Another user of NFT Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) has fallen victim to a phishing scam.
The latest theft resulted in a loss of seven NFTs, each worth more than $100,000 at current low prices. The victim seems to have been tricked into giving their support in a bad deal. Once this happens, the scammer can transfer all seven BAYC tokens to the victim’s wallet. Among the complete NFTs is BAYC #6567, which the victim bought for 190 ETH ($250,000) just two days ago. A scammer removed it for 63 ETH earlier today. serial crook
According to ZachXBT, a well-known crypto whistleblower, it is possible that the person or group that stole the NFTs is another culprit.
He said on Twitter that a fraudster had obtained seven Bored Apes and stole another Bored Ape 8941 in September. The chain sleuth went on to link the theft of Bored Ape 8941 to the person he calls HK/Chase, finding a link between the suspect’s profile picture on OpenSea and previous evidence of the same alleged hacking of more than 600 Discord server.
CirrusNFT, the aggregator that recently revealed the liquidation facing BAYC holders on BendDAO, called it “the worst wallet crash in recent memory.”
