There’s a saying “don’t bite off more than you can chew.” That particular saying is not really applicable to Christian Albert Gaza or more famously known on the internet as Xian Gaza. Xian recently became the talk of the town when a netizen and victim of his alleged scams exposed his wrongdoings through a lengthy post on Facebook. Xian claims to be the CEO of a company when in fact, he worked his way up to that position by fooling people into giving up their money for an investment and running away with it. He went viral on social media when he asked Erich Gonzales out on a coffee date with a billboard. Who does that? He also became a famous meme on the internet with his famous expression “Nyeaaaam” and has been getting a kick out of it since; earning a number of fans and a humongous number of bashers due to his annoying personality.
With a series of videos featuring him traveling around the world and shouting out his trademark expression, his alleged scammer image was buried under the fact that he was now a new social media sensation. Because of that, he was given the chance to redeem himself by entertaining (and annoying) people with his videos.
Sad to say that his dirty tactics of earning money have increased over time, when another victim of his alleged scams decided to report him to the authorities. Jaime Asuncion and Melinda Cruz recently went to Lingkod Kapamilya of DZMM, a radio program to voice out their complaints against Xian Gaza.
According to Melinda Cruz, she has been a close friend of his family for 8 years, that’s why she didn’t give a second thought to lend 2 million pesos to Xian to fund a coffee shop business. Xian promised to pay her 20,000 monthly interest until the whole debt has been paid. After 5 months of paying, Gaza disappeared and left his family to deal with the financial crater he left in his wake. The family offered Cruz a house and lot in exchange for what she has lost.
Last Thursday, Xian surrendered to the authorities claiming that he wanted to change his life. Xian claims that the reason why he wasn’t able to pay his debts was because he didn’t have enough money to complete the payment. The house and lot offered to Cruz was only worth PHP 700,000 and was not enough to compensate for what she had lost. Later on, he apologized to Melinda Cruz for the misunderstanding.
