Mr Reynolds, from Delaware County became the worlds first QUADRILLIONAIRE for a short period when PayPal deposited $92,233,720,368,547,800 into his account.

What would you guys do, keep quiet spending some money and hope paypal don't notice, try to transfer a few million to another country ( not billions because that would raise some eyebrows) or would you tell paypal rightway.

PayPal had removed the money before he logged in

As a regular PayPal customer, Chris Reynolds spends no more than $100 a month. So when the 56-year-old checked his balance with the online money-transfer company recently, it was something of a surprise for him to be told he was a quadrillionaire - making him the world's richest man. Mr Reynolds, from Delaware County, opened his monthly-statement by email on Friday to discover that his balance was a whopping $92,233,720,368,547,800

Money is an illusion. Just numbers on a paper or a screen.

And all of our governments and banks are working hard on it to become even more of a fata morgana.

Stupid Paypal, what were they thinking?

Only the "Federal Reserve" is allowed to create "money" out of nothing.

Lol, this should be interesting for PayPal to explain. That amount doesn't exist even if you factor in all possible global assets, right?

That's a hell of a computational glitch either way.

Edit: LMAO, told my husband about this. He said, and I quote, "I'd build the Death Star!!"
