Actor Seth Green loses 4 NFTs worth over $300,000 to hackers.

Seth Green, an American actor and comedian, lost four NFTs worth more than $300,000 in a phishing attack. The stolen NFTs were from popular collectibles including Bored Ape Yacht Club, Doodles, and Mutant Ape Yacht Club.

Green tweeted that he is the latest victim of a phishing attack. He lost four NFTs. The actor pleaded with the crypto community to refrain from buying the stolen NFTs. He is trying to resolve the problem.

However, it seems the hackers immediately sold the digital assets. Sources say the Bored Ape was sold for over $200,000, while the Mutant Ape was sold for $42,000. The Italian Job actor highlighted @DarkWing84, who identifies himself as a street photographer, as having bought his stolen ape. But Green didn’t get any response. On its part, OpenSea – an NFT marketplace – has marked the stolen NFTs as “suspicious” to prevent them from being sold or bought.

Green revealed that he was trying to buy a Gutter Clone NFT, which is an imitation of the popular Gutter Cats collection. The 46-year-old connected his wallet to the portal, which turned out to be a fake website. He shared that the phishing link looked “clean”. The record of transactions on Green’s wallet address shows that the NFTs were stolen more than a week ago.

Hackers have been drawn to the growing popularity of non-fungible tokens. In February this year, OpenSea users lost NFTs worth over $1 million in a phishing attack.
