The Plan Is So Crazy That It Just Might Work


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 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.

I'm dying to see a mugshot of this guy, but I can't find one. Any man who can stand at a counter and "insist" that a million dollar bill is real, has got to have eyes like Charlie Manson.

But, you know, there was a chance he could have pulled this off. I have this vision of some part-time Walmart clerk just counting out change in the amount of $999,524 and then Fuller just walking off with the cash into the parking lot like he just pulled off Ocean's 11.

And he also has something in common with Sam Hurd and his desire to be a big time drug dealer: If you are going to go, go large.

And my barber gripes when I give him anything bigger than $20. Next trip I be sure to tell him how lucky he is I didn't haul out the REALLY big bill.

I tried to pay with a $2 bill at Taco Bell once, and got arrested.

"$17,500 to make bail? No prob...I got that much on me right now. I've been holding on to these two $10,000 bills since 1969. Now if you would just give me my 2,500 in change - small bills only, please! - I'll be on my way"

Every couple of years you hear about some goofball trying to pull this stunt, usually at a Walmarts. It routinely involves a 10,000 or 100,000 bill. This guy really was ambitious. Easy to spot the fake, though. The $1M bill has got Trump's portrait on it!

I got me a 1,000,000 bill, yes sir, I do.

Of course, it's stuck between two plexiglass plates but, it's 1,000,000 bill and that's what matters.

I been saving it for an early retirement.

I read that the reason bills larger than $100s are no longer in circulation is because it made it too easy to carry large sums of money out of the country without the government's knowledge.

Any comments?

Perhaps he had just read Mark Twain's short story, "The Million Pound Bank Note." It was made into a movie in
1954 starring Gregory Peck. Interesting read.

He should have known that no Wal-Mart cashier knows how to make that much change...

I agree. Darkies don't understand cash. Just Lone Star Cards and vouchers for free (healthcare, housing, food, etc...)
