Michael Fuller from Lexington, North Carolina, allegedly tried to go shopping at Walmart with a million dollar bill.
Michael Fuller, 53, insisted his million-dollar note was real when he was trying to buy $476 worth of items, including a vacuum cleaner, and a microwave oven, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
Walmart employees called police after Michael Fuller insisted that the bill was legitimate, and the man was arrested.
The largest bill in circulation is $100. The US government stopped printing notes of up to $10,000 in 1969 because the public rarely used them.
The largest bill ever printed in US was $100,000 which carried a picture of President Woodrow Wilson.
The bills, which were never used by the public, were printed between December 18, 1934 and January 9, 1935, and were used for transferring money between Federal Reserve banks.
Michael Fuller was charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument.
The man 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.
