there is such a provision, but it deals with large sums of cash money. you get the same scrutiny when you arrive into the US when you fill out the customs form or when you open a new bank account with a large cash deposit. however, it does NOT apply to purchases of new vehicles. that's horse****e. i bought 2 cars in January. never saw such a document nor have i ever.The dealer told me he needed info for "Homeland Security" WTF?
He handed me a credit application. I filled out my name, address and employer info and that is it. I did not sign the document. I didn't authorize a credit check or any of that bu*****t the form asks for.
They took my personal check on Sunday and delivered the car on Monday.
When it comes to filling out the paperwork, don't devulge and don't sign.
