Faze Clan Suspends Members Accused Of ‘Pump and Dump’ Scam 


FaZe Clan fans were left in a state of shock when it was alleged that some of its members including FaZe Kay, were involved in a charity cryptocurrency scam. This was done under the charity campaign ‘Save The Kids’ which is for underprivileged children around the world. The scam is referred to as a ‘pump and dump’ operation which is infamously known as the Ponzi scheme.

The influencers involved in the scam were all associated with FaZe. They promoted the digital currency to their followers and encouraged their fans to buy the crypto after which they would then dump at a higher price and cause the crypto currency’s price to fall considerably. The main victims of these manipulated transactions are mainly small investors which in this case were the FaZe fans.

The scam was first reported by ‘OrdinaryGamers,’ a Canadian YouTuber, who released a video appealing for a federal investigation into the Faze Clan. Built on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), the $KIDS cryptocurrency was introduced as a charity token. There was a video released in which Kay promised to share the wealth to the holders and charities involved.

The unregulated market of the currency and the lack of knowledge about it has resulted in many people losing their money to scammers. It is always advised to do proper market research before deciding to invest money into it.
