Razzlekhan attempts to clear her image
Heather Morgan, a prime accused in the money laundering case, got respite. Morgan denies accusations of being actively involved in endorsing NFT or crypto projects. The scam probably ruined her image, which made her attempt to appear crystal clean. After her release, she tweeted for her fans, claiming she was not part of any crypto or NFT forgery.
Just a few days before her arrest, Morgan launched a single “bleeding buckets” on Spotify. The rapper’s tweet was short but appealed to fans worldwide. She goes about by mentioning that any scam which includes her name should be treated as fake. Well, investigations revealed that the rapper and her husband were looting millions, and now her statement can be taken as a dire attempt to build a mutilated reputation.
Looking back at the couple’s crime
The couple got much media attention when police invaded their residence and got substantial proof of their involvement in scams. Investigators found over $40k cash, heater phones, gold coins, international money and two hollowed-out publications.
