Title: Bitcoin Wallet Recovery Services - for forgotten wallet password
Post by: walletrecoveryservices on June 22, 2013, 07:51:25 PM
Hi
I have put together a service to help you recover your wallet password (for your encrypted bitcoin wallet) if you have forgotten it.
Refer to walletrecoveryservices.com (http://walletrecoveryservices.com)
I hope this will be useful to someone.

(and before you ask, no, this isn't a scam to steal your bitcoins! :))
Cheers
Dave

When was the last time that you checked that you actually correctly remember the passphrase for your encrypted bitcoin wallet? And that it can be successfully decrypted with that password, allowing you to spend your bitcoins? There are plenty of stories out there of people who have forgotten or misplaced their wallet password...

Indeed, often true. In this case, however, this is a bona fide service to help people who have lost their wallet passwords.
Similar to scripts used previously on this forum.
Have a read on the website, you'll see that I'm not suggesting that people send me their whole wallet (which would potentially allow me to steal their bitcoins if I was a dodgy character (which I'm not)). Instead, they can send me just the bits of the wallet information that allows for the decryption of the password, without exposing themselves to any risk of theft.

Cheers,
Dave

However, in spite of how it may appear, this is a legit service. See my earlier reply. I'm not asking anyone to send in their entire wallet.

How exactly do you do ot, then? Where are reviews? Why do you have no trust, why do you only have 13 poats?

Without endorsing his service, I will accept as plausible the notion that you can extract just enough information out of a wallet file that would allow cracking the password but not accessing the funds.  The method of making sure only the correct portion of the wallet file gets extracted is the part that deserves good peer review, but I think the idea (possibility) itself is legit.

Basically a wallet is protected with a random number key, and then this random number key is encrypted in a special master password record that is encrypted with the password itself.  The random number key is generated when the wallet is created and isn't useful by itself for accessing coins without the actual encrypted Bitcoin private key records to go with it.  If you can rip that master record out of the wallet, you can crack at the password with no possibility of access to funds.

How is it done, technically?
Well, you can refer to this earlier posting, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=239665.0 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=239665.0)
where I briefly explain how the information in an encrypted wallet is stored, and some links to further reading for anyone interested.

As for trust, that will be a long slow process to build up, I expect. Hopefully the first few satisfied customers who regain their bitcoin funds will help!

That would be nice if you could upload a chunk of your wallet that the person brute forces. I'm sure all those spare graphic cards are useful for other things than mining! ;)

I think this service, while very niche, can be quite useful and profitable. Too bad my lost wallets wasn't from encryption (that wasn't even a feature back then!), but rather from selling a computer.

Hi.
Read up above further in this thread. See the instructions on the website. If you spend a few minutes, and have some technical understanding of the bitcoin wallet format, like Casascius, you may be able to understand how this isn't a scam, and is in fact a useful service.
Cheers,
Dave

Pretty cool idea. Thanks for offering a great service to the community.

Of course as casascius pointed out, someone sending you the extracted wallet bits necessary for cracking would have to make sure no info enabling access to funds is leaked.

After a while and some users have regained access to their funds, trust will build.

Instead of yelling "scam" all over this thread as a kind-of knee-jerk reaction, people should try to find possible flaws in the method instead (after they have actually looked at how this works).

Lazy scam-accusers are lazy.

SCAM

in other words: you fucking idiots didn't even care enough to look at the linked page:

Trust
Should you trust us with your wallet? Why won't we just steal your money? Good questions. If you send us your wallet, and we decrypt the password, then it would be possible for us steal the money that the wallet holds. (we won't, but you can't be sure of that). Fortunately, the design of the bitcoin wallet is such that you can send us just part of the wallet information. The part you send us allows us to decrypt the wallet, without giving us any opportunity to steal your money. See various detailed explanations on the bitcoin wallet design (google them). Refer to this page for more detailed information.

read this: http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com/information.html, understand it and then come back and yell "scam" again.

:-). Awesome.

I can sort-of understand it though. Bitcoin can look quite a scammer ridden wild-west style place at times and a quick skim over your post certainly rings the scammer bell if you don't look any further.

It's interesting. On the one side you have all the scammers and con-artists, on the other hand I have met and dealt with a lot of honest, trustworthy and generous people in this community. Many of them I trust more than my local grocery merchant to not try to rip me off, even though they are a lot harder to get any kind of hold on in case of a problem.

I guess it's just a reflection of the "real world" after all, maybe a bit more extreme on both sides.

Yes, absolutely. And I haven't taken offense at the aspersions cast on my service (or my character :) ). I myself would be skeptical of similar services. It is, in fact, really fortunate (was it planned?) that the structure of the encrypted bitcoin wallet is such that it allows for the 'remote' brute force decryption of the password by a third party without needing to trust that third party with all the bitcoin addresses in the wallet.

Dave

The fact (of the reduced trust required for a third party for password recovery) was raised in this forum previously. I can't claim credit for the original idea, although I have developed it.

Ok, let's harden the assumption he can't scam us.

I made a fresh wallet and encrypted it with password "s3cr3t"

I prepared the wallet dump I would send to the service for recovery following the instructions (http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com/information.html):

}

I dare walletrecoveryservices to transfer some money to that address: 19xTYJg3i1YuoHtYqtNhXcer65K9wZ1n4b, which is part of the wallet (but not the dump, obviously). I realise he has to trust me with the money, so I could understand if he doesn't do it.

If his method was flawed, anyone could take that money.

If noone takes the money after a week, I will send it back to walletrecoveryservices and we can be pretty sure his method doesn't enable him him to steal customer money.

I accept your challenge, Molecular.!!!
I have transferred 1.00 BTC to that address, 19xTYJg3i1YuoHtYqtNhXcer65K9wZ1n4b
You have published the details of that wallet above, so everyone reading this now knows the same details as the walletrecoveryservices.com (http://walletrecoveryservices.com) website is asking for when it tries to decode a wallet.
There is 1.00 BTC in that wallet.
I can't steal it, and I do not believe that anyone else can either. Prove me wrong, skeptics!
If you think that the concept behind the wallet password recovery service is flawed, here is your chance to prove it, and earn some cash.

Here is the record of the 1.00BTC transaction: https://blockchain.info/address/19xTYJg3i1YuoHtYqtNhXcer65K9wZ1n4b

I'm trusting Molecular to return my 1 BTC at the end of this exercise... sometimes you have to show some trust to earn some trust... :)

Just a few months ago when I thought I forgot the password to 300 mili, I thought of a service exactly like this along with pricing models. In fact, I thought that this kind of service would demand trust and reputation. Kind of like John of these forums does for escrow.

Awesome to see an actual service for this stuff available.

That's true.

It's pretty easy to become confident the info doesn't allow stealing of the money when one takes a look and thinks for a bit. Even just looking at my post above and thinking about how one would go about stealing the money should suffice.

It might be more effective to show people 1 BTC that doesn't move instead of asking them to go through some process and think.

