Seth Green’s Bored Ape Stolen In Recent Phishing Scam
Earlier this month, Seth Green fell victim to an NFT phishing scam, which ultimately resulted in the loss of several NFT assets. Unfortunately, his losses included his high-prized Bored Ape (#8398), which was set to appear in his new Animated TV Series, White Horse Tavern.
This story could get fascinating as things unfold, especially regarding copyright infringements and the use of intellectual property, if Green were to try and continue forward in featuring the Bored Ape NFT in his TV series. As it stands, the new owner of Bored Ape #8398 holds all commercial rights to using the NFT.
Green has been pleading on Twitter with “DarkWing84,” who purchased his Bored Ape from the phishing attacker.
