US PR exec accidentally credited $92 quadrillion by PayPal



MANILA, Philippines – A man in the United States was accidentally credited $92 quadrillion in his online PayPal account, a CNN news report said Thursday.

Chris Reynolds, a PR executive who sells auto parts in online marketplace eBay, saw the $92,233,720,368,547,800 credit in his emailed statement of account for the month of June from PayPal.

When he checked his account online, the balance was brought back to $0, the correct amount.

PayPal had already apologized to Reynolds for the error.

The $92 quadrillion would have made Reynolds richer than Forbes number 1 richest man on Earth Mexican telecom mogul Carlos Slim, whose wealth stands at $73 billion, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who is number two on the list with $67 billion. Matikas Santos

    Did paypal accidently enter into online adult in June without telling their shareholders or institutional investors? What was the board of ebay thinking? If you look at the board members they look the type to get their hands dirty with this not to mention the clear risks to their stock.

      I guess they plan on hiding it in some dark corner…like the rest of us. But, of course, we aren’t Paypal.

      We may be afraid of our girlfriend finding out but they have to be afraid of institutional investors who are banned from holding shares in companies that work with “adult content”.
