A man in the US got a lot of money from Google, almost $250,000, even though he doesn't work for Google. His name is Sam Curry, and he works for a company called Yuga Labs. He tried to tell Google about the mistake, but they didn't reply to him. Curry said it was okay if Google didn't want the money back. He does work to help companies like Google find problems in their computer programs. But he was surprised why Google would send him so much money. Curry didn't spend any of it; he kept it in his account, just in case Google realized the mistake and wanted it back. If Google didn't reply soon, he might have to move the money to another account to avoid paying taxes on it.
