Awkward: to receive 10.000 mail in your Hotmail because of Google

Imagine opening up your mail inbox and see suddenly more than 10.000 mail in it! Yes, that's what happened to mr. David Peck a US citizen who had the unfortunate chance to be a victim of a Google problem. Until some hours ago, if you were to search "gmail" in Google, you would get the following result, offering 10GB of storage. If you were to click on this link a new window would open sending a mail to mr. Pecks' email address by mistake!


The problem was solved a couple of hours later, with Mr. Peck having to delete several thousands of email from his inbox. A Google spokesperson pointed out however that several more people were... popular like Mr. Peck since their email was made so obvious to Google searches.
