Hi everyone,
this morning I brought bitcoins for £70.65 via Blockchain, they went into my wallet fine, when I tried to send them to another wallet to pay someone, they were claimed by someone else and have gone forever???
I cant afford to lose this but the buyer would only take bitcoins and they didn't even reach his account.
I contacted blockchain and got a 1 line message saying  basically they are gone and there is npthing I can do?
I,m new to this so would really like some advice please

can you elaborate?
begin from looking up your own bitcoin address via blockchain.info search to ensure if it's gone or not, and where, it will show you any transaction that already accepted by the network. just use the search field.
it's correct that if you really sent your btc they can't get back to you unless receiver will send them back.

You have provided almost no useful information at all for helping you figure out what happened and if anything can be done to help you.

The bare minimum of information that would be a good starting point:

  • What is your wallet address that you received the bitcoins to?
  • What address were you supposed to send the bitcoins to?
  • What address did you send the bitcoins to?

Do you send it to the wrong person?

BTC transactions are not reversible. If wrong address was provided caused by your mistake or malware then there is nothing you can do. Money lost  Undecided
