If you’ve been following along with us for the past couple of weeks, you’ve probably noticed that the team at Wanna Get Out Bail Bonds in Oahu has been highlighting a handful of strange crimes. It all started when we were discussing the strangest crimes we had heard about and then decided to do a bit of research. As it turns out, there are some pretty wild stories out there.
In part three of our series, we’ll take a look at a few of the craziest stories yet. Wondering what will make our final cut? Keep reading to find out!
The $360 Billion Check
People trying to cash fraudulent checks is certainly nothing new, although nowadays many of those who would have been committing fraud with checks are trying to steal debit card and credit card numbers. That’s not true of Charles Ray Fuller who was arrested in 2008 for trying to cash a check for $360 billion.
CBS News reports that “Fuller said his girlfriend’s mother gave him the check to start a record business, but bank employees who contacted the account’s owner said the woman told them she did not give him permission to take or cash the check.” At the end of the day, stranger crimes have been committed, but this one is pretty unique in the amount of daring that must have gone into thinking this particular scheme could work.
The Robber Who Was Robbed
Out of all of the strange stories we’ve shared so far, this one just might take the cake. It takes place in Georgia in 2011 and it involves a robbery. WSB-TV reports that a “woman turned the tables on a burglar looting her house when she took his keys and wallet.” Apparently the criminal pulled his vehicle into her driveway. The woman returned home to find an unfamiliar car parked in her driveway.
After a bit of investigation, the woman removed the keys from the ignition and the wallet from between the seats, then headed back to her car and drove a short distance away. When she noticed the would-be robber exiting her home with her belongings, she called the police. The robber attempted to swim across a nearby lake, then broke into another home.
As if that’s not weird enough, he then logged onto Facebook in that home and forgot to logout. Between his car being stranded, the victim having his wallet, and having left particularly interesting evidence on a computer, this thief never stood a chance.
