Last Wednesday saw Netflix drop its latest true crime documentary 'The Tinder Swindler'. It currently sits at the No.1 spot for top-watched on the streaming service in Ireland and the UK.
'The Tinder Swindler' relates how Cecilie Fjellhøy, Pernilla Sjöholm and Ayleen Charlotte, among others, were conned out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by a con man posing as the son of a diamond mogul.
Simon Leviev's real name is Shimon Hayut.
The end of the Netflix doc informs the viewer that Shimon Hayut was sentenced to 15 months for crimes committed in Israel.
He was released after 5 months and continues to lead a lavish lifestyle.
While Simon walks free, Cecilie, Pernilla and Ayleen continue to struggle to pay off their debts.
The dating app Tinder - through which Simon allegedly found women before swindling them - has now banned the eponymous 'Tinder Swindler'.
A statement was released reading: "We have conducted internal investigations and can confirm Simon Leviev is no longer active on Tinder under any of his known aliases."
The day before the documentary was released, Tinder published new guidelines for users, titled "Romance Scams: How to Protect Yourself Online."
On Instagram, Simon Leviev announced he intended to tell his side of the story after 'The Tinder Swindler' debuted.
Speaking on his stories, he said: "I will share my side of the story in the next few days when I have sorted out the best and most respectful way to tell it, both to the involved parties and myself."
However, he appeared to delete his social media account subsequently, on which he had 200,000 followers.
Since then another account with his name and photos has appeared online.
However, it is unclear whether he's actually behind it or if it's fan made.
Netflix are also in early talks to turn 'The Tinder Swindler' doc into a feature film, per Variety.
It is now streaming on Netflix. Read our review below.
