$92 Quadrillion: Deposited Into User's PayPal Account!

by at . Comments

Chris Reynolds opened his June PayPal statement a little while ago and could not believe his good fortune. His great fortune, actually.

His ridiculous fortune: the numbers said the Pennsylvania PR executive had a balance of… $92,233,720,368,547,800.

We'll do the math for you: That's over 92 QUADRILLION dollars.

PayPal Error

"It's a curious thing. I don't know, maybe someone was having fun," Reynolds said of the discovery, which would have made him the wealthiest man in the world by a large margin if legitimate.

Unfortunately, when Reynolds checked the actual website, he saw his balance for what it truly is: $0.

PayPal owned up to the mistake and offered to donate an unknown amount to a cause of Reynolds' choosing. So that's almost the same as being a quadrillionaire!

"This is obviously an error and we appreciate that Mr. Reynolds understood this was the case," PayPal said in a statement.
