HI

So, i received a transaction into my wallet - no problem. I then sent a transaction and received the following message (error - asking to update my wallet) but the transfer sent anyways...

a few minutes later i received another message stating insufficient funds. My account has a positive balance.

The BTC was sent but not received at my receiving address.

it is not available to inspect on block explorer (the webpage times out).

On block chain it has been confirmed 8 times now, and is labeled 'unspent' (i dont know what unspent means)

transaction ID is 311b5e24330c951cfa8725cccc71832102437dc7140dbea02abd7739e3e4c4d8


I don't suppose anyone here can shed some light for me please..

would be grateful

regards
Marv

when you go to your History tab in your wallet do you see the transaction that you sent in there? if so then what does it say in its Date field? does it say something like "Local"?

a few minutes later i received another message stating insufficient funds. My account has a positive balance.

electrum does not give you unsolicited messages and that after "a few minutes". if you try spending more than you have you will see an error message right away and you won't even go into signing/sending process.

i am confused about these 3 statements. is this the transaction you can't find on block explorers and you say wasn't received or is it the one you are trying to spend?
this transaction is already confirmed https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/transaction/311b5e24330c951cfa8725cccc71832102437dc7140dbea02abd7739e3e4c4d8
and unspent means it is "not yet spent" and the the owner of 1PTzVVhYkxmzBa9yBZPrToPT82CaP3Zrie and    33EEEyMu6WHFdqBnmm8xGJyCLdag8XKzCn keys can spend their respective amount.

First you should know electrum has a "vulnerability" where electrum servers can send you messages as you send or receive a transaction, so its recommended to update.

https://bitcointalk.to/index.php?topic=5090097.0

If you dont see the money you sent in electrum, but you see it on the blockchain, it might be a malicious electrum server trying to manipulate you. Make sure to store your wallet seed, and upgrade electrum to the latest version.

A bit confusing but as pooya points out, your transaction was successfully made and confirmed. If you don't see the address you thought you were sending to either 33EEEyMu6WHFdqBnmm8xGJyCLdag8XKzCn or 1PTzVVhYkxmzBa9yBZPrToPT82CaP3Zrie, then it's likely your tx was hijacked. Maybe you made a mistake after all, and you own the private keys to either of those 2?

You use Electrum, make sure you're always on the latest stable version. Versions older than the one now have a vulnerability explained by KingZee - in any case, never ever trust a message received.

Make this a habit, before signing any transaction, click the Preview button in Electrum:
1. Check receiving address is correct <this is probably most important>.
2. Check amount is correct, as well as fee.

Sign and then broadcast.
