‘A million times richer’
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. Oh, if only.
‘Obviously and error’
So he logged online, and reality bit back. His account balance read $0. The correct amount. PayPal admitted the error and offered to donate an unspecified amount of money to a cause of Reynolds’ choice.
“This is obviously an error and we appreciate that Mr. Reynolds understood this was the case,” PayPal said in a statement.
Before this incident, the most Reynolds ever made on PayPal was “a little over $1,000″ selling a set of vintage BMW tires on eBay.
