Etherscan Uncovers Stolen Funds Transfers
CertiK Alert stated that the account was moving loot from different phishing exploits. According to Etherscan, the address has transferred 981 ETH within the past 97 days.
In addition, the address has over 604 ETH worth more than $1 million. Earlier, 8.55 ETH was sent to the address from “0x70747df6ac244979a2ae9ca1e1a82899d02bbea4.” The address has a high activity level, with over 20 transactions recorded in the past seven days.
In November 2022, a holder of a Psychonaut NFT lost their NFT to a phishing exploit. The affected investor raised a warning about the theft on Twitter.
The user also criticized the platform for not assisting in recovering the NFT. Meanwhile, another Twitter user by the ID, MetaLif3, replied to the victim, explaining how they were deceived into visiting a counterfeit website, which resulted in their wallet emptying.
Following the attacker’s sale of the Psychonaut NFT, the proceeds from the transaction were transferred to the address, Fake_Phishing7064. Notably, this address was involved in different phishing attacks in 2022.
LeoBailey11, the ambassador for the Tokyo Rebels NFT initiative, informed ZachXBT, a blockchain enthusiast, that an anonymous individual transferred some funds belonging to the notorious phishing cyber attacker known as “Monkey Drainer” to Fake_Phishing7064.
