How to get refund on Cash App if sent to wrong person?

There is only one legitimate way to get a refund from the recipient to whom you have sent money accidentally. And that method involves sending a request to the person who accidentally has received your money. However, it totally depends upon the person (whom you sent the refund request) whether or not he received your request. What makes the situation worst is the fact that Cash App has no control over recipients’ discretions. With that being said, I mean, if the recipient rejects your request and denies to refund your money then you are left with no option but to contact us or Cash App customer service. We will discuss later how you can contact the Cash App customer service and get a refund for accidental payments. Let’s first find out the steps to request money from the person to whom you have sent money mistakenly.

  • So, as a first step, launch Cash App.
  • Tap the watched-shaped icon – “Activity” tab.
  • Scroll down and up to find and select the payment that you think is wrong.
  • Now check the status of the payment.
  • If the status is “Pending” then consider cancelling it.
  • If the status is “Successful” then tap the “Request” button to request a refund from the recipient.
  • Once you tap the “Request” button, the recipient will be notified.
  • Now it depends upon the recipient whether he/she accepts your request or not.
