American actor paid 165 ETH to return NFT BAYC stolen from him in May

Seth Green, a popular Hollywood actor, bought back an NFT stolen from him a month earlier from the BAYC collection.

In May 2022, the actor became a victim of phishing, due to which he lost four NFTs. Among them was BAYC #8398. Since the actor had creative plans for him, he had to spend money to redeem a token with the image of a monkey.

True, the actor did not purchase it from a scammer, but from another collector with the nickname DarkWing84, who legally purchased it for 106.5 ETH. This is evidenced by a transaction on

Green found the new owner of the NFT and began threatening to sue him if he did not agree to return the subject matter. Later, the parties had a personal conversation, and DarkWing84 agreed to return the asset for a reward of 165 ETH.

Since OpenSea marked this NFT as associated with suspicious activity, the sale was carried out through another platform - NFT Trader. Recall that the tokens from this collection are in high demand and often become the target of scammers during phishing attacks. Be careful!
