New York (CNN) — When Chris Reynolds opened his June PayPal e-mail statement, something was off.
The Pennsylvania PR executive’s account balance had swelled to a whopping $92,233,720,368,547,800.
That’s $92 QUADRILLION (and change).
Money that’d make Reynolds — who also sells auto parts on Ebay in his spare time — the richest man in the world by a long shot.
Rich, as in more than a million times richer than Mexican telecom mogul Carlos Slim. and he’s worth $67 billion!
Oh, if only.
“It’s a curious thing, I don’t know maybe someone was having fun,” Reynolds said.
So he logged online — and reality bit back.
His account balance read $0. The correct amount.
PayPal admitted the error and offered to donate an unspecified amount of money to a cause of Reynolds’ choice.
“This is obviously an error and we appreciate that Mr. Reynolds understood this was the case,” PayPal said in a statement.
So what would the newly minted quadrillionaire have done with the cash?
“I probably would have paid down the national debt,” he said.
Before this incident, the most Reynolds ever made on PayPal was “a little over $1,000″ selling a set of vintage BMW tires on eBay.
