Government Agents Seized $181,500 in Cash at Airport and Won't Give It Back

Published 4 hours agoFloridaFOX 5 New York

TAMPA - A Florida trucking company is suing two federal agencies, saying agents seized $181,500 in cash at Tampa International Airport and won't give it back.

The federal lawsuit filed by FGL Transport, Inc., and owners Scott Smith and Michael Rozenberg asks the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, along with agency officials, to return the money, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

The lawsuit claims that in September, the company gave employee Boris Nulman $191,500 and a plane ticket to Cleveland to purchase several big trucks. When the cash in Nulman's carry-on bag went through a Transportation Security Administration scanner, the agents pulled it aside for an inspection.

Nulman was later allowed to leave, but only with $10,000, according to the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. He never went to Cleveland to buy the trucks.

The lawsuit says an agent gave Nulman a receipt to document the $181,500, but the federal agencies now say only $159,950 was confiscated. That's $21,550 less than what the company says was seized.

"This is legitimate money," Rozenberg said. "There is nothing dirty about this. We have evidence to show we took this out of our business account. Something is fishy here."

2. Confiscating guns from thousands of innocent people, though, that's cool.

3. These numb brains should learn the rules of how much cash can fly with anyone!

Once the government confiscates something- even if declared innocent of wrong doing it can take months to get it back once it is in the system.
