Netflix’s new documentary “The Tinder Swindler” has gone viral in just a month. True, fame came not to the authors of the project, but to the main character – a seductive scammer from a dating application. Simon Leviev, who brutally deceived many girls all over Europe, is still at large and does not even try to hide.
Simon Leviev, nee Shimon Khayut, is now trying to make even more money from his unexpected popularity. He actively gives interviews, plans to launch his own reality show, write a book, record a podcast. And even this scammer is not going to stop. Not so long ago, Leviev began to record video greetings on a special service. In three days, he managed to earn about 30 thousand dollars on this.
Simon Leviev was born in Israel, but at the age of 15 he moved to New York with family friends. By the way, even then he was engaged in petty fraud. He had more than one fake passport, Shimon Hayut changed his name and surname several times. He almost always managed to evade the law. He borrowed the surname Leviev from the famous billionaire, diamond tycoon Lev Leviev. Now his official accounts on the dating app Tinder and Instagram are blocked.
