PayPal Makes Ginormous Mistake, Credits $92 Quadrillion to Man’s Account
A 56-year-old Media, Pennsylvania man named Chris Reynolds probably had to a double-take or two last week when he checked his PayPal account to find $92 quadrillion in it.
Reynolds received a monthly statement from PayPal to find he had more digits than Charlie Sheen’s cell phone. It read $92,233,720,368,547,800. When he logged into his PayPal account, though, the mistake had been fixed and he was back down to zero.
Reynolds had some plans for his financial windfall, jokingly saying, “I’m a very responsible guy. I would pay the national debt down first. Then I would buy the Phillies, if I could get a great price.”
Reynolds said he usually only spends about $100 month on PayPal. A spokesman for the site couldn’t comment on the matter, claiming privacy guidelines.
