Tinder Swindler’s Simon Leviev is charging $20k to appear at nightclubs

By now everyone has seen The Tinder Swindler, right? I went into it knowing the broad strokes, but was shocked by the specifics of how elaborate Simon Leviev’s con was and the fact that the women were taking out loans and spending money they didn’t even have. Of all the scammers that have gotten media attention recently, I think this dude is the most reprehensible. In addition to bankrupting and betraying normal people with normal means — as opposed to mostly banks and businesses à la Anna Delvey — he completely preyed on the women’s feelings and emotionally abused them.

However, we live in a world where nothing is so bad that it can’t be monetized. Apparently Simon has received offers to make paid club appearances and he’s asking for $20,000 a pop and then some.

Simon Leviev is an expensive habit — as several European women will attest — and now he’s got nightclubs lining up to hand him up to $20K just to pop bottles and party…

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … Simon has several offers from clubs in Philly, Boston, Germany and Mexico, and he’s at least interested, because his team responded with a laundry list of demands.

We’re told he’s asking for the $20,000 payday, plus bottle service … but it doesn’t stop there. Leviev’s also requesting a private jet, suite at a 5-star hotel, black SUV car service and 2 full-time security guards.

Basically, he wants the same lifestyle his alleged victims say he pretended to have while he duped them into handing over millions of dollars. As we reported, Simon was recently shopping for Ferraris … so, he’s for sure, leaning into the image he portrayed in ‘Swindler.’

Wow, I wonder what it’s like to be completely shameless. It’s kind of like these clubs are providing a hunting ground for him to find his next victim. It would be great if the next woman that gets involved with him does so for the notoriety and then out-scams the scammer. I doubt that will happen though. More likely this poser will continue to lure victims with the lifestyle that these clubs and Internet infamy are now helping him attain.

Speaking of appalling, I was also shocked that he’s not even cute! Round hipster glasses and prepubescent struggle facial hair — are the enemies he kept talking about flattering glasses and a razor? Ew, swipe left. It’s clear his allure was mostly the illusion of wealth, but in his pictures he definitely gave off a very slimy vibe.

    I hope there is no market for this.

  2. hoopjumper says:

    Please let this be a ploy to lure him out of Israel to countries where he could face additional criminal charges. Please.

  3. Spaniard says:

    What made him cute or attractive to all these girls was the fortune and the lavish lifestyle he was selling and that’s it. No one deserves to be scammed and I am not blaming his victims but, would they have tried to match with him if he had a profile with a 9 to 5 job with a regular salary? Money-seekers are easier to prey.

    He is not cute at all.

    What also struck me in the documentary is the sad place his mother lives in. Like this mofo didn’t even use one cent to upgrade his own mother and lives his empty af life to the fullest instead. Uselessness in human form.

      Did they not show him at the end of the documentary how he was surprising his mom with her own luxury car after getting out of jail. She has no shame either.

    • Shanaynay says:

      I don’t find him cute at all either. He looks like a slime ball. If I saw him coming towards my way down the street I would cross the street for fear the he would steal my purse.

  5. Swack says:

    Why is he given a platform for his antics? They need to stop reporting on him.

    • Shanaynay says:

      Agreed. It seems as if they’re promoting him. It’s creeping to think that anybody would be dumb enough to pay that kind of money to have this POS appear at their nightclub. No….. he needs to go away for a long time. Like being locked up in jail for many years to come. How stupid does his GF have to be? WTF is wrong with her? Why would she be with someone like him? Is she in on it all?

    He is so vile, I hope karma bites him in the butt.

  7. Lizzie Bathory says:

    From the documentary, it seemed like he is very superficially charming in person, good at love-bombing & had a pretty decent grift going. That’s a powerful combination. My guess is he’s putting out this story as part of a new grift to capitalize on his relative fame. The funny thing is that if he keeps up his scams in multiple jurisdictions as a semi-famous person, he’s bound to wind up in real legal trouble.

    Gross and grimy.

  9. Elise says:

    This starts with his parents. I listened to the podcast and his dad tried to help him scam thousands from a Rabbi in New York.

  10. KBeth says:

    He nasty.

  11. Doodle says:

    When his ex was selling his clothes I couldn’t get over them. I know this is materialistic and a matter of taste, but I was like… if my date showed up wearing that I’d cut and run. That’s a red flag in and of itself.

  12. RoSco says:

    Are you new here?!? I love the last paragraph (but only because he’s an objectively terrible person). Yay, new writer!!! 🙂

  13. Digital Unicorn says:

    I haven’t seen the show and have no intention of – the sleaziness literally just rolls of him.

    Justice and karma need to come for him.

    Balding Scammer Still Balding And Scamming

  15. JRT says:

    Every woman should boycott these bars that hire Simon Lievev for appearances and than boycott these establishments that promote this toxic behavior.

  16. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Where’s the female snipers?

  17. MY3CENTS says:

    Would this club happen to be the Anna Delvy Foundation ?

  18. elizabeth says:

    A friend’s friend just saw him in a club in Los Angeles. She texted as were Netflix Party watching the movie. He’s still going…
