Agency Report


The largest search engine, Google has wrongly paid a man almost $250,000 without any striking a deal of work with the company.


The man identified as Sam Curry, a staff member of a cryptocurrency company, Yuga Labs, described the payment as baffling on his verified Twitter handle, @samwyco on Tuesday.


Sam tweeted, “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,” wrote Curry.



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


“It’s OK if you don’t want it back,” he added.


Meanwhile, Google said it is working to get the money back.


“Our team recently made a payment to the wrong party as the result of human error,” wrote a Google spokesperson in an email to CNN.


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