Locked Ether in EOA Account: Fake Contract Address

I am reading the paper: CLUE: Towards Discovering Locked Cryptocurrencies in Ethereum, available at: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/346425189_CLUE_Towards_Discovering_Locked_Cryptocurrencies_in_Ethereum It says that:

Contract-creation Failure EOA: When the user deploys a smart contract in Ethereum, he/she will still receive one fake contract address if the contract-creation fails. Indeed, the received contract address does not exist in StateDB just after the contractcreation failure. However, some users might wrongly ignore the failure message and still transfer cryptocurrencies to the fake contract address, leading to cryptocurrencies locked permanently. Because the address with locked cryptocurrencies never stores code, we classify it as EOA. 

Is it possible to get a fake contract address? Is the above text correct?

NomicLabsHardhatPlugin Error …xxxxx.. is not a contract account

So, I’ve deployed an ERC1155 contract on Mumbai Testnet using Alchemy’s RPC URL. I was able to deploy the same successfully(I can see the contract on Polygonscan Mumbai) but, now when I run my server.js file it gives me the following error: NomicLabsHardhatPluginError: 0x2c89a74f61E4abA0F676b0F860AE1E0C06dD53e7 is not a contract account. and further it shows the error::Listen

So, I’ve deployed an ERC1155 contract on Mumbai Testnet using Alchemy’s RPC URL. I was able to deploy the same successfully(I can see the contract on Polygonscan Mumbai) Polyscan Snippet

but, now when I run my server.js file it gives me the following error:

NomicLabsHardhatPluginError: 0x2c89a74f61E4abA0F676b0F860AE1E0C06dD53e7 is not a contract account.

and further it shows the error is in a line which has following code:

wl = (await hre.ethers.getContractAt("WLToken", "0x2c89a74f61E4abA0F676b0F860AE1E0C06dD53e7"));

P.S: I haven’t made any spelling errors and have included all the dependencies.

Can someone please guide what am I doing wrong. I can share more details of the code, if this not sufficient enough.

-Thanks in anticipation!
