Twitter crypto scammers are now targeting Moonbirds NFTs, a project by entrepreneurs Kevin Rose and Ryan Carson. It’s a collection of 10,000 pixelated owls that have raked millions in sales within days.

Scammers trying to get some money off successful NFT projects is a recurring theme now.

Last month, they were successful in stealing NFTs worth more than $500,000 from Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) owners.

After opening up NFT minting on Saturday, the project has clocked over $290 million in sales across Opensea and Looksrare.
