THE “Tinder Swindler” is reportedly charging $20,000 for nightclub appearances as he cashes in on his Netflix notoriety.
Simon Leviev, whose real name is Shimon Hayut, is already fielding business opportunities after becoming famous for allegedly conning women out of large sums of money.

The Israeli conman has been receiving offers from nightclubs in Philadelphia, Boston, Germany and Mexico, according to TMZ.
Leviev’s team has allegedly responded to the offers with a long list of demands, including the $20,000 fee.
Additionally, he demanded bottle service, a private jet, a suite at a five-star hotel, a black SUV car service, and two full-time bodyguards.
As seen in the Netflix documentary, Leviev posed as the son of a diamond billionaire as part of a years-long con.
He would allegedly use the money he got from some women to woo more with private-jet rides, luxury hotel stays, and other expensive presents.
After gaining their trust, he would ask them for large sums with the promise of paying them back, various women claimed.
When the Netflix show premiered last week, he hit back with claims that the women were all colluding to wreck his life.
Over the years, Leviev has been in and out of jail – but never for very long.
He was “charged in Israel with theft, forgery and fraud in 2011 for cashing stolen checks, but fled before sentencing. He was convicted in Finland for defrauding women and was returned to Israel in 2017, but fled the country again,” The Times of Israel reported.
Two years later, in 2019, he was imprisoned in Israel after pleading guilty to fraud charges.
He was released after serving five months of a 15-month sentence, reportedly due to a program meant to reduce the prison population because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Now Leviev is living the high life and even runs seminars for wannabe entrepreneurs costing £250 a head.
The 31-year-old, who has denied being a fraudster, is now based in Tel Aviv while flitting around the world in private jets and driving supercars, and has been enjoying dates with Vogue model Kate Konlin.
Ukraine-born Konlin, linked to him since July, has previously spoken out in his defense, insisting he was a successful property dealer.
