Famous American actor Seth Green was robbed while trying to buy an NFT. His wallet switched to a third-party website via a phishing link, which the actor tweeted about.
The stolen items were from popular high-value NFT collections, including Bored Ape Yacht Club, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, and Doodles. In total, the hackers stole about 145 ETH (about $300,000 at the current exchange rate).
All tokens were immediately sold. The Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT sold for over $200,000 and the Mutant Ape Yacht Club sold for $42,000. The other two NFTs from the Doodles collection cost about $26,000 each.
“Well, friends, this happened to me. 4 NFTs were stolen from me,” wrote Green. He asked the cryptocurrency community to refrain from buying these NFTs as he is trying to get them back.
Green identified one buyer and wrote to him asking for contact, but never received a response, at least not publicly. NFT marketplace OpenSea has since flagged the stolen work as suspicious, preventing it from being bought or sold.
The actor revealed that he tried to buy a Gutter NFT clone, an imitation of the popular Gutter Cats collection.
“The phishing link looked like a real one,” he admitted.
In March, NFT Rare Bears holders lost $800,000 due to a phishing link on the project's Discord channel, in total, the attacker managed to steal 179 NFTs.
