The amount of funds lost as a result of hacks, scams, and exploits in the cryptocurrency and non-fungible token sectors has surged to the highest level this year. Unfortunately, scammers and hackers seem relentless in perpetrating more scam attacks. In yet another scam attack, scammers have just stolen nine NFTs in a phishing attack.

Scammers Steal Nine Blue-chip Azuki NFTs

In an October 20 blog post, PeckShield, a blockchain security company, confirmed that unknown scammers had drained nine Azuki non-fungible tokens in a phishing attack. The Fake Phishing link 187019 has drained nine NFTs, including Azuki # 2098, Azuki #2295, Azuki 4585 and more.

Founded in 2018, PeckShield is a blockchain security company that aims to elevate the level of security, privacy, and usability of the blockchain ecosystem by offering top-notch, industry-leading services and products. The security firm has successfully detected and investigated most crypto scams and hacks.

Earlier last month, the blockchain security company detected that unknown scammers had drained five NFTs on the Blur NFT marketplace in a phishing attack. Some of the NFTs stolen include Bored Ape Kennel Club #5330, Otherdeed for Otherside #68622, and Pudgy Penguins #160.

Recent Crypto And NFT Scams

The recent scams appeared just a few hours after The Sandbox, an Ethereum-based metaverse and gaming ecosystem that allows users to create, trade, and monetize virtual assets through gaming experiences, thwarted another scam attempt.

On October 19, The Sandbox warned the crypto and the non-fungible token community against potential scam attempts. Scammers teased the NFT and crypto community with the launching of The Sandbox Whitelist Beta Testing and attached some phishing links.

Last month, Mark Cuban, the American billionaire crypto investor and owner of the popular National Basketball Association club Dallas Mavericks, lost more than $870,000 in a crypto hack after accidentally downloading the MetaMask mobile app alongside some phishing links.

A few weeks ago, hackers breached Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin’s X (Twitter) account to promote a fake non-fungible token giveaway, prompting users to click a malicious link, which resulted in victims collectively losing over $691,000. We urge crypto and non-fungible token investors to remain vigilant since scammers and hackers are on a stealing spree.
