He conned women into taking out loans and giving him thousands of dollars under the guise that he was in trouble.
According to Page Six, Chagit Leviev, CEO of Leviev Group USA and the daughter of Israeli diamond tycoon Lev Leviev said:
“We have suffered from the ‘Tinder Swindler’ for years. We knew he was defrauding companies and other women that reached out. We tried so hard to make him stop and fight him and report him to the police.”
“Once I saw the show coming out, I saw its game over for him. You can no longer pretend who you are, you can no longer manipulate and lie to women. You’re busted. Everyone saw you. In his head, he owned this company which is very sick and very crazy.”
Warrant of arrest
On Monday, April 25, 2022, Legit.ng reported that a warrant of arrest had been issued for Simon after he allegedly presented a fake driver's license to police while he was in Spain.
According to Daily Mail, Simon used a fake driver's licence in 2019 during an incident where he got his Maserati car stuck on a beach in Spain.
The suit alleges that Simon “defrauded, cheated, conned, falsified, and hurt women, men and businesses” around the world while “impersonating” a member of their family.
Not Tinder Swindler
The infamous Tinder Swindler claims that he is not deserving of this international title and plans to seek out legal help to help him discredit the Netflix documentary.
The dating app scammer is adamant that Netflix has gotten the story all wrong in their documentary.
"I am not the 'Tinder Swindler. I'm not a fraud and I'm not a fake. People don't know me - so they cannot judge me. I was just a single guy that wanted to meet some girls on Tinder. I’m not this monster," he said.
