The Tinder Swindler’s Simon Heyada Hayut has bashed his victims’ GoFundMe page which they set up to try and recoup some of the money he ‘conned them out of’. 

Cecilie Fjellhøy, Ayleen Koeleman, and Pernilla Sjoholm created the fundraiser after Leviev ‘tricked’ them into lending him thousands of pounds by convincing them he was the son of a billionaire.

Sharing a link to it on Instagram, he wrote: “Go ahead and help real associations. Not these manipulators. This is what is called MARKETING.”

The trio is believed to have raised almost £85,000 to date.

The page’s bio reads: “You’re probably here because you’ve heard about our story, and we appreciate you taking the time to search and find this page.

“After careful consideration, and many chats, we have decided to start this GoFundMe fundraiser.

“So many people reached out to us asking if we had one, and it hadn’t occurred to us to make one prior to this. However, we’ve spotted plenty of fakes, which makes us uneasy. We don’t want more people getting defrauded.

“We realise there are a thousand other worthy causes to donate to, and remain forever grateful if you choose to donate to this one. All we want are our lives back.”

He wasn’t the only person to blast the fundraiser, with some Twitter users saying the victims were now ‘scamming’ people too.

One wrote: “Lmao, the scammed are now doing the scamming in legitimate broad daylight, their £600k goal is more than the amounts they disclosed on the show.”

“Simon taught these girls very well, now they’re on a mission to scam the public,” another added. “You mean to tell me that they didn’t make any money from that documentary? That Netflix didn’t even assist them to pay off their debts?”

A third remarked: “Yeah, they’re definitely trying to capitalise, then again if people wanna help them, I guess it’s their choice. Not me though!”
