    You couldn't get the wallet to work properly.
    You can request for help, the community will help you out..
    But its a very weird alternate claim that the wallet might be a scam. xD

    Anyways, are you using the latest version?

    Verify that you are typing in your 33 word seed EXACTLY as shown. Edit: Spelling mistakes will cause an error. If you think you misspelled your seed words when you wrote them down, you can verify the spelling here, as long as you were somewhat close when you wrote the words down.

    When you create your wallet using the 33 word seed, the password it asks you for is the password you want to use moving forward. It has nothing to do with a password you used on a previous wallet.

    Capitalization shouldn't affect the seed.

    That being said, for sending transactions, the wallet should be asking for your private passphrase that you set during the creation of the wallet, not the seed.

    You are right about capitalization - thank you for the correction!

    From slack discussion, I believe the issue here was he's trying to enter the seed where it's asking for the wallet passphrase. These things are not the same.
