Netflix has launched the trailer for it’s new documentary, The Tinder Swindler.
From the team producers of the award nominated ‘Don’t F**ck With Cats‘, Netflix has launched it’s brand new investigative documentary, looking at how one user managed to seduce and swindle young women for millions and is a fugitive from justice in several countries.
With the tagline ‘One swipe could change your life’, Netflix claims that this is the ultimate fairytale gone nightmare. It follows three women who decided it was time for payback.
Including interviews with the Tinder Swindler’s victims, Netflix’s next potentially big docufilm will follow the events surrounding the crime, which culminated in the conviction of Simon Leviev, a dual Russian-Israeli citizen, for theft and fraud following his arrest in June 2019.
The Tinder Swindler is based on the months-long investigation by Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang. Simon Leviev claimed to be the wealthy, jet-setting boss of a diamond firm, but in reality he was a serial catfisher, with his lavish lifestyle funded solely by the women he met on dating apps and then defrauded.
The Tinder Swindler drops on February 2nd. Watch the full trailer below.
