The Ledger subreddit is continuously targeted by scammers. Ledger Support will never send you private messages. Never share your 24-word recovery phrase with anyone, never enter it on any website or software, even if it looks like it's from Ledger. Only keep the recovery phrase as a physical paper or metal backup, never create a digital copy in text or photo form.

Ledger do have an official store on Amazon. If you brought it from their official store you’ll be fine
What are you shaking it?? Lol.
Open it up. The ledger itself auto checks to confirm authenticity. Personally I'd buy directly from Ledger website, but the official ledger on Amazon should be fine (and cheaper returns I imagine if your battery is dead)
Because he’s an idiot
I think he’ll type it in a computer document which gets uploaded to icloud
Or excited.. damn man bad day?
I'm guessing it's the USB cable moving
Bc if you ever bought one you would know that it comes packed with fitted foam and instruction/cards for your seed words. I'd be worried too seeing as how it's rattling around means it's been open.
I mean, that's fair. But I'd just open it and see what's going on instead of making a video of myself rattling it on Reddit.
True true lol
But rattle rattle rattle!
Malicious wallet: yep.. I’m authentic!
Isn't it the app checking the nano of it's authentic?
Umm did you even look at the seller..?
You know there is a cable and some papers inside, right?!
Was expecting them to be packaged I looked at other unboxing from official manufacturer which I'd assume gets fulfilled by Amazon regardless and it was the same
I don't understand it. It's a box, with stuff inside and if you shake it, that's what you get. But how was it packed than? If you doubt, post a picture. Was it still in that plastic seal when you got it?
Yea it was but still concerning I looked at other unboxing "ordered from manufacturer and they were packed the same I'm just extremely paranoid as I've heard all the horror stories in my research
Dude, just friggin open the box and follow directions from ledger.com.
Someone else coming have the seed phrase already if he didn’t buy it directly from ledger, I would return it and buy from the official site
[This ](https://youtu.be/Fm0sd5eUoNM) is from the official website. This shows how I received my wallet. If your package looked different than I would return it.
This is exactly why I ordered at Ledger instead of a third-party, I'm paranoid too.
maybe shake it harder? 🤔.
Light It on fire if it smells like plastic there’s a ledger inside
Maybe also smash it with a hammer just to make sure it’s really a ledger
Also can't be hacked anymore. OP is safu
Is that mr chow’s thumb in the background?
Can’t tell because you’re shaking it around you sponge
NEVER BUY YOUR WALLET FROM ANOTHER PLACE, ONLY GET IT IN OFFICIAL LEDGER WEBSITE.
YOUR WALLET CAN BE COMPROMISED FROM OTHER PEOPLE!!!!
Except ledger leaked everyone’s address that one time
Yeah literally all my shit got leaked by something I spent money on to secure my info. Funny how that plays out
Thts y I used Amazon cuz I had my info with them and ledger has officially stated they use them as retailer
But had nothing to do with the actual wallet
Well, it‘s not a Kinder Surprise, so no need to shake before opening it.
It comes with a chain for your Ledger
Send me your pass phrase. I'll double check it for you.
Don’t worry he shake up the pass phrase for you as well
My wife's boyfriend would like him.
Never buy it from anywhere except the Ledger website.
OP Are you 5 years old?
Manufacturers only. NEVER buy something like that without supply chain custody/control.
If it's not in its cradle...and boxed properly like a un boxing on you tube.. Return it.
Save your anxiety and mental health. Return it until your satisfied. I know someone who got one but then ordered from official ledger. Dumped the amazon one to a new one. Don't trust the amazon one. Better off return it and buy from official site. Believe me... Your mental health will thank you in the long run. Less security and comfortability will bring risks to your assets.
You’re a fool
Sall good fo me
Is that spray paint?
Turn it around and shake it. If it makes the same noise then keep repeating till it stopes.
Ive gotten a few knock off items from Amazon, I always go to the actual vendor, then you don't have to ask this question. Amazon kindve sucks, about 25% of the items I have gotten off their arnt what they were advertised, really good fakes that most people would shrug off and not know. For me, I can confirm Amazon isn't 100% on selling legit items, I've compared the real items to fake 1s. Having friends or myself later getting the real item because the knock off breaks.
Mine is hacked
I prefer my ledger stirred, not shaken.
Hi! Thank you for the trust you put in our products.
If you set up your Ledger device yourself (you set your own pin code and generated a recovery phrase that you have written down), download Ledger Live from our official website, and connect successfully to Ledger Live (that checks the authenticity of the cryptographic key embedded in the device), your Ledger device is safe to use ;)
You can find more information on how to check if your Ledger device is genuine in this article:
making milk shake?
I did I also after first boot I reset again
Next time buy directly from ledger.com
Ledger takes 3 weeks to a month to deliver
It shouldn't shake in your hand like that
Jeez . Buy from ledger and not the bookstore .
Yeah I bought mine directly from ledger
There is a key ring and a lanyard in the box. Mine did not make this noise when I got it. Have heard rumors of someone installing some type of maleware on these.
Returning things to Amazon is easy. Return that Ledger and order one from the Ledger website.
I'd only but from Ledger direct. Not sure what your portfolio size is but no matter the size...it's not worth the risk to save 5 or 10 bucks.
I’d return it. No reason to not buy directly from ledger.
Why Amazon? Why not buy directly from Ledger?
Definitely send it back and buy from official site. No need to F around.
Buy directly on the platform, sometimes intermediaries can take your keys and open your Wallet times later from a remote place, and you would never know what happened.
Can I ask if this is a worry people have bc it could 'potentially happen', or whether its something documented as having occurred however many times/the malware used in such cases was confirmed?
I'm not doubting you, and better to be cautious, I'm just curious about it
This can only happen if you use the pre-configured wallet in case your device is compromised.
Yes. You should only ever buy direct from ledger. Send it back now
