Reports said that another Twitter NFT influencer has claimed to be the victim of an OpenSea hack – yet some people have doubts about the story. Accordingly, the collector lost several Doodles, Bored Apes, and other blue-chip NFTs, totaling over $1 million.
It has been reported that the NFT community does not feel sorry for the influencer at all. Twitter NFT influencer and BAYC collector @jfx is the latest victim of hacking. The collector shared the news via social media along with a screenshot of his stolen NFTs.
However, the hacked NFT collector has in the past scammed users by the use of social media tactics – particularly via Instagram. Other users echoed this and even accused @jfx of stealing from other community members.
The report said that right now, hackers are targeting the NFT community more than ever. Some may try to steal your seed phrase via simple word docs. Meanwhile, other hackers attract users with free mint NFTs that actually hide malicious smart contracts.
Thus, the most important step is to DYOR before investing in any NFT project – particularly new ones.
