From the makers of Don’t F**k With Cats, The Tinder Swindler delves into what happens when modern love turns dangerous in a thrilling new documentary released next month.
If you’re somehow starved for a true-crime epic to tune into in 2022, then fear not, Netflix has you well and truly covered.
In the latest documentary film coming to the streaming service, viewers will learn about the so-called Tinder Swindler, who seduced young women around the globe.
By posing as a wealthy, jet-setting diamond mogul, he conned Tinder matches out of thousands of pounds.
Released on February 2, it promises drama, scandal and revenge in shedloads after three women who fell victim to the mystery man’s charms decided it was time for payback.
The official synopsis reads: ‘Swipe, swipe, swipe… It’s not easy to find love online.
‘So when Cecilie matches with a handsome billionaire playboy, she can’t quite believe it when he turns out to be the man of her dreams. But dreams aren’t reality.
‘And by the time she discovers this international businessman isn’t who he says he is, it’s too late.’
In a brand-new trailer for the series, viewers are told by one woman: ‘When I first talked with Simon, immediately we had a bond. He was smart and funny and very impulsive.’
Another weighs in: ’I shared my whole heart with him and then he asked me if I wanted to travel with him on a private jet. I was like, “S**t!”’
The women share how the fraudster took them to a five-star hotel, each recalling their ‘special connection.’
But things turned sour when ‘Simon’ dropped a bombshell on all his dates – he was being threatened and needed to borrow vast sums of cash, and fast.
However, that’s far from the end of the saga, as the women were soon informed by police the man they formed a bond with was ‘not real’ before they were all barraged with threatening messages.
Taking place across the globe – including in London, Rome and Tel Aviv – the feature documentary follows the women as they uncover his true identity and fight to bring him to justice.
We cannot wait to dive into this.
The Tinder Swindler lands on Netflix on February 2.
