I have a friend in London and she has sent me a parcel with 9000 GBP in cash. How can I exchange it for rupees in India?

    To clarify, are you saying that your friend sent you a box full of Pound Sterling notes?

    @DJClayworth who sends large amount of cash from one country to another? In North America, it's drug dealers and other criminals.

    @RonJohn I don't disagree, but rather than outright accuse the OP of being a criminal drug dealer or their mule I thought I would ask some questions first. Dec 26, 2019 at 2:47
  • @DJClayworth India isn't North America; it's possible that they do things Differently over there...

This seems to be scam. Stay away from it. One cannot legally send cash in box. Depending on the reasons there is tax implications and various provisions of foreign currency management act.

The next is more likely someone claiming to be custom official or law enforcement asking for money.

  • You might be right, but this doesn’t answer the question.
