A man in South Carolina tried to open a bank account with a million dollar bill. When the teller refused, the man began to curse at tellers, and was arrested.

A man  in the United Arab Emirates was trying to sell "special banknotes" - one million dollar bills. He told a woman they were used in international currency markets, and if she helped him sell some bills he would give her a 30% cut. He was arrested.

A woman in Georgia tried to pay for her $1,675 worth of Walmart merchandise with a million dollar bill. She told police her estranged husband, who is a coin collector, gave it to her. She thought it was real. She said from jail: “You can’t keep up with the U.S. Treasury.”

Finally, the U.S. Secret Service seized dozens of Christian religious tracts from the evangelical group the Great News Network after a North Carolina resident tried to deposit one in a personal bank account. The tracts were printed to look like million dollar bills.
