Heady Issues

An e-mail:

I’m a Customs Officer and we see human remains come across the border from

time to time. All you need to do is fill out the proper paperwork, in this

case, a 7523.

But if you try and smuggle in anything that is restricted or prohibited,

you’re in trouble. You have to declare everything. For example, if you want

to bring in more than $10,000.00 you have to declare it, fill out a simple

form, and be on your way. If you fail to declare it, we seize it. Even if

it’s a million bucks you won while gambling down in Mexico.

Hope that helps.
