    [B]Cops: Man tried to buy vacuum, microwave with $1M bill[/B]


    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 [I]Winston-Salem Journal[/I] 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.

    It would be difficult to keep 9,995 $100 bills in the drawer.

    When I worked in a bank just out of college (In Canada) we had a couple of $1000 bills come through the system. Too bad I couldn't afford to buy them back then as I thought to myself..."Self, these are going to be worth some good money from a collector one of these years."
