PayPal’s $92 Quadrillion mistake

Online payments specialist PayPal have come out and admitted that they managed to credit one of their users accounts by $92,233,720,368,547,800 (approximately $92 quadrillion or £60 quadrillion).

The user in question was Chris Reynolds, 56, from Pennsylvania, who found the error on his monthly statement.

“This was obviously an error and we appreciate that Mr Reynolds understands this was the case,” PayPal said in a statement to the BBC, having quickly recognised the error and returned Mr Reynolds account to zero.

Mr Reynolds told the Philadelphia Daily News that the amount on the statement was “quite a surprise”.
