Plus you could instantly become a target with that much cash on hand...

Did you know you can do that yourself, the same as the bank? Go to any office supply store and buy the same pens the bank uses to verify validity. I have them and use them on ALL cash transaction sales...whether it's a car, bike, beachball, etc...makes no difference. All cash gets the "test".

The counterfeit pens are based on the fact, only the feds can buy the paper for currency. Several years ago, someone figured out how to wash $5 bills and reprint them as 50s. The pen test showed a good bill because it was the right paper. I haven't heard about this practice for a while leading me to believe the new printing techniques have fixed the problem on newer bills.

This might have bad written all over it. This man is buying parts and shipping them to you to stuff in the car to ship to him? You need to follow the law and stuffing parts in the car so he doesn't have to pay taxes on them should automatically draw a red flag. This is not a buddy you are trying to help out, this is a complete stranger from another country. If he has not sent you the parts yet, you should back out of this now. IMO.

It is quite common for buyers here to ship parts back with cars so I wouldn't consider this a red flag personally. It costs an arm and a leg to bring in parts individually here mainly because the shipping costs are so high, it is a big distance after all. Makes perfect sense to maximise the container space rather than shipping empty space.
