The Tinder Swindler
The Tinder Swindler is a new Netflix documentary about the conman Shimon Hayut, who was jailed in 2019 for scamming his dates out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by posing as a rich playboy womaniser on the dating app Tinder. Cecilie Fjellhoy met Shimon Hayut on the dating service and sought revenge after being tricked by him. Cecilie connects with his other victims and when they band together to bring his operation down, they are no longer victims but integral to his arrest.
Shimon Hayut, an Israeli man, travelled around Europe posing as the son of Russian-Israeli diamond magnate Lev Leviev. He posed as Simon Leviev on the dating app Tinder and duped women into lending him money, which he never repaid. He would entice women with extravagant gifts and fly them to dinners on private planes with money he had stolen from other women he had defrauded. Later, he would pretend that he was being pursued by his "enemies," sending the same messages and photographs to each woman, claiming that he had been attacked with a knife and that his bodyguard had protected him but was injured.
He then urged his victims to support him with money after an alleged breach of 'security,' which reportedly prevented him from using his credit cards and bank accounts. The women in which he dated would frequently take out bank loans and new credit cards to support him. He'd then use their money to entice new victims and profit from each deception. He would pretend to reimburse his victims by sending forged documents with fake bank transfers on them before completely cutting off communication with them.
