In May 2021, Thevamanogari Manivel’s bank account was inflated by a $10 million deposit, when she was only expecting $100, the site reported. MarketWatch.
An employee of Crypto.com accidentally entered an account number in the payment section.
The transaction occurred following a refund requested by Mr.me Manivel, who failed to report the error to Crypto.com and who transferred $10.1 million to another account, said broadcaster 7news, in Australia.
Crypto.com, who made the transfer, only realized their mistake in December 2021. He is now suing the Aussie to get his money back.
Unexpected custodian of several million dollars, the Australian did not skimp on expenses. In fact, she would have already spent $ 1.35 million for a five-bedroom house that she offered to her sister, also targeted by the lawsuit.
Thus, the dream promises to be short-lived for the two sisters. Indeed, an order for the sale of the house would have already been pronounced by the Supreme Court of Victoria, after a partial victory of Crypto.com before the courts, “even if further legal proceedings regarding the situation are planned for October”, reported MarketWatch.
