Since the release of the documentary which has taken the internet by storm - a film in which Leviev is unmasked as a notorious digital conman - the fraudster has decided to make the most of his new-found infamy.

According to TMZ, the 31-year-old Israeli joined Cameo on Tuesday February 15 and quickly received a wave of requests from fans for messages.

He's been so popular that he's reportedly made a staggering $30,000 (£22,000) in his first three days on the platform, charging $200 ($150) for a personal video and $2,000 (£1,469) per video for businesses.

People have been asking him for everything from birthday and anniversary messages, to motivational talks.

He'll even make jokey references to the film, such as saying that his enemies are after him - a phrase he used constantly in order to convince his string of partners to send him money borrowed from credit cards.

This is despite the fact that he denies he is the 'Tinder Swindler'.

Many online have voiced their anger at the fact Leviev - real name Shimon Hayut - is still making decent money, despite his crimes.

One person wrote on Twitter: "Tinder Swindler conned multiple women out of millions of dollars that they are on the hook for paying back...but no he isn't in jail, he's on cameo."

Another said: "For $209 you can get a Cameo from the Tinder Swindler… I can’t with society."

Others called out Cameo for allowing him to make money off the platform, with one person describing it as "f**ked up."

Leviev was arrested in 2019 for conning women out of $10m, and spent five months in jail for fraud.