Either you pay per work or you pay per job.
  • If you pay per work you need a mechanism to gauge how much work was done even if there are no resulting passwords brute-forced. I could only think of an auditable system building trust.
  • If you pay per job, he needs to trust you that the password is not impossible to brute-force or else you can get him to waste computing power for nothing.

ok, true. I was still narrowly focussing on the "money stealing" aspect.

the service is bro-bono anyway, right? I guess someone regaining access to his funds will be grateful enough to donate generously.

Hi
Yes, I have been thinking about the best charging model:
If I make the service purely success-based, then I am at the mercy of people who send in false information and cause me to waste CPU cycles (money) for no reason.
If I make the service purely pay-as-you-go, (based on CPU time used), then I cannot charge 'high-end' customers more money than the average.
It may be that some combination of both charging models will be required in the long term - for instance a basic cost-recovery pay-as-you-go model, plus a % recovery fee, or similar.

However for now, yes, it is a pro-bono service.
I'm currently working on several wallet decryptions.
Cheers
Dave

I don't understand why people establish multiple identities/accounts here. Who is the true owner of the account?  Why hide it?    

If I had such a great idea, I'd want to be recognized for it, rather than starting a blank account and trying to sell something... it seems easier to sell things here when you have some type of history, unless the person already has a tarnished record and wants to start over or just get some quick coins out of a scam?

In the end, I will just consider this a scam until I need to recover my password...     ;D

Another thing is that they should create an opensource script that grabs the portions from the wallet that they need for a safe decryption. Because the script will be opensource people will have confidence that it is doing exactly what it is supposed to do and not anything else.

You say it yourself:

Quote
If you have no idea at all of your passphrase, and it was more than a handful of characters long, then we cannot help you. No-one in the world, including the NSA, CIA, D-Wave or anyone else can crack the encryption used in the bitcoin wallet if the passphrase is more than 15 fairly random characters. The bitcoin wallet encryption is strong by design. There are no known flaws in the implementation, and many people have tried to break it!

You cannot crack a good passphrase. Stupid people should be punished. If they lose one time they will be more careful or lose money again. It's a learning experience. I almost don't want you to provide this service because it will rob users of the valuable experience. People can now be lazy and make a simple password. If they forget it they can just come to you and all is well.

Also, have you thought about the possibility that a thief might use your service to crack a stolen wallet. Bots are easy to set up and can even be spread simply. If I were a bot operator and found that a few zombies had wallets I might be tempted to just have you crack all the wallets that I can find instead of setting up my own system to do it.

The script to grab the required portion of the wallet is specifically open-source!

Yes, I've thought about the bad guys using this service to crack other people's stolen wallets. I hate the idea of the site being used for evil. However, as you rightly quote from the walletrecoveryservices.com (http://walletrecoveryservices.com) website, that would be a completely futile exercise unless the bad guy knows 'most' of the wallet password. Probably if they done a key-logging, then they know all the password already. If I move to using a pay-as-you-go model for the cracking service, I'm happy for them to try. :) But only the most stupid, basic passwords have any chance of being cracked when the user has no idea of the forgotten passphrase and I don't think many people are silly enough to have a super weak password. (oh, well, maybe some are...)
If I was to detect some user submitting many wallets for decryption, then I would stop them using the wallet recovery services.

You say it yourself:

Quote
If you have no idea at all of your passphrase, and it was more than a handful of characters long, then we cannot help you. No-one in the world, including the NSA, CIA, D-Wave or anyone else can crack the encryption used in the bitcoin wallet if the passphrase is more than 15 fairly random characters. The bitcoin wallet encryption is strong by design. There are no known flaws in the implementation, and many people have tried to break it!

You cannot crack a good passphrase. Stupid people should be punished. If they lose one time they will be more careful or lose money again. It's a learning experience. I almost don't want you to provide this service because it will rob users of the valuable experience. People can now be lazy and make a simple password. If they forget it they can just come to you and all is well.

Also, have you thought about the possibility that a thief might use your service to crack a stolen wallet. Bots are easy to set up and can even be spread simply. If I were a bot operator and found that a few zombies had wallets I might be tempted to just have you crack all the wallets that I can find instead of setting up my own system to do it.
Yes, I've thought about the bad guys using this service to crack other people's stolen wallets. I hate the idea of the site being used for evil. However, as you rightly quote from the walletrecoveryservices.com (http://walletrecoveryservices.com) website, that would be a completely futile exercise unless the bad guy knows 'most' of the wallet password. Probably if they done a key-logging, then they know all the password already. If I move to using a pay-as-you-go model for the cracking service, I'm happy for them to try. :) But only the most stupid, basic passwords have any chance of being cracked when the user has no idea of the forgotten passphrase and I don't think many people are silly enough to have a super weak password. (oh, well, maybe some are...)
If I was to detect some user submitting many wallets for decryption, then I would stop them using the wallet recovery services.
Cheers,
Dave


I'm glad to see you say that and don't discount the stupidity of the average person.  ;)

Another thing is that they should create an opensource script that grabs the portions from the wallet that they need for a safe decryption. Because the script will be opensource people will have confidence that it is doing exactly what it is supposed to do and not anything else.
Er... Have you looked at the instruction at walletrecoveryservices.com (http://walletrecoveryservices.com) ?
The script to grab the required portion of the wallet is specifically open-source!

pywallet is opensource but there is no script to grab the exact portions YOU need. Instead you are asking people to do it manually. I recommend creating an opensource script that grabs the parts you need so that non-techies don't have to muck about with pywallet.

Yes these non-techies will need assurances from techies that the script does what it says on the tin and nothing more. So maybe you can do this in the future when you have enough of a following that somebody reputable will take the time to look at the code and say it is safe.

However for now, yes, it is a pro-bono service.
I'm currently working on several wallet decryptions.

Cool. Do they look like they have a chance of success, i.e. did the users provide helpful enough info?

It really is easy enough to follow the instructions manually: pywallet --dumpwallet, edit human-readable dumpfile (remove all addresses except 2)

Hi
Still working on the wallets. One of the 'customers' has some reasonable idea of the password, but also a big list of possible variations and alternatives. Some of those alternatives have required me to make some enhancements to the logic in the service to cater for that type of permutation.
So... no luck yet, but continuing to work on them.

I see that the 1 BTC is still secure. (I was a tad worried that I might have overlooked some aspect of the wallet format that might have lead to a vulnerability to the third-party trustlessness that I explained. Fortunately, it seems like it is all secure :) )
Thanks for your suggestion and help on this 'proving not a scam' process, Molecular, it has been really helpful.

Cheers
Dave

oh, i will add one more thing, if you decide against using my help, you might try the user "walletrecoveryservices" or something to that effect. he claims to have invented a program that can strip the public key out of wallet.dat files and use it to bruteforce the account with no possibility of stealing the funds. to my knowledge he hasn't proven that it works or is real, but he's made the claim. i'm not sure what his rates are either. if you do choose to use the walletrecovery guy, please be aware his account isn't very old and he could very well be a scammer.

Scammer Fails So Hard

Ok, let's harden the assumption he can't scam us.


