A Pennsylvania man was made a quadrillionaire through a PayPal error.
Chris Reynolds of Delaware Co., Penn., a regular eBay buyer and seller, was shocked when he saw his monthly PayPal balance was $92,233,720,368,547,800 or $92 quadrillion. When Reynolds, who buys and sells car parts and other items online, checked his account directly, the balance was back to zero.
"I'm just feeling like a million bucks. At first I thought that I owed quadrillions. It was quite a big surprise" Chris Reynolds, PayPal quadrillionaire
PayPal hasn't commented, in line with its policy against discussing individual accounts, but it seems unlikely Reynolds will be able to keep the money. If he had that sum, he said, "I would pay the national debt down first. Then I would buy the Phillies, if I could get a great price."
