London, Jan 8 (ANI): A 25-year-old man in Britain pretended to be his own wife in a bid to dupe a woman into having sex with him, it has emerged.
Benjamin Ritchie, from Derbyshire, called himself 'Marina' and struck up a friendship online with a woman, in her 20s.
He asked her to help expose her cheating husband.
The woman was asked by Ritchie, as 'Marina', to go around to their home and have sex with her husband, Benjamin, film the events and send her the recording, the Daily Mail reports.
After the woman had complied she received a message from 'Marina' threatening if she did not continue to have sex with Benjamin and film it, then the initial sex recording would be sent to her family and work colleagues.
