Unless you have been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, you will have at least heard of The Tinder Swindler. Watch the trailer below:
The Netflix doc, which was made by the creators of Don't F**k With Cats, has proven to be a smash hit.
It centres on several women who matched with the playboy billionaire Simon Leviev on the dating app, only to find out all too late that he wasn't who he said he was.
Rather than being the love of their lives, he was a skilled conman, who took them for everything they had, stealing hundreds of thousands of pounds from them.
One of the women unlucky enough to have met Leviev, real name Shimon Hayut, was Ayleen Charlotte, who lent him £103,000 ($140,000) during their 14-month relationship.
But if her latest post to social media is anything to go by, the relationship didn't leave her completely empty-handed.
Ayleen at least got to keep his sunglasses.
In the photo posted to her Instagram account, she can be seen wearing a pair of specs that once belonged to Leviev.
Ayleen posted the pic with the caption: "Yes these are his glasses."
Since the documentary landed on the streaming site, she has become something of a hero, with viewers praising her for turning the tables on the crook and going after him.
After finding out about Leviev's previous convictions and the millions he had stolen, Ayleen contacted the police but decided that in the meantime she would get her own money back.
Noticing that she was in a 'powerful position', Ayleen told Leviev she was on his side but instead of following through with his requests to sell her car and house to give him money, she suggested that he let her sell his designer clothes.
Working in the luxury fashion industry, Leviev trusted her and passed on his items for her to sell which she put on eBay. They included designer garments from Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana and Louis Vuitton.
While Ayleen pulled in thousands, her 'boyfriend' was getting increasingly irate and leaving her voice notes and texts including threats against her and her family.
Taking to social media, viewers have been obsessing over Ayleen and her actions which bought down Leviev. One wrote: "Ayleen on the Tinder Swindler is a certified bad b****."
Another added: "Ayleen from Tinder Swindler is a whole VIBE. She was like 'okay you’re gonna cheat on me and take my money? Imma give it back to you 10 fold'."
A third commented: "Ayleen from Netflix’s Tinder Swindler pulled that Uno Reverse card."
Hayut who was eventually caught with a fake passport in Greece in 2019.
He was extradited to Israel and sentenced to 15 months in prison for theft, fraud, and forgery of documents but got out after five months on good behaviour.
The Tinder Swindler is available to watch on Netflix now.
