if the funds were never received then the transaction was incomplete and as such you shouldn’t pay any gas (funds) for that transaction. The said transfer funds should have returned to the senders wallet, which means you can send them again to a different wallet address if you wish, you only pay what is known as gas for the transfer if it completes, so you would pay for second transaction.
The age of a wallet address has no significance on the transaction costs.
i hope this answers your question, if not and you need further clarity please get back to me and I will endeavour to explain further
I can’t see how you would pay for the transaction if it didn’t go through the first time.
also that is rather a large fee for a transaction you should be paying a lot less than that when you consider your only sending crypto and the fee is based of the size of the data not the amount your sending.
check you have your coin returned to your wallet. If not check the coin didn’t actually go through, if it didn’t then it could still be on the block if it’s in neither wallet or you had the wrong address in which case it’s probably lost to you but in someone else’s wallet.
i can send you a link to check your transaction on the block by searching for your address if need be.
if the coin is back in your wallet then try to send it again to where you want it to go and check the gas price (it should be a lot lower than that, less than $5 max, unless your sending a lot and need an quick confirmation)
if you want to check where the request come from I would need more information, if it’s come on an e mail, you could have a security issue, I would suggest shutting down your PC and changing the passwords as soon as you can for a start.
Thank you very much. I would interested to see where it originated from if you can help in any way. Thanks in advance for anything you can do.
It was in a Skype message from Anne Marie, supposedly the wife's account of Yurii Shavlov (an acquaintance on line for an extended period of time). Thos is the wallet address I was asked to send to: 1AXY3VL57Eqw8Y86W4quU845rvYRftpDFW
Earlier messages, again supposedly from Blockchain:
I suspect it is a scam in some way but, if so, he has spent a lot of time perpetrating it.
I do appreciate that. I admit I know very little about Blockchain. I'm learning some now about Miners. Apparently those three option amounts to pay were Miner Fees asked for. I don't know much about blocks and how long it takes them to clear.
