Adding my wallet took over my unverified wallet, lost 70+bat

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.


Description of the issue:

I had 70+bat in my unverified wallet. I noticed there was a link to verify my wallet, which was previously unavailable. I clicked to verify my wallet, and it asked me if I already have an Uphold wallet. I clicked that I already have one, logged into it and my 70+ bat disappeared. Now I only see the amount I had in my wallet from Uphold before I connected my account to my mobile phone app.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. acquire some BAT in an unverified wallet
  2. Click the “verify” button (but do NOT click to create a new wallet/account with Uphold)
  3. Click that you already have an Uphold wallet and log into it.
  4. Notice the money you had before verifying is gone.

Expected result:

If you ask me if I already have a wallet, I expect that the money I have will go into the wallet I already have. I do not expect that my money will dissapear without warning and that my previously established wallet takes over my mobile without those BAT being added to it.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

This will help to speed up the troubleshooting. Thank you in advance!

@steeven - Why didn’t you tell me that? I knew something wasn’t right. I think they are asking me to reverify my wallet so they can steal it. Not fair.

Shooting out a reply since this is still outstanding and the issue should not be closed at the month mark.

Sorry this is off-topic but can someone tell what does this “cc” mean? I’m just curious! :sweat_smile:

I googled it and it says “Carbon Copy” but it doesn’t makes sense here :sweat_smile::sweat_smile:
