A North Carolina man is scheduled to appear in court today after attempting to pay for $476 worth of items at a local Walmart with a fake $1 million note in November, according to John Hinton at the Winston-Salem Journal (via The Week). Store employees who called the police on 53-year-old Michael Anthony Fueller were immediately suspicious of the counterfeit paper for good reason—the largest bill in circulation today is $100. The highest denomination of currency ever printed was the $100,000, but was not issued to the general public.
Fueller faces felony charges of attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument, reports the Winston-Salem Journal.
