    I haven't seen anyone mention this yet.

    Code:
    http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/17/tech/paypal-error/index.html?iref=allsearch
    Exert:
    When Chris Reynolds opened his June PayPal e-mail statement, something was off.
    The Pennsylvania PR executive's account balance had swelled to a whopping $92,233,720,368,547,800.
    That's $92 QUADRILLION (and change).
    Money that would make Reynolds -- who also sells auto parts on eBay in his spare time -- the richest man in the world by a long shot.
    Rich, as in more than a million times richer than Mexican telecom mogul Carlos Slim. And he's worth $67 billion.



    Thanks & Enjoy the share... and imagine... what if...


    PS - I realize that many of you can doctor the screen but this was an emailed statement.

    If PayPal made any error with me it probably would have a - behind the digits.
    They said they would donate money to a cause he supported. Does Amazon take donations ;D

    Cheers!

    These two comments address that:

    Actually, the screencap is his Paypal Account Statement. It's just like a bank statement that shows your beginning and ending balance for the month. The - sign in front of the 92 quadrillion shows that Paypal took the money that they credited to him back.






    You misunderstand the way statements work. If he has a POSITIVE balance, that means he owes them that much money. A NEGATIVE balance (what shows on that statement) would mean they owe him money. Anyone with a credit card would be familiar with that language.

    If it was me, I would withdraw just $100k instantly or maybe $1m. Maybe like this I would be lucky enough to keep that amount. :p

    There's no way you would be able to keep any sum of money withdrawn against a mistaken balance, but it's fun to think about :)

    That's what happens when someone uses a poor title. I searched for "quadrillion" thinking that would pull any post about it and it did not come up and then I made my post. I did it again and found that someone posted the same thing and didn't even take time to search if one already existed.
