World’s Richest Man For A Few Minutes: PayPal Accidentally Gave This Guy $92 Quadrillion Then Promptly Took It Back! (Rewind)

For two mind-boggling minutes in 2013, Chris Reynolds was a multi-quadrillionaire. Checking his PayPal statement via email Saturday, Reynolds, a public relations executive, was floored by the amount of money that had suddenly and inexplicably appeared in his account. He had been credited $92,233,720,368,547,800. The Pennsylvania man was — by an astronomical margin — the richest man in the world. When Reynolds logged into his PayPal account, his balance was back to where it was supposed to be: $0.
PayPal admitted that it had wrongly credited Reynolds with the $92 quadrillion. To make amends, the company reportedly offered to donate an undisclosed amount of money to a charity of Reynolds’ choice. Posted By Persist
