Seth Green, best known for his parts in Austin Powers (1997) and Scooby-Doo 2 (2004), said on Twitter yesterday that he had lost four Bored Apes in a phishing assault.

“Well, it happened to me, frens. Green tweeted, “I was phished and 4NFT was taken.” “Please don’t purchase or sell them while I try to resolve,” he asked the NFT community and his 1.4 million Twitter followers to refrain from engaging with the stolen products. Green went so far as to name a Twitter account he believes to be the thief, DarkWings84. Green tweeted, “Looks like you bought my stolen ape- hit me up so we can fix it.”

It’s impossible to estimate the worth of the stolen assets given the recent drop in Ethereum pricing.

Looking at the four NFTs that Green lost, including Bored Ape #8398, Mutant Bored Apes #19182 and #9964, and Doodle NFT #7546, it appears that Green’s Bored was moved to an OpenSea account called DarkWings84. DarkWings84’s OpenSea page defines them as an experimental photographer, which fits their Twitter profile. The remaining NFTs, on the other hand, were moved to an anonymous account that has since been deleted.

Green has lately gotten increasingly active in the NFT area, partnering on an NFT-related TV program with DJ Steve Aoki. Green’s Bored Ape was really transferred to him by Aoki, as evidenced by the Ape’s transaction history.

The Ape has been reported for suspicious behavior on OpenSea, along with Green’s other missing NFTs, and purchasing and selling operations have been blocked on the site. The NFTs were not sold prior to OpenSea’s intervention, although some were moved to different accounts. Other sites can still trade the assets.
