PayPal accidentally gives man $92 quadrillion

Posted on Wednesday, July 17 2013 @ 10:44:13 CEST by


Yahoo News reports PayPal accidentally put a balance of $92,233,720,368,547,800 in the account of Chris Reynolds, a Pennsylvania-based guy who buys and sells car parts online.
Of course, there’s one major catch: Reynolds never technically was in possession of any of the accidentally credited funds.

"I'm just feeling like a million bucks," Reynolds said when asked about the technical glitch . When Reynolds then went to check his actual funds available on the site, he saw the amount was, in fact, zero.

...

To put the $92 quadrillion number in perspective, it’s 1,300 times greater than the world’s annual gross domestic product of $71.83 trillion.

Reynolds, 56, told the International Business Times that he received a notice from PayPal the next day asking him to verify his credit card information.

"The sad part is that I got word that they still need me to renew the credit card that's attached to this account," he said. "So, even though I have 90 quadrillion dollars, they still don't trust me."
