The Tinder Swinder Is Still Active On Instagram And Replying To Fans

The Tinder Swindler's Instagram account continues to appear to be ran by the man himself - Simon Leviev - who looks to still be replying to fans, at the time of writing.

The serial conman, who's real name is Shimon Hayut, features in Netflix's new true crime documentary that dropped yesterday (2 February).

The doc tells the incredible story of the women who were conned by the pretend playboy who ended up scamming them and taking millions of pounds from them.

He has spent years travelling around the world on the run from the authorities, wanted for a series of crimes, including forgery and theft.

Hayut also spent two years in Finnish prison for defrauding several women.

In 2019, he was sentenced to 15 months in prison for theft, fraud, and forgery of documents in Israel - all charges from 2011- and was released after just five months for good behaviour.

In the show itself, it shows that his Instagram account, @simon_leviev_official, appears to still be active and now, there are reports he is still replying to fans.

The Netflix show suggests it does still belong to Hayut and he uses it to splash his cash.

As reported by The Tab, he has already gained 25,000 followers since the show came out and now boasts a grand total of 137,000 Instagram followers.

Right now, the account keeps switching from private to public and it only follows one account.

The account is full of photos flexing his lavish lifestyle - from private jets to designer clothes and expensive cars with more recent pictures being swamped with comments.

Shortly before it went back to private, comments became limited and those about the documentary were reportedly removed.

Well, for those who haven't already watched the new documentary, the official synopsis for The Tinder Swindler reads: "Swipe, swipe, swipe... It’s not easy to find love online, so when Cecilie matches with a handsome billionaire playboy, she can’t quite believe it when he turns out to be the man of her dreams.

"But dreams aren't reality and by the time she discovers this international businessman isn’t who he says he is, it’s too late. He’s taken her for everything.

"Where this fairytale ends, a revenge thriller begins. Cecilie discovers his other targets and once they band together, they're victims no more: THE TINDER SWINDLER meets his match."

The Tinder Swindler is available to watch on Netflix now.
