The serial fraudster did a two year stint in a Finnish prison for swindling three women in 2015. When he was sent back to Israel in 2017 to face charges for his previous offences, Hayut fled the country again with a new assumed identity.
By the time he met Cecilie Fjellhoy in January 2018, Hayut was posing as ‘Simon Leviev,’ Pernilla Sjoholm은 자신의 이야기를 공유하여 엄청난 지원을 받은 후 £600,000를 모금하기 위해 GoFundMe 프로필을 설정했습니다., Pernilla Sjoholm은 자신의 이야기를 공유하여 엄청난 지원을 받은 후 £600,000를 모금하기 위해 GoFundMe 프로필을 설정했습니다.. He claimed to be a high-powered CEO for LDD Diamonds who constantly traveled for work.
‘He tells me that his dad is the ‘King of Diamonds,’ and that means I’m the prince,’ one of his victims, Cecilie Fjellhoy, told the Netflix documentary.
To make his claims more believable, Hayut legally changed his last name to Leviev and hired a team of fake assistants, business partners and a bodyguard to make his story more credible.

The fraudster first invited Fjellhoy to meet for coffee at the Four Seasons in London after the pair matched on Tinder.
Upon finishing their drink, he asked the blonde graduate student if she wanted to join him on his private jet for a business trip to Bulgaria, leaving that afternoon.
Fjellhoy told Norwegian news site Verdens Gang that she felt reassured by his ‘team’ of employees that were joining them.
What proceeded next was a whirlwind long distance romance that involved daily love notes over text, videos and voice messages exchanged on Whatsapp.
‘This was the first time where I felt like: ‘Oh my god I really like him. And it seems that he really likes me back as well,” Fjellhoy said to Nightline on ABC in 2019.

Among the excessive love overtures, Hayut sent clips of himself on private jets, driving Ferraris and closeups of his luxury watches.
‘I never felt this way, if you had told me I wouldn’t even imagine it or believe it,’ he said in a voice note that Fjellhoy shared with Verdens Gang.
‘I love you my future wife,’ he said in another.
From early on, Hayut hinted at the inherent danger in being involved in the diamond industry, and claimed that he couldn’t visit Fjellhoy in London because of threats he was receiving from enigmatic enemies.
He even went as far as sending photos of himself and his bodyguard in the hospital, after alleging they were ‘attacked.’

Fjellhoy fell for it, 훅, 라인과 싱커. Four weeks into their courtship, the conman asked her to take out a massive line of credit for him, explaining that it was a precautionary security measure to avoid leaving a paper trail in his name.
As per his instructions, she filled out an application for an American Express Platinum Card and he told her to file an income of $200,000, assuring her that nobody would check it.
‘It felt good to be able to give it to him and say, ‘Here’s my credit card. I managed it,’ said Fjellhoy to the Norwegian news outlet.
The fraudster spent the money on plane tickets, hotels and dinners that were booked under her name to throw off suspicious ‘enemies’.

‘One of the main reasons why he needed it was protection…he needed my name as a cover, 그는 말했다,’ Fjellhoy told Nightline in 2019. ‘I know it sounds crazy…[그러나] why would he have this giant guy with him if he didn’t need the protection?,’ 그녀가 말했다, apparently referring to a bodyguard.
Funding the jetset lifestyle for Hayut and his ‘team’ added up fast. In just 54 일, the handsome Israeli imposter spent two million Norwegian krone ($224,220) on Louboutins in Bangkok, on Gucci in Barcelona, at the Ritz Carlton in Berlin and the Conservatory in Amsterdam.
With her Amex maxed out, Fjellhoy opened ten more lines of credit to continue paying for her crook-boyfriend. She took out a loan to pay off her credit cards, but the money Hayut promised to repay wasn’t coming in.
‘My angel My love I just talked to the bank and they told me that the [transfer] of Amex will be there on Monday thousand percent,’ read one text message Hayut sent her. He also added a bank letter from TD Bank attesting to a bank transfer in the amount of $500,000 to her account, but that document was forged.
After three months, the relationship was all but over. Fjellhoy said the moment she finally realized Hayut had stolen her money was ‘such a shock’.
‘I almost wanted to throw up, it was the first time in my life that I had gotten such a shock that my body physically was telling me that, ‘OK your life is ruined,’ everything came crashing down around me,’ she told Nightline on ABC.

They first met on Tinder in March 2018. ‘He was smart and funny and very impulsive’ Pernilla said in the documentary.
‘This may sound strange,’ Sjoholm told Verdens Gang, ‘But he’s very thoughtful.’
It wasn’t until eight months into their relationship that Hyut asked to borrow $45,000. He repaid her with valuable watch that she later discovered was fake.
Shortly after loaning him the money, Pernilla discovered that she had been swindled when an investigative reporter for Verdens Gang, contacted her to explain that they were researching the case of a serial fraudster. 함께, they set up a sting operation to stop Shimon Hayut from his continuing his scam.
‘He’s not your everyday swindler,’ 그녀는 말한다. ‘This man is in a league of his own.’
When she finally confronted the man who she once called a ‘friend,’ he responded with little remorse: ‘Pernilla if you double cross me, I can tell you right now that you will pay for it for the rest of your life.’
Via text message in May 2019, Shimon Hayut told ABC’s Nightline that he was innocent and that the accusations against him were merely about ‘a loan between friends that went south.’ 그는 덧붙였다: ‘They used me for my life they got expensive gifts and everything, in other words gold diggers.’
The fake billionaire fugitive was finally captured in June 2019 during a joint operation between Interpol and Israeli Police.
Shimon Hayut was sentenced to 15 months in prison and ordered to pay his victims $43,289 in compensation in December 2019, but was released after only serving five months.
‘How can you give trust to a man like that, who escaped from Israel twice?’ responded Pernilla Sjoholm to the news. ‘A man that deceived and swindled women in Europe for hundreds of thousands of euros. 정의는 어디에?’ 그녀가 말했다.
