The true crime documentary The Tinder Swindler delves into the life of the conman, born Shimon Hayut, who used the dating app Tinder to entice women into giving him money to fund is expensive lifestyle.
After finding out his true identity in a news article, Ayleen decided to give Simon a taste of his own medicine by telling him into hand over his designer clothes for her to sell on eBay.
Instead of giving him the cash, Ayleen kept it for herself to pay off the $140,000 (£103,000) she gave to him during their 14-month relationship.
While Ayleen made money from selling Simon's belongings, her 'boyfriend' was getting increasingly angry as he waited for the cash. He sent voice notes and texts to her through WhatsApp, including threats against her and her family.
One of the messages has left viewers in stitches because it's so outrageous. Simon, who is clearly in a state of panic and desperation, asked Ayleen to pawn her car.
A viewer reacted to the message on Twitter and said: "I’m still thinking about the Tinder Swindler and how this man asked these women for obnoxious amounts of money and suggested they take out loans or PAWN their car to give him $$ pls if a man asked me this I would laugh so hard like are you delusional?! #TinderSwindler".
Another Twitter user shared their reaction and they were left in shock. "I cant believe the tinder swindler asked Ayleen to pawn off her car or sell her house, damn he even said ask your parents 'DO SOMETHING'."
One woman wrote: "The Tinder Swindler asked one of his huns to pawn her car for him? What an audacious brudda #TheTinderSwindler".
Other viewers online were also in disbelief at Simon's message, with one person calling the WhatsApp exchange "wild". Meanwhile someone else quipped: "When the Tinder Swindler asked her to pawn her car I almost fainted".
The Tinder Swindler is available to watch on Netflix now.
