Cameron Redman is the alleged person responsible for the hacked NFT Twitter accounts over the past few months Does the name ring any bells? Well it should bc in February 2020 he SIM swapped a single person for $37 million worth of Bitcoin & Bitcoin Cash.
On February 22, 2020 Josh Jones was sim swapped for ~60k BCH & 1547 BTC
BCH victim address qzumak2rvxksjgkjuxe2fe5jxatktlsnhy5sthr5p7
BTC victim address 1 bc1qd0hveqwqu9h3x8flfq560hlyk9mptf3j2p89gg
BTC victim address 2 bc1qrwhh74sv88gzq6qgpz5u55u00w2lqprw30ke94
Immediately following the attack the Redman laundered the 60k BCH with hundreds of transactions in small amounts to centralized exchanges (CEX). This chart visualizes the movement of the 60k BCH with the majority ending up at two exchanges.
With the 1547 BTC stolen, a small portion was sent to CEXs but the majority was deposited into both Chip Mixer and Crypto Mixer.
On Nov 17 2021 Hamilton Police (Ontario, CA) formally charged Redman for the attack after working with FBI & US Secret Service They seized $5.4m worth of crypto. The rest of the $31.5m still remains missing to this day (he was underage at the time).
Since May 2022 we’ve seen popular NFT Twitter accounts hacked such as
& more The majority of these accounts all had 2FA on leaving people confused how this might happen.
The hacked Twitter accounts lead to millions of dollars worth of crypto stolen in total. This table shows a rough estimate for the amount of crypto stolen with each account above.
This lead to a post on the forum marketplace SWAPD by the user “Antihero” advertising a Twitter panel. The prices to use the panel varied from $30k to $300k paid in crypto.
On Twitter at July 29th 2022 antihero emerged with the name “Cam” on an account inactive for 14 yrs. On Instagram he obtained the same username too.
On Instagram Redman posted a selfie of himself posing in front of mirror and also outside of a shopping center.
I zoom in and then look up the location of “Sunway Dental” What do you know it happens to be in Missauga, ON very close to the Hamilton Police station in the city where he had been previously arrested in Nov 2021.
If you’re still not convinced here’s more messages of him referencing Canada. Prior to being charged for the SIM swap Redman had been also known by the aliases “Cream” “4k” “lucky” and for leaking unreleased Juice WRLD songs.
Here’s two more posts Cam/Antihero made on SWAPD. Another person refers to the seller for the panel as Cam. Archive: https://archive.ph/ABvZy
Remember in Tweet 9 Redman began to eventually resell access to the panel. On June 26 2022 Cam received a 230 ETH + 20 ETH payment for lifetime access to the Twitter panel.
Just a few hours after the payment
Who bought the Twitter panel access from Redman? Well it was the scammers known as HZ/Chase and Popbob. Here’s HZ flexing panel access to Serpent (a security researcher)
HZ + Popbob flexing Franklin and Deekay being hacked.
It’s still unclear as to how Redman gained access to the panel to make elevated requests & reset passwords. As of now it appears the method stopped working It’s wild someone can SIM swap a person for $37m, only return $5.4m, & go back to their old ways without serious jail time.
