Police: Customer Tries To Use $1 Million Bill At Walmart December 31, 2011  7:46 pm

walmartDo you have change for a million-dollar bill?

Police say a North Carolina man insisted his million-dollar note was real when he was buying $476 worth of items at a Walmart.

Investigators told the Winston-Salem Journal that 53-year-old Michael Fuller tried to buy a vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven and other items. Store employees called police after his insistence that the bill was legit, and Fuller was arrested.

The largest bill in circulation is $100. 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.

$17,500 is nothing if you've got $1,000,000 in your pocket :)

There is a misunderstanding here. With todays Govt debt that's what his 477 dollars is worth. So he has to spend 1 million dollars like Obama to get 477 dollars worth

Did he actually think Walmart was going to give him over $999k in change? If yes, his lawyer will plead insanity. What even semi normal person would think such a thing?

That looks like a Purim Shpil. He thought he is playing Monopoly.
