Does Crime Pay? – Where is the Tinder Swindler now?

March 2, 2022

We’ve all watched the ‘Con of the century’ documentary on Netflix – Tinder Swindler in which Simon Leviev persuaded women he met on the popular dating app to lend him large sums of money by making equally unbelievable claims: that he was a billionaire whose enemies were trying to track him down and that, for security reasons, he couldn’t use his own credit cards, ultimately defrauding women out of an estimated 10 million in total.

Simon was arrested in 2019 and sentenced to 15 months in prison for fraud by Israeli authorities. Netflix released the documentary in February 2022, which came with backlash from Simon Leviev threatening to sue. Apparently, Leviev is considering a Hollywood career, and is now working with a manager named Gina Rodriguez. 

According to sources, he is interested in creating a dating show where multiple women would compete for his affection unlike the woman affected by his wrong doing, nothing has developed as of yet . Simon gained a considerable amount of fame on Instagram with approximately 100k followers where he flaunts a lavish lifestyle on his private account. He also set up a website to offer business consulting, but he’s subsequently taken it down, going on to starting a real estate career instead and according to his website, he has a net worth of tens of millions of dollars that he allegedly made through real estate. 

Besides charging $20,000 for appearances at nightclubs, Leviev is also featured on the celebrity video greeting service Cameo, which can cost $200 to $1,000. Simon has also confirmed his relationship with gorgeous girlfriend Kate Konlin – an Israeli model despite his dreams to move away to Hollywood. She is seen being spoiled with luxury gifts, and still believes that the charming fraudster is a hotshot property dealer who makes money legitimately.
