      Attention NFT creators and collectors: A sophisticated scam involving fake NFT transaction platforms has come to light, and it’s important to spread awareness to prevent further victims. An individual has reported losing 2 ETH (approximately $4,106) to a scam that mimicked legitimate NFT marketplace, Makersplace, through fraudulent domains.

The victim was instructed to link funds equivalent to the buyer’s offer from their wallet, resulting in a loss of 2 ETH due to a supposed error requiring a second transaction.
