A woman all the way from Los Angeles has been booked into the Mahoning County Jail after allegedly scamming a Canfield woman out of over $7,400.

According to a police report, police were alerted to the matter back in October of 2023 when the female victim reported her losses to them.

The victim says the suspect, Delilah Benedis sent her text messages asking for her help in transferring money between bank accounts, for some money in return.

Through several money apps like Zelle, Cash-App and Apple Pay, the victim sent Benedis money.

As a result, her account was frozen by PayPal and she had a negative balance of $7,400, despite disputing the balance.

She additionally had a negative balance of $1,200 from her Huntington Bank Account.

At this time, Benedis had said she would help to correct the issue, but never followed through and stopped responding to messages sent by the victim.

An investigation found that while Benedis did make four money transfers amounting to $9,880 to Wiseman's PayPal, every one of those transactions was later disputed and put on hold.

Officers attempted to reach Benedis several times during the investigation but had no luck reaching her.

That is until she was flagged on a flight from Cancun, Mexico into Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Canfield Officers, along with Cleveland Police arrested Benedis and booked her into the Mahoning County Jail.
