The balance of the public relations Executive had risen to the amount of 92,233,720,368,547,800 dollars.
That’s 92,000 billion dollars… and a bit of change.
The money would have made Reynolds (who also sells parts for cars on eBay in his spare time) in the world’s richest man.
In fact, it would be more than one million times richer than the Mexican Tycoon Carlos Slim’s telecommunications, and he has some 67,000 million dollars!
“It is a funny thing, I don’t know, maybe someone did it for fun”, said Reynolds.
So he entered to his account and the reality hit him: your PayPal balance was zero dollars, the correct amount.
PayPal admitted the error and offered to donate a non-specific amount of money to a cause that Reynolds choose.
“This is obviously a mistake and we appreciate that Mr Reynolds understood that this was the case,” PayPal said in a statement.
“I probably would have paid down the national debt,” he said.
And you, what you would have done with so much money?
