The Tinder Swindler: a true crime classic

Few documentaries have made as big a splash as The Tinder Swindler, the story of an online dating scammer, Simon, and three of the many women he conned out of huge amounts of money.

When the true crime feature came out last year, it was the most-watched feature documentary in Netflix’s history, notching up 166 million views in its first month.

The Tinder Swindler deservedly won its director and writer, Felicity Morris, a Bafta but no one, including Morris, would deny that the real stars of the show are Cecilie, Pernilla and Ayleen.
