One In A Million

‘ALICE Regina Pike, 35, from Georgia, USA, wanted the American dream. Only having failed to earn enough money for the massive car, the yacht and the surgically-enhanced buttocks, she decided to make some in another way.

Clutching her fake million-dollar note she strode into the Wal-Mart store in Covington ready for some retail therapy. But when she came to pay for $1,671.55 (£915) worth of items, the cashier refused her note. Staff also refused to hand over $998,328.45 (£547,059) in change.

Assistant Police Chief Almond Turner said Pike claimed she believed the notes were real and said they were a gift from her husband.’
