I bought a little under half a bitcoin a few days back from a vendor who sent it in 4 transactions. The last 3 showed up in my incoming transactions but never confirmed, and the hash numbers brought up nothing on any accelerator or info site. They didn’t even show up for the vendor, and the funds were never removed from his account. After a couple days the vendor resent the same amount and the transactions went through fine. Now, I’m trying to use the coin but I can’t transfer it out because GreenAddress doesn’t allow you to make any transactions until all previous ones have 6 confirmations. The transactions don’t exist, so they should never confirm. How can I get around this to use my coin? Is it lost? Here are the hash numbers in question: 021de0a9529da8cf4ec05d445bc1906efcf224d589cedfd330d883ae41e3695c

How would I go about deleting or clearing these transactions from GreenAddress? Please help me as soon as possible and thank you in advance

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

So the vendor sent their BTC to you, but the transactions did not confirm and were dropped from the network.

They then resent the same amount from the same address to you and they "went through". Please clarify what you mean by that. Did the transactions confirm? Can you give us the transaction IDs of the transactions that did go through? Maybe even a screenshot of your wallet tx list.

If a transaction has been dropped from the network, it is like it never existed. Nothing relies on it being confirmed. So I'm not sure why green address is reporting this. Maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture.

Here are the hash numbers in question:

021de0a9529da8cf4ec05d445bc1906efcf224d589cedfd330d883ae41e3695c

dcbcbbcb963960262589ccca393c39fa5f5456ecf3870896cc8ecc37c119773e

Those transactions have been removed/double spent.
This means these TX's won't go through -> you won't receive them.
It was either a mistake by the vendor, or he did this on purpose and scammed you.

You should definetly contact him and show him the ID's.
He can't deny that you never received those coins.

Where did you buy them? Did you buy them from a 'private' person?
