NEW YORK - When Mr Chris Reynolds opened his June PayPal e-mail statement, he got a shock.
The 56-year-old Pennsylvania man's account balance had swelled to a whopping US$92,233,720,368,547,800.
That's US$92 quadrillion.
"It's a curious thing. I don't know, maybe someone was having fun," Mr Reynolds said, CNN reported.
So he logged online, and reality bit back. His account balance read US$0. The correct amount.
PayPal admitted it made a mistake and offered to donate an unspecified amount of money to a cause of Mr Reynolds' choice.
"This was obviously an error and we appreciate that Mr Reynolds understands this was the case," the online money-transfer firm said in a statement, according to the BBC.
