Tesla owner charged $14,186.25 after someone borrowing the car made an accidental purchase
Google’s Director of Product Management was charged $14,100 after someone borrowing the car accidentally bought FSD.
Dominic Preuss, Google’s Director of Product Management, made his feelings very clear on Twitter after he was faced with a $14,186.25 bill as someone borrowing the car had accidentally signed up for Tesla’s advanced driver aids.
According to Preuss, the car didn’t require a password or any form of verification to carry out the transactions. Fortunately, Preuss managed to get a full refund by cancelling the purchase within the “manage upgrades” menu.
Many other Tesla owners have accidentally purchased upgrades for their cars in the past. This is not entirely surprising given how easy it is to make a purchase from the car. Because of this, Tesla owners across the globe are demanding for there to be some form of transaction confirmation to prevent accidental purchases.
