Can you comment on this unjustifiable behaviour by customs???
Customs and Border protection is generally given carte blanche authority to do what they want and how they want. If you failed to declare $9,100.00 to customs authorities prior to leaving China, They may deem you trying to smuggle or lauder money out of the country. If they want you to pay for a new ticket back, then you will be buying a new ticket back. Next time try
using smaller dollar amounts and declaring to customs authorities the money, but keep 2-3 credit cards with you for emergency purposes, and keep the balance at $000.00 and notify the credit card companies they you are traveling out of your country and were your going. This way if you cash is seized, then you still have your credit cards.
