Hardware wallets are not impregnable, however, as one British man found to his peril after purchasing the device on Ebay.

Redditor moodyrocket is coming to terms with having his “life savings” wiped out this week, after $34,000 of crypto was stolen from his newly acquired Nano Ledger hardware wallet.

The victim was initially confused as to how the attack could have been successfully pulled off, before eventually twigging that the Ebay seller must have tampered with the device.

The vast majority of resellers stocking wallets such as Ledgers and Trezors have no intention of meddling with the devices.
