Another person has been caught trying to pass a fake (ahem, there are no real ones) million dollar bill. This time the idiot in question tried to pass the bill at a bank.
From (our favorite NBC affiliate) NBC Augusta:
The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office arrested an Augusta man who tried to open a bank account with a counterfeit $1,000,000 bill.
Alexander D. Smith is charged with disorderly conduct and forgery.
Investigators say Smith gave the counterfeit bill to a teller at Regions Bank in Clearwater, South Carolina. The employee refused to accept the bill and called the sheriff’s office.
Officers say Smith also purchased several cartons of cigarettes with a stolen check over the weekend.
These fake bills feature a picture of Grover Cleveland, who was once featured on the $1,000 bill. The largest bill currently in circulation is the $100.
