The man who owned google for a minute would surprise you.
Did you know?
In 2015, a Man named VED SANMAY owned google.com for one minute.
He secured the domain for $12. The search engine giant however paid him $6,006.13 to get it back – a number that spells out google if you ‘squint a little’.
Speaking after his transaction was rumbled by google, Sanmay said, “The domain actually got added to my cart as seen by the green check-box, and the domain got added to my cart”.
‘I was hoping I would get an error sometime, saying transaction didn’t go through, but I was able to complete the purchase, and my credit card was charged’.
If it were you, what would you have done?
