Anna Delvey

Anna Delvey, real name Anna Sorokin, is New York's most recent queen of deceit. The 27-year-old rubbed elbows with the city's coolest party people, leveraging a lucky internship at Purple into an opportunity to befriend fashionistas and nightlife socialites, eventually scamming them out of tens of thousands of dollars. Bad checks, wire fraud, and her innocent big eyes allowed her to live lavishly at luxe hotels like 11 Howard until the faux German heiress eventually landed on Rikers.
