a day late he lost his job and likely had problems finding a replacement due to the circumstances of being dismissed.
