Kelechi Ehenulo (Confessions From A Geek Mind, Film Stories, VultureHound Magazine) and Steven Geekface (So Geeked About Movies) join Flixwatcher remotely to review The Tindler Swinder.
The Tinder Swindler is a 2022 Netflix true-crime documentary that tells the story of the Israeli conman Simon Leviev who used the dating app Tinder to emotionally manipulate a number of women into funding his lavish lifestyle.
Between 2017 and 2019 he allegedly conned an estimated $10 million from victims across Europe. He presented himself as the son of Russian-Israeli diamond mogul Lev Leviev – by photoshopping himself into family photos. Using Tinder he would meet women in hotels and show them private jets (which were funded by other women) and once he had established a relationship begin asking them for money to protect him from his “enemies”.
Some of the moments in The Tinder Swindler are genuinely draw-dropping – the reveal that one of his victims took out close to $250,000 in loans is equally shocking as it is devastating. It has to be seen to be believed and this was reflected in strong scores for recommendability but lower scores for repeat viewing gives an overall rating of 3.49.
