Bored Ape Whale Has OpenSea Account Temporarily Frozen

Bored Ape Whale Has OpenSea Account Temporarily Frozen

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."