I accept your challenge, Molecular.!!!
I have transferred 1.00 BTC to that address, 19xTYJg3i1YuoHtYqtNhXcer65K9wZ1n4b
You have published the details of that wallet above, so everyone reading this now knows the same details as the walletrecoveryservices.com (http://walletrecoveryservices.com) website is asking for when it tries to decode a wallet.
There is 1.00 BTC in that wallet.
I can't steal it, and I do not believe that anyone else can either. Prove me wrong, skeptics!
If you think that the concept behind the wallet password recovery service is flawed, here is your chance to prove it, and earn some cash.

Here is the record of the 1.00BTC transaction: https://blockchain.info/address/19xTYJg3i1YuoHtYqtNhXcer65K9wZ1n4b

I'm trusting Molecular to return my 1 BTC at the end of this exercise... sometimes you have to show some trust to earn some trust... :)


Cool.

Money has arrived:

http://i.imgur.com/MCVcN4hl.png (http://i.imgur.com/MCVcN4h.png)


ok, so a week has passed and walletrecoveryservices PMed me wanting his 1 BTC back, so I sent it to him.

http://i.imgur.com/1PV8gNdl.png (http://i.imgur.com/1PV8gNd.png)

notice how someone used the 1ErroNQ... address? It was in the wallet dump I published, so anyone might've used it.

not so the 19xTYJg... address. The bitcoin seems to have been secure there despite me having published the wallet (omitting that address, of course) and the password.

Ergo, I'm quite sure walletrecoveryservices has no way to steal your money if you send him your wallet dump after removing addresses with money on them.

That was me (notice the address and public message). I just wanted to see how difficult it would be to extract the private key from the wallet fragment given the password (answer: fairly easy, just a messy hack of the the pywallet code).

As for the rest of the wallet. Its completely secure. Your only option is to brute force it, which is an impossible solution (the numbers are just way too large to be feasible, it would take until the end of eternity, then start again for an eternity of eternities kind of unfeasible).

Anyway the challenge was fun, I learned something about wallets and the various encryptions used  :D

It would be interesting if you could create a "pool" of people's machines to crack (err... recover) wallets, and distribute the fee to them based on how much work they did. I imagine you could do something similar to mining pools.

I'm not sure its feasable. You'd have to find a way to divide up the search space and somehow make provable some subspace has been searched. This is different from vanitygen or mining where there are many solutions, not just one.

Yes, I've thought a bit about doing this (splitting up the search space and making a public API to access it).
Perhaps in the future.
However, for now, I can just run up multiple amazon instances to do the same thing.
p.s. In response to demand, I now have added the ability to walletrecoveryservices.com to brute force crack the blockchain.info wallet format too. If you have a wallet.aes.json file backup (for your mobile or online account), then I can help you recover your password if you've forgotten it.

Does that blockchain.info wallet format also allow removing the keys that have money on them in the same way as the bitcoind one?

The blockchain.info wallet backup format contains a sharedKey, various options, and (I believe) just the last used address. You can't separate the information in the same way as the wallet.dat format allows.
 So no, if there are bitcoins attached to that particular address, then they are potentially thievable. However if the bitcoins are on other addresses, then I don't believe that those addresses are disclosed in the backup. (afaik)

I would expect, right off the bat, that the tool has to be modified to crack passwords that follow the pattern of the user who forgot theirs. Because unless the password is weak, brute force cracking with no clue as to what the password might resemble or contain isn't really possible.

Good point.  Providing the tool with these user patterns for modification takes a trusted channel.  That would likely count for the distribute choice.
Holding choice is supported by the anti-abuse use cases, which is a strong one considering...

I guess it comes down to a couple of reasons:
1) If I distribute the tool (open source-wise), then unscrupulous persons can use it. In fact I have already been approached by someone wanting to buy my software stack, but I turned them down outright, since it was probably a botnet owner or similar... I didn't want to be sullied by the bad guys.
2) If I distribute the tool, then I have little chance of making any money. Currently I am working on several wallets with substantial 'rewards'. (as well as some with little or no reward, I might point out)

Also, (as pointed out later in this thread), quite a few of the specific wallets that I've worked on do indeed require tweaks to the algorithms... no matter how generic you make them, someone always has another bit of remembered logic up their sleeve... like "wordnumberwordnumber where I'm pretty sure that the numbers were the reverse of each other's digits", etc, etc

Maybe when/if I get tired of bitcoins and wallet decryption stuff, then I will open-source it.

as of last week (Sunday Aug 25)I was gearing up to make
an investment using my blockchain wallet

and suddenly out of no where my blockchain
wallet unsynced from my mobile device [ android]
literally in seconds of me sending my bitcoins to it!

mind you, 3 months usage I've never had a issue until then
which caused alot of fustration and precious time
trying to retrieve my btc!

the password I use when I first downloaded the blockchain App
wallet seem to be invalid *( I write down all passwords for all my accounts)*

it's been an ongoing nightmare with the thought of losing my btc
which I can't seem to understand why would my blockchain wallet
UNsync from my device, jus seconds of me sending btc to It!

if your service can help me recover my password / btc
I'm willing to compensate you for your time

thank you

It is interesting that most users prefer to remain quiet. (perhaps a degree of embarassment). :)

Currently I am busy with attempts on multiple wallets. (both bitcoin/litecoin based and blockchain.info based)

The majority of wallets decryptions that I've attempted have been unsuccessful, but I have had a number of notable successes. I might prod those (successful) wallet users, and see if they will put a message up here about their experiences.

Hi
To put your mind at ease, no, I haven't identified any encryption weaknesses or shortcuts to the decryption mechanism in the bitcoin, litecoin or blockchain wallets.

Development on the toolset continues. It is surprising how many different types of {x} there are amongst people's "I thought I knew my passphrase but it doesn't work, and it might be because {x}"

Wallet recovery is definitely possible to do without scamming. I would not be so quick as to yell scam, but I would be sure not to send my whole wallet to just anyone who requests it!

It reminds me a lot of hired vanity address generators. It does not seem smart to let someone generate a whole private key for you, however https://bitcoinvanity.appspot.com/ seems to have a good way to do this. If you generate your own part-private (or split-private) key then you would be fine.

I do not see why a system built on no trust needed would need to rely on so much trust. If I don't understand something, I may risk some money in attempts of understanding if it's legit and logical, but I don't risk more than I'd be willing to lose.

We should not forget that Pirateat40 had the best OTC reputation for some time ;)

This is not about trust or reputation. The way this service works doesn't require trust. Operator cannot steal your coins. You will see that by either looking at the process of submitting your partial wallet or by reading this thread (the part about the 1 BTC).

Looks like I was having one of my grandpa moments. I thought I had read that trust would build over time and this service would be accepted, which is why my response was saying that services should not rely on trust but comprehension of the underlying procedures. Sorry for any misunderstanding.

What this guy has to offer is essentially a lot of computing power that can be rented for the time needed to brute-force a mistyped password. It is pretty awesome and I would definitely recommend anyone who needs a service like this to read into it.

