Following the positive reception of the true-crime documentary The Tinder Swindler on Netflix, TV and film viewers now want to know where Simon Leviev’s former girlfriends are since the filming ended, including Pernilla Sjoholm.
The documentary showcases “a group of women who were the victims of a dating app based swindler join together in an attempt to hunt him down and recover the millions of dollars that were stolen from them”, according to the synopsis.
Simon Leviev is the false identity of Shimon Hayut, born in Bnei Brak, Israel. Hayut conned women into believing he was Leviev, a well-off jetsetter and the son of Israeli businessman, the “King of Diamonds”, Lev Leviev.
He tricked his victims across Europe via the dating app, living an up-market lifestyle from the money he stole from women. The fraudster promised his victims he would repay them for their generosity, but deceived them with fake designer watches, invalid cheques and bank transfers which would bounce back. So, where is Pernilla Sjoholm now?
Where is Pernilla Sjoholm now?
Since the filming of The Tinder Swindler, Pernilla Sjoholm is still believed to be working as a business owner in Stockholm, Sweden.
After having lost out on $45,000 after Simon Leviev defrauded her, Sjoholm has banded together with his two other victims, Ayleen Charlotte and Cecilie Fjellhoy from the show.
The trio have set-up a GoFundMe to get their "lives back" after all they lost as a result of being defrauded.
She also appears to stay in touch with Fjellhoy from the documentary, having shared photos on Instagram together and even going on holiday to Greece together.
