NETFLIX has dropped a trailer for its upcoming true-crime documentary The Tinder Swindler – and singletons might want to think twice about finding love online.
Based on the story of Shimon Hayut, a 28-year-old Israeli conman, who used Tinder to trick women out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The Tinder Swindler was announced earlier this year as part of the streaming platform's true crime content coming to viewers soon.
Netflix says about the documentary: "You’ll never swipe right the same again after watching this new film premiering in February 2022.
"The story that tells the jaw-dropping story of a prolific conman who posed as a billionaire playboy on Tinder – and the women who set out to bring him down."
One of his victims was Cecilie Fjellhoy, a 29-year-old Norwegian masters student living in London.
She had fallen head over heels for the man who reportedly called himself the 'Prince of Diamonds'.
After showering her with grand romantic gestures, Cecilie claims Hayut conned her out of £150,060.
After an operation led jointly between Interpol and the Israeli police, Hayut was arrested in Greece in June 2019 for using a false passport.
Outside of court, he told Norweigan outlet VG: "I will go back to Israel, which is my home country, and I will face what is waiting for me there and that's it, and we will sort everything out.

Hayut now faces extradition to Israel, where he was indicted in 2011 on theft, forgery and fraud charges, but fled the country before standing trial.
The Tinder Swindler will be available to stream on Netflix on Wednesday, February 2.
