The crypto community deceived the scammer and returned the stolen NFT tokens

Posted 27 May, 2022

The attackers received only 2% of their requested resale price. Stolen items were returned to the owner.

The World of Solana (WOS) crypto community tracked down and returned some of the NFTs stolen for resale, buying them back for 2% of the value assigned by the attacker.

WOS is an NFT collection on the Solana blockchain, which consists of 2222 unique tokens depicting various characters.

The official page of the Unchained NFT studio on the Discord social network was hacked, as a result, the hacker gained access to 109 wallets. The user who lost 25 NFTs from the WOS collection suffered the most damage.

He and other members of the community approached developer Cyber ​​Frogs with a request to set a royalty of 98% on the stolen tokens. The company went forward, and NFT lovers began to observe the placement of new lots on the MagicEden marketplace, where items of this series are sold.

Two days later, the attacker put all 25 NFTs up for sale on the platform. Members of World of Solana were able to redeem 15 items from him, the remaining 10 were bought by another user.

Later, a message was sent to this buyer stating that he had purchased the stolen items and would not be able to sell them. He was offered a refund and agreed to help get the NFT back.

On May 22, a Beeple account hack brought the attackers $438,000 in NFTs, and in early May, Actor Seth Green lost $300,000 worth of NFTs when clicking on a phishing link.
