Anna Sorokin, who scammed banks and hotels for more than $200,000 while posing as a German heiress, revealed her elaborate scheme for a podcast that was released on Wednesday.
Sorokin, 31, was convicted of theft and grand larceny in 2019 and was released from prison in February 2021. In March, ICE arrested her for allegedly overstaying her visa.
The New York Times reported that by Monday, records suggested that Sorokin was released from the Orange County Correctional Facility in New York as she learned she was being deported to Germany.
While housed at the correctional facility, Sorokin spoke with Alexandra Cooper for a pre-recorded episode of Cooper’s “Call Her Daddy” podcast.
Sorokin revealed how she would underdress when she went to banks, where she acquired thousands in fraudulent loans.
“[I would not] show up in heels, or with a tight dress. I gave them this – I don’t give a f**k vibe,” she said during the March 7 interview, per the Daily Mail.
She also told Cooper that she has never presented a “senseless lie” unless it was to a bank. She went on to deny claims that she posed as a German heiress called Anna Delvey who had a $60 million trust fund.
“It’s completely ridiculous,” she said.
The Daily Mail reported that Sorokin received a $200,000 payout from Netflix for the show “Inventing Anna.” She has reportedly used some of the funds to pay back her victims.
ICE officials declined to tell The New York Times about Sorokin’s current deportation status, but they said she was still in the custody of immigration authorities.
