A foreigner in the name of ALBERT BENTON is trying to lure women in exchange of marriage and money. He is using a fake Facebook account so his real identity is hard to find.
A viral Facebook post of Warning to ALL Ladies, aims to notify the public about the money extortion activity of Albert Benton.
A certain Albert Benton from London, United Kingdom is trying to extort money from women, especially aged women. According to one of his victims, he will befriend you on Facebook and will court those who show interest on him.
He will also show a Trust Fund Certificate to his victim and a bank cheque to certify the inheritance from his deceased father.
Once the victim believes on his tell-tale story, he will start to look for ways to extort money from the victim. One of his alibi is that, he needs money so he can start the process of claiming the inheritance from his father. In return, Benton promises to marry the woman and give her money.
He will promise you countless times and will also continually ask for money.
The money is mostly sent in Malaysia through different names. He never asked for money which was addressed to Albert Benton, a clear indication that it is not his real name.
His victims, mostly widows and old-maids, were already asking for help from the local police. Sad to say, the extortionist is hard to find because he is using a fake name in his Facebook account.
Currently, this case is under investigation since this is clearly a modus operandi of a group of criminals.
This information serves as a stern reminder to everyone, not just women, to always be vigilant at all times and avoid giving money to strangers.
One of his victim already spent almost 1 million pesos on him. The suspect allegedly asked for this amount gradually.
In case you have encountered the same situation, feel free to report the incident to authorities.
As of the moment, the Facebook post already has 33,312 shares, 10 thousand reactions and 8,500 comments.

he was in a doctor suit with a small boy he calls his son and claimed to be a widower, the next thing I saw him requesting me to add he was in a military uniform so I told him to back off and told him he is a scammer which was why nothing happened

It is so naive to be giving money to somebody you have not known for long. In this age of advancing technology, even scammers have upgraded themselves… I wonder why they would introduce themselves as an Englishman. What’s in that nationality for most Filipinas to fall as victim?
First off, you should wonder why would people start giving out money to random strangers they just chatted for a few hours or days.. I got this guy on facebook, named James Wilson who claims to be from the navy. The exchange of personal details was kept at minimum level until he would initiate a cheesy conversation to start the pace.. He would tell me that he loves me and he wants to be with me in this country and asks if I could show him some pictures of houses with prices so he could arrange a money transfer to my account which not surprisingly never got talked about till the end.. I knew where this was heading so I pretended to believe his words and heeded everything, and to every instructions he gave.. He told me to email a certain address, which was a dead giveaway, The email address was [email protected]… He made me send a scripted request so I could get authorization from an imaginary bank… Haha… I told him I only have around 3000 dollars worth of money in my account and Im worried that the bank might question me for hauling in 50k out of nowhere.. So, that roused his intention to scam me more than before thinking I really have all that money.. And to this time, he still thinks he got me in the game… Lets wait and see where this goes, and whichever direction it goes, the outcome will only be pure disappointment for him.. hahaha.. i really am having a good time trolling a scammer
