In an unexpected turn of events, a man in the US, Sam Curry, received a substantial payment of nearly $250,000 from Google, a company he does not work for. As a staff security engineer at Yuga Labs, Curry shared the surprising transaction on Twitter, expressing his attempt to contact Google about the unexpected payment. Despite three weeks passing, he received no response from the tech giant. Curry, who occasionally engages in security work for companies, including Google, couldn't fathom why Google would transfer such a significant sum, even if he had previously provided services to them. Suspecting an error, Curry refrained from spending the money, keeping it in his account in case Google requested its return. However, considering the lack of response, he mentioned the possibility of moving the funds to another account to avoid tax implications.
