FamousAn arrest warrant has been issued for Simon Leviev, who became famous thanks to the documentary “The Tinder Swindler” on Netflix. The reason for this is the use of a fake driver’s license, the “Daily Mail” wrote.
According to the Daily Mail, Simon Leviev got stuck in his Maserati on a Spanish beach, accompanied by a Russian blonde. When the police came to help, he told him his name was Michael Bilton and showed a false driver’s license. A police officer identified Leviev as “Tinder Swindler,” who tried to extort money from women he met on a dating site.
The Spanish security forces have now submitted a request to the court to reopen an investigation into the Leviev case. Therefore, an arrest warrant was issued against Leviev. It is not clear if it is a global arrest warrant.
Leviev once spent two and a half years in prison in Finland after being convicted of defrauding three women. Then he spent another five months in prison in Israel. Now he is at large again and insists that he is innocent. He said in a recent interview, “The person he’s filming is… he’s crazy.” “I’m not, it’s just a Netflix fantasy. The difference between him and the real Simon is huge. I didn’t ask for money from a woman or anyone else. But then again, I didn’t do anything wrong. I’m the victim here. I’m a Netflix victim. No proof.”
