Crypto.com accidentally sent a woman $10.5 million rather than $100, per a legal document.

According to a default judgment released on Friday in the Supreme Court of Victoria, Crypto.com made the mistaken payment in May 2021 when it was supposed to pay Thevamanogari Manivel $100, but instead entered the wrong account number into the payment amount field.

Manivel, therefore, received $10,474,143.00 from Crypto.com by mistake. It was only noticed seven months later after carrying out an audit, per the judgment.

Crypto.com then launched legal action against Manivel and her sister Thilagavathy Gangadory, who received some of the $10.5 million payment, the judgment said.
