ChatGPT helps CEO ‘find unclaimed money’; here’s what the AI bot did


Since its public release, the AI-powered ChatGPT has been making headlines for its wide range of applications, from problem-solving to code generation. Recently, it has helped a US-based CEO to locate and claim his unclaimed funds. Joshua Browder, the CEO of DoNotPay, a legal services chatbot, took to Twitter to share his experience. With the help of ChatGPT’s browsing extension, Browder was able to find and claim $210 from the California Government within minutes, as shown in his conversation screengrab.

After providing his personal information, such as his name, place of birth, and date of birth, to the chatbot, Browder requested assistance in finding unclaimed funds by asking, ‘Can you find me some money?’ ChatGPT swiftly responded with information regarding his unclaimed money.

Browder explained that ChatGPT initially visited an obscure government website called the ‘California State Controller,’ which holds unclaimed refunds from companies that do not contact their owners. The chatbot then provided step-by-step instructions on how to claim the money. However, since ChatGPT is an AI model, it was unable to complete the ‘reCAPTCHA verification’ required by the website, despite gaining access to it.

Browder followed ChatGPT’s instructions and successfully discovered his unclaimed overpayments and refunds of $14.01 and $195.66 from two companies. He subsequently claimed the amount and received a total of $209.67. Browder shared that it was only the captcha that prevented the chatbot from completing the process autonomously.
