Or Gilbert Chikli who invented the "CEO scam" and was able to persuade bank and company officers to transfer money by simply ringing them and impersonating their CEO. He lived in luxury in Ashdod for many years, but was dumb enough to travel to Ukraine to be arrested and handed over to France.

Very interesting way to tell a story, though about halfway through it started getting more annoying than entertaining.

Did none of you feel bad for Cecile?!? This is a person with feelings.

She says that what hurt most was the betrayal, less the money

Personally, it felt more like MTV catfished than catch me if you can, although yes in catch me if you can he does use the nurse.

@Dan  really disappointed. A random conman no matter how effective is no catch me if you can. This guy never faked being a doctor or a pilot. He simply trolled women.

Sorry that I'm not up to date on MTV?

He jetsets across the world, has multiple aliases, and gets old girls to pay for new girls to keep the scam going. Seems close enough to me.

Though the story could also serve as a dictionary definition for Blond.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Hayut grew up in the predominantly ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak in central Israel and as a child studied in a Talmud Torah elementary school near his home. His father, Yohanan Hayut, is the chief rabbi of El Al.
