Transaction issue - Sent to a different wallet

Hi Support team.

I had to transfer some tokens to 2 different addresses (rewards for a competition).

The transaction #1 (with nonce 292) to send 315,000 DEXTF to 0x70f6c0914cbd424bca340216670aaf4aa447ce21 (address #1) was completed correctly:
0xb02da223b202d4ba2b729608d079c4c21a36e00f40621818eca847af44292f10

The transaction #2 (with nonce 293) to send 150,000 DEXTF to 0xB60d9F0D618Ff3514b9BC937125116036087fb47 (address #2) was completed, but Metamask passed the wrong address (it used address #1 instead of #2):
0x2afce385a74969c633d409542fd460de3730a0c77465f4eeada1262aa1c6c37f

For transaction #2 the Metamask Activity list shows the correct address #2 that I entered, but in etherscan the transaction #2 shows address #1 as receiver.

As a result the tokens have been sent to the wrong address.

How did Metamask mix up the addresses?

Thanks for your help.

I want to add that this exact error also happened to me once, the bug occurred when I sent 2 transactions one after each other but I did it fast.

If this is confirmed, it’s a bug to solve asap because MM is sending tokens to wrong addresses

Hey @dextf, can you tell me what version of MetaMask you were using when this happened? Was it on the browser extension or app?

Hopefully this will accelerate the process of finding the best solution so this won’t happen again. The state logs provided to Helpdesk support can further help with that, as they shouldn’t be shared publicly on the forums here. Does that sound good for you?

Browser plugin v. 10.14.7 (Firefox).

Ok, I will also open a ticket with the support team.

Hello @dextf , welcome to MetaMask support,

As the case may be , you may have clippers on your computer that swaps addresses when you copy your wallet address , it’s a virus . You may want to scan your computer for possible malware’s first to be sure that it’s clean . Then check for next solution is that doesn’t work .

Thanks for the suggestion. I am on a Mac, and I could not find any reference to clipper malwares on Mac OS, nevertheless I scanned the laptop and it is clean.

Also worth noting that the funds have been sent to a known address (address #1 of transaction #1 - refer to description).
