Cops: Man tried to use $1M bill at NC Walmart
The Associated Press

LEXINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Do 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 ( bit.ly/u7ZrEN) 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.

For a Million you'de think he'd have a great attorney.

That would be the store I would try to pass a bogus $1 million dollar bill at. I am surprised he didn't get away with it.

I saw a 1.000 once that I was told was used for bank-to-bank hard currency exchanges-
I believe it was real, but I have been fooled before.

I was also -personally- at a BNY branch in Rye, NY quite a ways back, and overheard a bank manager telling somebody that they could not cash a check for FOUR MILLION dollars because the bank does not keep that much money on hand. I noddeed at my banker and said "That must be one hell of a party!"

And as an aside, all the very large denominations in the past were issued for bank transfers.  $10k or 100k was a lot of money when gold was $35 an ounce.

He didn't dress the part. If he had just worn spandex, no one would have thought twice!!!

I had a few $1,000 notes in my hands many years ago going with my uncle to buy a car... never saw any again.
