Trying to send some BTC payments and don’t know my private key. Can anyone help me and tell me it or tell me how to get it.

If you never had the private key for the bitcoin account you are trying to use, then you can't just recover or "find" it. This is one-way algorithm: private key -> public key. You can get public from private, but not another way around.

  • Isn’t there sites where you pay like 0.03 and you can search any wallets address private key?? Or is that a total scam?

  • It's a scam. If the site could find the private key for any account, they would be rich by guessing the keys for known accounts with a lot of bitcoins. It will take millions of years to brute-force it.
