The blockchain security company CertiK thinks it has identified at least one of the scammers linked to the “Monkey Drainer” phishing scheme. Moreover, the person or people responsible for the phishing scam have used fraudulent imitation NFT minting websites to steal millions of dollars worth of ether (ETH).
The phishing fraudster known as Monkey Drainer employs smart contracts via an “ice phishing” technique to steal NFTs.
In a blog post, CertiK stated that it discovered on-chain communications between two con artists who were responsible for a recent $4.3 million Porsche NFT phishing scam. The blockchain security company was also able to connect one of them to a Telegram account that was involved in the sale of the Monkey Drainer-style phishing kit.
