You wont actually receive the bitcoins until the blockchain is fully synced. Just wait a while. How far along is the syncing? it can sometimes take a while. You can enter the address you gave and enter it at a site like blockchain.info and it can tell you whether they actually sent the coins or not.

Copy wallet.dat to removable media right now, less can go wrong if you do that.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.
