    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 (http://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.

    He should have tried to buy the vacuum cleaner at Schmopps store. He might have gotten the change back.

    Walmart staff aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer, but they're not that stupid. Some fuckwit tries this every year.

    He sounds like he should be in a mental hospital instead of jail.

    Why the fuck was he arrested? If he tried to pay with a wooden nickle would he be arrested too?

    Exactly. Any 1st year law student could get him off. Any sale is just a simple trade. He was trying to trade a million dollar bill as a piece of "art" for $1,000,000.

    so why is passing counterfeit money, forged checks or forged bonds and stuff illegal? serious question, because your point is valid, especially in this wacky legal environment.
