A US bank teller had a million reasons to say no.
Police say Alexander D. Smith tried to open an account with a US$1 million bill (NT$32,300,000) late last month. But there is no such thing as a million dollar bill. The teller refused and called police while Smith started to say bad words to the bank workers, said Lt. Michael Frank, a police officer.
Smith, 31, was charged with causing problems in public. He was also charged with forgery , twice, Frank said.
The other instance of forgery happened earlier. Police say that Smith bought cigarettes from a nearby grocery store with a stolen check.
Smith was being held at the Aiken County jail last week, and bail was set at US$257 (NT$8,300). It's not known if Smith has any more million dollar bills that he can try to use to paybail.(Staff Writer, with AP)
