The researcher accused Monkey Drainer-scamers of theft of cryptocurrencies for $ 1 million
In just 24 hours, a group of benches, known as Monkey Draainer, stole crypto assets through a fishing for about $ 1 million. This was announced by the onchain-research under the nickname Zachxbt.
A significant part of the losses were carried by two users with Ethereum-pickers, which end at 0x02A and 0x626.
“Tenately, they lost $ 370,000 by signing transactions on the phishing sites controlled by Monkey Drainer,” the expert said.
The examples of malicious online sites brought by them attracted users with fake airdrodes now-for-eared projects like Aptos and RTFKT.
Another victim lost 14 NFT, including tokens from BayC https://gagarin.news/ and Clonex top collections, as well as 36,000 USDCs. The total cost of stolen assets was ~ $ 150,000, Zachxbt noted.
According to him, “fortunately”, the network rejected some transactions, since the addresses of the benches were marked.
Thanks to this, the user (from 0x626), which in the wallet stored assets by about $ 6.2 million, lost “only” ~ $ 220,000.
The total amount of funds stolen by the group exceeds $ 3.5 million and is growing every day, the expert noted.
“Please be especially attentive when visiting unknown sites, before connecting the wallet and signing transactions,” the expert said.
