| Updated on:

As of now, we have witnessed OpenAI’s ChatGPT helping users with conversations, queries, generating the content, and more. But now apparently, ChatGPT is helping people recover money as well. 

CEO of DoNotPay, Joshua Browder, shared his experience on Twitter after he was able to receive $209.67 through unclaimed receipts from California Government by raising a request on a ChatGPT browsing extension. It was stated, Joshua asked ChatGPT, to “find some money” and in a matter of minutes the AI chatbot was able to generate money for Browder.

Key Points: 

  • Joshua Browder was able to receive $209.67 from the California Government after a few minutes after making a request to ChatGPT.
  • The website that ChatGPT visited for money was called “California State Controller”.
  • ChatGPT was unable to roll up the process automatically due to captcha verification. 

How did ChatGPT help recover the money? 

Joshua Browder, CEO of DoNotPay, has shared his experience of recovering more than $200 via ChatGPT’s browsing extension. Browder asked the ChatGPT browsing extension if it could help him “Find some money,” and OpenAI’s chatbot obliged with the input.

Browder received around $209.67 from the California Government a few minutes after making this request to ChatGPT. However, it’s essential to note these were unclaimed receipts that hadn’t been collected by Browder in the past. Browder shared this incident on Twitter by explaining everything in detail. 

Browder explained through his Twitter that the AI chatbot ChatGPT came up with the solution of visiting a website known as “California State Controller”. This website claims to carry unclaimed refunds from businesses that are unable to reach you. It delivered a link with step-by-step instructions on what you need to do,” he wrote.  

He added I followed all the mentioned steps and that $209.67 was waiting for me, within a few minutes. 

Browder also stated, this process could have been completed automatically by ChatGPT as well, however, the only thing that keeps the AI chatbot from achieving this is “Captcha”. 

“ChatGPT was able to operate the unclaimed receipt’s website from the California Government. However, the website requires a verification process through reCAPTCHA. Which an AI language model is unable to do, ChatGPT responded. 

Companies will never take part in integrations, as it can lose them money. However, Comcast isn’t going to let you cancel with ChatGPT Plus. He stated We are working to bridge this gap with our own plugin. 

ChatGPT Capabilities 

Last month, OpenAI introduced GPT-4, an advanced multimodal language model that contains input vision, takes exams, handles complex tasks, and more. By making GPT-4 available for ChatGPT Plus users and opening a waitlist for API. GPT-4’s additional capabilities and features received major recognition from users. 

OpenAI claims its GPT-4 is less capable than a human in terms of real-life matters, but can deliver human-level performance with various academic and professional benchmarks. GPT-4 deep learning and knowledge were able to pass some of the top examinations such as the Bar exam, LSAT, GRE, and more.
