Don't worry, you can make it a saga and try to pass in the same way once or twice a year, next time 0 USDs and try to bribe them with Bitcoins. lawl.

Hey Nefario, for those of us who might wish to travel to the states (with a credit card as well) do you have any advice? What made customs suspicious? Did you have a t-shirt that said "F the Fed" or something? Did you answer YES to one of the questions: Nazi, Communist, Terrorist, Bitcoinist?

Greenlandic tupilak. Hand carved, traditional cursed bone figures. Sorry, polar bear, walrus and human remains not available for export.

No I looked totally normal.

Advice:
Prepare, have a landing buddy, someone who will meet you at the airport, work out your story with them first (where you'll be staying, for how long, how you know them, how long you know them etc.) so if you get stopped they can call this person.

Have about $300-600 cash on you AND a credit card, arriving with all cash also throws up red flags.

Don't lie

Wipe your phone, laptop, and any electronic device or storage medium (including USB keys) so if they ask to have a look you can comply, but they won't get anything. Store your stuff in the cloud encrypted and get it after you arrive.

Don't mention bitcoins.

Nefario,

Does this mean they went snooping around through all your electronic devices?
Did they make copies of your data?

I was nearly tasered a few years ago at SFO for initially refusing to allow the customs agents to read through the emails on my laptop.
It is disgusting that the USA has turned into such a police state.

ugh sorry to hear that Nefario, i seriously hate this country some times... The terrorists won back in 2001, they succeeded in inflicting a terror so harsh on the US government and many of its citizens, that we threw away every bit of dignity we had, and flailed out at the rest of the world violently. it is sad and pathetic, and I wish there was some path to betterment.

I probably would have claimed I had money in currencies in other countries, and would be retrieving it via money exchange digitally, once I settled in.

ZOMG Moo!
