    Default PayPal 'credits' US man $92 quadrillion in error

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-23352230

    Online payments broker PayPal has admitted it erroneously credited a man with $92 quadrillion (60 quadrillion).

    Chris Reynolds, 56, of Pennsylvania, found the amount when he opened his monthly statement.

    But the error was quickly recognised and his account had returned to zero by the time he had logged in.

    "This was obviously an error and we appreciate that Mr Reynolds understands this was the case," PayPal said in a statement to the BBC.

    The online money-transfer firm said it would offer to make a donation to a charity of Mr Reynolds' choice.

    The $92,233,720,368,547,800 statement had been "quite a big surprise", Mr Reynolds told the Philadelphia Daily News, which first reported the story.

    That's a Paypal... How about people transfer through the bank..?
    Can they take it back when they realize it..?

    Cool

    I'm sorry for starting this...

    I logged in to eBay to buy an aircraft carrier and a space shuttle but I noted my account was low...

    I deposited it in the wrong place.

    I am appreciative for PP for straightening it all out for me.

    ...hmmm, I wonder if lake Erie is for sale, I could use another pool...
