Paypal Accidentally Gives Man $92 Quadrillion by mediachirps(m): 2:31pm On Jul 17, 2013
$92quadrillian is a lot of money. It’s 97,000 times the UK’s national debt, its 92 and 15 zeros, it’s 92,000,000,000,000,000. It’s lot of money.

So when PayPal gave a man from Pennsylvania $92,000,000,000,000,000 you can imagine his (and their) reaction.

With that amount of money he would have been richer than Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg and Larry Page combined. He could have literally bought everything in the world ever and lived off the interest for an eternity.

Sadly it wasn’t to be, what PayPal giveth, PayPal taketh away. Moments later the computer error was fixed and Christopher Reynolds was a lowly 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.’

Oh well Christopher, better luck next time. In the meantime, here’s what you could have won…
WHAT WILL YOU DO IF IT HAPPENS TO BE YOU?

What a mistake! If you were near ATM and you knew you had no cash in the bank or with you. I can simply imagine what you would have done. Its after you withdraw the money that you would ask who sent you money. Yea@You reading. Lol!
