A 28-year-old Israeli yahoo boy, Shimon Hayut, has been arrested in Greece for scamming hundred of women of thousands of dollars after posing as the son of a billionaire.

He is reported to have conned unsuspecting women he met on Tinder by posing as the son of Simon Leviev, the son of billionaire diamond merchant Lev Leviev.

He was arrested in Greece following a joint operation between Interpol and Israeli police.

Israeli authorities have requested his extradition to his home country, where he has been wanted on charges of theft, forgery and fraud since 2011.

He is also under investigation for fraud in the UK, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Germany.

One of his victims, Cecile Fjellhoy, 29, from Lillestrom in Norway, says Hayut convinced her he was wealthy when they met in London. She said he overwhelmed her with his lavish spending on private jets, hotels, dinners and on staff including a bodyguard.

Unknown to her, he was only setting her up for a huge scam.

She was so taken in by his act she readily agreed when he asked her for a credit card – claiming he could not afford to leave a digital trail because of security issues.

Fjellhoy claims that she filled out documents for an American Express platinum card according to his instructions and he told her to file an income of £200,000.

She took out huge loans for the card and claims Hayut was soon living large at her expense.

Fjellhoy was captured on video sobbing uncontrollably while narrating her ordeal
