No way. Transactions can't be cancelled. You lost this coins forever.

Buy a lottery ticket because the odds of doing that with a client checking for valid addresses is about 1 in 4 billion.

What was the address?  How did you manage to accidently produce an address with a valid check sum that "does not exist" without doing it on purpose?

For fun I have produced such addresses and sent BTC to them so they are forever written in the block chain, for example:

Code:
11When1DieBuryMeDeepLayTwoXVEY5jv
11SpeakersAtMyFeetAPairofXXTyrHor
11HeadphonesonMyHeadAndXXXXYUSvnd
11ALwaysPLayTheGratefuLDeadWdq4Xo

But notice that the last few characters of each address encode the check sum and it must be correct in order for the address to be accepted.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

Then the private key *does* exist. Smiley You need to get it from the service owner though.

What is mubitcoin.org? The domain doesn't resolve... Or did he meant mybitcoin.com ? If so, good luck recovering them.

Hello,

transactions sent thru Bitcoin network cannot be reversed, so if pool sent payout to non-existing address, those coins are definitely lost.

Please change your wallet ASAP to prevent future loses...

Best,

That address is empty now, the most recent transactions were in January.  

What is your story again?  When did it happen?

https://blockexplorer.com/address/1JiRyzD9A3gHb7TssmTmPXWqPUyk5mJd6w

OR:  http://blockchain.info/address/1JiRyzD9A3gHb7TssmTmPXWqPUyk5mJd6w

When did this happen? It seems at least on or before September 2011.

Think of it this way... You order something online and give them the wrong address. They send it right away. 7 months later you call them and tell them your mistake and want them to send it again. (The permanent loss of the item aside, how do you prove that you don't have access to the mailbox of that address?)

One difference is, we can see what the receiver on the wrong address did with your coins, and that they actually sent them to somewhere else. So your only option is find the owner of that address and ask for your coins. While at it, ask for my coins as well. Smiley

If you sent it to mybitcoin.com, you won't see your coins again. Period. And the coins CANNOT BE RETURNED TO THE PREVIOUS ADDRESS. This is bitcoin's design. Absolute one way of sending coins. No use berating slush for that. Change your address to one you control(inside your bitcoin client preferably), and that is it.

You are asking for a refund for something you did that long ago?  What planet are you from?  You can't even get a refund for something you did this long ago when using fiat.  I am out of here.
