Last year in May, cryptocurrency platform Crypto.com accidentally transferred $10.5 million to an Australian woman while processing a $100 refund and only noticed her mistake seven days later. months later. It was not until December 2021 that the company in question discovered that it had accidentally transferred the fortune.
A Cryto.com employee was actually supposed to reimburse this Australian woman one hundred dollars. But due to a typing error, the employee would have sent more than ten million to his account.
When the company became aware of the pot of roses, it took legal action and obtained a freezing of the account in question. In the meantime, most of the money had already been transferred to other accounts, which were then frozen.
Attempts to serve the lady with the freezing orders failed, as she never responded to emails from Crypto.com lawyers. The only communication provided to the court was an e-mail response saying, “Well received, thank you.”
During all this time, the Australian has offered a home worth 1.35 million dollars, or 925,000 euros. According to The Guardian, she is now being forced to sell the property as soon as possible, in order to repay Crypto.com. It is also required to repay interest amounting to $27,369.64 and various costs.
