This is the third time I have seen this post from the same person it's spamming the forum on my first comment I ask him to change his post to a more understandable version ,but he is not doing it i doubt if he really is honest he just want to solicit bitcoins to all of us  

he also posted it on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/46fcfo/wwwwalletrecoveryservicescom_scam/

I asked questions about his story and clarified Dave couldn't steal his coins if he followed instructions.

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

I guess it's just a ploy to get coins. Albeit it can't be very successfull I assume becuase the story is really hard to understand.


The poster just want to solicit bitcoin to all readers,on the first two phrase he is telling his story on how he lost his large amount of bitcoin and and how unsuccessful to recover it then he post his bitcoin address for readers to send a donation,this could just be a make up story..

What make-up? About what you speak. I provided proofs, there are all files which I sent Dave and correspondence is visible. I don't need your coins. The person who provided to me a wallet demands return of the sum. And dave doesn't hurry to send or at all decided not to give.

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.

Thank you Dave for recovering my ETH presale wallet!
Got my ether minus the 20% fee!
I wrote my password down wrong, and I was lucky that the actual password was very similar.
Thank you again.

I had an Orbitcoin wallet with pretty much ORB in it... and a lost password  Sad
Dave was my last hope to unlock the wallet. And he did!  Grin

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.

May I ask how much fee he collected for this task? I imagine there is no flat rate but instead percentage fee based on amount of bitcoin stored in a wallet, right?

I contacted Dave via email on March 17 and he never replied, i tryed to contact him 10 days ago and he didnt replied neither. He has my eth wallet and while he hasn' t steal my eth (yet) he could if he wanted to.

If you ever try to contact him, be aware of this.

Hi,
i have registered here to review dave from http://www.walletrecoveryservices.com/ , cause his service was nice and fast and friendly.



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 Sad

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 !

For the OP, I smell a scam as nobody will give you can not really help for that .

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.
