They do, but it's not the act of depositing $11,000 in cash that makes it suspicious.

It's when you tell a person the "why" and then they decide they want to deposit $9,000 instead.

 

But I've seen plenty of people who sell a car, or property, or other things that make that one-time deposit and have a valid reason for doing so.

But I've also seen people who will deposit $9,990 each time and that's definite grounds for a Suspicious Activity Report, which is just as bad.


 

I saw a guy walk in with a duffle bag full of cash once. It made me very uncomfortable. Also was in line at electronics department and.witnessed a kid with a backpack full.of cash buying a video game system. The cash still had the white banding around each bundle.
