Student returns check for a half-billion dollars

Let's face it: We could all imagine what to do with a little extra cash. But when Allen Smith received his monthly Veterans Affairs dependency check, it contained an unimaginable amount. Instead of the usual $650, it was made out for a half-billion dollars. Billion.
The 22-year-old receives a dependency check from the Department of the Treasury to help with college expenses, because his father served in the U.S. Air Force. It's just usually not that much.
Still, that's a lot of textbooks.
Smith's mother, Patricia Attwood Smith, told WTVM, "He immediately, immediately went to the VA officer at Fort Benning ... (and) turned in the check." She added she is proud of her son and knows his father is smiling down on him.
So where does the $690,000,000 actually belong? That remains a mystery.
Smith was told the check could have been a misprint or the office could have been hacked. The VA inspector general a.ssured Attwood Smith that the check will get back to where it belongs.

@ n*ggas thinking it would be like cashing their sh*tty McDonald's check that gets deposited the next day. That check would have been scrutinized in the form of investigations by banks, the federal government, customs, etc and a ton of other things before dude could receive that money. And since it would be immediately determined the check was invalid then the check would be destroyed and the FBI would conduct a closing investigation to determine whether or not it was fraud (which it wasn't). So long story short, he did what he should have

y'all can miss me with that i wouldve kept it rhetoric. only n*gga that made sense was the 1st post with the swiss acct or even in the cayman islands. any US bank transferring any amount over 10 g's gets reported. half a billie, ya think that won't raise a flag?
