FaZe Kay claims innocense after SaveTheKids crypto scandal

Call of Duty player and former FaZe Clan content creator Frazier “Kay” Khattri spoke up about the SaveTheKids crypto scandal after being removed from the controversial esports organization. 

Kay begged followers not to believe what they saw online in a YouTube video he posted on July 9. He claimed that an unnamed “conman” had tricked him into believing in SaveTheKids. Kay was encouraged to be an ambassador for the SaveTheKids crypto token, and then the unnamed conman changed the code before the launch to purposely screw over everyone involved. 

“All of these people making videos think they know the truth and know who is responsible when they just don’t. But this is the truth. I lost money on the SaveTheKids token but what upsets me the most is if anybody else was hurt,” Kay said. 

Kay explained that it was allegedly uncovered that a “dishonest person” had tricked Kay and his friends into being the public face of “his scheme.” He then “abused” that trust in order to get a six-figure profit for himself, “leaving the rest of us to be blamed.” 

According to Kay, his group of friends are conducting an independent and “aggressive” investigation. He also said that lawyers and the authorities are involved. Kay then thanked his followers for their continued support, saying that the least he could do to help them was to get the “conman” behind bars. 

“If you lost any money on SaveTheKids token, please share your story with us so we can provide authorities with all the information they need to hold him accountable and make sure he’s never able to do this sort of thing again,” Kay said, providing the email infoforstk@gmail.com

Despite his shaky voice, fans noticed that Kay never apologized for his involvement in the scheme. Instead, it seemed that Kay had shifted all of the blame onto the unnamed trickster. 

Even if Kay is innocent of some of what he’s been accused of, he’s already been removed from FaZe Clan by CEO Richard “FaZe Banks” Bengston. Banks recently spoke out about the situation, explaining that Kay and the other involved FaZe Clan members should have gone to him for advice first. This led to some fans to call out FaZe Banks for his own involvement in sketchy crypto schemes
