Thanks A Billion, Buddy

Was It A Wild Goose, Chase Bank?

A Texan man has been arrested for trying to cash a fake cheque at a bank - for $360 billion. Employees at the Chase Bank in Fort Worth grew suspicious and called the account holder. The man was arrested and told police he was starting his own record label and had been given the money by his girlfriend's mother.

FOOTNOTE: Cheques and the city.

Why 360?! Maybe he figured it was a nice round figure.

I would have enjoyed listening in on the phone conversation between the bank and the account holder.

There used to be a column in the dailies that was titled "Only In America...."
This story would be prime meat for it.
