The world was recently a buzz with stories about a man who not only charmed many women, but also managed to swindle them out of millions. Who exactly is The Tinder Swindler. If we were take a closer look at the man behind the Swindler, Simon Leviev we will find that he does not exist. Simon is merely a character created by a man with a sick and twisted mind. 

These are just my thoughts.... 

Let's take a closer look to see how the character posibly came about.  

The man known as The Tinder Swindler created the perfect man, the kind of man that most woman yearn for. If were to compare the swindler with the character in a book that had woman across the world swooning over, we will find distinct similarities. The character I am referring is the one and only Christian Grey, the most allegeable bachelor and main character of the 50 shades of Grey series.

Let's take a closer look and compare some of these similarities: The Tinder Swindler had the perfect blue print to create Simon Leviev.

First Similarity: 

When Christian Grey took Anna on their first official date, he flew  to another city to have dinner in a restaurant reserved only for the two of them. 

The Tinder Swindler meets with one of victims, swoops her off her feet and flies her,  his ex-girlfriend , with his baby to another country for their first date.

Second Similarity:

Christian Grey has a driver/ body guards who will do anything to protect him, even take a bullet for him. 

The Tinder Swindler has his body guard who is seen to have taken a beating to protect The Swindler.

Third Similarity:

Christian Grey has a dark past with a history abuse before being adopted into the Grey family. 

In the one interview one of the women mentions that the swindler had scars on his back, scars that he claimed to have gotten while he was detained in prison in South Africa.

Other Similarities:

Include the following, both characters have the tendency to be romantic, affectionate, flashy and punitive at the same time, but these are only a few of the similarities that can help one understand how the swindler could have charmed these woman. 

Despite the many similarities they also differ in many ways. Christian's character gave and only wanted Anna's  love and commitment, while The Swindler used the women to help feed his greed. Using threats agains his life from his so called enemies to extort  money and favours from the women. 

These are just my thoughts and perceptions on this matter, after all it wouldn't be the first time that a work of fiction had inspired someone to commit the perfect crime.  

The Tinder Swindler, is merely a character created in the mind of man with a brilliant plan to live the life most only dream of.  

Let us know your thoughts on The Who and What The Tinder Swindler truly is???
