When Chris Reynolds opened his monthly PayPal statement this month, he was pleasantly surprised to find slightly more in his account than he was expecting. According to the statement, he was suddenly worth $92,233,720,368,547,800.
“Well, initially I was a little jolted because I saw a negative number in front of a lot of digits and I just decided to have a little fun with it,” Reynolds told ABC News, adding that his friends liked the picture of the statement he posted to Facebook.
PayPal quickly recognized their mistake and removed the money from the account. “PayPal was really good by the way,” Reynolds said. “They apologized for any inconvenience.”
And, in addition to the apology, PayPal agreed to make a small donation to charity of Reynolds' choice.
"I'm a very responsible guy," he said. "I would pay the national debt down first. Then I would buy the Phillies, if I could get a great price."
