I don't know, but you can see the transactions here;
https://blockchain.info/address/1CaZEHtxg7g1ECurk5VL2G6zGUBjvD6odn

Hi DumbFruit,

Trying to reach out to you privately regarding this address.  Would you please temporarily allow newbie's to direct message you so I can give more context?

Thanks

I’d speculate he’s a bit busy(/happy) at the moment, and rightfully so!  Shocked

Sounds like a good outcome in what was a very bad situation from reading the thread.  To give more context for the reasons trying to make contact.  I’ve been helping out someone who recently had a sum of bitcoin stolen from them.  The user in question, was quite naieve and in asking for help, the attacker took control via teamviewer and stole his funds.  

Have quite a lot of info on the attacker already which is positive... in following the funds, there seems to be a connection with the address above so am hoping that DumbFruit may be able to sched some light on a transaction source (hacker —> unknown —> address above, guessing this was an exchange, given the amount).  It’s information, that will significantly help with this.

The person in question, I made contact with after hearing about the hack on Reddit... he’s in a bit of a bad way given the hack and it’s ruined his life at present so any help, greatly appreciated.  I’m new to bitcointalk so if anyone can bring this to DumbFruit’s attention with a view of allowing direct messages from newbies, then it would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Ugh. I was hoping my address would fall under the radar, but I suppose that was wishful thinking. In retrospect I should've proven I had access to the address and had Tradefortress send elsewhere. In my defense, I wasn't super confident he was going to send anything.

I'm not really eager to participate in tracing coins that ended up with me. I was partially reimbursed for a (bad) investment from years ago. If you believe that those two transactions were two steps away from a scammers address, then I guess you can follow up with Tradefortress.


Busy/happy is definitely a good way to put it. Coming into money so suddenly came with a set of problems I wasn't expecting to be dealing with, but they're definitely good problems to have.

By their (dumb) fruits shall ye know them indeed...

Sorry DumbFruit, I apologise for the inconvenience and do wish you the very best with what has been a great turnaround, am happy that you've had a good outcome from this.  It was google index'ing your address that brought me here.  If these are related to Tradefortress then it makes this thread even more so interesting.

It's a long shot and granted, in comparison to the volume you've been dealing with its not much, but for this kid it is a significant amount of money. He's spent years saving and investing in bitcoin, on what is a low salary, to then have it swept away in an instant.    With the existing information that we have, it could close a loop.  The transactions of interest are

hacker --> unknown --> your address
19kjtoCM9DvzQwbeyXZwe1w8vrGTYoMvwj (11BTC) --> 3KiziaS3vpq2voFCqwBR5VCc5Qa3XH1RXv --> 1CaZEHtxg7g1ECurk5VL2G6zGUBjvD6odn
1DPEhNjeGNXjYH7bxodLy8zGQegsPf8zU6 (8.45BTC) --> 3KiziaS3vpq2voFCqwBR5VCc5Qa3XH1RXv --> 1CaZEHtxg7g1ECurk5VL2G6zGUBjvD6odn

Again, I am sorry to trouble you, will you please elaborate on the source of 3KiziaS3vpq2voFCqwBR5VCc5Qa3XH1RXv ?

Before I go, for context, I'm not receiving anything for helping the individual in question, just another Bitcoin enthusiast.  When I spoke to him on reddit, and got chatting he was in quite a bad way and because of this, I've gone out of my way to try and help him.  So far, I've spent a lot of time (weeks) in summarising the events that took place and investigating possible leads.  It's a long shot but who knows, maybe with help he can also have a good outcome.

Ya the "unknown" is definitely Tradefortress, if that helps.

Thanks DumbFruit, very much appreciated.  Now to try and unravel what is going on here... it’s highly coincidental that the chain of one scam leads very shortly to another individual, associated with scamming.  Probably going to take me a little while to digest all the information and associated information there is on this person.  Seems to be mounds of context in this and other threads. 

Whoever this individual is, there has been some major mistakes made during said scam, a lot of identifying context leaked..  I am pretty confident that there will be a positive outcome on this one in time, albeit an arrest with or without return of funds.  If anyone has any context (links/information) of interest with TradeFortress then please share. 

TradeFortress, if you are reading this and are willing to elaborate on the source of the hacker funds then I’d welcome your side, after all, you do appear to be making resolutions.  For now, I give the benefit of doubt.
