Over a week ago I purchased some btc from a reputable source, a week ago they sent the coins but the balance never showed up in my wallet. I confirmed that my wallet owns the receiving address and I tried rescanning the blockchain. I have not made any other transactions before or after this btc order, and I have a copy of the wallet before and after I made the receiving address in question. Below is the link to my address on blockexplorer, notice the funds have not yet been received. It makes me think I have to manually do something in order to claim them. Thanks in advance for shedding light on my issues.

This address is showing zero transactions.

http://blockchain.info/address/1P4Zun4EmU6nhSqiXzbASX1cQxCuWJih35

Meaning that the transfer never happened. Do you have the transaction number (hash)? It might help you track it down.

Yes, you can expose it. It's public info

Here's an example: http://blockchain.info/tx-index/10596176/89de8be9feb27cec5d2ee432ab2f9632fd2d788d36f6aed8549fa39a6cdf94bf

Hmm, well it seems I have no private info on it, I just followed your link and searched for my address and came up with:

hash: f1ff7ca9e3867131753221e013950b876f76b2c5

Bitcoin today is what the internet was in 1998.

It looks like the problem is that the coins were never sent (at least to that address.) Perhaps you could try contacting the company/person you bought them from?

Ask the sender if he sent it.  If he says yes, ask what address he sent it to.

I'll bet it's the wrong address.

You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.

Did your client actually show the transaction as having been received at one time?

Because of several double-spend methods, it is possible that you could have seen the payment (even appearing on blockchain.info) but then it never confirms and eventually disappears as if it had never been sent.

That risk is one reason why using the #bitcoin-otc Web of Trust (WoT) is a good habit to get into.
