This is a very strange story. It just doesn't add up. Probably if you can post proof, maybe it can be investigated.
I am never experienced such, and I don't know of anyone who has experience same, this is novel to me.
Maybe you can reach out to the sender to send you proof of the $1000 transfer.

Could you please share your TXID with us to confirm what happened? It appears that the sender may have canceled the transaction even before it received any confirmations, redirecting it to their own wallet in case the wallet supports replace by fee (RBF).

It could also happened that there might be an issue with your wallet. I'll just wait your response to better understand the situation, cause it's weird to expect that you're receiving 1K$ but getting 100$ instead.

I believe OP might be inadvertently promoting spam here. Either they're being deceptive, or their intended message isn't coming across clearly. This isn't aligned with how Bitcoin operates. To address this, it's important to provide a detailed account of the exact events and circumstances, including transaction details if privacy isn't a concern. Without this information, the threads could become inundated with spam, hindering any potential solutions.

After reading all what the OP said, I came to draw a conclusion that is only possible the OP is seeking for attention by creating such thread that request answers from members here but have failed to provide detailed information on how the possible result required might come to light. I think the OP should just either lock the thread or provide the transaction details (id).

Maybe you are not just sincere with the whole story, why can't you post some proofs to back this up?
That's the first impression I have when I first read what the OP said and the other user while the OP didn't provide the tx ID as requested by her.
My belief is that the sender sent the transaction to two different wallets while $100 worth of BTC is the transaction sent to the OP but she saw $1000 thinking the sender make a mistake by adding another zero or the $1000 was a change.

That's a little suspicious. First off transactions in the blockchain doesn't work that way so it's not a bait-and-switch. Second what do you mean by expecting? Are you saying that this person who's sending the money gave you a heads up that he's sending 1 grand? Or are you only made aware of it since you saw it incoming? Lastly, could you send us the transaction ID so we can look at it? We gotta make sure that the transaction you got was real and you could only do so through confirming the transaction ID exists and is in line with your stuff.

His message isn't coming across clearly so I viewed his account. He's been a user from 2017 so he should've known about double spend. I'd like to believe he isn't being deceptive but if he doesn't post info about TXID it'll put doubts on him.

Hi all,

I was expecting a transfer of $1000 in btc.. I saw incoming of $1000 in my wallet, then i also saw $100 incoming from the same sender.

20mins later the $1000 vanished and i had only $100 left.. Can someone confirm what exactly happened? Im confused. I thought once a transfer is sent and you see it on incoming it cant be changed or modified?

You are partially correct. Once a transaction is made on the bitcoin blockchain it can be replaced with another transaction which uses the same input and a higher transaction fee.
The previous transaction should not have received any confirmation on the blockchain for it to be replaced. Once 1-2 confirmations are happened then it becomes near to impossible to replace that transaction.
This is why it is recommended to have at least 2 confirmations for the transaction to consider it done.

Transaction has been sent at $1000 worth of Bitcoin with a low transaction fees, that causes delaying in confirmation and the same time the person make another transaction with the same input with a high gas fee that causes the first transaction delay by short pay $100 worth of Bitcoin.

Can share the Transaction ID and see what really happened, because Bitcoin transaction is transparent.

If this really happened and you are not mistaken, then you need to give more information or provide evidence, otherwise it is very difficult to say something for sure. I hope the sender was familiar to you and you did not lose money, if at all possible
If you share the transaction, then everything will become clear

If it's real, he'll share it.
All transactions can be seen, not even just Bitcoin, transactions on the blockchain are all transparent.

The transaction owned by OP, seems strange, but maybe the sender already has OP's private key and it's just to lure OP to top up to take the $100.

Many wallets are hacked by the drain method so that the scammer has control of the wallet that was drained.
Usually, there will be some special tokens that they send as a trap so that the wallet owner tries to sell it and monetize it on fake Dapps, so that the wallet will be hacked. Be wary of such methods.

If the story of the op is not one of those fabricated story by now the op would have shared the transition ID to back up the claim. It's so funny seeing stories about Bitcoin this way when Bitcoin transactions are clean and clear, the next time the op will come demanding for help here with the topic scam scam scam with no proof as if the forum is a place where all sort of things are said without good reasons or proof, let's go op drop another one 😂.

Hi all,
I was expecting a transfer of $1000 in btc.. I saw incoming of $1000 in my wallet, then i also saw $100 incoming from the same sender.

You didn't ask yourself why he is sending an extra $100?

I thought once a transfer is sent and you see it on incoming it cant be changed or modified?

An unconfirmed transfer can be changed or modified or not even confirmed at all.
That's why you should wait for 6 block confirmation before taking that money for granted.

What happened is that most likely you got scammed, they sent you $1000 worth of BTC with low fees you released an escrow or paid something or sent your coins and then they simply replaced the unconfirmed transaction and they sent you $100 probably as cover up to claim in a dispute that's the amount you agreed on!


Whether or not the OP's information may be true, I am intrigued that this could happen, wallets are supposed to have security encryption to such a degree that they do not allow this type of case... And they can tell me that  type of option exists due to the  possibility of making a mistake when making a transaction, but by God, we are talking about bitcoin, not any other current currency, for obvious reasons, before making a deposit to another person, you must make a last revision of the amount that is being made, so I don't see any sense in him that he was wrong and therefore redirected said transaction, so it makes me think that you are right, it is very likely that the OP has fallen for a scam. It is incredible how this type of incident has increased, I suppose that it is because of the popularity of bitcoin that thefts have increased considerably, which is why you have to take the necessary precautions, if before you were susceptible to transfers and exchanges, now there are to double this distrust... because apparently not even wallets are so safe now.

If the Bitcoin transaction had been done months earlier (resulting in your $1,000 becoming $100), I would have claimed that the weak market was to blame. When the market experiences a bull run, it will undoubtedly soar back to $1,000. But in this instance, you recently received bitcoin, which is why you are having confused thoughts.
It will be hard to believe until you provided the requested TXID, to know what lead to the cause of $1k-$100 in a short time
