What was he thinking? A Lebanese man in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysian was a major tipper and a real fat cat. He had bundles of U.S. currency of $1 million in $100,000 and $500 notes. But, there is no such U.S. $500 dollar. All the U.S. currency was fake.

What tipped off the police was that he left a tip for a housekeeper in the hotel with a $500 note. When the housekeeper tried to convert it to local currency at a moneychanger, the housekeeper learned it was counterfeit.

The man was arrested and could face up to ten years in jail. This guy is a two-time loser. In 2005, he was charged with cheating over the sale of office supplies. Cheating or fraud carries a maximum penalty of five years.

Just an FYI for would be criminals, the largest U.S. note ever printed was a special edition one for $100,000 in 1934. Bills of $500 were last printed in 1945 and are now no longer in wide circulation according to the U.S. Treasury Department.
