How much money is going to be transferred?
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
Thank you. US has a federal law that any amount over $10,000, or aggregates thereof, or really anything suspicious, can and must be reported to the US Treasury. See HERE.
She can expect that the money would be reported. However, provided that this has nothing to do with illegal matters, it should not really matter. For example, plenty of rich foreigners come study on visas - even royalty - and have thousands or even millions transferred to them.
But she may be asked about this by the authorities at some point. So she should have all the paperwork to show that everything is legitimate.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of THREE OR MORE STARS and then click FINISH to submit that rating, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating (it does not cost anything extra to rate).
No problem. Actually this happens more often than you'd think. But the general answer is that it should not be an issue provided it can be explained away and it really has no connection to drugs or terrorism.
If this was coming from - say - Turkey or Lebanon - there would be much bigger questions.
Good luck, and please don't forget to RATE my answer with three or more stars and then click FINISH to submit that rating – it is the only way I get credit for my time with you – or, please use the SEND button to keep on chatting – I want you to be satisfied.
