I thought I unloaded last portion of my stash of bitcoin last year. Not really. It turned out I have this old bitcoin wallet that I have forgotten on my computer. When I opened it, there was some bitcoin left there. I guess this is how it feels like when someone found out they have won the lottery.
From Heaven to Hell in Hours
The euphoria ended shortly afterwards.
When I try to transfer the bitcoin out to an online service to cash it out, my passphrase was not accepted.
I actually panicked.
Until I resolve this problem I cannot use the bitcoin I have in this wallet at all. After so many attempts to guess what is the correct passphrase, I finally gave up.
There is Hope
Suddenly, I recall reading about a service that they will help you recover your bitcoin. There is no upfront fee, just a percentage of your wallet if they manage to recover the bitcoin for you.
So I looked it up and found Dave Bitcoin and his bitcoin recovery service walletrecoveryservices.com
I contacted Dave through email and explained my situation to him.
After just a few email exchanges, I have decided to give Dave a try.
I struggled a bit with the decision originally because:
1. the fees may sound steep at 20% but in reality it takes a lot of computing power to brute force your way into finding the correct password
2. even if Dave managed to crack the wallet, I have no assurance that he would return the bitcoin to me if he plans to runaway with the bitcoin
However, the fact that the bitcoin in the wallet is as good as nothing if it cannot be accessed anyway. That understand helps me make up my mind.
My Wallet is Saved
The rest of the process was easy. I send an email to Dave with the bitcoin wallet, my knowledge about the password and stated my agreement to his terms and conditions.
Dave is fast. Within a day, he helped me recover my bitcoin already.
Literally, I get my lottery ticket back.
Everything is done as promised professionally.
Bitcoin community is lucky to have Dave offering such a valuable service.
If you encounter a problem like mine, I highly recommend that you contact Dave Bitcoin.
