A certain American guy briefly became 17-digits wealthier and became the richest man in the world!
Chris Reynolds became the only quadrillionaire in the word after a Paypal malfunction, crediting him with $92 quadrillion. Mind you, it is one thousand times greater than the GDP of the whole planet!
The 56-year-old Pennsylvanian was credited for $92,233,720,368,547,800 by the online money-transfer firm. It surpassed that of the world’s richest man, the Mexican mogul Carlos Slim who has a net worth of $67 billion.
Reynolds, who is a public relations man, normally uses paypal for small transactions amounting to only $90-$100. He uses it to buy and sell vintage car parts on eBay.
Reynolds then told the reporters, “At first I thought that I owed quadrillions. It was quite a big surprise.”
He also added that if he had that kind of wealth, he would use it to “pay the national debt down first.” He would also buy the Philadelphia Phillies, his favorite team in major league baseball.
His “wealth” only became temporary for when he checked his balance online, it was zero.
