Popular NFT creator Nickydooodles.eth has been scammed, losing 17 ETH and their entire NFT collection, including Doodles NFTs. This scam resulted from Nickydooodles.eth receiving a document, and the scammer stole their full NFT net worth upon clicking it. This is another example of the importance of NFT security and taking caution online.
NFT scams often depend on an interaction that requires you to click on a link, open a document, etc. In this instance, it was the absolute worst-case scenario. The hacker could access their entire crypto net worth within minutes of Nickydooodles.eth opening a document.
The first thing the scammer did was take 17.8 ETH ($21,077) from the account. After this, they stole a Goblintown NFT, a Doodles NFT, a Sandbox Land token and others. Within twenty minutes, the hacker took everything from the wallet of the Metabergs creator.
What’s more, the hacker also managed to secure hold of Nickydooodles.eth Twitter account. Because of this, the person could delete all tweets Nicky made about the scam.
In a tweet about the nightmare situation, they said, “This has been deleted twice by the #scammer but lost all my Doodles, goblintown and foxfam plus loads of other NFT delights. All gone, eth too. Starting from the ground up. Wish me luck.”
Explaining how the horrible NFT scam occurred, NickyDooodles.eth said, “Some lad pretended to want to collab with me and sent a ‘brief’ document. I opened it. The end.”
The NFT scam relied on the victim clicking on a link and opening a document. Obviously, this document had something malicious attached to it. This is what allowed the scammer to steal all of NickyDooodles.eth’s NFTs. The account belonging to the NFT scammer is no longer available, and it appears they have deleted it completely.
It would be best if you took extra caution when interacting with others in the NFT space. Do not click on any suspicious links, and ensure you keep up to date with the latest scams.
NFT scammers want to be your friend and will also try to help you or offer you unrealistic NFT offers etc. In recent weeks, there has been a rise in these sorts of hacks and this latest one which includes expensive NFTs such as Doodles, highlights how easy it can be.
In response to numerous high-profile NFT scams, many community members are working on ways to improve security. One of the companies working with NFT security is Ledger, the hardware wallet storage specialist. 
Ledger Connect is a brand new wallet browser extension. This will improve and also add an extra layer of security to the entire Ledger ecosystem. It means that NFT scams such as NickyDooodles.eth having their Doodles NFT and 17 ETH stolen, are less likely. 
Finally, NFTEvening has partnered with Ledger to provide educational materials on NFT storage and security. Together, the partnership will target newcomers to the NFT scene and help them learn proper crypto/NFT safety.
