Tinder Swindler has been the talk of the town ever since the documentary dropped earlier this month. The documentary film is testament to the fact that online dating is a dangerous game to play and you might get conned if you’re not careful. Now, the Tinder Swindle is claiming that he is actually not a scammer at all.

In the world of online dating not all that glitters is gold. Notoriously known as The Tinder Swindler, Simon Leviev or Shimon Hayut seduced and swindled young women for millions and is a fugitive from justice in several countries. He is now denying that he wooed women online with bling and then conned them out of millions of dollars.

As per EW, Simon Leviev will be telling his side of the story in an upcoming two-part Inside Edition interview. In the sneak peak of the interview, he continues to claim that “they present it as a documentary but in truth, it’s like a complete[ly] made-up movie.” He insists that “I’m not a Tinder swindler. I was just a single guy that wanted to meet some girls on Tinder. I’m not this monster.

The full interview will feature Leviev presenting more evidence to support this claim. As reported earlier, the Tinder Swindler is also working on a dating show and has hired Gina Rodriguez as his talent manager. As of February 8th Simon is banned from Tinder and other dating apps. Beware of who you swipe right next!
