PayPal Gives Man Quadrillions
If you thought you had 92 quadrillion dollars, what would you do? That’s the question Chris Reynolds of Pennsylvania was about to ask when a PayPal error credited his account with $92,233,720,368,547,800.
But, when he checked his account online, it was back to zero. Still, what would he have done?
“I’m a very responsible guy.” he told the Philadelphia Daily News. “I would pay down the national debt, then I would buy the Phillies, if I could get a good price.”
A PayPal customer for years, he normally uses his account to buy and sell items on EBay. When Reynolds opened his monthly statement, he was shocked. “It was a big surprise.” he said.