It doesn't require trusting your wallet to the service.  It does require other sorts of trusts, though very little.  I wish it every success, it is likely to be increasingly in demand.

it is a blockchain.info wallet.aes.json, i have no re-callable memory of what it was, i probably used lastpass password generator (nothing in its history though :/)

the one thing i never got out of this, was your cost of service, or is it what ever it is worth to the person?

i'll continue scouting all my HDDs for any random file with the password or mnemonic stored in it (im so good like that, texting up my password, leaving them laying around.. like keys to my cars left laying around in the pub)

Anywho, scam yodellers still have no proof that you are scamming, and you haven't been shut down and out yet, so you're out there doing good then

i was so going to jump on your service, till you mentioned that you cant get 15+ lettered passwords, its a shame, i blame hardware for that one, not you

i'll continue scouting all my HDDs for any random file with the password or mnemonic stored in it (im so good like that, texting up my password, leaving them laying around.. like keys to my cars left laying around in the pub)
Good luck searching for the password... and yes, 15 random characters is pretty safe at this point from any brute-force decryption! (unless you know the format or most of the letters)
By the way, my service is busy busy busy. Especially in the last few weeks - I suppose the BTC price has something to do with it...!  ::)
Regards,
Dave

Well, I have managed to solve 2 lost wallet passwords this week - returning the lost funds to their owners successfully :)
I also have multiple other decryption attempts on the go (for dozens of people)

When I first started with bitcoin I lost my password but saved the wallet.. (1st BTC learning experience) are you brute forcing these things because I may be able to dig up my old wallet..

Yes, that is correct, I am brute-forcing them.
However read up on walletrecoveryservices.com  - where I spell out that a wallet encrypted with a totally unknown password is unlikely to every be decrypted. (unless you used a pretty weak password).

Hi everyone,

I haven't read this whole thread, but I'd like to vouch for Dave's services and his personal integrity.

I lost a wallet back in May (see this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=85495.msg2104596#msg2104596) and when I was unable to crack the passphrase myself I sent the wallet and some guesses about the passphrase to Dave (and some others). Last night he sent me 80% of the coins originally in the wallet, after (apparently) having been working intermittently on this recovery for 5 months or more.

Slightly more detail on this this reddit thread: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1q8zan/dave_bitcoin_of_walletrecoveryservicescom_just/

Hi
The password was  actually "John Brow, John Brow; apple mattress angst Yeti"
which is almost embarrassingly easy, given the original remembered password :)

Goddamn it. Probably a wonky "n" key on my keyboard. (I have a System76 laptop which is based on a Clevo case. The build quality is good overall, but the chiclet style keyboard is total bullshit compared to my old ThinkPad.)

not sflichts brain fucked up, but his hardware. ironic.

kudos for finding it. you probably had to spend many cycles on that. Omitting characters was probabily not a priority compared to capitalizations, replacing chars, swapping etc... right?

Hi guys.
Yes, I'm still here, and still actively working to decrypt your wallets!

My trouble is simply a time issue for me:

1) I have a normal (non-bitcoin) life, involving family, work, etc
2) I occasionally like to go to sleep before 2am, and get up after 6:00am
3) I have been contacted by a large number of people about helping them with their wallets. Some people just need assistance with mundane (non-password-related) issues. But most need their wallets decyrpted, which takes time. Everyone seems to have a different situation and story.
4) I'm actively working to improve my software (eg adding support for decryption of electrum, armory and multibit wallets), which is itself a 40+ hour/week job.

So, I'm sorry if I haven't been responding to your emails when I should. I haven't even checked this forum thread for days :)

I am getting a part-time helper to start giving me a hand, so hopefully I can get on top of the backlog.
I'm determined to make this service useful to the bitcoin/altcoin community, so please understand if things take a while while I scale up the 'people' side of walletrecoveryservices.com.

Cheers
Dave

I've replied to you by email.
Just for the record, I was waiting for you to obtain the correct information and send it to me, as per my last email to you. I cannot work on decrypting your wallet if I haven't got it...

Hi.
Generally if I can't get the wallet decrypted within a couple of weeks, then the chances become pretty minimal. There comes a point when throwing more grunt at the problem simply costs me money, without much hope of success....

I used this service a few months ago but just got around to typing up a review of it.  Short answer: everything worked perfectly! It took a little bit longer than I had hoped, but this was only a problem because I was left in suspense.  In retrospect I don't care about how long it took at all, just happy to recover my Bitcoin!

I'm sorry to shamelessly plug my blog, but I wrote a lengthy review of my situation and how the process worked: http://devsbitcoinblog.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-stupidity-is-another-mans.html (http://devsbitcoinblog.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-stupidity-is-another-mans.html) 

Note that the post is targeted at an audience with only a basic familiarity with Bitcoin, so most of the content will already be obvious to the average reader on here.

I just want to report a success with Dave's Wallet Password Recovery Service at http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com . Support for multibit wallets have just been added recently so I approached him again. All I knew was that my password was an english word with the number 9 on the end. We agreed on a 20% 'hacker's' fee. I was not able to work out how to send him a theft proof 'part of the wallet' thing so just trusted him with the whole wallet.dat file. 2 days later he had done it! He could have stolen my 4.6BTC but he did not. As per arrangement he deducted 20% and I have now got back the rest. I trusted Dave and he was proved 100% trustworthy. I am very impressed! Thanks Dave I really appreciate it

Hi, I am quite new in this world of cryptocurrencies, but nevertheless I am very looking into it and very aware of the risks that keeping your money in cryptowallets can have. I don't have a lot of knowledge about coding and I had one big problem with a wallet. I had a mistake when typing my password. I had a good amount of Fiat in cryptocoins which I rather not lose due to a stupid mistake of typinga a password wrong.
The thing is that I tried to remember my password and typed it in many different ways but I couldn't type properly somehow.
I searched through internet and in a couple of irc channels and I got the information about Dave in wallet recovery services.
There are two ways of doing things, sending him a part of the wallet through a program using MS-DOS console or the less tricky but high risk method of sending him the whole wallet. Honestly, somehow, I decided to send him the whole wallet. It was highly risky but I said, why not, there must be some people who still doing things right in this world. For those people who are scheptical to do this which is completely normal is better to use the other method of only sending one part of the wallet, but it maybe takes some more of time.
And so I did, and we were in constant contact trhough e-mail and it took less than 24 hours for him to take the correct encryption of the wallet. Of couse I sent him my passphrase to make things easier. I already sent the wallet, it didn't make too much sense not sending the passphrase. And yes, the mistake was minimal, one upper case letter wrong. These things happen. If you value cryptocurrency is worth to make something like this. He took 20% of my coins which is quite painful to be honest but rather that than losing everything. Even feeling that pain I was talking to him about trying to make a different way of payment. He is very opened and tries to find any way to help you and find a solution, finally we have let it like this but if someone does doubt about his method, I can say that he is a honest man and makes things fast and easy. Not a scammer. I could say that 99% of these deals on the internet are highly risky and not recommended at all and yes, they steal your coins. Anyway, I was lucky and I found Dave.

Thanks a lot Dave and keep on like that.

??????????

This is a smart brute force that searches for a password of a wallet.
How is this in any way related to stolen coins?
Of course it doesn't work, just like it doesn't work for repairing your car, or changing your diaper, or cooking you pizza.

If you're too lazy to wrap your head around this simple concept, then shut up, stop throwing around scam accusations and explain how the service would go about scamming people who don't send their complete wallet, just the keys with no money on them.

