Trying to cash a check for $360 billion

The most successful criminals are the ones who are never detected, and the most seemingly obvious way to do this is in way that seems like normal behaviour; don't be too flashy and don't ask for outrageous things. Hence, for example, people who try to steal from banks find manipulating the system a much less detectable method rather than taking a gun and trying to hold up the teller. Somebody should try telling all this to this gentleman who tried to present a forged check, not for a figure like $1,000 dollars but for the figure of $360 billion.

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, authorities said. Tellers at the Fort Worth bank were immediately suspicious — perhaps the 10 zeros on a personal check tipped them off, according to investigators.
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, according to police. In addition to forgery, Fuller was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon and possessing marijuana, Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson said.

This guy belongs in a special class; not only did he try to rip-off the mother of his girlfriend, he did so for an amount that the bank could not possibly fulfill and that the lady's account would not have. Additionally, he was actually carrying both a weapon and marijuana !
