## How do I get my bitcoins back if they got sent to an incorrect address?

1

I loaded my localbitcoin wallet with a total of $100 - I did 2 separate transactions. The first time I added$50, I tried to send half of it to cardrockcafe but it never showed up, so I tried to add the remaining amount. That also never showed up. A few days later I added another \$50 to my localbitcoin wallet and attempted to transfer it to a different website. Again it never showed up. I've set up tickets with all 3 websites and not really getting any responses that are helpful so I've been researching on my own what is going on.

I noticed that when I copied the address and pasted it onto another website the address changed to a completely different one. So I went back to my last few transactions where my money never showed up and the addresses are different as well; meaning the one I was supposed to copy and paste was different when I actually pasted it.

So I added money to a different wallet and I actually typed out the address when I tried to transfer my money to website C instead of copy and pasting them, and the money or bitcoins rather showed up rather quickly. I checked the receiving address of one of the last transactions where my money disappeared and the address is stating the money is still there, but I cannot get to it, or do not know how to retrieve it, can somebody help?

Can you edit this question down to just the part you are asking about? I think I know what you are asking, but I'm not entirely sure. – Jestin – 2016-08-02T21:24:49.927

4Ask the person who has the private key corresponding to that address. If that person does not exist, or you don't know who they are, you're screwed. – Nick ODell – 2016-08-02T23:40:27.093