I cannot comment to what others have had or will have with Dave's services, but I am one HAPPY ass customer of his after yesterday!  I had mis typed a password that I logged for a new wallet I had transferred just under 1.6 million coins to, I tried for hours to figure it out to no avail.  Did some research and found this thread, fortunately there was at least enough content and comments in the thread that I felt at least comfortable enough to contact him.

I will admit I took a risk in just giving him my entire wallet, the procedure to give partial wallet looked to be a bit of a pain to me.  This was also a new coin with not too much value when I sent it to him so I said screw it and took the risk.......I had already lost em right?  Same day............got an email with my lost password and I was able to recover all my coins:-)  Of course, I shared a small percentage of that with Dave as we agreed..........hope you people don't think the guy will work for free!!

Dave also took a risk on me!!!  Yesterday when he did this work for me, he did it on my word that the coin will LIKELY have value within 1-2 weeks!  Yesterday when he did this, the coin had absolutely no value.....it was not even on an exchange yet and nobody knows anything of the developer behind this coin. 

Today the coin is on Bittrex and doing quite well........sometimes Karma isn't a bitch:-)

This is a true and REAL post from a real and normal dude........I get NOTHING and want NOTHING for posting this except to say thanks and hopefully give a few others that are locked away from their coins enough comfort to try the guy out........I SERIOUSLY doubt this guy will ever rip anyone off on this forum.

Thanks you Dave!!!!!!!

I would like to add my experience in dealing with Dave.

After weeks of trying to unlock my wallet without success, I turned to Dave's wallet recovery service as my final resort.

He replied quickly and was able to unlock within the day.  He moved all my coins out of the previous address and when I provided him with the new address, he send me the bitcoins in full (minus his service fee). 

If he was dishonest, he could have kept all the coins as he had full control of them. 

Thanks Dave for your quick response and service.

I had registered to Bitcointalk just to ask Dave for his services. It was a few months back. You can check my post histories.

Now that I've earned a bit of trust, I'd like to reiterate that Dave has been indeed of great help to recover my multibit password.

Also, I sent him the full keys. I was too much of a newb to do anything else and he sent me back the full amount less his 20% fee.

I'd recommend him to my friends.

I had registered to Bitcointalk just to ask Dave for his services. It was a few months back. You can check my post histories.

Now that I've earned a bit of trust, I'd like to reiterate that Dave has been indeed of great help to recover my multibit password.

Also, I sent him the full keys. I was too much of a newb to do anything else and he sent me back the full amount less his 20% fee.

I'd recommend him to my friends.

Dont give up hope. When Dave sent me back the password, I felt like an idiot. I had tried thousands of strange combinations when it was so obvious.

Today I can even say that losing my wallet's password was the best thing that happened to me regarding bitcoin. It forced me to make an account on this forum, read it, and leave behind me all the reddit retardness. I've already recouped my loss thanks to Aminorex and Rpietila investment advices. Check them out!

Oh and also: use electrum as a wallet. If I had used it in the first place, I would never have lost my keys. It gives you a 12 word seed and his way more user friendly.

Dave's service is working well!

unfortunately i had a mismatch in my password. I contacted Dave, without knowing him and i didnt know if i could trust him, and followed his guidelines for recovery. Ive send him the info he needed and a day later he was showing me the password mismatch.

Dave, thanks a lot!

I am actually more confident that it is a scam after your post

Come on guys. When you try to recover some password using the pywallet dump, you just send him a encrypted key with no funds, so he can recovered the password but recovers a private key with no funds. Thats 100% trustless.

This is a password recovery service, not private key recovery to determine the Master Key for the wallet.  This is used then (by the wallet owner to decrypt the funded private key(s).
The funded private key is not provided to the service in the portion of the modular wallet software that is sent to him for doing the password recovery.
It would not be possible to steal the coins in the wallet with just the information sent.

It uses this tool:
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=pywallet

What he's innovated seems to be a type of narrowed search, rainbow table, brute force cracking, with some fast hardware available to make it time-economical.  The 'secret sauce' would be in the search narrowing.  The ability to chop up the rainbow table by reducing the entropy based on what the wallet owner can provide from their memory is pretty important.

But this just cracks the password to the wallet.  Without the private key that has funds attached to it, or the full wallet, that information is not so very useful except to the wallet owner.

He's posted the process for sending just non-funded keys, and the master key (which is what is needed for the passphrase cracking) here:
http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com/information.html

But thanks to the services of Dave (http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com/), I managed to recover 80% of my bitcoin, 20% rightly belong to him. I followed his instruction, I sent him some files of the wallet, the one I thought was my password, and any possible, and the rest has done him.
Thank you Dave for his service, his speed and his honesty.

Hi Molecular
(sorry for the slow reply - I must have missed this posting of yours...)
In the early days, most of my customers did modify the wallet information that they sent to me to only contain addresses with 0 money. (for their bitcoin-core wallets).
However, nowadays, probably more than 90% of my customers simply send me their wallet.dat files directly, and trust me to deal honestly with them.

Hi. As I emailed you 6 days ago, unfortunately I have been unable to decrypt your wallet based on the information that you have provided. Your memory of what the password might be has not been sufficient to enable my software to succeed.
Sorry, but it doesn't look like I will be able to help you in your situation.
Fortunately, since your wallet contains virtually no coins, there isn't any financial impact :) !

I know there is no financial impact. But , it is my old btc address which always required for signing a message while making any deal with someone. Every person here ask for a old btc address signed message to prove my ownership.

But unfortunately , I lost my old btc address. That's why , I was trying to recover it with the help of your service.

Greetings Everyone!

I recently had the pleasure of utilizing wallet recovery services and thought I'd share my experience. I had recently lost the password to a wallet file I had that contained .56 BTC.  With no other options and after reading  his posts on BTC and his instructions on his website, I decided to give it a go. I messaged him with all the information he requested on his site. I DID NOT send him my wallet file. I utilized his python script and extracted the data requested along with my last known working password. He had emailed me my passphrase in under 12 hours and I was able to extract my coins to a different wallet. I happily paid the 20% requested. Loosing 20% is certainly way better than 100%! 

Utilize this service with full faith and confidence!!!

Let me explain to you my real case here.
I have a friend who ecrypted his wallet but he forgot the password for his 5 BTC coins and started a thread here on bitcointalk.org for any hints to recover the password.
I have been recommended walletrecoveryservices.com and I decided to give it a shot since I have nothing to lose.
I have contacted Dave and he replied me a few hours later, he asked for my wallet and a few hints of what I tought the password could be and asked me if I agree with a 20 % fee, only if he managed to crack the password.
The next day in the morning he mailed me that he decrypted the wallet, he took the 20 % we agreed first on, and send me the rest of the BTC to a wallet of my request.

Thank you so much Dave !
I do recommend his service to anyone who lost his password and has no way of recovering it.

