This question already has an answer here:
I am new to Bitcoin. So, I downloaded the Windows Bitcoins software from the official website and used the "request bitcoins" option to request bitcoins from my exchanger.
My exchanger charged me $20 and told me he will send me bitcoins corresponding to $20. But even after 18-20 hours I didn't receive any bitcoins.
Additionally, the Bitcoin software is showing
synchronizing with network : x years xx weeks remaining.
What should I do? Should I wait for the synchronizing to complete or file a complaint against exchanger?
