Fraudulent Ledger Nano S Wallets on Ebay

  • There is one particularly sad story about a user who bought a fraudulent ledger nano s hardware wallet on Ebay from a third party seller.

    When it arrived, something was amiss. The wallet came with a pre-generated seed word combination. The user (who was new to crypto) thought nothing of it and used the seed words to set up his wallet. 

    He then transferred roughly $30k to the wallet and left it for over a week. Unfortunately for the victim, the scammer could also access this device and did so promptly. They stole the coins and left the user to reach out on reddit forums for help.

    This is indeed a sad story. I just wanted to share so that more can learn from his mistake and make sure that they don't fall victim to similar scams.
