I was attacked by the scammer but returned him a favor

Ursprünglich erschienen auf: https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/gmitxr/i_was_attacked_by_the_scammer_but_returned_him_a/

Just recently I put a post to Ledger sub asking about help with setting up SSH keys on it. The next day I got a request for a direct chat from: supportuser

I know several stories about scammers using names like these and trying to get seeds from the victims. Well it turned out it was exactly this case. The user wanted me to enter my seed on fake Ledger website.

I told myself why not to play with him a bit. I gave him only 23 words of completely random seed and told him I forgot the last one. Also pointing out I have some BTC on my Ledger, well I hope he spent some time trying to complete the seed :)))))

I am putting the chat below – be careful about this user and also about links he provides – never enter your mnemonic seed anywhere!

My chat with him:

please let me know if it works

I have also some BTC there

this is also a problem because without the last word if something happens to my ledger I cannot get it back

do you know how many words are on the list?

supportuser Snoovatar

supportuser21:02

You’re meant to have your 24 words

There’s nothing that can be done with 23 words

emreddit Snoovatar

emreddit21:02

I know, I did not written the last one intentionally I was thinking I will remember :(

but there is not many on the list right? In Ledger company don't you have some script to try all last words?

supportuser Snoovatar

supportuser21:04

No way

emreddit Snoovatar

emreddit21:04

oops

ok so I will need to buy another ledger

and send it to it asap, right?

And then he never replied back, I hope he is still trying 🙂
