A Twitter phishing scam hacked verified accounts, some of which had Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) profile pictures. The scam sought to defraud crypto-savvy users of a little more than $1 million this week through a phony ApeCoin airdrop.

This week's fake airdrop lured victims with an ostensibly legitimate tweet coming from hacked accounts, which read, "Launch of Ape Coin has been a big success! We have collectively decided to airdrop some more to active NFT Traders/Holders. If you don't currently own NFTs, you can claim with a 0.33 ETH fee!
