Hello Dear Bitcoiners,

Firstly I appreciate the Beautiful Block Chain Technology but after

Have anybody lost/got stollen their Bitcoins due to Fradulent activity and the best ways to get/retrieve them back.However the accounts have been locked but the damage was already done.I got to know that somebody transferred the Bitcoins into an external address only by myself after checking my account which had 0 coins after two hours of the transfer was done,immediately called my Wallet customer care where they locked my account to hold off on the further transactions but thought two hours was not too late to hold off the transaction but it was already done.4.5 BTCs just got off and my heart broke.

When I buy a Bitcoin it takes a week to be delivered into my account but when a fraud happens the transfer went on immediately Sad..Wish these scammers are punished and there is a little enhanced block chain technology to stop these Sad

Any advices/help in this regards is appreciated Sad

But always protect/safe guard your accounts,I would repeat the same message in each of my post as I know how painful it was to loose your hard earned money for some scammers Sad..I would have been happy if it was donated by myself for charity purpose rather being robbed/stolen by the scammers/hackers Sad

Sad

Sorry for you loss. However, this is nothing new, people need to understand the technology and risks. Never leave BTC on exchange wallet, web wallet. You need to secure your BTC and control your private keys with hardware wallet like Trezor, Ledger...I hope you will recover from this hard experience.

First, there is probably nothing that can be done to get your coins back.

But, can you tell us more about the service you used to buy your coins and where you were storing them?

Something doesn't sound right.  You said it took a week to get the coins deposited in your wallet?  And your wallet has a "customer care specialist"?

Bitcoin deposits can be slow, but not a week.  And most people store their coins in a desktop wallet or hardware waller, which would not have a customer care specialist.  Something sounds scammy about the people you were dealing with.  No one should have access to you wallet except you.  If you were storing them at an online service, there is a chance it was the online service that stole them.

Yes Hashface, I know nothing can be done but ray of hope always exists.
Bought the BTC from coinbase and were left on gdax , that is what I do and both coinbase and gdax do have limited customer phone support .As I again said dont mistake with the numbers you find on google, lot of scammers there. Make sure the numbers are posted on coinbase and gdax accounts.

Btw it takes a week time on coinbase to receive BTH or ETH atleast when I bought.However now Iam left with nothing with these unknown scammers/havkers whatever they are. It was so unfortunate that I didnt receive an enail either when the BTCs were transferred to an external adress,such a bad day for me.

As I again said ray of hope always exists and some Robinhood comes down to save the depressed souls who loose their hard earned money and kick away the scammers.

These scammers are so occupying the world that even google search is not able to controlthe way they pop in the search as legit.

Thankyou for your time and reply

It is very sad because i can really see that you are a nice guy, and 4.5 bitcoins are not a little amount of money, it is more than a house in some 3rd countries.
I am so sorry mate, but all this things are always happening to those who are never protecting their coins, and of course, their computers.
Maybe you can be infected by a rat, and they are going to stole your coins by that way.. I am sure that it was a hard-earned money, but you are going to recover soon.
good luck mate.

How did you lose your bitcoin? Did you not use any 2FA in your account to protect your account from getting hacked or your bitcoin getting transferred without your permission. Protecting your investment should be on the top of your list, setting 2FA could atleast slow down the hackers and you get notification if your bitcoin is getting transferred.
 
Also, it is not advisable to leave your bitcoins on exchanges for too long.

I cannot believe it.

Have you set up F2A protection of your coinbase/gdax account? Then it is impossible to transfer BTC without mobile phone....

Thankyou so much for all those kind and protective bump given.Iam not sure if the coins could ever be recovered or not but to hear kind words makes me feel better.

Two more things I would like to tell is that,not sure if it was a secuirty glitch or so,i didnt receive an email either after the transfer was done which usually I receive.And my 2fa authentication was on too but at times vn i login in the same computer it dont ask me for it.I tried to protect my hard earned coins in all possible ways but that few minutes when the time is not yours and was for the lucky hackers it was all gone.

@slavosome what is there you mean by not to believe it?
Nobody would like to come into a public forum and  and would like to waste everybody's time by giving their untruthful stories.My incident is completely genuine and iam here atleast to alert others to be safe and protective with their accounts and not to be a prey like me for the scammers.Jus a little bit care for the bitcoin society I have shown.

You've forgotten about the purpose BTC was invented. To allow people to handle their own money, to eliminate the middleman. You're saying that you called your wallet support and they locked it, so you were using an online wallet. In other words you voluntarily gave up the control of your coins.
If you want advice I'll give you one. Stay in control and you will be the only one to blame if you lose your money. Now you don't even know whose fault it was. Did they manage to hack you and get the passphrases or did that site leak it. Maybe one of their employees stole your money? Even if it was so you won't be able to do anything about it.

Hello DarkAngel,

At this point of time,yes I take the total blame for the trust I had on people.After all we are humanbeings with a normal thinking and being a woman,I was pretty cool brained soul and ended up learning a big lesson.

Imagine 4.5 BTCs for a person like me is a Huge loss,non-reversable and unrecoverable.

Big lesson learnt and spreading the awareness to my Co-Bitcoiners to not to fall a prey.My damage has been done ,hope a Robinhood comes his way !!

Sorry to hear about your loss, 4.5 BTC is a big amount and I am sure you feel sad. It is really not feasible to keep your BTC in an online wallet. I suggest you to invest in a hardware wallet which cost less than $100 to keep your BTC safe.

The blockchain technology is not weak, it is the endspoints (exchanges, wallets etc) that are weak in security. Bitcoin hacks have become sophisticated with time. But, where there's more regulation and accountability on exchanges, it will only become better. Presently, things are not good but it is going to get better

Thankyou Svelto,already my money has been drained I should wait for some more time to restart trading and put eveyrhting in a safe wallet once Iam back.To start it back I should wait sometime to earn and buy BTCs or somebody should give a humble donation Smiley)

Anyways thankyou for the concern.

Infact,frankly speaking it would have been nice of those scammers/fraudsters to beg and get money rather stealing somebody's BTCs this way.

I would have been generous to donate if they would have asked me rather stealing from me.

Now my situation is the other way round,after loosing the BTCs Sad(

You need to improve your account security, your bitcoin wallet. Somehow hackers can install malware on your computer

Thankyou Chip,will take all those precious advices if I start trading again,still coming out of the fact that Iam at a huge loss.
Trying to meditate and keep my mind cool,not so easy though after seeing such a huge loss.

Coming back into the normal world and feeling good after hearing such good words and still makes me feel and hope that there are nice people existing there still.

It's hard, I know, but you need to get up again and maybe, try to investigate a bit on what happened. Malwares, logging in insecure devices, this all make online wallets the worst way to secure your BTC and should avoid it if you have more than 1BTC. Good luck in future, hope you get back.
