Simon Leviev makes a statement about The Tinder Swindler on Netflix
He thanked people for their support
Tinder scammer Simon Leviev released a statement on his Instagram Story commenting on Netflix’s new documentary about him. In the post, he thanked people for their support and said he wanted people to keep an “open mind” about him.
After posting the statement, Leviev removed his Instagram account from privacy. He’s taken it from public to private since the show’s release. The post says he will be sharing his side of the story soon. He said, “Thank you for all your support. I will share my side of the story in the coming days when I have found the best and most respectful way to tell it, both to the parties involved and to myself. Until then, please keep an open mind and heart.
He may have a different idea of what “support” is because right after the show’s release, his Instagram was bombarded with negative comments. He briefly took his Instagram down from privacy, and people posted under his most recent posts “king of the homeless”, “pathetic little cheat” and said he would get his bad karma soon. Other comments added that he was “a horrible human being” while some people were in the comments asking how they could do what he did too. Others added “shame on you”.
The true crime documentary was released earlier this week and tells the jaw-dropping story of how Shimon Hayut impersonated billionaire heir Simon Leviev on Tinder and used him to scam women among hundreds of thousands, all over the world. He seduced women with luxury gifts and a posh lifestyle, all paid for by former wives he had scammed.
Shimon called himself the “Prince of Diamonds” and lured women to open huge lines of credit which he would use to finance his lavish and luxurious lifestyle. He said he needed the money because threats had been made against him and his life depended on it and then he would disappear.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see how he decides to tell the story in the next few days.
