Brute forcing mnemonics is not going to work simply because then everybody could do it.
In fact, brute forcing mnemonics is the slowest way to get to your coins.
It's way faster to target the address directly, but even then you don't stand a chance and have to rely on pure luck.
The only thing left will depend on how you reinstalled the new operating system and what you did with it afterwards.
If you did a slow format everything will be gone, but if you did a fast format everything that was not overwritten will still be there.

Then how this guy did it then if it's impossible?

1) I used laptop 3-4 weeks after reinstallation so recover data is probably poor chance, plus I use SSD, not HDD, so I probably overwritten the data already.

So you have absolutely nothing from the old wallet, no seed, no backup, nothing?
What wallet.dat you actually want to "crack" if you don't have the old one?
Do you understand that if finding the private key (or seed if you want) for a random address would work, no address would be safe and Bitcoin would have been long dead?

I hope that I've misunderstood something. And sorry for your loss...

It's impossible to recover your 12 words seed if you don't know most of its words.

Your only chance would be to try and recover the wallet file and decrypt it.
You mean recover the wallet folder I had before reinstalling windows?
24  Bitcoin / Wallet software / 12-word recovery phrase - LOST. 2k who can help on: September 11, 2020, 10:30:37 AM
Hello,

I have used Atomic Wallet on my laptop, unfortunately I did not saved my 12-word recovery phrase. (Yes I am dumb). My laptop crashed suddenly and I had to do a reinstall of windows. I have not used this wallet for a while until one person sent me a lot of money, even I had new wallet..

1) I used laptop 3-4 weeks after reinstallation so recover data is probably poor chance, plus I use SSD, not HDD, so I probably overwritten the data already.

2) As I researched I believe the only chance is Check mnemonics to get 12 phrase recovery?:

There are 2048 words https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0039/english.txt

I need to recover my 12 phrase recovery, I know my wallet address, but I can not remember any word that was in my 12 phrase recovery.

You look up the word's index in the dictionary I linked above to convert it to a binary number, then you run the BIP39 algorithm, which converts a number to a private key, then you use that private key to generate the address (https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/how-to-create-a-bitcoin-wallet-address-from-a-private-key-eca3ddd9c05f/) and compare that to the known address.

Practically: you just have to run the specialized software. Either Hashcat (hashcat.net), or this https://github.com/johncantrell97/bip39-solver-gpu

The hashcat command will probably look like this:
hashcat -a 3 -m 11300 wallet.dat

I need that a company or someone that knows who has super computer like google has it, to recover my 12 phrase recovery..

Let me know your thoughts, possibilities or any other ideas, I know the password of my wallet btw.. Transactions.. Wallet Address..

Who can help me, I will honor 2k$ ..


Thank you.

We chatted on Skype and I have created group chat with me, him and my boss. He agreed to send the gift cards upfront so we will pay them after we use. Everything seemed to be fine.

Later in evening my boss wrote me in pm, did you received 5k gift cards, I said what are you talking about?

This scammer created another Skype group named "Deal Made" with him, my boss and another skype named my name and same picture (which was supposed to be me).

My duplicate Skype wrote to that group to my boss "I have received 5k gift cards everything is ok, you can send him the payment".

If you do not believe, I can send all the logs, screenshots. Why should I lie, lol. I wast just amazed of this next level shit, plus he tried me to scam 14 days ago with another skype name Coin_Trader

He is next level scammer. Made duplicate Skype of mine, with same picture, same nickname and wrote to my boss that we have received gift cards and she can pay to him, never saw this scamming method.

What happened::
I have created a thread that I am looking to buy e-gift cards. He contacted me thru Skype. I have all the chats with him, so if anyone needs I can attach them here. I was naive that I trusted him even though I saw his Trust on this forum, however he claimed his account was banned and auction is not scam lol.. So I have bought from him gift card and once the payment was done - he disappeared. I hope karma will do the job Smiley