After All the perfect reviews and not one bad word that i could find about wallet recovery services i did not hesitate at all a send him a copy of the info in my confirmation email from when I set up my wallet instead of using the python script. That was 2 weeks ago, and I have not heard one word about anything from him although when I sought him out he responded within almost minutes. I have sent two emails to him since and get no response, does anyone know if anything happened to him? I hate to say he got my coin and ran but I don't know what else to do. And I know I should have used the script so I didn't have to send my.dat file but really didn't think a few hundred dollars would be a cause for concern with a perfect reputation as such. I trust way to easy sometimes. So please I don't need to hear the obvious brow beating about what I should have done. I was just happy that my kids would have a good Christmas this year as I put a little back here and there into btc over several months. Now I guess I am back to the beginning. :(

I sent 2 ETH wallets (which I could loosely remember the password) to Dave. He created and adapted his tools to crack the wallets according to Ethereum's format and was very successful doing it. Everything went smoothly. I offered to pay him a % of total value and he sent back the remaining amount as well. I recommend his services. He's very professional and honest in what he does. +1

Hi. At once I want to apologize for the English, it is not my native language. Therefore perhaps there are a lot of mistakes in the text.

I ask community to help to understand to me in the circumstances. The person for the help in selection of the forgotten password for the BTC of a purse asked me recently. The purse had balance 100 BTC. I included the program and some time without success tried to find its password. Then to reduce search time I decided to ask for the help more qualified specialists. And readings information in a network I found the DAVE BITCOIN http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com/service in a search result

I contacted Dave E-mail: walletrecoveryservices@gmail.com, is lower a correspondence screen. Where told it a situation. And Dave agreed to help with selection of the password for payment of 20% of the sum. I installed the program which is recommended on the site Dave and which allegedly has to subtract the password from confidential keys after dump. But actually, as it appeared there is something other and Dave receives as a result of decoding not the password the phrase and your private keys. Also can do then with your coins anything and not return them to you.

After a while 8-10 hours of a coin from a purse were transferred by someone to other address. Here link to transaction: https://blockexplorer.com/tx/d298a4010c034e31290077b332102457ebdd8cbf1d1b22b15404fadf695d0db4

After that Dave didn't contact some hours. But late at night he at last wrote. He writes me, the purse was stolen and other owner, I at Dave had an address E-mail to which contacted the new owner and it type translated coins. It Dave as if has no relation to transaction any more.

It guarded me and I wrote the response letter of Dave where asked to provide correspondence or the Email address new, allegedly the owner of a purse. For clearing of a situation. I didn't receive the answer to this request.

The next morning the owner of a purse who initially asked me for the help contacted, I depicted to it a situation as is. He assured me that he is the real owner but not someone another and asked to return quicker to it it BTC.

Now I have a difficult situation on the one hand the owner of a purse who demands to return its sum. On the other side of Dave which used means but doesn't wish to return necessary part back. How to me to arrive? I have obligations to the owner of a purse, perhaps I should collect the necessary sum.

Hi. At once I want to apologize for the English, it is not my native language. Therefore perhaps there are a lot of mistakes in the text.

I ask community to help to understand to me in the circumstances. The person for the help in selection of the forgotten password for the BTC of a purse asked me recently. The purse had balance 100 BTC. I included the program and some time without success tried to find its password. Then to reduce search time I decided to ask for the help more qualified specialists. And readings information in a network I found the DAVE BITCOIN http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com/service in a search result

I contacted Dave E-mail: walletrecoveryservices@gmail.com, is lower a correspondence screen. Where told it a situation. And Dave agreed to help with selection of the password for payment of 20% of the sum. I installed the program which is recommended on the site Dave and which allegedly has to subtract the password from confidential keys after dump. But actually, as it appeared there is something other and Dave receives as a result of decoding not the password the phrase and your private keys. Also can do then with your coins anything and not return them to you.

No answer or clarifications on story. Also not to other posters there.

Why do you think Dave is in control of the money?

The guy demanding to be given his coins by you might as well have moved the coins himself. It's a trap!

Hi All.
Ok, here is the actual situation, with regards to the 100 BTC in question:
This wallet first surfaced in June 2014. Refer to the thread in this forum at
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=663544.20
The wallet was actually stolen from an FTP site, and belongs to a respected user on this forum, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=105669
This wallet has been floating around the internet since then, but it has a strong password, and has never been cracked.
Over the years, I have been sent this wallet several times, by different people. (and when it was first sent to me, I didn't realize it was stolen, and I tried to crack it, but without success.)
Anyway, a few days ago, this new guy, 'User Good', sent me the wallet. Not knowing the details of the wallet, I agreed to my standard contract of a 20% success fee. However once he sent me the wallet, I realized that this was the stolen wallet from 2 years ago.
At this point, I sent an email to the actual owner, informing him that this wallet was floating around with a bunch of hackers. He then moved the coins from that compromised wallet to somewhere else. I informed 'User Good' about exactly what had occurred.
That would normally be the end of the (happy) story, however now 'User Good' is badgering me for the return of 'his' 100 BTC. He even admits that the wallet was sent to him from someone else, and he has no idea of the password. He threatened to vilify me on the forums unless I sent him some bitcoins. I informed the actual owner (Technologov) about this, and he kindly clarified the situation - see the last posting in the thread at
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=663544.0;all

All the information above is verifiable, and I have email conversations to prove it, including my correspondence with the rightful owner.
Cheers
Dave

@Dave: I've always wondered: how do you make sure you get your cut in case someone used the method where he doesn't share the keys?
Hi Molecular.
As you know, the method of producing 'limited' wallet information from a bitcoin-core wallet has been proven to be 'safe' for the owner of the wallet. By this, I mean that if someone sends me the limited wallet information, there is literally no way for me to take possession of the coins.
So, in answer to your question... I have no way of being sure of my cut in this situation. In practise, I have been very pleasantly surprised by the number of people who are honest enough to send me my success fee when I have helped them recover their money. I would say that fewer than 15% have reneged on their part of the deal. Given that most people that contact me remain anonymous, that is surprisingly low. I guess that when you are looking at losing the entire amount of bitcoins, then to receive typically 80% of them back is pretty pleasing, and most do pay me the fee.
To add to this explanation, in fact most people these days just send me their wallet.dat file directly. I guess that I've been around long enough, and gained enough trust for people to feel comfortable doing that.
Plus other wallet formats (like armory, BitGo, airbitz, BIP38, Eth-pre-sale, etc) do not even have the ability to send 'trustless', limited wallet information, so those people just send me their wallet file.
I am well aware that my business model relies heavily upon trust and my reputation, so I ensure that I act honestly at all times with my clients (who now number over 900).
Cheers
Dave

"over 900"?!? That's pretty damn impressive.

It's pretty interesting about the people trusting you when they actually wouldn't have to. They choose the perceived risk of trusting you above the hassle of going through using some obscure process to treat the wallet.dat with.

Almost seems man wants to trust. Makes him feel warm and cozy inside, I guess. Probably this was at some point (maybe still is?) an evolutionary advantage.

I wonder what this means regarding our beloved trustless currency. Will people be easily lured into possibly dangerous offchain schemes because they're easier to use? We've actually already seen this: mtGox. It was just easier and more convenient (ready to trade) to keep the coins on the exchange.
I used to comfort myself with the fact that a "bank run" would always be possible. But looking at the blocksize limit freeze, bank runs might be slow and costly. Thing about bank runs: they need to be quick to be effective. If there's transaction backlog the "bank" has the luxury of time and thus remains capable of acting. The threat of a run is therefore greatly reduced.

