In a tweet sent out early on February 4, 2023, by CertiK Alert, the account is moving money from different phishing attacks. According to the crypto security company, the address has moved 981 ETH in the last 97 days.

Etherscan shows that the Fake Phishing7064 account has a balance of 604 ETH worth $1 million. On February 3, at 7 p.m. UTC, about 8.55 ETH came from wallet address 0x70747df6ac244979a2ae9ca1e1a82899d02bbea4. There have been more than 20 transactions at this address in the last week.

NFT Theft Reported Following Etherscan Phishing Attack

In November 2022, a phishing attack caused a Psychedelic NFT investor to lose their Psychonaut NFT. The investor reported the theft on Twitter and blamed the site for not being able to help him get back his stolen NFT.

A Twitter user named MetaLif3 replied to the victim and said they had been tricked into visiting a fake website, which caused their money to be stolen. After the attacker sold the Psychonaut NFT, the money from the trade was sent to the Fake Phishing7064 address.

Be very careful when interacting with Fake Phishing7046 and other accounts like it. Fake Phishing7030, Fake Phishing6103, and Fake Phishing7045 are all similar accounts that you should keep a close eye on. Also, Etherscan just released ETH Protect, which lets users protect their accounts by finding bad ETH addresses and marking them.
