Meet Shimon Hayut, The Tinder Swindler
Shimon Hayut is the subject of the new Netflix’s True-Crime offering “The Tinder Swindler”. The show followed jaw-dropping stories of many women who he had conned while posing as Lev Leviev’s son (Simon Leviev) by legally changing his name. The show tells the story of an Israeli conman who scammed women out of thousands of dollars by claiming himself to be the diamond billionaire’s son.
He had reportedly used his charm to attract women from Norway, Finland, and Denmark by hopping on the dating app Tinder. Shimon convinced these women to hand over a chunk of money so that he could pay his expenses and protect himself from his “enemies”.
Some of his victims featured on the show are Ayleen Charlotte, Cecilie Schrøder Fjellhøy, and Pernilla Sjoholm. With a text message in May 2019, Shimon told ABC’s “Nightline” that he was innocent. He also added that all the accusations against him were merely about “a loan between friends that went south”.
He added, “They used me for my life, they got expensive gifts and everything, in other words, gold diggers. When I ask for help they agreed to help and they know that I have some problems. I didn’t run from no one, it’s all fake news and lies.”
But, in December 2019, police got hold of him and imprisoned him in Israel. He was sought after by Interpol and the Israeli Police. He was sentenced to 15 months in jail. But, he ended up serving only 5 months of the sentence. He was out early because of the pandemic.
He was ordered to pay $43,289 in compensation in December 2019.
The show premiered on 2 February 2022.
