    $360 Billion Dollar Check

    What an idiot!

    http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5h...EIsiAD90D6IP80

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Charles Ray Fuller must have been planning one big record company. The 21-year-old North Texas man was arrested last week for trying to cash a $360 billion check, saying he wanted to start a record business. Tellers at the Fort Worth bank were immediately suspicious perhaps the 10 zeros on a personal check tipped them off.

    Fuller, of suburban Crowley, was arrested on a forgery charge. He was released after posting $3,750 bail.

    Fuller said his girlfriend's mother gave him the check to start a record business. But bank employees who contacted the account's owner said the woman told them she did not give him permission to take or cash the check.

    Hmmm.. my bank asked for a few days advance notice to withdraw $3000 cash from my checking account. He should have given notice first to avoid suspicion. Just kidding. What a moron.

    If I'm reading this website correctly, his check was about equal to the GNP of Taiwan!

    Please tell me he wasn't surprised when they arrested him, I'd like to think he at least had an inkling that this stupid plan wasn't going to go off without a hitch...
    Just thinkin' out loud....

    I guess this is the mentality you have when you drop out of school. I'm only guessing about his education, but it's obvious the lights are out in the attic.

    I'd like to think that, too. No one can be that dumb.
