PayPal gives bloke $92 quadrillion by accident
PayPal made a boob, giving one fella $92quadrillion by accident. That's $92,000,000,000,000,000. That's a terrifying amount of money.
That amount of money was doled out to Christopher Reynolds, instantly making him more wealthy than Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg and Larry Page combined. That's so much money, he could've swimmed in coins like he was Scrooge McDuck.
However, PayPal soon rectified the error and Reynolds went from being dizzyingly wealthy, and back to being a run-of-the-mill PR executive again.
Speaking to CNN, Mr Reynolds said: "It’s a curious thing; I don’t know maybe someone was having fun."
PayPal admitted: "This is obviously an error and we appreciate that Mr Reynolds understood that this was the case."
If he'd spotted it sooner, he could've bought a gigantic laser gun and held the world to ransom, or paid off the world's debt. Sadly, it wasn't to be.
