Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Is this friend someone you have personally met and engaged socially with?
Or is this a remote friendship where you met the person on the internet?
Have you been informed of any transfer fees, tariffs or shipping charges that need to be paid so that the gold can be exported?
Ok, I wanted to check on the situation and make sure that this wasn't one of the internet based scams that are so prevalent that try to fleece trusting people out of their money...
I am going to opt out as this is something that you would need to just contact US Customs directly to find out if there are any restrictions on this type of importation.
