The Tinder Swindler Simon Leviev is racking up the cash since being exposed for scamming a few women through online dating profiles. The lothario’s latest endeavor has him collecting $20k per club appearance. Meanwhile, his victims are still trying to pay back the loans they took out for someone they thought was their boyfriend.
Simon Leviev Is Charging $20,000 Per Appearance
After the success of the Netflix documentary Tinder Swindler featuring Leviev, he has been on a rollercoaster of only highs. TMZ is reporting that he has offers from clubs in Philadelphia, Boston, and a few other states.
He is also fielding offers from Germany and Mexico. In true Simon-style, along with his $20k request, he is also demanding bottle service, a private jet, accommodations at a 5-star hotel, a black SUV to be chauffeured around in, and of course 2 full-time security guards because his “enemies” are after him always.
Simon Leviev Loves The Attention… Of Course
The 31-year-old is said to be basking in the glow of the attention he is receiving. He was spotted shopping around for Ferraris in Tel Aviv and he is looking for an agent. Allegedly, Gina Rodriguez, who has clients like Mama June and is responsible for brokering TV show and appearance deals for June, and her family is a front runner.
It was also revealed a few weeks back that the alleged scammer was in talks to have his own dating show and a podcast. The swindler in the meantime has been making bank on Cameo charging $200 for individuals and $1000 for business groups.
He even has great reviews from very satisfied customers. One purchaser stated that Leviev “knocked it out of the park” that review is backed up by his 4.9 rating on the platform.
Simon Leviev Is The ‘Tinder Swindler’
In case you missed it, Leviev is accused of scamming a handful of women through the Tinder app and has officially been banned from that app and several others. Two and a half of his victims appeared in the doc. We only say half because one girl scammed him by stealing his very expensive designer clothes and is still selling them to this day online. Slowly but steadily making back some of the money he allegedly scammed from her.
Another victim Pernilla Sjöholm spoke with PageSix and shared her traumatic experience dealing with Leviev, his bodyguard, and all the lies. “He just genuinely doesn’t care about anyone besides himself,” she said. Describing him as having “a disorder” and noting that “he doesn’t feel empathy.”
The doc showed how Leviev encouraged women he was dating from Tinder to take out loans and withdraw money at any means necessary to help him “escape” his “enemies”. They shared that they felt forced to help because they feared for his life and the life of his child.
‘Tinder Swindler’ Went To Jail
Thankfully in 2019, Leviev was arrested for his horrible acts just not the ones he committed against these women. He was arrested for using a forged passport and sentenced to 16 months in jail in Israel for not only the passport fraud but previous undisclosed fraud charges as well.
He served five months and came out allegedly still scamming. Of course, Leviev has denied that he conned anyone. As for his victims, Sjöholm states he truly is not interested in making things right with her or other victims. In fact, he is using this media storm to talk about himself.
“You can hear him talk even now in the interview. ‘This has been very hard for me’ — it’s just ‘me, me, me.’”
