I have contacted apple but there is nothing they can do to recover my photos as the phone is passcode locked, wifi is turned off and siri is turned off and there is no swipe up screen. Am going to contact police today, just thought somehow the wallet could be tracked or if we did pay the ransom money then the payment could be reversed if the passcode was recovered.Contact Apple, and your local police may be useful too.
No. Neither of those are possible. An address can only be tracked by looking at where the bitcoins at the address come from and where they go. Bitcoin payments are not reversible.... just thought somehow the wallet could be tracked or if we did pay the ransom money then the payment could be reversed if the passcode was recovered.
Hey I have been a victim of the Findmyphone hack where a passcode is changed on your phone and it is locked and you are requested to pay $50 to unlock it. The scumbags who have done this to me have given me a bitcoin account to pay into I was wondering if there is any way to track who this account belongs to or to reverse a payment once it is made to see if they will give me the passcode back. I have a 4 month old daughter and unfortunately my phone hasnt backed up since she was born so I stand to lose all photos of her. I am absolutely devastated and really need help. Surely these low-life criminals can be traced and caught using technology. They are using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and want money deposited into bitcoin wallet: 1GHgoJckF7k7azPJs8YCu6FbC5nvJY8ap4
Please help, I am desperate to get these photos back!
