If you love the journey of scammers, fraudsters, or conmen, you are not alone. We also love these kinds of shows. Netflix has a bunch of documentaries inspired by the true-crime story of conmen. Soon after The Tinder Swindler premiered on Netflix, it quickly make its way into the platform’s “Trending Now” section. Directed by Felicity Morris, the documentary reveals the story of how Shimon Hayut aka Simon Leviev exploited several young women.

Swindling can also give you nausea just like your first love if thousands of dollars of your money is at stake. So, in the light of The Tinder Swindler release, many of our favorite Netflix stars have come forward to share their story. “What’s the wildest thing you’ve ever done for love?”
Harry Jowsey from Too Hot to Handle season 1, shared that only after knowing this person, they flew to Vegas to get married. But, fortunately, the chapel was closed. He said, “I tried to spend $50,000 to keep it open.”

Another one of them said that their first date they ended up staying at the man’s family home for five days. On their second date, they went to Amalfi Coast, where he announced that he was broke and she had to pay for everything.
Some of them moved to a new city for a guy without even knowing him and another one bought a $40 burner phone just to text her potential lover. You can hear more such crazy stories on in the video above.
What’s The Tinder Swindler all about?
Only three of Simon’s victims have come together in front of the camera to take him down in the documentary. Pernilla Sjöholm and Cecilie Fjellhø, two of his victims, share how he sweeps young women by buying them expensive gifts, flying them in his private jets, and taking them to expensive restaurants. He even acts as the son of a billionaire founder of jewel supplier LLD Diamonds, Lev Leviev.
Out of a sudden, in the middle of the night, he claimed that his life was in danger and he needed their credit cards so that his enemies can’t trace him. Sjöholm alone has given him $40,000 to Simon, and Fjellhøy has given him $200,000. Simon has swindled more than $10,000 dollars from several victims all over the globe, as per the documentary.
