Hebden Bridge man accidentally receives cheque for more than £2.3 trillion from Northern Powergrid in compensation for Storm Arwen
A spokeswoman for Northern Powergrid said: “We have corrected an administration error that affected a small number of cheques and we are continuing to process the remaining payments as fast as we can.”
What if they sent the payment in crypto ?
We know there is no one control the tokens else the wallet owner, so banks can’t control it or take it back from you
What will you do if one day you wake up and open your wallet and saw few hundreds of BTC or few thousands of ETH or whatever sent to your wallet address ?
We all know that we are poor and can’t have this amount in our wallets, not yet at least

I was one of the Ethereum miners that received a portion of the fee from a user that made a huge mistake last year. Our mining pool requested that miners return as much of their allotted portion of the fee as possible. In the end, I returned my portion, minus gas fee. It was the right thing to do.
Send me millions by mistake, then we talk.
Convert to Monero —> cold storage
Altruism be damned, I’m about to secure the bag.
I’d go back to sleep, since I would’ve won this game called “life”
I pray this does not happen to me
Because I will have a heart attack out of happiness
Monero it and dissapear.
Millions?! If I received 4 bitcoins I’d become a ghost and move to Venezuela.
Hookers and cocaine.
Hookers and blow
Return 98% of it and then quit my fucking job.
I would talk to the manager!
#Sell and drive to my 9-5 slave cage to tell my boss to suck a fat one
I will straight ask in r/CryptoCurrency
I mean, I would be rich, so probably move to a country with no crypto tax or extradition
Hebden Bridge on the news 😁
Convert to MONERO
I was overpaid by my company, early this month. Got a message from my boss, and I asked him to send me the wallet to send the extra token to, which he did, and I sent it back to the wallet.
Hookers for all!
Wake up from the dream
Quit my job
I would return and ask for some money so I can pay my student loan.
Return to sender? Address unknown?
I probably wouldn’t touch it out of fear it’s some scammy airdrop
Lol, you can’t give it back
If it does happen, I guess I’d keep my mouth shut. NO way someone is going to make a mistake like that, see that the address is active, and not use legal/illegal options to track down the receiver.
I’ll return them immediately.
Lmao just kidding , Will probably disappear and go live on a private island.
Finder keeper loser weeper right? Right?
Adopt a: “Sorry, no backsies.” policy.
Millions don’t go as far as they used to, so take some out, invest others, make sure I could live off that money by making it grow
If they sent to an exchange they could contact the exchange
If sent to the right person but wrong amount they could reach out and ask for a return with a % as an incentive, eg keep 10%
If sent to the wrong address, not on an exchange, they’d not know who to contact
trade for shitcoin, post loss porn here, quietly ‘sell low’ and bounceeee
Find a way to return it to its owner
I’d feel better than those thousands of people in 2009 who got this bill:
Send it back.
Everything is traceable.
Launder it like ilya lichtenstein and heather morgan and you’ll get caught.
