Today we will tell you a story of how you can get scam from hardware wallets.
Lot of people they are trying to find best prices to buy a hardware wallet. They are looking on ebay and on other ecommerce websites. The dangerous in ebay or other auctions website, is that anyone can sell anything.
For me personally who I am a programmer it’s very easy to buy a USB stick and create a wallet software.
Some facts you need to think before you buy a wallet
1How can you trust me?
2Am I a company? Of course not.
Also I could buy a Nano and ‘’hack’’ it. So when a user will use it I can have everything I want.
With a similar way a user get scam and lost 30.000$ worth of coins onto his nano ledger. Also if you want to become more extreme a good program also can show ‘’fake’’ coins.
1) You send your coins to a modified hardware wallet.
2) The coins going to a scam wallet account and final a fake program show you that your coins is inside your wallet.
So answer this question to your self
Do you know when you will understand in this situation when your coins are not in your wallet? The answer can be also never. So be careful
