Hey Breet Gang,
How’s it going?
Friday is steady approaching (yay 🕺🏼), and it’s about time for a #CryptoStory from Breet!
You remember those stories we were told as kids — if you see money on the road, don’t pick it?
Before you turn into yam or disappear into another realm? 😁
Looks like crazy things are happening even when the money finds its way into your bank account o.
One day in May, 2021, a woman in Melbourne, Australia requested for a refund of $100 from Crypto.com.
But somehow, while processing the refund, $10.5 million AUD was accidentally sent to her — na wa for financial personnel wey no sabi work sha 🌚
Now, here’s the ridiculous part — no one noticed this error until 7 months later, in late December 2021, during a company audit!
Unfortunately, money-miss-road-millionaire had already spent a bulk of the money; she’d sent a chunk to her daughter, and even bought a nice house as per Odogwu! 💵
But Crypto.com wasn’t having it, and they’ve gone ahead to sue.
Just imagine having to deal with a lawsuit for a mistake that wasn’t even your fault in the first place – God save us from long-throat o 🤲
The case first appeared in court in May 2022 (a whole year later!), where judge Elliott J ruled that the house must be sold and the accidentally transferred funds be sent back, with 10% interest and legal fees on top! 😳
Apparently, this case is far from over, and it’s set to return to court next month — October 2022.
How do you think this would end?
I guess time will tell, but may trouble not come looking for you and I oh, and may we not be tempted with wetin pass us 🤲🏻
Until next time, be good!
