Google sends $250,000 to a hacker by mistake and takes a month to ask for it back

Sam Curry almost had to beg the company to get up the nerve to get his quarter million back.

Imagine that you wake up on a Tuesday and have a $250,000 income made by “Google Llc Edi Pymnts”; imagine that you write to the company and not only does it not respond, but until you post it on Twitter, the one in Mountain View doesn’t seem to want to answer. That’s what happened to Sam Currya security engineer working at Yuga Labs who openly calls himself a hacker.

Curry didn’t touch a penny and he prepared to return it very willingly for when Google asked for it back, even if it was a month after the “scare” but to avoid having to pay the corresponding taxes on such a sum, he had to transfer it to another account. Normally, the engineer is busy being a bounty hunter looking for bugs for organizations of all kinds, including Google, but I couldn’t find any connection between that job and $250,000.

“Our team made a payment to the wrong person due to human error“A Google spokesperson told NPR: “We appreciate that it was brought to our attention quickly and we are working to correct it.” What would you do in such a situation? Furthermore, what would you do in a pre-emptive attack by the USSR? Jokes aside, just a month ago the Crypto.com exchange house mistakenly transferred 7 million dollars instead of 70 to a client, and in that case Thevamanogari Mannivel (which is what the aforementioned was called) was not so willing to return the accidental income.
