I made a payment to somebody and now he is not replying me regarding the product I made the payment for and think its a fraud. So I want to block the transaction. All I have is the QR code of the person to whom the payment was made. I also have the QR code detail Bitcoin:1PNPnadF26twbAxTZTVeEaQKjbYeXDmeNJ

  • Sorry, that's not how it works. When you pay with bitcoin, you are essentially paying cash. Since you have the recipient's address, you can look up the transaction on a block explorer like blockchain.info, but my guess is is that your transaction already has a few confirmations. You can ask for your money back, but that's it.

  • Can you help block the address because i am unable to do anything about it. Jul 22, 2016 at 19:41

    No. That's not how Bitcoin works. I have no more power to do this than you do. Looking at that address (blockchain.info/address/…), I can see that there are many transactions to the address. I can also see that all the transactions to that address are confirmed by more than 6 blocks. I don't know which is yours, but it is irreversable. In fact, I can see that all outputs to that address are already spent. Talk to the recipient, because all that can be done is convincing them to send your money back.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because they are asking for help doing the impossible. They have not adequately researched their problem, and are treating this forum like a customer service department for Bitcoin.

If the transaction has been confirmed there is nothing to do and that is probably your situation. If not (due a small fee) then you can pay yourself with a higher fee to "block" the previous one.
