I was exchanging cryptocurrency with Changelly when I noticed after the fact that I put in the wrong address. I know I'm probably out of luck, but is there anything I can do to get it back? I have no affiliation with this wallet address. I have no idea how it even got in my clipboard.

    Note that there is malware that checks your clipboard contents and substitutes a hacker-controlled address. It could be that your computer has been infected with such malware. To check this, copy and paste some addresses and see if they were changed.

Crypto currency transactions are not reversible by design, and the addresses are anonymous, so you don't even know who to ask for the money back.

  • Right, I just didn’t know if someone had a method to figure out what happened and reverse it. Or maybe this was a common issue changelly was having.