Sorry, I went off on a tangent there.

keep up the great work, Dave.
over 900! wow.

Dave, your lie knows no limit. You claim that the wallet passed from hand to hand since 2014 and came to you several times from different people. And knowing about it, you or your owner didn't withdraw a coin. Nevertheless, only after the owner asked me for the help, and I sent all data after Pywallet to you, 8 hours of a coin later flowed away. And now you try to justify, thinking out a legend? I proofs of communication with you, and sendings data provided to you. Show you to us proofs of the words, correspondence the other. Dates have to coincide.

If you ever need to unlock your wallet, i recommend Dave's wallet recovery service,
he's a very nice and trustable guy.

Dave, many many thanks for your help, i really appreciate it.

I lost my password to my wallet over 6 months ago.

Initially, I had a friend try and crack it and when he was uncessfull he went to someone else
 Had no idea it was Dave.

Then last week I had another friend take my wallet and he too was unsuccessful.

So I contacted Dave myself, not knowing he had my wallet already.  As I begin to explain my situation about my wallet... He already knew the passphrases that were given to him.

Asked me for any more possible combinations, literally hours later he was able to decrypt it.

It was for a significant amount of coins, more than 30. He kept his bargain and sent me the remaining coins.

I highly recommended Dave. His company is one you can definitely trust. 5 months later, he did his job. Just make sure you are somewhat close to your passphrase.

i forgot my wallet including my pass about 1-2 years ago and i could not remember my pass.
Dave did his job within 24hours, just amazingly accurate.

i gave him 20% of the wallet, that was arranged before and he met that arrangement.

Is it still Ontopic ?

I am new here and in Bitcoins, and it seems I made a big mistake with Electrum. I created a new Wallet and it seems I forgot to save the seed and password. But before I realized it, I bought coins and received to this wallet.

Now I have coins in my wallet, and can´t use them :(

Is the Service of Dave still available ?

And how long would it currently take to get his password recovered ? I used a 19 characters password generated password.

Thank you all for your replies and help.

P.S. Dave you got email from me, because I can´t get the python script working of missing plugin in Windows python.

Sent a request to your email today. Used pywallet.py script to obtain the necessary data requested. Sent pgp encrypted .txt file with the data.

This wallet has been locked for about a year, and I cannot remember the exact combination of the pw, but provided what I believed it to be along with alternate versions of key words.

For the communities consideration as to calling this a scam. The way I see it is, I can't spend them anyways, so essentially they are worthless to the whole community, if by some miracle, this process allows theft of the 1.75 to 1.9 BTC in this wallet, then overall it benefits the BTC community by having more BTC available for use on the network overall.

I have communicated that I will provide 0.4 BTC for a successful unlock, which is slightly more than 20%.

I will post my results here for the communities review.



As to the previous post with the missing .dll file. I had the same error, just reinstall python 2.7 and it should work for you. It did for me anyways.

This is wrong thinking, I think.

Those BTC (if Dave was a thief, which he is not) would not benefit the community, just Dave.

Also: Consider that if those BTC are inaccessible, then all other BTC are worth slightly more.

Hello guys,

Im gonna to send Dave info about my wallet in a limited way (http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com/information.html).
But some issues apperead. which i hope will be solved after your feedback.
So, I downloaded Python and Pywallet. After typing via CMD  --dumpwallet, i receive message "pycrypto or libssl not found, decryption may be slow", then some docs were created with name .lock and __db001-006

But i can't find .txt docs with info is need to decrypt.

Could you please so kind to handle me with this issue?

UPD: If i use command pywallet.py --dumpwallet    => info about addr apears in cmd window (just abour addr, no section of mkey as Dave requested)
If I use command pywallet.py --dumpwallet > temp.txt     => WARNING:root: pycrypto or libssl not found, decryption may be slow

I think this service, while very niche, can be quite useful and profitable. Too bad my lost wallets wasn't from encryption (that wasn't even a feature back then!), but rather from selling a computer.

I really appreciate the red trust you have earned !

I don't see how wallets can be recovered like that. That still seems too easy even if it is as you described, but if you have no other option you may as well give the OP a try, at least he is not asking for payment upfront. Well I guess asking for payment upfront is a dead giveaway though.


Title: Re: Bitcoin Wallet Recovery Services - for forgotten wallet password
Post by: dooglus on July 02, 2016, 06:48:11 PM
I don't see how wallets can be recovered like that.

You have to be able to tell him what the passphrase is like. Then he tries modifying it in various ways to try to guess the bit that you remembered (or typed) wrongly. I don't see why you wouldn't think this would work.

I guess asking for payment upfront is a dead giveaway though.

I don't think so. It would be easy to "DOS" Dave by sending him a bunch of big wallets with a really long impossible to guess passphrases on them, and lying about what you "remember" of the passphrase. It would be quite reasonable of him to ask for some kind of payment up front to deter such attacks against him, because otherwise he's wasting his computing resources (and hence his money) on a wild goose chase.

Hi all,

does anyone know if it would be possible to extract parts (some Characters) from a Bitcoin QT Wallet?
I have extracted the hash key from my Bitcoin Wallet and tried tokens plus my own password lists via
btcrecover.py but it seems so my known password(s) are not working. :-(

It may be super helpful if I could get just some letters extracted so I could probably remember
my password....

Thank you in advance!

No, unfortunately either the full password is found, or not. There is no way to determine just 'part' of a password via a brute fore attack...

Just to clarify, I've been working at decrypting this wallet. I haven't succeeded yet.
I was busy with other things over the last few days, and I didn't reply to OP promptly when he asked for a status update.
I certainly haven't scammed him or taken his coins!

Hi,

One question on Ethereum wallet: a user need to send you the whole keystore json right?
There is no lucky feature like in Bitcoin to send you just a bit of the wallet?

Just some curiosity: how many guesses per second can you perform on a single instance?

Hi. That is correct, for both the ethereum presale and ethereum wallet formats, there is no way to send 'limited' information which enables trustless third-party decryption of a wallet.
On my rigs, guesses/second is in the range of 300,000/second for GPU based ethereum pre-sale wallet decryption (but much less for the mist/ethereum wallet format).

Cool story newbie. Dave have on countless occasions spent his hard earned time to recover much bigger wallets than you probably have and gotten much less than he deserves.

Beware, i sent Dave my ethereum pre-sale wallet months ago and he never replied. Now i can't even check the balance because he probably stole my ethereum. Biggest mistake I've made in my life.
Hi
I certainly haven't stolen your ethereum. Please let us know your public ethereum address, and we will all look at the balance.

I am contacted by many people every day about their wallets. Sometimes the information supplied is insufficient, or appears fraudulent, in which case I might not have replied to you.
If you have a valid wallet recovery question or issue, please send me another email, mentioning that you are user 'ethereumscrypt' from this forum, and I will take a look.
Cheers
Dave

I dont have an address. I used kraken's (https://www.kraken.com/ether/) pre-sale wallet tool to check my balance every once in a while. But last time i checked it said "could not fetch balance" and since i sent you my wallet months ago, i assumed you stole my ETH. The tool could have a problem, but i've used it for months and this is the first time it changed the message.

