To get the benefit of these offers sometimes we do unlimited transactions blindly and by mistake, we send money to the wrong person in this case you can use the following 4 ways to get your money back.
So How To Recover Money Sent To The Wrong Paytm Number?
Since the bank is not an intermediary as the transfer happens between two wallets, reversal is not possible. So first step you need to do is take a screenshot of the message you have received on your mobile phone “money is transferred to XXXXXXXXXX mobile number”. Now take a screenshot of your incorrect transaction from Paytm App. These two things will help you in the later stages to act as proof. If the receiver is honest he/she will return your money immediately otherwise you can use the following steps to recover your money:
Contact User Of The Mobile Number(Call/Message):-
The first step you have to take immediately call to the owner of that number and tell him the entire story. Request him to return your money as you send it accidentally. If he/she knowingly not receiving your call or not responding to your messages you have one more option call him again and again or use multiple numbers until he returns your money. Here you will have one more advantage of KYC. Due to KYC, it is compulsory to receive money from any Paytm user, that particular person’s KYC is also done because he received your money successfully and 99% Paytm users do KYC of their Main Paytm number only. That means the number on which you accidentally send money is a primary number of that user.
Contact Paytm Customer Care:-
If the above solution does not work for you, Simply contact Paytm Customer Care. Explain to them your problem in detail. In Paytm FAQ they have mentioned that “If you accidentally sent money to the incorrect number you can contact us and we will try to solve your problem”. But there are very fewer chances of getting the solution from Paytm Customer Care because they don’t have the authority to directly reverse your money from any other person’s Paytm Wallet/Bank Account. Go to Paytm passbook and select incorrect transaction there you will see Transaction Id and Need Help button.
Use Social Media Platforms:-
The third way to get your money back is to use Social Media Platforms like FB or WhatsApp. Add number with specific detail along with all necessary and valid Snapshots and tell your friends to spread this message everywhere. This option may be not suitable for many of the users but still, there are more chances of getting your money back.
If all the above options do not work for you, here is the final call that you can take. If your amount is really big then contact the police and they will definitely help you to solve your problem. Just take all messages, screenshots, Call logs, Paytm CC call recording, etc and visit your nearest police station.
So, guys, these are the 4 ways which will help you to get your money back sent to the wrong Paytm number. In the future, before sending money to anyone check number twice it’s always better to take precautions in advance.
