Ex-Wrestling Trainer’s Conviction Upheld for Intercourse Crimes Involving 9 Youngsters

The Tinder Swindler conman whose scams are the focus of an explosive new Netflix documentary has deleted the Instagram account where he flaunted photos of his lavish lifestyle – just two days after the streaming site premiered its new tell-all. 
Throughout 2018 and 2019, Shimon Hayut, 31, tricked multiple single women – who he met through the dating app Tinder – into giving him hundreds of thousands of dollars while pretending to be a billionaire named Simon Leviev. 
Now, Netflix has dropped a new documentary about his ploys – sparking huge media coverage and increased backlash against Shimon – who appears to have become somewhat publicity shy in the light of the renewed scrutiny.
So much so that the convicted conman chose to delete his social media account, which he had been regularly updating with snippets from his high-flying lifestyle, from photos of himself posing on private jets to videos of himself behind the wheel of luxury cars.

Shimon – who was ultimately arrested and charged with fraud, theft, and forgery – spent five months in prison before he was released on ‘good behavior’ in May 2020.

Netflix dropped a brand new documentary about his ploys on February 2 – sparking immense backlash against Shimon

However, soon after getting out of prison, he began sharing photos of his himself enjoying a life of luxury to Instagram, and continued to flaunt his glamorous activities up until the entire account was removed on Friday. 
Just one month after he was released, he posted a snap of himself on a boat while he held a cigar and was surrounded by alcohol.
‘Let the summer begin,’ he captioned it. 
Back in November, the conman posted numerous videos of himself flying in a private plane.
And one week before that, he shared a clip of himself driving in his bright red convertible, while grinning at the camera and giving a thumbs up. 
Other posts over the last year showed him partying on a yacht, eating in expensive restaurants, staying in five-star hotels, taking numerous helicopter rides, skydiving, and vacationing all over the world. 
He addressed the Netflix doc on Friday, writing on his Instagram Story, ‘Thank you for all your support.

‘I will share my side of the story in the next few days when I have sorted out the best and most respectful way to tell it, both to the involved parties and myself. Until then, please keep an open mind and heart.’
However, hours later, the account disappeared completely.
In the Netflix documentary, which came out on February 2, three of his victims – Cecilie Fjellhøy, Pernilla Sjöholm, and Ayleen Charlotte – spoke out about how Shimon convinced them to hand over hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Shimon – who stole an estimated $10 million over the years, according to People Magazine – told them he was the son of Israeli diamond merchant Lev Leviev.
The Times of Isreal reported that although Lev and his diamond business LLD Diamonds is real, he has no relation to Shimon and has ‘filed a complaint against him with police for falsely presenting himself as his son.’ 
Norwegian graduate student Cecilie, who was 29 when she dated Shimon, claimed she gave Shimon more than $270,000 over the course of their relationship, after they connected via Tinder in January 2018.

He addressed the Netflix doc on Friday via his Instagram Story, claiming that he would ‘share his side of the story’ soon. However, hours later, the account disappeared completely

Shimon was eventually arrested – after he was caught with a fake passport – and was convicted in December 2019.
He was released the following May, after serving five months of his 15-month sentence.
He was also ordered to pay his victims $43,289, and to pay a fine of $5,771 under the terms of a plea deal. 
Shimon had previously served two years in a Finnish prison back in 2015, after being charged for defrauding three different women.
He was also reportedly forced to flee his home country of Israel in 2011 to avoid fraud-related offenses that he had committed in his early 20s.
