French Montana has poked fun at “The Tinder Swindler” after realising they’ve met before.

Montana, born Karim Kharbouch, has recently revealed to his Instagram followers that he has previously encountered Simon Leviev.

The Unforgettable rapper, 37, took to his Instagram story to document the moment that they met, posting a photo of him and Leviev, or rather Shimon Yehuda Hayut, together. 

He initially posted the picture with the caption: “I can’t believe I met the swindler,” but later re-posted the same picture with a more appropriate choice of words. 

His revised description read: "Hey we just left the hospital. French Montana is fine again, we are fine again, but our enemies are after us. Please send 50k fast. Please."

The Grammy nominee added a slew of laughing emojis to his picture, mocking the fraudster who conned women into believing he was the son of Israeli businessman Lev Leviev and stealing large amounts of money from them. 

He tricked his victims across Europe via the dating app, living an up-market lifestyle from the money he stole from them. 

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.

Hayut was then wanted by the authorities in Israel, Sweden, England, Germany, Denmark and Norway, but not for theft. 

It was eventually a fake passport which had him extradited to Israel in July 2019, and he was finally convicted of theft, fraud and forgery.
