TL;DR: Ledger wallet is not a scam at all (duh) but some hackers have access to their official YouTube channel and in a livestream they are instructing users to go to the scammers website and put the 12-24 word recovery key into their ledger which (I believe) can then be read by the scam website and they will steal your keys and your crypto.
It appears that like many other YouTube channels lately, many non-crypto related, the Ledger Wallet YouTube channel has been hacked. Scammers are instructing Ledger Wallet owners to put the 12-24 word recovery key into their ledger which (I believe) can then be read by the scam website and they will steal your keys and your crypto.
The poor english, typos and excessive use of tagging in the description is typical of these sort of scammers.
