Airport Customs Seizure

The Facts:

Client brought back $32,000.00 worth of jewelry from overseas and did not declare it to Customs. The client was going through a difficult time in her life and acted out of character. The client was advised by way of letter that the CBSA would be conducting an investigation to determine if criminal charges would be laid. Client hired Ms. Forhan as soon as she received the letter and Ms. Forhan approached the CBSA investigator immediately. Ms. Forhan obtained disclosure, assisted the client in drafting an apology letter, getting positive reference letters and supporting documentation. As a result of Ms. Forhan’s quick intervention and skillful negotiation, the CBSA agreed not to recommend criminal charges.

The Result:

No criminal charges laid.
