Actor Seth Green Loses Nft $300K in Phishing Attacks

The American actor and comedian lost four expensive NFTs after clicking on a phishing link in a transaction

Famous American actor Seth Green had his NFTs stolen while trying to buy them. His wallet was switched to a third-party site via a phishing link, the actor wrote on Twitter.

The stolen items were from NFT’s popular high-end line, including Bored Ape Yacht Club, Mutant Ape Yacht Club and Doodles. In total, the hackers stole about 145 ETH (about $300,000 at current exchange rates).

All tokens were sold immediately. The Boring Ape Yacht Club NFT was sold for more than $200,000 and the Mutant Ape Yacht Club was sold for $42,000. The other two NFTs in Dudus’ collection were valued at about $26,000 each.

“Well, my friend, it happened to me. I had four NFTs stolen,” Green wrote. He asked the cryptocurrency community not to buy NFTs while he tries to get them back.

Green identified a buyer and wrote a letter asking him to contact him, but he never received a response, at least not publicly. Since then, OpenSea, the NFT’s marketplace, has flagged the stolen works as suspicious and won’t allow them to be bought or sold.

According to the actor, he tried to buy a Gutter NFT clone that was a parody of the popular Gutter Cats series.

“The link to the phishing site looked like the real thing,” he admitted.

In March, the owners of NFT Rare Bears lost $800,000 to a phishing link on the project’s Discord channel, and the attackers stole a total of 179 NFTs.
