If you sent money to the old number of your recipient or another person with a different number, it would be best to reach out to the wrong recipient of the funds and ask for the money back.
Based on policy, we can only accommodate wrong send reversal requests for one reason: Only one digit in the wrong recipient’s mobile number is wrong. Please note that even if it's a single-digit error, the case will still be subject to review. If this is the reason, submit a ticket here so that we can review it.
