Why do we give such crooks attention and respect?

Because he steals from the wealthy ?

I donít think he necessarily steals from the wealthy, conning someone out of their life savings doesnít make them wealthy. Conning a company that offers luxury services to rich people doesnít either mean stealing from the wealthy.

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

Itís a public interest story. In a sense the media even idolizes/romanticizes such criminals.

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.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

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

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

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...
