This mistake was made in May 2021 by an employee of Crypto.com. This employee had typed the customer's account number instead of typing the amount in the payment amount field. The company came to know about this employee's mistake after 7 months in the audit in December 2021. The name of the Australian woman to whom the company was to refund is Thewamanogiri Manival.
According to reports, this firm doing business in Australia under the name of Foris GFS had to return 100 Australian dollars to Manival's account due to a payment failure. But, instead, the company mistakenly transferred 10.5 million Australian dollars to Manival's account.
Thevamanogiri Manival was shocked and very happy with the sudden arrival of Rs 57 crore in her account. But, he did not inform about this to anyone. According to reports, with a portion of this money, Manival bought a 4-bedroom luxury home in the posh Crazyburn area of North Melbourne for around Rs 8 crore (Aus$1.35 million).
Manival took this house in the name of his sister living in Malaysia. Apart from this, Manival also spent the remaining 50 crores on many things.
However, when the company came to know of the fund transfer mistake, they filed a case against the woman and her sister Thilagavati Gangadori in the Victorian Supreme Court of Australia. The firm got an order from the court to freeze its accounts of Manivel. But, this woman had already spent a major part of the amount in the account.
The firm again approached the court, on which it got an order to freeze the accounts in which Manivel had transferred the money.
After this, the court sent several notices to Manivel to return the money. According to reports, the Victorian court, in this case, passed a default judgment for Manivel's sister. It ordered that Gangadori must sell his property and return the money to the crypto trading firm at the earliest. Along with this, he will have to pay about 22 lakh rupees ($ 27,369.64) as interest.
After this decision of the court, Manival and Gangadori have started taking legal advice from their lawyers and are trying to avoid this trouble.
