Bored Ape Yacht Club Official Instagram Account Hacked, $14M in NFTs Stolen

The scammers posted a fake announcement asking followers to connect their MetaMask wallet in order to be airdropped LAND, an upcoming governance and utility token as part of its upcoming Otherside metaverse project which is due to launch later this week. The wallets of those who clicked the link appear to have been compromised, with a series of Bored Apes and Mutant Apes being transferred to new wallets by the hackers.
