Ledger Customers Are Being Mailed Fake Wallets to Steal Their Private Seeds

​Scammers are reportedly mailing fake hardware wallets to Ledger customers to steal their private seeds. According to the statements of a Reddit user, he received a package sent by Ledger with a legit-looking Ledger Nano X. The package also contained a letter that stated their current wallet was compromised.

​For security purposes, we have sent you a new device you must switch to a new device to stay safe. There is a manual inside your new box you can read that to learn how to set up your new device.

​The package reportedly included instructions to set up the new cryptocurrency wallet with the private key. However, upon further inspection, the hardware wallet mailed was a modified version of the original Nano X. Also, this modified wallet contained a series of different connections inside of the device.

​The Ledger web page has updated its phishing campaign page to alert users of this new modus operandi.
