$92 quadrillion accidentally given to PayPal customer

July 18, 2013

When Chris Reynolds opened up his monthly e-mail statement from Paypal, it said he had more than $92 quadrillion in his account! Obviously it was a mistake.

Paypal quickly realized the error and fixed it. Reynolds says when he logged back in his account balance was $0, the correct amount.

Paypal apologized and offered to donate an unspecified amount of money to a cause of Reynolds' choice. When asked what he would do if he really did have that money, Reynolds said he would probably offer to pay down the national debt.
