And this guy thought he would get away with this fake bill? Seems rather funny he didn't know one million dollar bills have never been printed. AIKEN, S.C. - A bank teller in Clearwater had a million reasons not to open an account for an Augusta, Ga., man Monday, authorities said. Alexander D. Smith, 31, was charged with disorderly conduct and two counts of forgery after he walked into the bank and tried to open an account by depositing a fake $1 million bill, said Aiken County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Michael Frank. The employee refused to open the account and called police while the man started to curse at bank workers, Frank said. The second forgery charge came after investigators learned Smith bought several cartons of cigarettes from a nearby grocery store with a stolen check, Frank said. "The federal government has never printed a million-dollar bill," Frank said.

wow, chalk another one up for stupid criminals. I just read one the other day about guys who kidnapped a football player, and didn't take his cell phone. then they sent him into the bank alone to take money out. so ofcourse the guy told the bank what was going on and was free.
