    Talking Man accused of trying to cash check for $360 BILLION

    FORT WORTH -- An aspiring record label owner is singing the blues after he was arrested last week for allegedly trying to pass a $360 billion check at a Fort Worth bank.

    Employees at the Chase Bank at 8601 S. Hulen St. grew suspicious after seeing all those zeroes (10 to be exact) and called the check's owner. The woman said the suspect, Charles Ray Fuller, 21, of Crowley, is her daughter’s boyfriend and that he did not have permission to take the check or cash it.

    Fuller was arrested on suspicion of fraud, along with unlawfully carrying a weapon and possession of marijuana after officers found less than 2 ounces of the drug and a .25-caliber handgun and magazine in his pockets.

    While inside a patrol car, police say Fuller blurted out that he is starting his own record label and had been given the money by his girlfriend’s mother to help him start it.

    Apparently breaking into the music business does not come cheap.
    Luckily for him, bail was a lot less expensive. Fuller was released from Mansfield Jail on Thursday after posting $3,750 bail.



    I just hope they didn't ley him write a check for his bail!

    ... and potheads continue to argue it doesn't affect them.

    Not much of a con artist really. That is approximately 6 times the net worth of the richest man in the world and 3 times the net worth of Exxon. In cash and equivalents Exxon has only $34B.

    And he's trying to convince the bank that his girlfriend's mom has that much in her checking account?

    I wonder if a good defense attorney could get this guy off the hook claiming it can't really be considered fraud if nobody on earth would fall for it.

    Well, a Billion doesn't go as far as it used too.