First i want to say i'm sorry for any misunderstanding i caused. My mail probably got into Dave's spam folder and that's why he didnt get it some months ago. He probably just skipped my reply on the thread then. It happens.

He replied promptly this time and he was on my case some hours later. I am very thankful for his service and he charged the fee he said he was going to charge (20%). Very recommended. ;D

Just wanna thanks to Dave.

I've contacted him a week ago for the second time. I had an old ppcoin wallet which password I couldn't remember. I had idea what the password would be and I sent him the required info. A few days later I got reply with the password. I paid him 20% of the wallet, fair price.
The first time I contacted him was in 2014. The situation was very similar - I had litecoin wallet which password I couldn't remember. I sent him the required info and soon after I got the password.
I hope that I don't have to use his services for third time. :), but if it's needed, I would contact him again without doubts.

Regards.

Hi. Sorry for not replying to you sooner. I did try to unlock your corrupted multibit wallet, but I did not succeed. I certainly didn't steal any coins from the wallet -- I could not even open it!
I will also reply to your email directly, and we will see if we can sort this out.

I am currently trying Dave as a last resort to get a reasonable amount of bitcoins decrytped from my Bitcoin core wallet. I ended up sending him the whole wallet because I couldn't figure out how to do the "part of the wallet" thing. His references sure are unquestionable. I hope it will stay that way  :)

Wish me luck lads!

If I were you, find a legitimate source of service and don't rely on that lousy services offered to you. Personally I am using a local wallet in my country which has a very good support from admins of the site and their services is always promt and honest to customers. You shouldn't listen to advices coming from newbie members because most of them who joined were spammers and sometimes gathering personal informations from forum members. Better luck next time and be sure to write down and have a back up of your wallet password and make a standard password combination for you to won't forget again.

And from there I can download the wallet again and I know my password for that wallet. I had a few coins worth a good amount today!

Any help would be appreciated.

Just leaving a review for my man Dave here!!

I lost the password to my Mist wallet last year around November time, and had emailed Dave politely to retrieve my pw.

It was only a measly 1.19 ETH, and Dave was honest in the sense, he said it was low value, and he was inundated with other wallets, thus did not know when he would get round to it.

I emailed him again twice, last being in February, and he unlocked it for me. I provided him part of the PW and he did the rest.

He is the real deal guys!! Charges a 20% fee and lets you keep the rest.

I would advise someone looking into his services to be patient with him and not flood him with emails, but politely request an update every few months.

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,

Laher

Just received an email from Dave at WRS tonight. About 6 months ago I had sent him the encrypted wallet file for a very old wallet I found on an old laptop. Dave tried unsuccessfully for a few weeks but eventually sent a reply saying that he had no luck decrypting the password, but he would put it on a back burner and keep trying. Fast forward 6 months and he tells me that he has found the password and decrypted the wallet. Just amazing integrity and professional service from Dave. I had written those funds off as a lost cause, but to my surprise Dave stuck with it and kept his word, only taking the pre agreed upon fee and leaving the remaining balance for me to keep. I just cannot say enough about WRS, I would absolutely use them again without question (although I hope I don’t have to) Thanks Dave

First time I heard about ethereum, I created account and download my genesis wallet with 20eth. Then I forgot about this wallet until 2017, when 1 eth = 700 to 1000$. And of course I forgot my pass.
So, I tried to call to my memory, but without a chance.
Then, in a april 2017 I asked Dave about decrypting my wallet and send him some patterns.
And today I receive a letter with my passowrd!

Dave Dave Dave, I love this man!

 This man is dedicated to his work and you can trust him more than yourself. I contacted him an year and a half ago and he didn't succeed. I thought the coins were lost. I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Dave contacted me with a success, the reward he took was small cause the wallet didn't had much in it and obviously he is doing this because he wants to help idiots like me😀 and love his job. Of course he could take all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for an year, but he didn't.
 He is the MAN guys , He is! If you forgotten your password, you can trust Dave 100000%. I though that there are no such guys anymore and he brought my trust to humanity again. (last week someone stole my raven coins with a faulty miner).
  Love you Dave 😀😀😀 Keep your wonderful service and work going.

Hi Dave,

a few years ago, I wrote Dave, what are my options for the forgotten password of the LTC wallet. By agreement, I sent an approximate password, which should work and wallet.dat. Recently, Dave surprised me that he managed to unlock the wallet  :o, incredible  ;D. Although the number of coins on it was not large, however, it took away exactly 20%, as it was written on its website.

Dave, respect, great work, a lot of successes in the future!

Let me tell you, Dave is a genius and an absolutely trustworthy person!
I sent him my wallet.dat containing 1000 Darkcoin/Dash in 2014, he could not crack it so I tried from time to time with bruteforcing on GPUs myself but without any success, which was frustrating because it turned out to be quite a fortune in the last years.
Now, after 5 years(!) I got a surprising e-mail from him, that he cracked my wallet, he took the agreed 20 % fee and nothing more, while he could have taken it all - I would not even have suspected him after so much time has passed. Soon after he sent me the passphrase.
Thanks again, Dave I hope you can help a lot of other people too, since this is a win-win business :)

I never wrote a review before in my life.  My native language is Spanish, but I think this is the lest I can do to help to increase the reputation of a great person that really helped me.
When I realize that I didn't write right my Ledger Nano S seed in my recovery phase seed sheet, I thought that all my funds lost without any chances to recover them.
I was very lucky to find Dave service researching online on serious forums like Bitcointalk and Reddithttps://walletrecoveryservices.com/.
Dave is a real gentleman and an honest person who treated me very well and accompanied me with professionalism throughout the recovery process of my seed.
After a week since I sent him my wrong seed he found the mistake and send me the correct information. That day I recovered my peace and smile.
He really deserves his % fee for his impressive and honest work.
It was an honor for me to meet and deal with Dave.
Thank you!

A quick note to say that Dave from Wallet Recovery Services got in touch, and with new tools solved my unaccessible account problem from a while ago. He took his 20% as agreed and which is more than fair. And left the rest for me to move somewhere safe. What a gem of a human.

A while back (2013) I bought some BTC and followed the advice about devising an unguessable pword and not writing it down..  Instead, I left clues for myself that I thought would be obvious.. a couple of years later when I tried to access my wallet I tried maybe 50 combinations and was unsuccessful.   Contacted the legendary Dave Bitcoin / https://walletrecoveryservices.com/ (https://walletrecoveryservices.com/) with little hope, and two years later he came back out of the blue to tell me he periodically revisited wallets he had been unsuccessful in cracking previously and had managed to crack mine.

 As others have said, Dave took his 20% and no more; he could have helped himself and to everything and I would have been none the wiser. To top it all by then I no longer had access to the wallet so asked him to transfer the coins to a newly created account.  They were there in minutes. ;D

 Dave comes across as polite and friendly :), he certainly is a person of integrity and is honest and true.  He is also incredibly talented. Recommended without hesitation.

Doesn’t it feel strange to speak in the third person? Why would anyone trust a review from a forum member with 1 post?
