We take fraud very seriously at OpenSea and mobilize around neutralizing threats on our platform as soon as we identify them. The sale of stolen items, converted items, fraudulently obtained items, items taken without authorization, and other illegally obtained items on OpenSea is prohibited.
This guide explains how we handle stolen item reports and explains how you can contact us if you are affected.
Checking the item on OpenSea
When OpenSea receives a credible report or learns that an item is stolen, we lock the item so it cannot be bought, sold, or transferred using OpenSea. Items that have been locked will feature a red banner on the item page, indicating they are locked.
Please note that freezing items on OpenSea does not prevent users from using other platforms not controlled by OpenSea or interacting directly with the blockchain to transfer/sell the items. We are a peer to peer platform for buyers/sellers to connect with one another and do not have custody of the NFTs.
What should I do if my item is affected?
If you have reason to believe that an item listed on OpenSea was illegally obtained, please contact us immediately at email@example.com.
Please include the item URL, the collection or contract address and evidence demonstrating that the item was illegally obtained.
