Simon Leviev Biography

Simon Leviev (סיימון לבייב) was born as Shimon Yehuda Hayut in Ramat Elchanan, Bnei Brak, Israel. His father is Rabbi Yohanan Hayut, the chief rabbi of El Al Airlines. According to the documentary his mother claims she has not seen him since his teen years.

Criminal Life

The criminal history of the professional conman dates back to his teen years. When Simon was 15 years of age, he moved to the US and was later accused of stealing his friend’s credit card information for financial fraud.

In 2011, Simon was arrested and charged in his home country for chasing checks he stole from his employer. He reportedly fled the country into Jordan with a fake passport. From Jordan, Simon sneaked into Europe.

Whilst in Europe, he defrauded several women and was arrested in Finland (2015). He was sentenced to three (3) years imprisonment. After he finished his sentence, he was sentenced in Israel to answer for his 2011 crimes. He fled the country once again and changed his name posing as the youngest son of Israel’s King of Diamonds, Lev Leviev.

He defrauded so many women and tricked them into taking several loans which he used in financing his luxurious life. Simon was arrested in Greece by Interpol and was sentenced to 15 months imprisonment. He was released five (5) months later due to the Covid-19 in 2020.

The conman is currently wanted in different European countries including Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Norway, and the United Kingdom.
