I sent a transaction from my wallet...3 confirms...thot it was the correct Send To address, but NOT.  So, is there a way to track where it ended up?  2.5btcs

Sent to Address: 15FS7LRtzNtojsCp2gYx7jHfWZEADGA2pz
Hash 160:    2e9b4966cae2d26d5cd4914472182b7ebddf1674

I have no clue on how to track this stuff, if at all possible.  Hoping it went to something else I am doing, fingers crossed. But it didn't go to where I wanted it to go.  Oddly the Receiving address changed in mid-stream, so the address I used, didn't connect with where I wanted it to go and the 2.5btcs went somewhere.
Thx, in advance, Lana

I still see 2.5BTC in that wallet address 15FS7LRtzNtojsCp2gYx7jHfWZEADGA2pz it didn't go anywhere. You will see if that wallet send funds to another wallet by going to blockchain.info and enter the wallet address and you'll see any outgoing transaction there. So far I only see 1 transaction and total amount in that wallet is 2.5BTC

Not sure if I am doing this right, thank-you for that response...so, is the btc sitting at Blockchain? can I get it back? cause it is not in my wallet.

Here is some more:
Unspent Outputs 15FS7LRtzNtojsCp2gYx7jHfWZEADGA2pz
Total: 2.5 BTC


33 confirmations

HOW DO I TELL BLOCKCHAIN TO SEND THE 2.5 BACK HOME, DINNER IS GETTING COLD?

For starters... blockchain.info is NOT "the blockchain"... blockchain.info is just a website that offers bitcoin related products and services (like a webwallet, block explorer etc). It confuses things greatly if you use "blockchain" when referring to "binfo" Tongue

With regards to your initial query, there is no real way of telling where the bitcoin address 15FS7LRtzNtojsCp2gYx7jHfWZEADGA2pz resides... it could be in someone's blockchain.info webwallet, it could be on a mobile wallet, it could be a paper wallet or it could be in a desktop wallet owned by a housewife in Timbuktu...

Additionally, you say that "the Receiving address changed in mid-stream"... this is not technically possible. That address is the address that was included in the transaction signed by your wallet software.

It is possible that if you were copy/pasting addresses that you either pasted the incorrect address, or you have one of those sneaky malware programs that monitors the clipboard for bitcoin addresses, and when you go to paste, it pastes the address of the malware writer Undecided

As to your last question... unfortunately, there is no way to reverse/cancel/chargeback Bitcoin transactions... once they are confirmed, that's it... they're set in stone. The only way to get these bitcoins back is to have the person who controls the private key for 15FS7LRtzNtojsCp2gYx7jHfWZEADGA2pz, create a transaction that sends them back to an address that you own.

Can you please tell us what wallet software you were using when you created your transaction?

Hi, thank you the clarifications on terminology. I sent from Exodus.io. The address didn't change mid-stream, bad choice of words. The address I copied and pasted and sent to changed AT the receiving end where I was sending it to...I have sent a message to their customer service stating what happened. God willing and the creek don't rise, I will hear something from them.  But what does 'Unspent Funds' mean...they left my wallet but didn't get to their destination?

How do you know the address changed at the receiving end? were you sending from an Exodus wallet to another wallet that you control?

If so, that is likely to be the reason the address changed... Most modern wallets try to avoid "address re-use" to aid in privacy. Basically, the wallet generates an address and when that address receives a payment, the wallet will automatically generate a new address for the next transaction.

So where were you sending to? a wallet you control?

Hi,

It is very bad an unlucky situation and there are no options to get it back. Anyway you can hope that somebody who notify your transaction will send it back (if he good person). Or you can try to find this bitcoin address here on bitcoin talk maybe somebody used it in signature campaigns etc. Anyway it is very small probability that you get it back or find bitcoin address holder...  Sad

Good luck.

There are three likely possibilities here:

1.  You intended to copy and paste the correct address, but you accidentally failed to "copy" (perhaps hit the wrong keys or clicked the wrong menu option).  An old bitcoin address that you had previously copied was still in your computer's clipboard.  When you "pasted", you accidentally pasted this old address without realizing it.  If this happened, then this is an address that you got from somewhere.  An address that you probably sent to in the past, or thought about sending to in the past.  If you can search through all your transaction history and everywhere that you recently thought about sending bitcoins to, you may be able to determine who owns that address and ask them nicely to send it back. Hopefully they will be honorable and reimburse you for your mistake. If they are not, then there will be no way to get your money back.

2. You pasted the correct address, and exodus.io has a bug that caused it to swap in a different address when it created and signed the transaction.  If this happened, then you'll need to contact someone that supports exodus.io.  Hopefully whomever is responsible for the bug will be honorable and reimburse you for your loss due to their poor programming.  If they are not, then there will be no way to get your money back.

3. Your computer has malware running on it.  The malware identifies bitcoin addresses on the clipboard and replaces them with addresses that are under the control of the person that wrote the malware.  If you paste an address from your clipboard without paying attention, then you don't notice that the pasted address is not the same as the copied address.  You send the transaction and the scammer/hacker/thief ends up with your bitcoins.  If this happened, then you aren't going to be able to get the bitcoins back.  The thief has them and they aren't likely to voluntarily give them back.  You should immediately stop using that computer for anything that would provide access to your bitcoins or finances. You should get the malware cleaned off, and you should change your passwords pretty much everywhere.  While it is likely that the malware is designed to ONLY replace bitcoin addresses on the clipboard, there is a possibility that the malware has been reporting your activity, accounts, and/or passwords to the thief as well.
