Hi All
In November I bought 865mi  IOTA and used the shitty seed generator on iotaseed.io. Since a couple of days i tried to get my balance back. it always showed zero. In the tangle it showed that i still have them. This morning i tried more solutions. And then i saw on tangle that they have just been STOLEN and the transfer is pending. Is there anything i can still do at this moment? Thank you for your help.

I turned on my wallet today and found that my coins are still there, but are in the sending status, but i did not send. What can I do?  Please help me.

The address where my coins are sent is the following: ZPXFSDGOOWBWCNKAONOUZEEEZFPKCPMZZOZWWJLPHQKGRLBOAG9KMJLKXILSGTWZ9CNPMGWHTIDTFYQXYXOOVQFSOA

If the iotas have been send already, there is nothing you can do, just generate your next seed the proper way

You can try to doublespend to an address of your own via the CLI wallet (command line)
I've never done it myself though.

@Aleahluv    @oreana     @Kevinba     @Bear_OO_
Thanks for the posts, everyone.

-If you have a pending outgoing transaction in your wallet that you didn't send, then you should urgently double spend your balance into an address that you control by using the CLI wallet (instructions on the 3rd link):
CLI Wallet
https://github.com/MichaelSchwab/iota-commandline-wallet
https://github.com/TimSamshuijzen/iotaproxy
CLI Wallet Instructions: https://forum.helloiota.com/post/8584
You'll need to send a new transaction and get that new transaction to confirm before the thief's stolen transaction confirms.

-If you have a confirmed outgoing transaction in your wallet that you didn't send, then unfortunately those funds are gone.

Hi philhelm. I'm sorry I was offline. Your transaction seems to be confirmed. I'm afraid there isn't much we can do now.

I noticed a transfer try this morning. It was still unconfirmed. Later it was gone. Perhaps the support has canceled it. Puhhh! BUT:
How can I now change my Seed? I tried it via "Reclaim tool" but only errors occured. Also I cannot send any amout of coins to another wallet. 
Is the account locked? I dont feel good to know, that someone has my Seed and could try again to get the coins. Everything I do produces an error like "invalid response"
Help please!

To everyone posting with stolen balances:

You have all likely used malicious online seed generators when generating your seed. It looks like the owner of that website(s) decided to steal all of the victims' funds today, so we're seeing a bunch of panicked posts about stolen funds. Instructions:

1. If the stolen transaction is still pending (it'll say "Pending" underneath the transaction in your wallet history), URGENTLY send your entire balance to an address in a different seed. You might need to use the CLI wallet in order to make this new transaction so that you can bypass the double spending prevention mechanism that's built into the GUI wallet. You need to get your new transaction confirmed before the stolen transaction is confirmed.
CLI Wallet -
https://github.com/MichaelSchwab/iota-commandline-wallet
https://github.com/TimSamshuijzen/iotaproxy
CLI Wallet Instructions: https://forum.helloiota.com/post/8584

2. If the stolen transaction is confirmed (it'll say "Confirmed" underneath the transaction in your wallet history), unfortunately that IOTA is now gone forever. This is a terrible situation, but hopefully we can use this experience to inculcate safe seed generation practices.

 
The golden rule is to change 10 characters from whatever string of characters the seed generator gives you. Preferably, avoid online seed generators altogether. Here are the currently recognized best practices of seed generation by the IOTA community:

Thank you, but the transaction is already confirmed.

Why the IOTA Team doesnt make it Public?  they know it over 2 Weeks! my amount was stolen since 3 day. .. when they make it public i had a chance to cover it! but IOTA Team doenst say anything. this is what make me angry! This Fail is not only the User Fail - its is a big Fail from IOTA Team and developement. All other Wallets generate a Key at first Login. I can not understand it. why they dont stopt the tangel.. and they can do it. like the others.. it is centralized.. at the moment. they can do all. ...
