Police: Man tried to use $1,000,000 bill at NC Walmart
Posted: 12:29 pm EST January 2, 2012

LEXINGTON, N.C. -- Police say a Lexington man was arrested after he insisted the million-dollar bill he wanted to use to pay for $476 worth of items at Walmart was real.

Investigators said 53-year-old Michael Fuller tried to buy a vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven and other items with the bill, and store employees called police after he insisted the $1 million note was real cash.

The largest bill currently in circulation is the $100 bill. The government stopped making bills of up to $10,000 in 1969.

Fuller was charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument. He is in jail on a $17,500 bond, and it isn't clear if he has an attorney. He is scheduled to be in court Tuesday.

@chai2,
What I wondered when I read that is if the poor guy actually thought it was real.

We saw some fake $1,000,000 bills at the Ripley's Believe it or Not Odditorium giftshop, almost got one. They did look pretty real, except for the whole "way too many zeroes" thing.

@Linkat,
To me the funniest part is where he expected to get change.

Well, that would have set him up for life.

@chai2,
Not to mention like a store would have that much change available....

And how the h*ll would he discretely be able to carry all the change out of the store - I don't think it would fit in his wallet.

@Linkat,
Well, nine $100,000 bills don't take up too much space in the old wallet.

I can give you six Woodrow Wilson but you'll have to take the rest in Samuel P. Chases.
