Incorrect payment of about $250,000 was sent to a security engineer by Google, the engineer stated in a tweet last week.
Sam Curry of Yuga Labs, a security engineer, tweeted from his verified account that the tech firm “randomly” sent him $249,999 “a little over 3 weeks ago.” Curry posted a picture of what looks to be a payment from “Google Llc Edi Pymnts” on September 13 along with the tweet.
“On the support ticket, nothing has happened yet. Is there a method for us to contact @Google? “The developer at the time wrote. If you don’t want it back, that’s fine.
Curry claimed to have gotten in touch with Google and given the money back to the tech firm on Monday, according to a report by FOX Business.
A Google representative informed FOX Business that a recent payment made by their team was made to the incorrect entity due to human error. “We appreciate that the impacted partner swiftly informed us of it.”
“I found the wh
ole thing to be very funny, sad that I had to take it back, and I can’t help but wonder if they would have noticed if I kept it,” she said. Curry uttered.
Alphabet, the parent company of Google, reported second-quarter revenues for 2022 of about $69.69 billion in late July, up from about $61.88 billion during the same period the previous year. Due to this, its net income decreased to $16 billion from $18.5 billion.
