Internet celebrity and confessed scammer Xian Gaza gave his thoughts about the current issue faced by actor Luis Manzano after he became involved in an alleged scam worth P100-M.
It can be recalled that several investors of Flex Fuel Corporation claimed that the said company didn’t give them the profit they promised to them.
Luis also received charges because the company labeled him as their ‘Chairman/Owner.’
The complainants also said they invested millions of pesos because they thought they were really doing business with the actor.
However, Luis clarified that he was no longer part of the said company.
The actor also said that Ildefonso “Bong” Medel Jr. was managing the business.
According to Xian, there’s a possibility that Luis trusted Medel Jr., who became the ‘best man’ in the wedding of the actor and Jessy Mendiola.
“Nag-propose ng business idea si best man. Nasilaw ang Luis sa napakagandang projection. Sumang-ayon siya na maging front ng kumpanya. Si best man ang bahala sa buong operations and management.” Xian said.
“Itinayo ni best man ang mga negosyo. Yung actual income ay sobrang layo sa kanyang ipinangakong projection. Nadismaya ang mga investors. Binabawi ang kanilang mga kapital. Hindi maibalik ni best man dahil nagamit na nga sa mga negosyo. Ngayon, scammer na si best man.” he added.
Xian believed that some investors were calling it a ‘scam’ because the company didn’t reach its promised target profit.
“Ganyan naman talaga sa Pilipinas. Kapag successful yung negosyo mo, respetado ka ng lahat. Panginoon ka ng lahat. Pero kapag nag-fail yung negosyo mo, scammer ka na bigla.” he said.
The internet celebrity also believed that Luis may held liable because he still became part of the said company.
“Legally speaking, sasabit talaga si Luis kahit ano pa ang gawin niyang paghuhugas-kamay dahil naging parte siya ng kumpanya. Kahit hindi siya nakinabang financially eh naging accessory siya sa pagkuha ng investments.” he stated.
