Gina Darling Accuses Man of Scamming and Abusing Asian Women by Pretending to Have PTSD

Frankie Gatdula, an employee at a gaming company, is being accused of physically abusive and manipulative behavior by several women, including YouTuber Gina Darling. 

According to a Facebook post from Gatdula’s ex-girlfriend, Cyndy Nguyen, he allegedly attempted to crash his car while she was inside then tried to run her over with his vehicle when she attempted to escape. She wrote in the post:

“Almost 10 years and he’s still scamming everyone around him to ‘help him out’ financially… please don’t fall victim to his nice guy routine.

“The statute of limitation has passed so I regret not taking action sooner but know that there are definite reasons as to why our relationship ended and that you actually do not know what this guy is capable of. I’ve blocked the exact date and time from memory but I will never forget him putting me in harm’s way by trying to hold me hostage and crashing his car on two attempts — and yes I did unbuckle and prepped myself to jump out. Once I got out of his car, he then jumped the curb with his car and try to run me over. I wish I was joking.”

According to Nguyen, Gatdula appears to be targeting vulnerable young women and manipulating them.

“And girls… particularly be aware that he will say whatever it takes to sway you to feel sorry for him and to get close to you. To everyone else who follows any community: dance, gaming, YouTube artists… he WILL name drop and stretch his connections to make it seem like he will do or say whatever it takes to convince you that he’s the real deal.

“Can you think of those who will fall for this? High Schoolers and minors… yes… he has played this card multiple times too to fool them by plugging into their interests. He prides himself on being able to ‘represen’ people and products with his sales tactics that he has gained while working in retail… this is what he loves to do…”

Nguyen’s comments have also been verified and supported by Gina Darling, who has had her own fair share of uncomfortable experiences with the alleged scammer.

Darling explained her side of the story in a series of tweets, writing, “He’s a predator and scammer that scammed me and many others for money + took pix of my friend while she was sleepin, crawled into bed with her, and told people he slept with her.”

In addition to these abusive behaviors, Gatdula is also being accused of scamming people out of thousands of dollars by pretending to be a war veteran with PTSD. Darling continued in a separate tweet, “He scammed me and my friends out of thousands of dollars claiming he has PTSD from being a war veteran. He was never in combat. We found out that the things he asked for help with, his PARENTS had already paid for. His own dad told me that.”

According to the YouTuber, Gatdula has repeatedly claimed to be “best friends” with Darling to trick girls into spending time with him and insisting that he could help these girls if they wanted to get into making YouTube videos.

Since these accusations surfaced and went viral, Gatdula has responded in a single tweet, admitting to the accusations of him taking photos of a sleeping woman then claiming to have slept with her.

He wrote, “Yes, it was completely creepy. I did personally apologize multiple times to her a few years ago. It doesn’t erase nor correct what I did whatsoever. I know that and it continues to haunt me years later.”
