JournalNowTalk about leaving the store with a big chunk of change. A Lexington man is accused 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. Store staff called police.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. The largest note ever printed was the $100,000 bill, which featured President Woodrow Wilson. The bills, which were not available to the public, were printed from Dec. 18, 1934, through Jan. 9, 1935, and were used for transactions between Federal Reserve banks. Fuller was being held Friday night in the Davidson County Jail with bond set at $17,500. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
Quality over quantity every time. One really hot drop dead gorgeous girl over 100 fat chicks. One Lawry’s prime rib over ten Sizzler’s T-Bone Steaks. One loyal, trustworthy, rich, honest friend over five thousand facebook friends you don’t know. One Lebron James over 13 Lakers. I mean the list goes on and on. Quality is always better than quantity. Well not in this case. A million dollar bill is certainly not better than one million one dollar bills. Not unless your name is Michael Anthony Fuller. Can’t wrap my mind around the fact that there’s people stupid enough to think shit like this works. That’s what I thought til I saw a picture of the guy. Makes perfect sense now. In his state of mind, this is a genius move. Crackheads never think like we do. They wear foil hats to protect their thoughts from the government. They live in their own world and in Fuller’s world, million dollar bills are real. Kind of a genius move to try this at a Walmart too. Most probable place to give you change for a million dollar bill.
