Where did my lindens go?

Question

Sadly that is all you can do. LL have no way to know whether you were supposed to send the money to that person or not so they would not take money from his account and give it back to you.

Hopefully he turns out to be a decent guy and returns your money to you...*fingerscrossed* :)

i am sorry to hear your money was lost.

i would advice in the future to pull up your friend's profile directly from your friends list or calling card - that way you are certain it is the correct one, and not to rely on search, as names can be very similar.

checking the name more than once is also good advice. especially if it's an amount it's hard to part with.

As Peewee said, your only hope is that the person you accidentally paid is still active in SL, and is an honest and decent person who will give the L$ back to you. Linden Lab will not get involved.

There are many ways that a person can accidentally pay the wrong individual.

Your case was one of those. You IM'ed someone with a very similar name, and paid them without talking to them first, and it turned out to be the wrong person.

Another common problem is trying to pay someone while in a busy area, like a club, and when you click on what you think is your friend, you accidentally click on an invisible body part of someone between you, like a hidden set of wings, and pay them.

The best bet is to talk to the person before you pay them, so you're certain you got the right recipient. Be glad it was only L$500 (About $2.00 US), and not L$500,000 that you lost that way, and consider it a lesson learned.

I would also recommend you send him a Notecard...If as you say he is not very active, his IM`s may be capped. Also with a notecard you should get a message when he accepts it, which is always useful :)
