Netflix has a knack for getting the most interesting subjects for true crime docu-series and movies. Time and again, the streamer has proved why it is top of the line when it comes to original content. This year, among other projects, two of Netflix’s most talked-about titles were Inventing Anna, a miniseries on the life and crimes of Anna Sorokin (Delevé), and The Tinder Swindler, a film on notorious conman Simon Leviev. While the respective show and film remained highly discussed by fans and went viral in 2022, their popularity landed Anna Sorokin and Simon Leviev in the top 10 of Google’s list of most searched people of 2022. This may come as a surprise but only confirms the power of quality ingredients.

When The Tinder Swindler came out in February, it quickly caught on with true crime lovers. The nearly two-hour documentary film shows how Simon Leviev conned several women after meeting them on the popular dating app. For many viewers, the events depicted in the film ring true because of their strange connection to the reality of dating apps and how gullible people can be harmed and robbed of their money. If you haven’t had a chance to watch The Tinder Swindler, you should watch it on Netflix right now. Interestingly, Simon Leviev has occupied the 10th position in the recently released list of Google’s most searched people of 2022.
