Alleged Tinder Swindler Simon Leviev Sued by Diamond Family
While she is not listed as a plaintiff in the suit, her relatives Zevulun Leviev, Ayelet Leviev Jacobson, Ruthy Leviev Yelizerov and Hagit Sofiev Leviev are, along with company LLD Diamonds USA, LLC, according to the filing.
The lawsuit filed in Tel Aviv, Israel, states that Simon “has been making false representations as being the son of Lev Leviev and receiving numerous benefits (including material ones),” per the suit. The documents also state that Simon “defrauded, cheated, conned, falsified, and hurt women, men and businesses” around the world while “impersonating” as a member of their family and using their “wealthy” reputation.
The family alleges that Simon took “without permission” a photo of Lev and Ayelet and used Photoshop to edit himself into the family shot. Per the suit, “He presented the ‘fixed’ photo to women and men as proof of being a Leviev family member, thereby making a misrepresentation that he is a part of the family, and did so to generate personal profit and mislead the public.”
