The Tinder Swindler is Headed to Court to Face the Real Leviev Family


Finally, the Tinder Swindler might get what he deserves.

Next week, Simon Leviev is scheduled to appear in court in Israel as part of a case filed by the actual Leviev family.

It was previously reported that Simon Leviev lived the high life while pretending to be a member of an Israel diamond dynasty, tricking women into taking out loans and giving him thousands.

Chagit Leviev, CEO of Leviev Group USA and the daughter of Israeli diamond tycoon Lev Leviev told PageSix, “We have suffered from the ‘Tinder Swindler’ for years. We knew he was defrauding companies and other women that reached out. We tried so hard to make him stop and fight him and report him to the police.”

“Once I saw the show coming out, I saw it’s game over for him,” Chagit said. “You can no longer pretend who you are. You can no longer manipulate and lie to women. You’re busted. Everyone saw you.” She added, “In his head, he owned this company which is very sick and very crazy.”

The documentary, according to Chagit, “was very shocking to see the emotional aspect of it,” even though “companies were reaching out to asking to get paid and saying they haven’t gotten the wire for private jets and private yachts.”

Simon has requested not to appear in court, but what he expects to plead is unknown.

“He doesn’t want to face the public humiliation he is about to face,” Chagit said. “I have no doubt this is going to go to a good place very soon.”

According to the lawsuit, Simon “impersonated” a member of their family to “defraud, cheat, con, falsify, and hurt women, men, and businesses” worldwide.

The Leviev family has partnered with the three women featured in the documentary, Cecilie Fjellhoy, Pernilla Sjoholm, and Ayleen Charlotte, to produce an inexpensive bracelet Stronger Together, with all proceeds going to the women who were scammed.

According to Page Six, they claim to be $700,000 in debt still.

Chagit asserts that the partnership with the women is “payback” and “karma,” ‘I am sure he is not happy to see this and is eating himself up.”

Fjellhoy wants to remind people that the international con man is dangerous even if the Internet has enjoyed making fun of him.

“We want people to take him seriously and not just laugh at him because he will continue to defraud till the end of time,” Fjellhoy said. “We need to be safe from him, and he needs to be put in jail.”

She explained, “We do laugh about it together; we need to be able.” She said, “You can’t sit for four years and cry.”

Simon tried to cash in on his fame after the documentary was released by selling messages on Cameo.

“It’s a serious matter,” Sjojolm said. “It’s not something to promote on your site. I would recommend anyone who is seriously thinking about working with [Cameo] not to work with that company. I am very, very disappointed in them.”

Simon has served some time in prison for his offenses. He was sentenced to 2.5 years in jail in Finland for scamming three women. He was found guilty of four fraud-related offenses in 2019 and given a 15-month prison term in Israel. Due to his good behavior, he was released after only five months.
