    Convicted Swindler Released with an Ankle Monitor as Deportation Fight Plays Out

    Published on

    Fraudulent socialite and convicted con artist Anna Sorokin has been released from detention and placed under house arrest, according to immigration officials and her representative. Her scam served as the inspiration for a Netflix series.

    According to her publicist Juda Engelmayer, Sorokin is being held in her New York City home.

    In a statement, Engelmayer said, “Anna now has her opportunity to demonstrate her commitment to growing and giving back and being a positive impact on those she meets.”

    “She has hurdles before her, and she will navigate them with strength and determination, using her experiences and lessons learned”

    The release of Sorokin, 31, who is challenging his deportation to Germany and is wearing an ankle monitor, was confirmed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    2019 saw her conviction for defrauding $275,000 from banks, hotels, and affluent New Yorkers to fund her opulent lifestyle.

    Prosecutors claimed that under the alias Anna Delvey, she misrepresented herself as the daughter of a German minister or an oil baron and made up a $67 million abroad bankroll to give the appearance that she could pay off her obligations.

    She simply got in over her head trying to launch a private arts club with the intention of making payments as she could, according to her trial attorney.

    The incident served as the inspiration for this year’s “Inventing Anna” Netflix series.

    Sorokin was apprehended by immigration authorities last year after serving three years in prison.
