Hello,

A hacker (I don't know how) got access to my main e-mail account and from there, he could recover all my secondary e-mails. Unfortunately, I had setup 2FA for most of my accounts but not all of them and he could steal a couple of btc from me (they were in two blockchain.info wallets without 2FA, only e-mail verification...)

I know it's my fault and I can't do anything about it.

However, following the money (the hacker does many dummy transaction to many bitcoins accounts used almost only to forward the money) bitcoins end up in:

1) An address that has received millions of $. Likely an exchange.
2) An address with ONE transaction and the equivalent to 139.000$. This money is sent to two new addresses: an exchange (I think) and a bitcoin address with 80.000$ with this tx only.

Would it be possible to identify the addresses and contact the exchange to block this motherfucker or something like this?

Addresses where money ENDS:

1) https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/37FQTRzACeC2Se7pgXN1WJH7YA75QsHNXJ
2) https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/1JuNT9DjmQxXbXjCc67yCf41X6TeajVFbr

If you think this can, somehow, go further and providing the whole traceability helps, please let me know.

Thank you

I think the BTC has been sold to the accounts of the big traders already. I encourage you to change a new account or verify it more carefully, and be more careful when sharing any personal information with anyone. poor you  Cry

Sorry that you've gone through this, but this is the nature of crypto currency. It's both a positive and a negative; transactions are final and immutable. In instances like this, however, there is no type of fraud protection or insurance. I hope you learned your lesson: ALWAYS USE 2FA.

Your best attempt is to alert the exchange and to let them know that this is happening. I highly doubt, however, that they will take any action regarding this. I tried a quick search to see if I could find the exchange that these addresses belong to, but to no avail Sad

The first address that you posted was also used as a payout address in a bitcoin-doubling ponzi, so the scammer is also an idiot, FYI. lol

It usually happens when you use your email password to other websites (mostly phishing site or scam site).

There's no way for now to track them. The first thing you should do now is to take everything important from your email account (like bitcoins from coinbase wallet or altcoins from exchange sites) then delete your account.

You must do this because your email account has been compromised.So even if you add 2fa authentication it is still possible to retrieve the password.

After that recreate a new email account. Make sure that you always use a unique password and don't use it again to other websites.
If you still love your email account you can follow this guide if you are using gmail--->Find out if your account has been compromised

I found a website where you can send the bitcoin address to be listed on the hacker list from here https://bitcoinwhoswho.com

According to BTCforJoe about the first address you can inform someone or an exchange about the address that has been used for payout  then you might be able to identify the hacker's identity if the address has been used to a site that requires KYC for example then the wallet address. You can also inform some exchange site to block the address so that won't be able to exchange what the hacker's want to do. 2FA is a bit annoying but very effective.

Thank you

Sounds like you should call the police since the exchange sure can´t help you otherwise, the accounts could still be your´s, if there is no KYC on the exchange just forget it, since it still could be you doing all the transactions. For that matter, there might be weak legislation to follow anywa and prolly there will be no investigation unless you loose millions and know someone.

I feel for you and best of luck!

To add onto this, the adress where your money trail "ends" is where it actually begins.

The second adress 1JuNT9DjmQxXbXjCc67yCf41X6TeajVFbr is used as some kind of intermediary to Binance.

If that adress (1JuN) is held by an individual, it is KYC verified on Binance for sure. (36BTC+ transactions into binance), which makes me think that this is also some kind of exchange/wallet (unfortunately), but i have no clue which one.


1JuNT9DjmQxXbXjCc67yCf41X6TeajVFbr -> 1NDyJtNTjmwk5xPNhjgAMu4HDHigtobu1s (Binance adress) (>Source for this is matbea.net).

If you could provide the send adress that was used to receive the bitcoins on 1JuNT9DjmQxXbXjCc67yCf41X6TeajVFbr, i could check if your coins actually went through binance.

there nothing you can do because the blockchain is not traceable by facial identity. l will encourage you to put tough and high level security in all you account. also be watchful for the type of link you open with your browser because deep web are stronger than surface web.

Thank you all for your answer. It's what I expected.

Thank you as well for your advises. I already changed all my passwords, activated 2FA, recovery e-mail and phone options, etc.
E-mail in exchanges have been changed as well (to my new e-mail account). I recovered access to my e-mail so hacker can't log in anymore (in fact, he was in for only a few hours in the end). In any case, I'm going to burn that e-mail account and only use the new one, just in case.

Bastard, enjoy my 2 btc Sad Let's hope a new altbull run fixes it lol

Good job listening to advices Smiley. Good move, even 2FA isn't 100% protection but its best protection you can get in easy way for free.
I must add that im sorry for your loss, 2 BTC its a big amount that can change lives often.

Well to bad for you . How can he gain access to your gmail accounts if you set 2FA and he must have an access to your phone number confirm you are the user . The possibility is you set it up late or you click a phishing site
