Hey Anna,
I understand you’re upset. It must be a very distressing situation.
To make progress, let’s try to separate out the facts of the matter and focus on those.
Please tell me which wallet your husband was using, to start.
Next, be very careful about taking advice from random internet strangers. If they’re dishonest, they could steal the bitcoins.
Do you have any message history from the guy who told you to sweep the funds? If so, please paste that. Which wallet did you use for the sweeping process?
Any other technical details would be helpful. Where are you located? Depending on your location and the current state of the Bitcoin wallet, it might be best to bring in a trusted Bitcoin expert to help you out.
