I forgot my password to my Bitcoin wallet the other day, so I set about in desperation to find out if it was possible, to get it unlocked; I had (4.5 Coins) In this wallet, and Bitcoin prices were surging.

After reading other recommendations online,I came across ‘walletrecoveryservices.com ’, I then went to the official website and started following the instructions, I was working through them when I suddenly encountered a problem the (Pywallet.py dumpwallet) was not working via the ‘CMD’ on my computer.

I sent Dave an E mail telling him the problem, he then responded and suggested that I could send him the full (Walet.dat) File Instead of just the (Safe part), now I did not have much choice at this point, I could either just leave it unlocked or take a chance and send it to some person, who I have never met before.

With out trying to insult the guy, I explained that this was not only my investment but also my family’s, to is reply “I won’t scam you” ...So rather nervously I took the risk and sent it to him, with suggestions what I thought my password might be, within Aprox 24Hrs, he replied back telling me he had took a charge for cracking the password and left the remaining amount in my wallet.

Now I’ve have took the time to write this because reputation is important here for businesses like this and the Bitcoin community, Dave could quite easily have stole all my money, never to be seen again.

I would like to take the time to not only commend the honesty shown here but also recommend him to other people in the future.

Thanks Dave.

Great!  Everybody send your wallet.dat to this person.  Someone with 5 posts said it's legit.

You do know that someone can edit a wallet.dat file into a watch-only wallet.dat which means that he can secretly take off with your money and you won't know until you went and spent it.

Also your wallet.dat shouldn't be in the hands of anyone else.

I know this guy is a sock, but I want to let the other newbies know how much of a scam it is.


I've already sent some of my coins, that he kindly returned back to me into a new wallet,as a safety precaution, I've also invested the rest of in into Alt currency's, none of that would have been possible, if he had fleeced me for my 4.5 coins, I like to see how many folks would have done this for me, in the same situation.

I believe the leader in this space is walletrecoveryservices.com

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.

No I never recommended in sending the full (Walet.dat) File to anyone, but you can send part of one, without revealing important information, if you've forgot your password,the only thing I recommended was the service he provided in dealing with me...'Honesty'.

I'm glad you have your coins back!  Cheesy

How much did he charged you for opening the wallet? How long did it take?

I think he E mailed me the following day with my Password, so say 24Hrs, he charged me 20% of my wallet.

it probably was

what this guy seems to do is take any information you DO remember about your passphrase and uses that to configure a targeted brute force

unless it is a very elaborate hoax or a long con he seems to be doing it honestly and successfully, there have been several threads where people seem to have got their money

Its definitely a business people should get into there are tons of people whom are locked out of their wallets. But If I was Dave and I was dealing with a 500,000 dollar US wallet, IDK...

obviously the hoax or long con is always a possibility

but there is certainly money to be made if someone can develop a reputation for performing this service reliably

believe it or not, there are some honest actors in the bitcoin ecosystem

Do you mind sharing with us the addresses that the 4.5 BTC were in?

Before blindly shooting Dave, do some research on what his service is about and the way he operates.
It's legit.

These days I always start out by seeing if a domain name is obscured, and seeing if I can easily identify the principle parties as individuals.  People who don't try to hide this information probably have less of an intention of running off with customer's funds in the future, and it seems empirically to be one of the more reliable methods of gauging a propensity to scam these days.

I would not expect someone running a wallet recovery service to have a very compelling need to remain anonymous.  The customer values they are holding at any given time should normally be low and unpredictable.

I've no need to utilize such a service and not expectation that I will (I can solve corruption problems as well as anyone if I need to learn, and my critical passwords are uncrackable) so I'm not going to bother to check up on this service.  But it would be interesting none-the-less.

When dealing with bitcoin, I have found the scam or the hack or the crash or the (negative adjective here) is the rule rather than the exception.

With the exception of the guy I bought a 1957 dime off of here from a year ago.  I sent him coins, and he sent me a dime in the mail that was really neat.
