Man Withdraws $125,000 From Bank In $20 Bills

Roger Griffiths decided to withdrawal all the money he had in the bank, which was 190,000 New Zealand dollars -- equivalent to $125,000 US dollars -- in $20 bills.

The artist said he watched as the teller carefully counted out his entire withdrawal -- 9,500 20-dollar bills.

Griffiths says he was unfairly denied the mortgage by the bank despite having the required 20 percent down payment and assets that totaled well over half a million dollars. The bank says it rejected Griffith's application because, as an artist, he didn't have a weekly income.
