According to the Winston-Salem Journal:
A Lexington man is accused [of] trying to use a fake $1 million bill to pay for his purchases at a Walmart.
Michael Anthony Fuller, 53, of 3 Parker St., walked into the Walmart on Lowes Boulevard in Lexington on Nov. 17. He shopped for a while, picking up a vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven and other merchandise, totaling $476, an arrest warrant says.
When he got to the register, Fuller gave the cashier the phony bill, saying that it was real.
Fuller was later charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument, both felonies, court records show.
A warrant says of the fake million-dollar bill: “There is no such thing.”
The largest bill in circulation is a $100 bill. In 1969, federal officials discontinued the use of $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 bills because of lack of public use.
Sources are reporting that Fuller is now a free man. His wife came to bail him out with a trillion dollar check before she fixed the deficit.
