“The Tinder Scammer” Simon Leviev could face stiff prison terms after a warrant was issued for his arrest for an incident in 2019, where authorities claim he used a fake driver’s license and crashed his luxury car on a beach in Spain.
Tarifa police say they were able to link Leviev to a 2019 accident thanks to the Netflix doc, according to the Daily Mail. Cops say after cornering his $100,000 Maserati on the beach, Leviev offered a fake ID, with the name michael bilton — one of his presumed pseudonyms.
The police apparently realized the connection by watching the Netflix doc and seeing the name mentioned.
Cops reportedly suspected the permit was not legitimate, but no arrests were made at the time…the rental car was towed away, and he and his unknown date were free to go. He reportedly gave police an address on the Costa del Sol pending an ongoing investigation.
Things apparently stalled after ‘Bilton’ failed to respond to his summons…the case is being reopened after cops now believe Leviev was the man in question.
Simon Leviev tells TMZ … he’s already served time for using a fake passport in 2019 — he thinks he can’t be convicted twice of the same crime.
Leviev was last seen in Tel Aviv in March…as we reported he was recently scammed after paying what he thought was a Meta employee over $6,000 to have his Instagram account verified. It turned out that it was apparently a scam.
