The fake wallets are an escalation in phishing attempts following a 2020 data breach that exposed 272,000 customer addresses. Hardware wallet provider Ledger reminded users that a series of new scams that used fake Ledger hardware wallets to defraud user assets have recently occurred. Some users whose information was leaked a year ago received packages requiring users to replace their hardware wallets. Including a fake official letter and a tampered Ledger hardware wallet. Ledger stated that the letter stated in the letter that "you need to replace the existing hardware wallet to protect your funds" is a scam, and the bonus Ledger Nano is also fake. If the user enters the seed word according to the instructions in the letter, the user's encrypted assets will be stolen .
