The manager said there is no problem and there is no monthly limit. I have saved the email as a proof that I did check. Does this make me free from structuring and SAR business?
IME the branch wasn't the problem. TD Bank's back office AML people flagged me for suspicious behavior (depositing substantial amount of money orders) after a year. The branch knew I was minting points and had no problem with it. TD closed every account associated with me including my minor children, a church group I was treasurer of, three businesses, personal, and a guardianship account for my incapacitated mother. TD wasn't willing to discuss it at all.
