Anyone see the episode of Breaking Bad where Walt was pulling money out of the clothes dryer? Was that a euphemism for money laundering, or is there an actual benefit to washing stolen money?

D_Evans45     
wasn't just stashing it in there like a cubby hole, I might add. A single bill had gotten stuck on top of those raised notches like a stray sock...

Walt may have just been trying to make the money look a little more 'circulated'.

Well, did he try to cross the border with it? If not, he did nothing illegal. Its possibly illegal, but, $50k seems pretty small time for laundering. More likely, it was money he saved up over time and was going to smuggle it back to help his family.

/Since the pool-money incident occured at the end of that one episode, maybe the next opens with the laundering scene, giving us 6 whole days to forget what happened...

Also, I wonder where the cops are going to store the $25k while this case gets processed.

Remittances are the easier way to transfer money from the US to Mexico. There are some fees involved, but you don't run the risk of confiscation, loss, or robbery.

Not for sure on that... just the way I remember it. I'm still trying to get over my annoyance at waiting a year to see the second half of this season... so I haven't been watching Tivo or re-runs...

I doubt it, all the wetbacks around here money order their dough home into Mexico on a regular basis, like pay day. Some check cashing places are like Guadalajara around here on Friday afternoon. No proof, but given his name, the situation (huge amount of cold cash hidden in detergent), and the destination, I smell cartel.

Perhaps a new day will Dawn for this man when the police ultimately Finish the investigation. I can't imagine how his Seventh Generation of kids must be feeling right now.

Why is it the government's business if you have $10k or more? Do they declare it to us every time they waste $10k? I don't think so.

untaken_name: Why is it the government's business if you have $10k or more?


Because it is a limit to combat crimes like money laundering. If you don't acknowledge that you're moving large sums of money it is assumed that you are attempting to avoid anyone asking how you got that money in the first place, and thus that you probably got it through illegal means.

Do they declare it to us every time they waste $10k? I don't think so.

You would be shocked how much information is published that nobody bothers to read.

Do evidence lockers have enough space for 5k in cash and 2lbs of weed?

I've never understood the whole "shuffling wads of American currency out of America".

It's like back when the Spanish took ships full of gold back to Spain. All that did was increase the amount of gold in Spain, devaluing gold and creating inflation. The French and English set out to trade and harvest and bring home goods.

It would make sense for launderers to be buying goods they can use or sell in the countries of production. It's how they used to do things but then even that got tricky.

Yes, I know what they say. But that is presumption of guilt without evidence. That's not supposed to be ok. That's kind of my whole point.
