Pittsburgh man with one million dollar bill

How stupid could you be - stupid enough to ask for a change for $1 million bill at a grocery store.

Pittsburgh man with one million dollar bill An unidentified Pittsburgh man went into a rage-rant at a local grocery store, when he attempted to pay with one million dollar bill at the Giant Eagle, but the cashier refused to accept the "tender". The bill was, of course, fake. The Treasury has never printed one million dollar bill and probably never will, besides the fact that you won't find such a large amount of cash in any bank branch throughout the country, not to mention a grocery store. But stupid is what stupid does and the one million dollar bill was quickly arrested. He carried no ID on him, and refused to tell the police his name, but this will not save him from being charged with felony.

 Currently in circulation the highest dollar bill is with a face value of $100, although the largest denomination of currency ever printed was the $100,000 Series 1934 Gold Certificate featuring the portrait of President Wilson, but never released for public circulation, only for official transactions between Federal Reserve Banks. Currency in denominations of $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 were pulled out of distribution in 1969, however, these notes are legal tender and may still be found in circulation today. According to the U.S. Treasury, the most common "one million dollar bill" is a nonnegotiable platinum certificates known as a "One Million Dollar Special Issue", originally sold by a Canadian firm for $1.00 each as a collectible item and are not redeemable.
