⚠️ Beware of Unsolicited NFTs
A new type of scam has reportedly surfaced that can compromise the wallets of collectors who simply interact with an unsolicited NFT. Sending unsolicited NFTs has become a common occurrence, and influencers regularly receive free NFTs from projects hoping to broaden their exposure. This latest scam appears to exploit this approach with malicious approval and transfer functions in the NFT’s smart contract.
The best way to avoid being hacked via this method is to avoid interacting with any unsolicited NFTs sent to your wallet in any way. This includes listing, accepting bids, or even moving the NFT between wallets on OpenSea. — Langston Thomas
