Former Viva Hot Babes members Maui Taylor and Katya Santos claimed they have been fooled by a Filipino promoter after performing in a series of shows in Dubai last week.
Taylor exposed on her Facebook account the identity of the promoter, a certain Engr. Mardilito Daya Go, who ran off with their talent fess and return plane tickets causing them to be stranded in the United Arab Emirates for more than two days.
Taylor also reposted in her Facebook page some text messages from an unidentified Filipino resident in Dubai who had filed an estafa case against Go and his wife for unpaid debts amounting to 900,000 dirham (P10.9 million). The messages further indicated that Go’s wife was detained by Dubai police on Monday and was facing deportation because she and her husband have been staying in Dubai illegally. Go was still at large.
The Go couple allegedly swindled other Filipino artists in the past, such as singer Gerald Santos and the Sexbomb dance group.
