Businessman Xian Gaza's response to scam allegations: "My bitter past was never a secret and [I'm] even publicly open about it."


Young businessman Xian Gaza still wants to have that coffee date with Erich Gonzales even after allegations that he is a scammer surfaced.

The 24-year-old Xian, who described himself as the CEO of the startup company Guanxiquian Group, put up a crude, if huge, billboard last July 1, along Morayta Avenue in Manila, to invite Erich to a coffee date.

“I'm not after fame, all I want is a coffee date,” he said on his Facebook post, Tuesday, July 4.

The businessman also defended himself against scam allegations, writing, “My bitter past was never a secret and [I'm] even publicly open about it.”

His latest Facebook post contained screenshots of his June 20 and June 22 posts, where he talked about his financial struggles.

On his June 20 post, Xian said that he got involved in a pyramiding scam when he was 19, which led to his accumulating a personal debt of P13.9 million.

He said, “I became a victim 'distributor' and technically, yes, a FORMER SCAMMER.”

Xian claimed that he received death threats, criminal charges, court subpoenas, and warrants of arrest when he was 20 years old.

“I literally, literally lost everything in my life including my dignity but not my FAITH and MY LOVE FOR GOD!”

On his Facebook post last June 22, Xian talked about the company he personally founded, the Gazaboy Group of Companies.

He said that his company was doing legitimate business with several “cafes, restobars, gelato distribution, and woodworks manufacturing, under nine DTI business registrations and three SEC registered stock corporations.”

However, he lost millions because of his “wrong decisions both in business and in personal life.”

According to Xian, he is still paying his former partners and investors “up to this day until 2019—a total of PHP250,000 every month since 2014. Indeed, a 14 million-peso tuition fee.”

BLACK PROPAGANDA. On his post today, he said again: “Pagkabangon na pagkabangon ko, I entered into a legal settlement to each and every character who became part of those dark chapters of my life.

“Monthly financial settlements and two (2) judicial court settlements are still on-going up to this day and yup, I'm very open sa lahat ng iyon publicly.”

Xian then slammed people who claim to have been victimized by his scam.

“If you are after legal, financial and moral damages claims just like the others, you will contact me directly for a personal settlement, send a demand letter through a lawyer/law firm or file a case to the respective City Prosecutors Office or Judicial Courts.

“But of course if hindi kayo doon after eh you will all execute a series of highly organized black propaganda publicly to destroy me and ride with the fame that comes with it.

“Perfect timing and perfect opportunity na eh.”

A netizen calling herself Dewanie Catapang accused Xian of being a scammer in a series of Twitter posts today.

Negative comments have rained down on Xian since, but he said would not turn off the comment option on his Facebook profile.

“Consider it all as a freedom wall and freely express whatever you want, it's a free country anyway.

“Just make sure that you can stand firm on each and every stones that you will throw,” he said.

He added, “From bottom of my heart, thank you so much for the national attention. May God bless us all.”
