    Paypal accidentely deposits 92 Quadrillion dollars into man's account

    Talk about coming into a fortune! lol

    US man becomes instant quadrillionaire



    A US man was briefly the richest person in the world after a Paypal error saw a 17-figure sum deposited into his account.
    Play Video. Delaware resident Chris Reynolds received an email from the online money transfer company last Friday saying his account balance was $92,233,720,368,547,800, Philly.com reports. The deposit would have seen him become an overnight quadrillionaire with a wealth far eclipsing the world’s richest man, Bill Gates, whose personal fortune is approximately $73.9 billion.

    "At first I thought I owed quadrillions. It was quite a big surprise," Mr Reynolds told the newspaper.
    Unfortunately for the 56-year-old father of three, his extravagant fortune was short lived with Paypal quickly correcting his balance to zero.
    Mr Reynolds said if he were allowed to keep the money he would "pay the national debt down" and buy the Phillies baseball team, "If I could get a good price".
    Despite losing the money the temporary windfall left Mr Reynolds feeling charitable, prompting him to donate $30 to a local political party.

    I saw a pic of that statement, and it had a minus sign next to the "$92,233,720,368,547,800." Doesn't that mean he looked to be in MAJOR debt instead? *scratches head*
