The Metaverse, Exploring Knowledge and Avoiding Scams

Updated: Aug 4


Currently there are scams in Opensea.io that are being committed to steal people's cryptocurrencies out of their Metamask.io wallets. If you see an offer that may be too good to be true, be aware, it may be a scam. If you open the browser and access the NFT marketplace that is known as Opensea, under your profile you may review offers that are availably made by those that may be interested in your collection.

At first glance these offers may seem legitimate. But then you realize that these offers are usually for hidden items in your freely airdropped list from projects that you may have never heard of.

Usually freely airdropped NFTs are nothing to drool over. These projects usually don't last and may be delisted after several months of attempting to lure in buyers. As such is the case with unverified collections and creators of NFTs, make sure that the NFTs you buy are from both verified collections and verified creators.

Posted above this text is a screenshot of offers made for freely airdropped NFTs that have been dropped into our company's Opensea account. At first 1.17 Ethereum sounds like alot of money to not pass up, but if you attempt to accept such trades for NFTs that have been freely airdropped to you, errors may pop up that do not allow you to make the trade. These errors occur because the collection is a scam and thus the creator has bugged them so that these trades may not go through. Also, the fact that several of the NFTs that had offers for purchases were delisted proves that user 55CE90 (pictured above) is attempting to scam us but is failing to keep his collection in tact.

BE CAREFUL NOT TO OPEN THE FREELY AIRDROPPED NFTs' PICTURE OR LINKS INCLUDED IN THEIR DESCRIPTION SINCE THEY CAN BUG YOUR COMPUTER WITH VIRUSES THAT GIVE HACKERS ACCESS TO YOUR WALLET!!!

We are not certain how many wallets have been affected by such schemes but there are perhaps many countless wallets that have lost their balance to this new and tricky hack that hackers have managed to implement.
