                 Donald Trump cashed a check for 13 cents! 
                            

Spy magazine, decided to hold a little competition to see who exactly the cheapest, American, 'zillionaires' are. The competition consisted of Spy created a fake, but totally legal, company called the National Refund Clearinghouse.

At first, the company sent out checks of $1.11 to 58 well known millionaires. Of the 58 people that were sent checks, 26 people, including Donald Trump, Cher, Kurt Vonnegut, cashed the checks. Some of the people that DIDN'T cash the checks include Billy Joel, Woody Allen, and Dustin Hoffman.

In the second round, the millionaires received a second check for $0.64 in order to cover a 'computer error'. Only 13 people cashed this check, including Donald Trump and Adnan Khashoggi. - both well known billionaires.

In the final round, the last 13 competitors were sent a check of $0.13 and only two people cashed this tiny, insignificant check. One was Donald Trump, and the other was Adnan Khashoggi.

Also, I'm sure he doesn't open his own mail. His assistant/secretary was probably instructed to deposit all checks accordingly.
