The Tinder Swindler on Netflix: learnings for a better dating UX
If you haven’t seen the movie “The Tinder Swindler” I highly recommend doing so to better grasp the dangers behind online dating. In short, it’s a story featuring the protagonist Simon Leviev (Tinder Swindler) and three women, who got swindled out of massive amounts of money by a crook they met on Tinder.
In this real-life story, you will find everything from mastery of manipulation, control by lying, cheating, recklessly destroying lives, and stealing. In the end — Simon Leviev, real name Shimon Hayut, is released from prison after five months with no debts to be repaid, leaving his victims behind to be judged emotionally and financially up until now.
