Google Pay Glitch
Google Pay users received additional funds on transactions between $10 and $1000. The company instantly detected the glitch and reversed the credited amount, but some users transferred or used that amount. In this case, users use or transfer that amount, but Google said that amount belongs to the users and no further action is needed.
A Journalist, Mishaal Rahman, shared his excitement on Twitter and said Google Pay is randomly giving money to users. When I opened the rewards section, I got $46 in rewards for dogfooding the Google Pay.
He also guides users to check the reward if they also received it. He guides in his tweets, opens Google Pay App, swipes to the deals sections, and checks if there is any reward on the top. Later, he tweeted this was an error and that the money would sit in his account for now.
Elon Musk also reacted as ‘Noice’ to the news on Twitter. According to the reports, the company has reversed all the error payments, which was possible.

The journalist shared his email received from Google Pay on Twitter. The company mailed him for mistakenly credited funds to his account. The issue has been solved, and the funds will be reversed soon. However, for those who spent or transferred the money. Google stated it was yours if we could not reverse the money, and no action was required.
