Social Media is indeed the fastest way to communicate and to relate, both to the positive and the negative. Just recently, a billboard coffee proposal to the Kapamilya actress Erich Gonzales had trended online. A certain Xian Gaza asked the young actress to drink coffee with him. What’s unusual with the invite is that it is written in a huge billboard put up in Morayta. A gesture some netizens found sweet and romantic. Erich even said to Darla Sauler that there’s nothing wrong to talk over coffee with this guy as long as Darla will come with them.
However, just a few days after the billboard had surfaced the net, people who knew Gaza personally also took on social media to exposed who Gaza really is.
Xian Gaza from romantic “Young CEO” to allegedly “scammer”
It all started with a thread on Twitter posted by Dewanie Catapang (@wanniedoo). Dewanie is a model who Gaza allegedly hired to be in his marketing team for a fund raising shirt campaign dedicated to help the Yolanda victims. According to Catapang, although Gaza did not pay her for the job she still continued exerting effort thinking that it was really for charity.

However what’s worse is that the money they earned through the fund raising never really went to the victims of the typhoon because as per Catapang whenever she asks Gaza about how many shirts they have already sold, the young CEO always changes topic or disappear. She also said that Gaza is only doing these stunts to Erich for exposure and to show his assumed wealth, or worse gather sympathizers and investors who he will scam eventually.
According to him, he met Xian through Filipino Vines, an online community on Facebook, when he planned to partner with them for events in the Philippines and overseas. During that time, Gaza was still affiliated with the said online community group hence Tañada coordinated with him.
BTW, this guy is XIAN GAZA everyone! I know this guy personally coz I worked for him once and he scammed us all! Hahaha https://t.co/zAdxhjJiMS— Dewanie Catapang. (@waniedoo) July 4, 2017
HINDI LANG SIYA SCAMMER, FEELING POGI PA SIYA. TAAS NG GUTS NIYA! HE TRIED TO FLIRT WITH ME, TENGENE BOI, DI KO TYPE NUNAL MO. Gago.— Dewanie Catapang. (@waniedoo) July 4, 2017
Ryan even said that even though he already sensed that something’s wrong with his transaction with Gaza he still trusted him regardless and gave him the money. But Gaza only proved him right and the show really did not push through because Gaza allegedly spent the money allocated supposedly for the down payment of the artist’s talent fee.
From the “young CEO Stark” to an allegedly scammer, it is worth it to hear the other side of the coin.
