A man has been accused of attempting to pass a $360 billion check, which he claims was given to him by his girlfriend’s mother to start a record business, Fort Worth police said.

Charles Ray Fuller, 21, of Crowley, was arrested April 22 on an accusation of forgery, police said.

Police responded to a report of a man attempting to pass the check about 4 p.m. that day at the Chase bank in the 8600 block of South Hulen Street, Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson said.

The personal check was not made out to Fuller and when the bank contacted the check owner, the woman said she did not write a check for $360 billion.

Hmm. I wonder how much 360Bn would weigh? And, did he think any bank on earth would just have that much cash?

An inauspicious beginning to his record company career.


  1. Oh dear….

  2. I guess he never watched “Office Space”. If your gonna steal money, you do it in small amounts to keep under the radar. Not that I am an expert or anything. tehe.

  3. Oh my goodness! This sounds like another nominee for the receipt of The Darwin Award! Did he perhaps do it just to see what would happen? Did he really think it all the way through? Did he ever stop to think “hey, 360Bn is alot of money, maybe a little less would be more practical” Did he bring a security team and lots of people with handcuff suicases? How did he expect to actually carry off all of that money? Golly, how some people are! I honestly do think that this might be the dumbest criminal ever.

  4. No idea says:

    No doubt he is dumb, but i think his 8th grade education is what got in the way: he just kept on adding zeros to make sure he would get “a lot of money”.
