Tinder Swindler Con Man Banned From Dating App

Tinder swiped left Shimon Hayout.

The dating app officially banned Hayut, who also used the name Simon Leviev while connecting with potential dates, to use their app after the Netflix documentary The Tinder scammer detailed his alleged scams. On Monday, Feb. 5, a Tinder spokesperson told E! News, “We have conducted internal investigations and can confirm that Simon Leviev is no longer active on Tinder under any of his known handles.”

The Netflix documentary, released on February 2, featured interviews with several women who claimed to have been scammed out of hundreds of thousands [one lost at least $250,000]dollars per Hayut. Claiming he was the son of an Israeli diamond tycoon Levi Leviev, from Bnei Brak, Israel, is said to lure women with luxurious first dates. According to Cecilie Schrøder Fjellhoythat meant taking her to Bulgaria in a private jet.

But over time, Hayut began to open up on his dates about the threats he faced from so-called enemies of the diamond industry. Eventually he said he feared for his life and allegedly asked the women to open a credit card in their name and give it to him as he could not use his own card for security.
