Hackers Breach Jason Falovitch’s Wallet and Steal NFTs, ETH Worth $150K

Controversial crypto entrepreneur Jason Falovitch on Sunday reported that hackers breached his crypto wallet on OpenSea and stole four NFTs and six ETH. In a similar incident, earlier this month, famous American actor and comedian Bill Muray became a victim of hackers and lost 119.2 ETH worth $185,000 that he had just finished raising through his NFT action for a charity.

Asking to fix responsibility on the wallet service provider, a user sued OpenSea for $1 million after he lost his Bored Ape NFT in a phishing attack. The plaintiff claimed that OpenSea must accept some responsibility for the heist. The four NFTs that hackers illegally transferred out of his wallet included a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT and a Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) NFT, and two Doodles. Both Mutant and Bored Ape NFTs were sold for 15.99 ETH and 82.69 ETH, equivalent to $20,700 and $107,000, respectively.

UK judge rules to extradite Christopher Hamilton to US for trial on OneCoin scam

#Web3GrandPappa

A Briton Christopher Hamilton will be extradited to the U.S. to face money laundering and wired fraud charges after being indicted in the $ 4 billion OneCoin scam, according to Law360. Hamilton and his co-accused Robert McDonald had filed to be tried outside of the US since the majority of the crimes took place in Britain.

A U.K District Judge Nicholas Rimmer, however, ruled against their plea and ruled for extradition given that the victims were based in the US. While Hamilton will be tried in the U.S., McDonald was exempted from the extradition on claims of human rights. He claimed that his wife was critically ill and his absence may expose her to suicidal tendencies. The duo is facing legal charges for taking part in the $4 billion OneCoin Ponzi scam pioneered by “CryptoQueen” Ruja Ignatova.#web3grandpappa

Pig Butchering -Dating Apps, Crypto, and Organized Crime

What Is ‘Pig Butchering,’ the Crypto Scam That’s Flooding the FBI’s Phone Lines?

https://gizmodo.com/what-is-a-pig-butchering-crypto-scam-1849316921

A “pig butchering” scam has a few basic elements to it. Each individual piece isn’t so different from a lot of other crypto scams, though they do offer a noxious brew when mixed together.

The broad strokes go something like this:

  • The scammer targets a victim on a dating app like Tinder, initiating a romantic relationship that’s exclusively online
  • Through online chats, a level of trust is established
  • Inevitably, the “lover” encourages their target to invest in cryptocurrency, commonly directing them to a fake website or app that is secretly controlled by the scammer
  • After the victim has agreed to invest some money in the phony platform, the lover disappears (along with the money)—never to be seen again
