Not sure how much big money you mean, but if you take more than 10,000 dollars, she will need to declare it at customs when you arrive and fill in some forms.

So really you are worried about her being robbed, yet you are advertising the fact?

Re: how to get money in US?

If you have an account here, you can just wire the money from here
to the US.

I wire money all the time, but I do it in increments smaller than 10,000 USD. Even though the money is 100% legit, I don't want a bunch of
IRS people crawling up me arse.
