Man Receives Over $250,000 From Google Without Working For The Company, Begs To Return It

Reports have indicated that Google mistakenly paid a man the sum of $250,000 without any detailed work for the company.

The recipient of the payment, a man identified as Sam Curry, whose bio describes him as a hacker, bug bounty hunter, and Staff Security Engineer, described the payment as baffling on his verified Twitter handle, @samwyco.

He explained that it’s been 3 weeks since he received the payment and Google has not made any move to rectify the situation.

Sam tweeted on September 14; “It’s been a little over 3 weeks since Google randomly sent me $249,999 and I still haven’t heard anything on the support ticket.

“It’s been a little over 3 weeks since Google randomly sent me $249,999 and I still haven’t heard anything on the support ticket. Is there any way we could get in touch @Google?

“Is there any way we could get in touch @Google?”

“It’s OK if you don’t want it back.”

Google, in an email to CNN has also announced that all efforts are being made to get the money back and appreciated Curry for informing them about the error.

“Our team recently made a payment to the wrong party as the result of human error.

“We appreciate that it was quickly communicated to us by the impacted partner, and we are working to correct it.”
