    Exclamation [RESOLVED - see first post edit] Basicso STOLE over $500 in bitcoin from meter

    Long story short, I placed an order for 3 vials of primo and 2 test. When you place an order you are provided with a delivery address and an amount of bitcoin to send. I payed for my order in bitcoin and Basicstero is trying to tell me that it was not sent to them. I sent it to the exact address that was provided to me.They blatantly STOLE $540 from me and refuse to send me my order. DO NOT TRUST Basicstero. I'm in shock right now that a "reputable" supplier would do this to me.

    ------------

    EDIT (by RThoads): to Add Resolution info to first post because some may not read details of entire thread and it is CLEAR that the source did NOT do anything wrong.
    In fact, Basicstero went out of his way to help the customer even though the issue was NOT at all involving or the responsibility fault of the source.
    The source's tracking info confirms the pack was successfully delivered.

    Man, sorry to say this, but it looks like you are a victim of a phishing attack. You used electrum wallet to send coins? Let me guess: you launched electrum wallet. It poped up a window with the advise to update the wallet. You agreed, right?
    Electrum is under attack latest few weeks. There is a respective message on their site "Warning: Electrum versions older than 3.3 can no longer connect to public servers, and must be upgraded. This is in order to prevent user exposure tophishing messages. Do not download Electrum from any another source than electrum.org."
    Your coins are stolen indeed, but not by basicstero.
    I can post the destination address, it is bc1qcla39fm0q8ka8th8ttpq0yxla30r430m4hgu3x and it has numerous incoming transfers. Latest were done on 9th of April.
    https://chainz.cryptoid.info/btc/add...430m4hgu3x.htm
    This block explorer shows full transfers history, others do not see it for some reason.

    I don`t really like to finish this thread on a negative note. This was a loval order. We offer the following solution. Although we did not get funds, but we offer to send this order from our international warehouse. You don`t stay without goods, we minimize losses on international delivery.

    I have seen phishing before.
    I remember on ProMuscle TP (the provider, a popular GH source) warned about some phishing scam last year or so (fake emails were sent to customers) and he explained one must check carefully the header etc to make sure they are interacting with whom they intend.
    Sources cannot sit at your end and do this for you -- such an issue is not associated with the source's end – the individual must stay up-to-date and careful.

    In such a case of phishing attack with the wallet or other steps (not the source).
    Then it is NOT at all any fault the source (Any source) and not the source's responsibility.
    Clearly the if this is what happened, then the scam occurred before payment ever reached Basicstero (the source did not get paid).

    This is responsibility of the customer to make sure payment is sent to the correct place.
    IF we have it any other way, people can scam by simply sending BTC to another address of their own and claim it was sent to the source.
    It is only the source’s fault if the source provided wrong address or made a mistake.

    Also, keep in mind, if the OP was victim of phishing (as warned about on the electrum website, see below), then he would be able to see in the BTC transaction history on the blockchain that the money was NOT sent to the address Basicstero provided.
    So I still do not understand the bashing and accusations??? has the transaction history been looked up yet by the OP (I explained how to do so)?

    Basicstero made no mistake here, Basicstero did not steal/scam anyone, and the OP made very serious slanderous accusations without even considering all possibilities.
    With that said, I think Frank’s (Basicstero’s) offer is amazingly generous.
    Clearly, the source was not at all involved nor at fault, and did not get paid.

Also feel like it's necessary to say that I'm not a scammer and did send the money it just got intercepted by a hacker? Regardless, I am very sorry and thank you to Basicstero.

    Did someone hack your email to alter the bitcoin address somehow or maybe a simple mixup as stated? Just throwing that out there as this is a serious accusation to make.

    Nope I sent it directly to the address that was given to me. I've been using crypto for years.

    Hmm I had no problems with them recently. I feel like this was an error on someones part and not theft.
