Chris Reynolds Made A Quadrillionaire By Paypal Error

Chris Reynolds
If you have a Paypal account you may at times wish that you could one day log in to your account and see a whole lot of money magically appear.

Although that never really happens to anyone, a man name Chris Reynolds from the United States was left shocked after opening his monthly-statement on Paypal and saw that he was an instant quadrillionaire.

When 56-year-old Chris Reynolds, from Delaware County, opened his monthly-statement from Paypal via email, to his surprise, his balance was showing a whopping $92,233,720,368,547,800.

According to reports, Paypal admitted that they erroneously credited Mr. Reynolds the close to 100 quadrillion dollars, but immediately corrected the error, leaving Chris Reynolds with his true balance of zero dollars.

What The Paypal Error Made Chris Reynolds?

Due to the error, Chris Reynolds briefly became the world's richest person. The amount of money that was on his account was 1000 times more than the total combined GDP of the whole world.

In a statement, Mr. Reynolds said that the discovery made him feel like a million bucks, and that it was a quite big surprise. He also said that providing that he truly had that money, the first thing he would do is pay the US national debt down.
