Florida Man Tried to Cash a Check for $368 Billion
Jeff Waters, explained to the bank a homeless man named Tito Watts sold him the blank check from U.S. Bank of Idaho that was reportedly issued in the 90s. Waters made the check out to “Cash” and was told by Watts that the check would clear for any amount he wrote it out for if he gave him $100. Waters said he wanted $368 billion to open up an Italian restaurant. Water said: “It’s always been my dream to own the best Italian restaurant in the earth, I’m 10% Italian. Cooking authentic Italian food is in my blood. I had planned to make the restaurant 80 million sq. feet and able to accommodated 30 million eaters at once, plus it was gonna be totally underwater so people could look at sharks while they ate. But the bank wouldn’t give me my money they owed me. Tito said the check was good for any amount I wanted to write it for. So blame Tito, not me. I’m as innocent as a schoolgirl.” When police searched Waters they found both bath salts and Chinese throwing stars on his person. He was arrested for that in addition to forgery. He was later released after posting a $23,000 bail. Get the full story here.
