Police in Nebraska are searching for a man who allegedly tried to open a bank account on Monday using a fake $1 million bill. Staff at the Pinnacle Bank branch in Lincoln said the man strolled in around 9:30 a.m. and presented the bill to a teller. He claimed the bill was real despite several bank employees telling him the opposite. He eventually left with the bogus bill — and without having opened a new account. The bank reported the encounter to the police, and investigators are now reviewing security footage from the bank to try to identify the man. They say that they want to perform a welfare check and determine if he had been the victim of a fraud crime. The U.S. Mint does not print $1 million bills. In fact, the largest bill ever printed for public circulation is the $10,000 bill.
