Man Makes Accidental Purchase of 28 Tesla Vehicles

In life, mistakes seem to be the necessity of man. This defines our existence as a human, even those who claim to be perfectionist can never be utterly infallible. Hence, the accidental purchase of Tesla Vehicles.

We have all made mistakes in life, some of them costly. However, the richer you are there are correspondingly more chances of your mistakes being costlier. This is exactly what a gentleman in Germany realised recently when he “accidentally” ordered 28 Tesla Vehicles worth a total of Dh5.8 million (1.4 million euros).

In the words of a Reddit user with the username ‘Ballon-Man’, his dad wanted to replace their old family car with a brand new Tesla Model 3, encouraged by the cashback incentive to buy an electric car in Germany being doubled during the coronavirus pandemic. However, due to some technical glitch, the purchase order wouldn’t go through and the old gentleman kept trying to get the transaction confirmed several times. After a couple of hours of trying, the purchase was finally confirmed, not once, but for all the 28 attempts he made in that period!

This meant the overall Tesla Vehicles purchase amounted to a whopping Dh5.8 million (1,404,000 euros) along with 2,800 euros in non-refundable deposits.

In what appears to be an unprecedented manner and thankfully for him though, once Tesla was convinced it was a genuine mistake, the company helped him cancel all the orders. They even refunded the 2,800 euros in deposits.

While this is a lesson for all of us to be more careful when making online transactions especially during this “new normal” brought by coronavirus pandemic.
