I sent the difference back as soon as confirmed, just wandering what is the most anyone here has received by mistake? Stories please  Grin

Some one owed me nearly 0.18BTC back in 2014, but he sent the funds to a very old address that I didn't know I still had access to, the nice dude sent me another 0.18BTC. Once I found a backup of the old wallet I sent him back his 0.18BTC.

I have never ever received something like this by mistake. It's good that I haven't though, it would just be some extra work for me in order to return them to the real owner.

I received $10 extra from a member last week via PayPal and I refunded him the payment. Lost 50 cents due to the fee of PayPal but I dint want to keep any extra money with me. I don't like when members send extra as they aren't even ready to bear the fee for their mistake. It's better they check before they send.

Funny but i don't remember receiving any btc by mistake, but there were many cases of deals that went wrong, or were canceled for whatever reason, where
i refunded the other party. The amount in question was mostly upto 2 btc.
Any chance we can get the tx of the transaction in question, and the name of the escrow used ? It's a pretty large mistake..

cheers

So now what are you going to do with  the rest of the BTC you have received?
Will you return them? if not you can always donate some for charity!

There are still good people In the world for the ones who return the mistaken funds.
They believe in universal karma, it will come back to get them or enchant them for their good deeds.

That's pretty kind of you. I wonder what % of people would return it back. I mean what are the chances something would happen to you if you left with the money and ran? This is bitcoin after all. Im trying to do some loaning business and im scared to do it because apparently people is scamming all the time and nothing happens to them.

in my case its the other way around, I double sent a BTC to an address
i was so sleepy that night but I have to send BTC to 4 different addresses
in the end 1 address did not receive anything while 1 address received twice of the BTC I owe
luckily the person who received twice the amount returned without hesitation
