Ahead of the 14th October premiere of the ABC docuseries (which covers a new con story each week), Benita posted on Instagram about the impact that Paolo has had on her life. She shared that many women have contacted her with similar stories since she opened up about her experience. She went on to say that it can truly happen to anyone.  "Trust me, admitting that you got conned, especially as a smart, successful woman, is excruciatingly painful. On top of the devastating shock of realizing the person you loved never even existed, you feel stupid, humiliated, and embarrassed," Benita wrote. "Going public opens you up to all the hateful trolls and naysayers who take sick joy in mocking and taking stabs at you from behind the anonymity of their computers." "I've long since learned to stand strong against all of that - for one, extremely important reason - I'm now on a mission to help other women expose the men who've conned them, and to spread awareness about love cons and remove the stigma that continues to perpetuate that says you're stupid if you're a woman who falls for a con man. I promise you, you are NOT ..." she continued in her caption.
