In the Netflix documentary, we closely saw how Simon Leviev operated as a conman. He would find women on Tinder, make them believe he is a rich billionaire, and then create a fake scenario where his “enemies” were after him. Only to steal money from these women. We saw in The Tinder Swindler how he did all that with Charlotte, Sjöholm, and Fjellhoy while creating intriguing stories that further enhance his plot.

During the episode, Charlotte also revealed a photo that Leviev sent to her. In the picture, his shirt has blood on it, and he said that people were after his life. Charlotte feared for both of their lives and that was when he took advantage of her and stole all her life’s savings.

Even though the credit card companies eventually let go of all the charges, the entire thing bugged Rachel for many years. She even wrote a book to document everything that she went through because of Anna. The book is titled, “My Friend Anna: The True Story of the Fake Heiress Who Conned Me and Half of New York City”. 

In the Netflix Original, Inventing Anna, Julia Garner has portrayed the role of Anna Delvey and Katie Lowes has played the role of Rachel Williams.
