The Tinder Swindler might get what he deserves

Simon Leviev is scheduled to appear in court in Israel as part of a case filed by the actual Leviev family.

It was previously reported that Simon Leviev lived the high life while pretending to be a member of an Israel diamond dynasty, tricking women into taking out loans and giving him thousands.

Chagit Leviev, CEO of Leviev Group USA and the daughter of Israeli diamond tycoon Lev Leviev told PageSix, “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 it’s game over for him,” Chagit said. “You can no longer pretend who you are. You can no longer manipulate and lie to women. You’re busted. Everyone saw you.” She added, “In his head, he owned this company which is very sick and very crazy.”

The documentary, according to Chagit, “was very shocking to see the emotional aspect of it,” even though “companies were reaching out to asking to get paid and saying they haven’t gotten the wire for private jets and private yachts.”
