Not many esports organisations in the world have as much pull as FaZe Clan, and when they come knocking on your door, it's a moment that will undoubtedly change your life. The elite business has recruited some of the finest talents in the industry, having become pioneers in the scene of completion and content creation.

So, when a group of VALORANT players found out that they'd been hoodwinked for eight weeks after being told they'd be joining FaZe, you can only imagine their anger, frustration, and embarrassment. 

According to Travis “tdawgg” Regan, he and his four teammates (V1C, Lunar, A77, Nerve) were deceived by Joseph “Silent” Oliver, who pretended to be FaZe Clan manager "Infamous".

FaZe Clan Impersonator Allegedly Scams Entire VALORANT Roster

According to Regan, Silent told the roster that they had been approached by Infamous to create a FaZe Clan Acadamy VALORANT roster, with each of them set to earn between $5,000 and $8,000 during their trial period. 

The con-man forged messages between himself and Infamous, which were presented to the squad as evidence.

Regan explained that the 'signing' had an impact on the personal lives of all players, including their star man V1C who turned down a chance to sign for a CS:GO MDL side in favour of 'FaZe Academy'. According to Regan's YouTube upload and screenshots from a Snapchat, Silent manipulated V1C into pursuing a career in VALORANT, rather than continue with his current venture in Counter-Strike.

FaZe Clan Manager Infamous Reveals The Truth About VALORANT Scam

With Silent posing as a middle man between the roster and the pretend Infamous, Regan admitted that it wasn't until he personally reached out to the FaZe man that he found that Infamous had no idea about the fabricated Academy team.

Regan also explained that the real Infamous indicated that Silent had a history of being a “shady character”.

Whilst Silent has apologised to the team and admitted he "regrets doing it", it's likely that Regan and his teammates will be cutting ties with him. They could also pursue legal action, especially in V1C's case who left his current post.

FaZe themselves have yet to comment, but it does go to show the scary power of the internet.
