Simon Leviev Just Gave His First Interview Since Netflix’s ‘Tinder Swindler’ Documentary
Simon Leviev, the subject of The Tinder Swindler, has claimed the Netflix documentary is ‘like a made up movie’ and not based on facts.
The true crime documentary alleges Simon is a conman who used the dating app to entice his victims, before scamming them out of thousands of dollars by claiming he was in trouble.
They claim he posed as a wealthy diamond company heir, who would shower his date with gifts and affection, before asking them to wire him money in emergency scenarios. Despite being arrested and charged with fraud-related crimes, at the end of the film, it was revealed that Simon is now living as a “free man” in Israel, seen continuing his luxury lifestyle with a new girlfriend.

Now, Leviev (born Shimon Hayut) has spoken out about The Tinder Swindler for the first time in an interview with Inside Edition. In it, he claims, “I was just a single guy that wanted to meet some girls on Tinder. I am not a Tinder Swindler.”
In a second clip shared by Entertainment Weekly, he claims Netflix’s doc was presented “as a documentary… in truth, [but] it’s like a complete[ly] made-up movie. I am the biggest gentleman in the world. They call me the Tinder Swindler. I am not a fraud and I am not a fake. People don’t know me so they can’t judge me.”
