If you haven’t watched The Tinder Swindler on Netflix, I highly recommend it. The unbelievable story about how one man allegedly conned dates out of an estimated $10 million. But the true amount, along with the number of alleged victims, is still unknown. Simon Leviev, the man behind the nickname, pretended that he was a super wealthy Israeli diamond heir. He got women on the hook by flying them around on private jets and taking them out to expensive restaurants. He certainly seemed wealthy. But as the women explained, things started to get a little weird. Simon would then make claims that his “enemies” were after him and therefore, he didn’t have access to his wealth. That’s when he started asking for money.
The women in the documentary are still on the hook for the credits cards they ran up and the money they allegedly loaned him. Unrelated fraud charges landed Simon in an Israeli jail for 5 months back in 2019. But when it comes to his most recent allegations of swindling, he has yet to be charged with anything. He has been banned from multiple dating sites but Simon has already moved on to his next grift. He got himself an agent and is trying to start a podcast and even a dating show, where women would “compete for his love.” Until that pans out (here’s hoping it doesn’t), he’s got to find some way to make some quick cash.

As reported by TMZ, he’s doing just that by joining Cameo. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Cameo is a site where all kinds of different levels of celebrities can send you or someone of your choice a personalized video. For a cost, of course. Simon’s account charges $200 for a personal message and $1,600 for business inquiries. He allegedly made $30k in his first 3 days, although that report is unconfirmed.
Apparently, people have requested birthday shout outs, pep talks, anniversary videos and more. Simon’s profile reads, “Excited to be on Cameo to wish the special person in your life whatever you need!” In a sample video featured on his page, he jokes that his enemies are after him. And he already has 433 fans and 36 reviews – all 5 star. But like his other ventures, we are left to wonder how long it could possibly continue.
