Man accidentally receives payment of Rs 1.9 Crores from Google and searches internet for answer

Mr. Curry spent no money and waited for Google to collect the money.

Sam Curry, a staff security engineer at Yuga Labs in Metro Omaha, USA, took to Twitter when he received an unexpected $250,000 from Google in his account. Mr Curry shared a message on Twitter on Wednesday and wrote: “It’s been just over 3 weeks since Google sent me a random $249,999 and I still haven’t heard anything about the support ticket. Y is there a way to get in touch with google? (it’s okay if you don’t want it back…)”

According to a report by Newsweekhe sometimes works as bug bounty hunters and helps companies like Google find bugs in their software. NPR in an interview that he only kept the money in case Google sought it back, but was free to use it. He added that if Google doesn’t get back to him right away, he might have to transfer the money to another account to avoid paying taxes on it.

A Google spokesperson said NPR“Our team recently made a payment to the wrong party due to human error. We appreciate that it was quickly communicated to us by the affected partner, and we are working to correct it.”

It should be noted that the money had been in Mr. Curry’s account for more than 3 weeks, but he did not spend any amount and waited for Google to collect the money. Mr. Curry’s guess was correct, Google paid the money by accident.

The company intended to collect the money, the spokesperson added.

Curry said he was curious how often something similar happens at Google as well as what procedures are in place to look for similar failures. He said he still had money in his account Thursday afternoon.
