Criminal tries to spend Million Dollar Bill
A man in North Carolina was arrested and charged with two felony counts after attempting to use a $1 million bill to pay for stuff at Walmart.
According to a police report, 53-year-old Michael Anthony Fuller approached the register at the Walmart on Lowes Boulevard in Lexington with $476 worth of merchandise and handed the cashier a $1 million bill.
He assured the employee that the legal tender note was totally legit.
Oddly enough, store staff refused to take his word for it, and called the police instead. Officers confirmed that there was, in fact, “no such thing” as a million-dollar bill.
(Fun Fact Break: The largest denomination ever printed was $100,000, issued by the Treasurer between December 1934 and January 1935 for use by Federal Reserve Banks.)
Fuller was booked into Davidson County Jail on Friday, and his bond was set at $17,500. He was not allowed to pay out of pocket, despite having that exact bill on him at the time.
