Following the discovery that $10.5 million had been inadvertently transferred into one of their bank accounts, two ladies from Melbourne have gone on a spending binge.

The Big Accident

When the firm was seeking to complete a refund of merely $100, the funds were inadvertently transferred to Thevamanogari Manivel through one of the major trading platforms for major cryptocurrencies in the world, which is Crypto.com. This occurred back in May 2021.

However, someone typed an account number in the payment box, which resulted in the enormous cash being moved to another account by mistake rather than being refunded.

After realizing it had made a mistake seven months ago, the corporation has now taken legal action against Manivel and her sister Thilagavathy Gangadory.

News Station Made It Viral

2 Australian sisters Manivel Thevamanogari and Gangadory Thevamanogari, mistakenly received an AUD$10.5 million deposit from Crypto.com — a Singaporean cryptocurrency exchange—after the company made a huge mistake of refunding the wrong amount instead of giving an AUD$100 refund, as reported by the news portal 7News.

An employee reportedly put an account number into the payment box, thinking it was the amount of the return. This caused an accidental transfer to occur to the employee’s bank account.

Although this event occurred during the month of May 2021, the error was not found until later in December of 2021, when the company conducted an annual audit and realized this major error.

Following the filing of a case, the Supreme Court of Victoria ruled in favor of the company and recently issued a ruling mandating that the amount be returned to be Crypto.com.

Now the main issue that has been highlighted is that Manivel has already spent around AUD$1.35 million of the amount received to buy a luxurious property in Craigieburn that contains five bedrooms and gift it to her sister.

Crypto.com Took the Legal Route

She was given the order to sell the property and refund the remaining monies, or else she would face the possibility of being charged with contempt of court. October is the month that the case is scheduled to return to court.

In regard to the matter at hand, Justin Lawrence from Henderson and Ball Lawyers stated that there is no doubt that if someone received an unexpected amount in their account which wasn’t supposed to be there in the first place, it is the responsibility of the account holder who received the amount to call the company and inform them of the error that had taken place.

When it comes to crypto transactions, any amount transferred is not refundable unless the receiver agrees to do so.

This is due to the fact that crypto transactions are decentralized and irreversible and cannot be undone unlike centralized financial institutions that have the ability to freeze, rectify such errors made during the transaction process.

A straightforward transaction reversal, on the other hand, would not have been feasible in this scenario because of the fact that the company realized their mistake way too late by which time the amount was already transferred from the initial account into another account after the receipt was issued.
