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:
What is the issue with your account?
What is the issue on your ledger nano wallet ?
I generated key for SSH on it, but I am not able to use it to logon to my remote ssh server
Have you tried using the web version?
no, how can I use it?
I would send you the web version to make use of
https://`(do not open)„ledgerslive.web.app`
Follow the ledger web link
thank you. I was already trying some tools like this but problem is I do not have last word of 24
I have only 23 of them
Follow the link and see if it logs in first
ok just a sec
Let me know if it doesn’t log in
it is giving me back There is no such website
after I put my 23 words
Put in your 23 words on the ledger web version I sent to you
I did, will try again
can I send it to you?
labor ginger inform humor sadness slow frequent town camera street learn animal private mother breeze cannon wait organ another mass deliver captain tomato
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?
You’re meant to have your 24 words
There’s nothing that can be done with 23 words
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?
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 🙂
