Wacky News: Man Charged with Trying to Use a Fake 1 Million Dollar Bill

This made me shake my head and say, "are you kidding me!?"

Recent reports say a Kentucky man walked into a Walmart, purchased some items totaling to $476. He then walked up to the register and when trying to pay he took out a $1 million bill and tried to pay with it.

After the cashier chuckled and told the man he couldn't use the bill, he gave her a hard time, insisting the bill was real. 

According to reports:

"The man was then charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument, which are both felonies. On a warrant for the man’s arrest, the police officer who responded to the call wrote, “There is no such thing,” in reference to the million-dollar bill. And the man was held for a night in jail with his bond set at $17,500..."

This is too funny! Did this man really think he could get away with a fake $1 million bill! If I was the cashier I would have cracked up too. At least try and make fake twenties, not that I'm condoning this type of behavior but c'mon man!

  1. LOL such a dummy! I agree, at least try and get away with fake 20s. I don't even think I would convict him, I would just laugh because there is no way he really thought he was going to get away with this.
