One thing that you know is that you did not send the bitcoin <with a typo> to a address without a owner. <because the bitcoins have been moved by the owner of the other address to another adress>

If it was a random address and it had a owner, ..

It is pretty unlikely to send coins to an address with a typo. Addresses include a 32 bit checksum.
This means: 1 out of 4.294.967.296 addresses with a typo included actually is a valid address.

The chance of misstyping an address and the address still being accepted because its valid, are less than 0.00000002 %


Now multiply that probability with the probability of sending to a random address which does have an owner.
You could pretty much say thats 0 chance.

OP, I'm afraid your bitcoin is long gone and I think it the work of the seller because the wallet was new address. Besides, only 1transaction was ever sent to account 1ALVchc4GFVwRFV58PdtdddcCmCAyS7G6b on 2018-03-04 20:47:27 and the same transaction was moved the next day at 2018-03-05 01:57:30. My advice for you is to be more careful next time.

HI,

I am very new to Bitcoin. I have an account with Coinbase. While on line I tried to make a purchase, I sent the Bitcoin to an address for deposit. The Bitcoin went through the address and has bounced around, a total of 1106  confirmations to be exact.. When I track it, it says spent at the last address. I came across the vendor on another site, I spoke with him and he said it wasn't his address. But he would work with me.

Is it possible to get my Bitcoin back? I would be happy to pay a bounty in Bitcoin if I can get it back.

Thanks!
No it's impossible to get back your bitcoin. In cryptomarket if you send your btc to any person then you can't get it back so beaware of it and next time be careful about it.And in this case i think you send bitcoin to any scam person so forget your btc and in future Never send to other person like this.If that member is from this forum then you can give him negative feedback so it will helpbmany peoples to save their btc.

I'm just new in here and just wanted to know is there a way to see if your coins had been lost or stolen?
thank you

In general you can allways check through any bitcoin scanner, whether there are coin movements on a certain bitcoin address. But make sure, you are not typing your private key into it. Just your puplic address.

How I wish i could tell you there is a way to get your bitcoin back but the hard truth is that any transaction done on the block chain is an irreversible transaction. Once the transaction have been made you cannot change your mind and say, you want to take back your bitcoin. You will have to be careful next time since the person is claiming he did not received any bitcoin.

lossing bitcoin is only possible option is to figure out where you got that address which you sent to. if you can find out the owner then you may ask him to send it back. otherwise if you copied a wrong address or for example if you have a clipboard-hijacker malware on your computer which changes copied bitcoin addresses, then you are out of luck....

Sadly you lost that bitcoin, every transaction is irreversible. Please check the exact address you sent, if it is correct then maybe he cheated on you. This is a lesson for future transactions, you should be more careful.

 I only can tell you careful next time when sending BTC, remember to protect your PC/laptop with antivirus, I read some topic and people talk about bitcoin address changing when they send btc after copy paste, so always double check address.
