TBH, the most painful part of this story in my mind is for his father/family. And it's not like his father is some anonymous guy.

Who is his father? You're familiar with his actual family? He isn't actually a Leviev.

His father is the Rov of Elal.

That's how the son got his cravings for the fine life?

Nobody is giving him respect. It is a simple man-bites-dog interesting story. Media always covers significant crimes.

Because he posed in an apartment that was rented on Airbnb?

If he worked for the mossad or something I might be impressed.

All he does is forge papers, pretend to be leviav.

Also what is ridiculous is for companies to simply dole out services based on name without verifying.

Those are the people that they don't feel comfortable verifying...

So any thoughts on the movie from Netflix?

Seems the guy is living the life again and his poor victims are all paying back their debts (though I imagine they made bank with netflix)

I knew this thread existed somewhere. They say the fraud was in the millions. The Netflix documentary was just from the dating side, I wonder where the real money was stolen from...

“Date” enough single people with savings and clear them out, and it could amount to millions… Unless I’m confusing this with another story, this guy claimed to be the son of a billionaire in order to book luxury experiences (like chartering a yacht.

Correct, and yes he made these women take out loans in the hundreds of thousands.

Tzni'us alert

1. How'd you do that?
2. Can @mods change the default action of clicking quote where a video (or for that matter also images) is quoted to show like that?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

His father is a מנוול in his own right.

In the Youtube bracket, you add the command width=150 (or whatever you want the width to be).

Here is what I did, but I changed the brackets so it shouldn't trigger the command:
