Bored Ape Yacht Club whale Franklinisbored had his account locked — and then unlocked — by OpenSea while the NFT collector and personality attempted to resolve a customer service issue over the weekend.
Franklin, who owns 60 Apes, initially reported his account was marked as compromised by OpenSea after he asked the marketplace for a refund of fees for purchasing a hacked Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT from a collection-wide offer. The Ape was purchased back by the user with the hacked account.
OpenSea reportedly refunds commission fees for hacked purchases, according to Franklin.
Franklin said his account and GhostTrapper's account were locked in response to the request.
The marketplace later unlocked Franklin's account, including five Apes that were supposed to remain marked as compromised.
At 1:35 p.m. ET, Franklin reported his account was "back to normal."

TD helped compile five years' worth of invoices to uncover a long-established practice of small-town government officials paying themselves six figures to do small jobs around town.
TD discovered NFTs with Top Shot in 2021 and his first NFTs on ETH were saving two Mooncats. He is now the proud owner of Rowhome #61 and 1,300 other NFTs of questionable value.
He also sent 4 ETH to a fake Mekaverse site and wants Lucky Trader readers to avoid the same fate.
