Romance And Money Scams on the Rise

Have you seen Netflix’s new true-crime documentary “The Tinder Swindler”?

The documentary follows the story of three young women who were defrauded by “Simon Leviev,” aka Shimon Hayut, a 31-year-old international fraudster who has been conning people out of money since his late teens.

The documentary traces the fraudulent acts Shimon committed from 2017 to 2019 while falsely claiming that he is the son of Lev Leviev, a billionaire and founder of the diamond manufacturing company, LLD Diamonds. The three women interviewed in the documentary, Cecilie Fjellhøy, Pernilla Sjoholm, and Ayleen Charlotte, all met Simon on Tinder.

While Pernilla struck up a friendship with Simon, Simon dated both Cecilie and Ayleen simultaneously without either woman knowing about the other.
