The Tinder Swindler: Who Is Simon Leview? Where Is He Now?

The new Netflix documentary “The Tinder Swindler” shocks viewers. Simon used nasty tricks to steal millions. The documentary premiered on Netflix on February 2, 2022, and has turned the streaming service upside down ever since. The true crime documentary is directed by Felicity Morris and is based on the imminent story of Simon Leview. But where is the Netflix scammer now and are there new victims?


Who Is The Tinder Swindler’s Simon?

“Modern love is a dangerous game”. This is how Netflix writes about the new documentary hit “The Tinder Swindler”. And the almost two-hour-long film shows how true that became for the victims of fraudster Simon Leview.

After all, according to the Netflix documentary, the 31-year-old ripped off and cheated on women around the world, using their money to fly in private jets, drive supercars and live a life of luxury.

Simon Leviev’s real name is Shimon Hayut and he called himself the “Prince Of Diamonds”. But Simon probably has nothing of a prince charming.

Because the clever swindler is said to have easily conquered the hearts of women, invited them to exclusive dates and wrapped the ladies around his finger with charm and showmanship. The expensive lifestyle was supposedly paid for with money from other women. Cars, yachts, airplanes, and much (pretentious) more. Funded by fraud?


Simon Stole Millions

The Prince of Diamonds met the women on the Internet via Tinder. And after a few meetings, he suddenly asked the victims for urgent help, according to their statements, enemies had frozen his accounts or wild stories about life and death made the women lend Simon money. But nothing was borrowed here, Simon obviously didn’t pay anything back! He is said to have gotten 10 million dollars in this way.  

Where Is Simon Now?

Simon was revealed – was a wanted man in Israel, Sweden, England, Germany, Denmark and Norway. He was caught in July 2019 and sentenced to 15 months in prison in December 2019. However, after 5 months he was released for good behavior. Simon is currently a free man and is said to be in Israel.

Simon Has A New Girlfriend

His Instagram profile is still online, albeit (sometimes) private. He has over 200,000 followers. The photos continue to show a life of luxury as the victims in the Netflix documentary pay off debts they are said to have owed to Simon. 

The last feed entry on Simon’s Instagram profile is from October 31, 2021, with the caption: “No matter what others think of you always sing your own song.” That should probably actually mean: “Spend your own money” right? 


At the end of “The Tinder Swindler,” it is also revealed that Simon has a new girlfriend. An Israeli model. Who is the girl and can she trust Simon?

Simon only follows one person on Instagram (as of February 4th, 2022): Model Kate Conlin.  The beauty is a model at world-renowned agency IMG Models and is said to have posed for Vogue. 

In the latest Instagram stories, the “businessman” appears with Kate, chauffeured in a Rolls Royce. “Have a great night folks,” he says. In another story, he writes: “Thank you all for the support. I will reveal my side of the story in the next few days. I need time to find a way to tell it in a respectful way – out of respect for others and myself. Until then: don’t judge.” 

According to Tinder’s statements to the British press, Simon is no longer active on Tinder.
