We have stated it before, the worst thing for a parent is to be ripped away from their children. The desperation, vulnerability, the sleepless nights are just a portion of their nightmare. Many of the parents turn to the Facebook community in a desperate attempt of seeking an advocate, and advocates are in abundance.
While there are many good people who truly want to assist these victims, there are many who wish to exploit them; it is such an person we wish to expose, Punished for Protecting (P4P,) Francesca Amato-Banfield.
Looking into P4P
Two different platforms did research into her 501(c)4 organization. As an organization, she would had obtained either a tax number or a tax exemption number, both are public information. According to the outside source, neither things were found within IRS records. As we had stated in the last artical, the state of New York also had nothing within their records pertaining to P4P, this is an enormous red flag to anybody seeking an advocate.
With the lack of any relevent, and legal, information to validate this 501(c)4, we must presume it isn’t a legal organization. Once we came to this conclusion, we decided to further investigate. Because of Ms. Amato’s consistant outbursts, looking into her, as a “founding” figure was rather easy.
Amato vs. Meko
In the above image, the true color of Francesca is clearly seen. First, let’s nust point out the idiocy of the original post, prior to her editing it.
She states, “hes a fake fraud…pedophile too.” This was a review left on a page operated by Meko Haze. First, to let’s look at the “fake fraud” aspect. To be a fraud, that would mean that you are not legitimate. It is furthered determined that if you are not legitimate, you are fake. So, in retrospect, she used two negatives. In the English language, wo negatives counter one another. That means what she really stated, had she of known proper English is, ” he’s legitmate” as the double negatives contradict one another.
She goes on to use the pedophile claim. As we have seen in the past, these criminals, who get exposed, absolutely adore that claim. In fact, one of our own had an actual campaign against him deriven from this very accusation. The reason they use the pedophile claim is simple.
The pedophile claim, often times, needs no proof, nobody ever says, “prove it.” As a result of this, the claim is often spread around, doing extensive damage to a person’s reputation. But wait, here’s the good part: it’s also illegal. Libal slander, slander, and defamation of character are three great litigation cases for people like this. Upon being called out on this claim, Amato edited her comment (post below the first one.) Sadly for her, however, Facebook let’s you see the original post.
Free of Charge!
A claim that Francesca has made regards to fees. She claims that she accepts donations. That sounds legit, right? Of course it is! Well…one little problem with this claim. Rather than taking our word for it, look for yourself.
As you can see, this clearly states that all of her classes must be paid upfront, as a fee. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news here but this is not a donation. So, if she is collecting donations, making book sells, why is she charging for a class while denying taking fees outside of donations? The answer to this is obvious: she simply forgot this part of her deception.
The forced payment cannot legally be classified as a donation. Doing this is considered fraud because, as we all know, donations are essentially gifts. If you force people to gift your organization, you are not a non-profit, you are not taking donations, and you shouldn’t try to claim that you are.
In her own mind, she is a revolutionary woman. She is running for governor (no records exist to prove her claim,) she has a magical affadavit that returns all children, though in reality you denounce your citizenship and ultimately lose your case, and she is a top selling book author, even though her “top seller” is valued to be a little over $5.00 on Amazon. All-in-all, she has a great imagination.
We have already exposed one of her “organization’s leaders” here. With the behavior that seems to run rampant within “P4P,” it makes me glad to not be a desperate parent. I do, however, fear for those that she has/will victimize(d). It is, with this in mind, we brought this information to our readers.
