Messages have appeared online about phishing emails among users of Trezor hardware crypto wallets.

The problem was brought to the attention of on-chain detective ZachXBT, who issued a warning in his Telegram channel.
According to him, one of the users received an “infected” letter to an email that he specially created to order a Trezor device.
The account was registered about six months ago, so the expert suggested a data leak on the part of the wallet manufacturer or the British delivery company Evri.
Similar assumption expressed Reddit user Avid28193:
Trezor responded to the situation; the company is currently “studying this issue.”
Hi, thanks for letting us know, we are looking into it.
We would like to remind all our users that the Trezor company never asks for users’ recovery seed, PIN, or passphrase. We suggest checking this article on how to stay safe in our knowledgebase

Previously, cybersecurity startup Unciphered posted a video on YouTube with the hacking of the seed phrase of the Trezor T wallet.
In September, Pocket Univers analysts warned about phishing through Discord servers – attackers embed malicious links in messages.
That same month, journalists reported that criminals began using the URLs of government websites in several countries to defraud users of the non-custodial crypto wallet MetaMask and steal their assets.
