Never received my ETH after ICO

Hey there,

this post might sound weird/sketchy/shady, but, here's the issue:

I invested 0.1 or 0.2 into the ETH ICO back in the day and completely forgot about it, until it came out.

After it came out, I still didn't check it, for some reason.
The keys were probably sent to my email, and also probably auto-deleted by my filter settings.

All I'm asking is if it's possible to resent my priv keys to the same email that I provided back then?
Who should I ask about this?

Thank you for your attention and your time.

    You should have received an email from "[email protected]" titled "Ethereum Ether Sale Backup Wallet".

    This email had as an attachment a pseudo wallet file called "ethereum_wallet_backup.json" with the private key for the then-future address. The private key was itself encrypted using a passphrase that you provided during the registration process.

    They did not keep a copy of that private key, wallet or passphrase.

    The mail was rather clear:

    Please ensure that a main copy and one or more backup copies of this wallet file are stored separately and securely. If you lose access to all copies of your wallet, you will not be able to access your purchased ether and it is not possible for the Ethereum team to reconstruct a lost wallet.

    I think your only hope is to find that mail with its attachments.
