The best watched documentary in 2022 on Netflix is the controversial documentary 'The Tinder Swindler'. In it, the makers speak with three victims of Simon Leviev. The 33-year-old Israeli fake billionaire cheated women of hundreds of thousands of dollars
via Tinder. One of them is the Dutch Ayleen Charlotte. Ayleen Charlotte hesitated for a long time about participating in the documentary 'The Tinder Swindler’.
With her contribution to the Netflix documentary
and sharing her story as a speaker at events, she wants to warn people about scams because it can also happen to you. She also wants to inspire and motivate victims of fraud and give them the strength to regain trust.
Charlotte was thrown into the public eye when she came forward with her story in The Netflix documentary The Tinder Swindler. From the 2nd of February 2022 over 200 countries saw her (until then) private story for the first time and she
won the GASA (Global Anti Scam Alliance) Award for Scam Fighter Person of the year 2023.
Why Ayleen Charlotte want to share her story, and what she would like to achieve can describe best in these three purposes.
- Breaking down the shame and taboo on Fraud.
- Teaching government agencies, banks and companies to learn from her story and changing policies, systems and processes to detect and prevent fraud.
- Inspire and motivate victims of fraud and to not take no for an answer.
After the documentary was released, Ayleen Charlotte received many messages from people all over the world, that she has given them confidence and strength to overcome and helped them with their own story. Either it was because they were in a toxic relationship
or being a victim of any kind of fraud themselves. ‘If it helped that I stood up, that others can see that they are either on the way to being scammed, have been scammed or are in a destructive relationship, then it’s worth it’ Ayleen says.
Statistics Victims of fraud
People worldwide lost over 55 billion in scams, the victims of fraud are not only women but men, women and companies from different layers of our society. Besides the money part, the social and emotional trauma
cannot even be measured. As only 7% of all scams are reported, Ayleen Charlotte will fight to increase this number. Ayleen Charlotte cannot even speak about the people who have taken their lives over being a fraud victim. To include victims
into the discussion when it comes to changing policies, systems, processes, laws and regulations will create a much bigger impact.
