PayPal makes $92 quadrillion mistake

Posted:

(CHRIS REYNOLDS, CNN) - A Pennsylvania man was briefly the richest man on the planet.

When Chris Reynolds opened up his monthly e-mail statement from PayPal, it said he had more than $92 quadrillion in his account.

Paypal quickly realized the error and fixed it.

Reynolds says when he logged back in, his account balance was zero dollars - 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.
