On 10th January 2019, telephone number +22962962416 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Chris Benton using email address bentonchris1001@gmail.com as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam.

In Advance Fee Fraud Scams, the scammer will offer you something of high value (a large sum of money or gold for example) and all you have to do is pay a "small" fee.
