Hi
I don't know where to begin.
I am an honest person even to the point that I have found money on the ground at work and turned it into
security in case someone came looking for their $20....just in case that was all they had.

  I may be acting to much like a stereotypical girl but I
am in tears as I write this post.  I know some people may laugh at others misfortune or call me stupid (already been called that tonight)
 but if there is anyone honest who knows what to do or how to
track down what happened, please let me know.

I recently started talking to an online trader who got me started in BTC.  I won't say his name bc part of me wants to believe it was not him so
badly.  He helped my create my two accounts...local bitcoins.com and Blockchain.  I changed my passwords as he directed....he said he was connecting my
wallet to his atomizer or miner...something like that.  So, moving forward a week....I started buying my own BTC.
Today I had spent nearly 9k on btc and was meeting a local btcbank company employee for a final purchase of 6k.  When it was all said and done there was
.085601288 total btc in my blockchain wallet. 

I can see where the last purchase of 6k was recieved and within 1 minute it was sent back out leaving me less than 1 dollar in the account.

It went to 1Ej9nEXf2nvYgFk6zxUFXQxr5uKQRdokUY

Someone said he may have created a backup of my wallet...
Someone said I could check the IP address somehow.

I am not technical and would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

First thing first, what wallet does your fund was stolen? from blockchain or LBC?
He helps you to create an account? what account? blockchain? Like he access the account? if yes then he might copy your seed or the recovery phrase on your account and even you changed the password of the account as long as he has the copy of your seed then he can still access your funds or all btc that you will send to your blockchain wallet.

You should research first how bitcoin wallet works before risking and sending funds there.
Now, I dunno if you can get his IP address unless he login to your blockchain wallet and since there's an email confirmation with the ip address who want to login the account then you can see it there if no, then there's no way to get that.

... He helped my create my two accounts...local bitcoins.com and Blockchain.
At this point, he had your backup seeds/phrases and could effectively "clone" your wallets whenever he felt like it. Effectively, he had access to ALL your private keys! Shocked

You were totally compromised before you deposited ANY coins. Undecided

I changed my passwords as he directed....
This would have done nothing to stop him. As he had access to the backup seeds/phrases, he could regenerate your wallet and spend your coins without needing your password

he said he was connecting my wallet to his atomizer or miner...something like that.

Nothing you can do honestly.
Accept the loss and move on. Take this as a lesson.

Even if you confront him about it, he will deny it.

Hi OP!
You are not defeated instead cheated. Don't feel down but try to find the mistake that led you to this condition.

It's just money, so you'll get it all back eventually. However, losing money the way you did is always a hard pill to swallow and the aftertaste would stay on for days if not weeks.

As what most people mentioned here, you may already have been compromised right at the start when the wallet was created. If that person has the seeds for that wallet, changing your PW would not have helped as the seeds would allow him access to your wallet. You don't want to accuse him but his actions are pretty suspect so he should be No.1 on your most probable suspect list.

To generate your bitcoin address, did you create it online or did you use a software - like electrum (https://electrum.org/) to get one. Or was your btc address generated through his bitcoin wallet and was it the the bitcoin.com password that he asked you to change.

If he gave you a btc address from his wallet, that address was under his control and he can readily check if funds are there. If he was the one who created the btc wallet for you, he may have kept the seeds to your wallet which he can actually use to access your funds.

Doing an IP trace may get you somewhere but it'll cost some money to pay a tech guy to do the sleuthing for you (and the results may be suspect). One other option is to act blind and do an entrapment on the suspect. This will involve getting in touch with local authorities who deal with thefts like this and would be quite long and complicated.

If you need to brush up on wallets, this article may help:
