In this article, we will discuss how to obtain a refund on Cash App if you have sent money to the wrong person, most likely a scammer. Below are the three options available to get your money back:

How to Get a Refund on Cash App

Here are the only three ways with which you can successfully get a refund on Cash App

1. Cancel the Payment

You can only cancel a payment if it is still pending. Payments on Cash App are usually instantaneous, and once they are processed, you cannot cancel them. However, if the payment is still pending, locate the transaction in your transaction history and click on it. If the transaction status shows as pending, you can cancel it by clicking on the “Cancel Payment” option.

Here’s a step-by-step procedure:

  • Log into your Cash App and click on the little clock icon to see the history of transactions.
  • Look for the transaction and click on the payment.
  • If you see that the status still says pending or under the pending transactions, you’re going to be able to cancel it.
  • You should click right where it says pending and it should give you the option to click cancel payment right there.

That’s it.

2. Request a Refund

If the payment has already been completed, you can try to request a refund. Go to your transaction history and locate the transaction. Click on the three-dot menu at the top and select “Request a refund”

Simply repeat the above process and click on the Clock icon to see your history, then click on the transaction, If it says completed, you can try this step

  • Click on the three dots menu at the top. And then click report an issue.
  • Then you select the suitable reason and send it to the recipient.
  • Cash App will give the recipient a notice that you’ve requested a refund and also urge them to refund because keeping money that wasn’t meant for them is against the Cash App terms of service.
  • The person will be left with the option to either grant the refund or cancel the refund request.

If you request a refund this way and the person refuses to send your refund, you can contact Cash App but I don’t guarantee you’ll get your money back.

This is because Cash App is not meant for buying and selling and is only meant for sending to people that you know, so there is no buyer protection.

But if this doesn’t work, you do have a third option.

3. Contact your Bank

If you sent a payment through Cash App from a linked bank account and not from your Cash App balance then you have got the third option of contacting your bank.

Through your bank, you can dispute the Transaction through Cash App and the bank will reverse the charge for you.

But here’s the catch. If your bank reverses the charge to Cash App, Cash App might make your account balance go negative and ask you to repay that money. If you don’t repay the money, your Cash App Account will likely be closed.

So, you’ve to carefully decide if you value your refund to your Cash App account, also I’ll advise you to trust whoever you’re dealing with on the payment platform.

How to Avoid Cash App Scams

There are three ways of making sure that you send your money to the right person.

  1. Never send payment to anyone you don’t trust
  2. The first way is to have the person send a request to you and then you send the money to them.
  3. The other thing that you can do is use the QR codes in the app if you’re physically together.
  4. Always make use of alternatives like PayPal for business transactions (goods and services payment)

That’s all.
