    Over the past few months Paypal has revealed some disturbing practices in restricting access to accounts for fear of fraudulent activity despite none being evident. Now in an error so staggering that it equates to more than 5,500 times the debt of the United States government Paypal had seemingly decided to make some poor unfortunate pay.....to the tune of $-92,233,720,368,547,800!!!

    Bizarrely some places are reporting this as a gift of said trillion dollar figure (the clue is in the minus at the front...) which would have made made Mr. Reynolds' bank balance more than 1.26 million times greater than the fortune of the world's richest person.

    What does this teach us? Always keep a buffer of money in your paypal balance of 93 trillion just in case of error.
