A Georgia woman must have thought she hit the jackpot when she was issued a check for a $94 million dollar refund. Instead, once she went to cash the check, she was, predictably, arrested.

The New York Daily News reports:

Georgia authorities went to a great deal of trouble to nab a woman who filed a state income tax return for a whopping $94 million.

State revenue agents actually cut a check for $94,323,148 and told Brigitte Jackson to come on down to a Cobb County bank inside a supermarket to cash it.

 And when she arrived and tried to redeem the bogus document, the handcuffs came out, reported WSB-TV.
She has been charged with theft and conspiracy to defraud the state.The woman had claimed $99 million in wages as the basis for the mammoth refund amount, authorities said.Jackson has been charged with theft and conspiracy to defraud the state.
Our question is – how was she planning to transport that much money in cash?
