Fake millionaire Anna Sorokin wants to stay in New York

New start. Fresh out of years in prison in New York, where she deceived the elite of finance, Russian-German fake millionaire Anna “Delvey” Sorokin said she would fight not to be deported to Germany and stay in the American megalopolis.

The 30-year-old was released on bail Friday evening and placed under house arrest with an electronic bracelet in a Manhattan apartment. She had been detained for a year and a half in a federal immigration police (ICE) detention center, 100 kilometers north of New York, for overstaying her tourist visa.

Arrested in 2017, convicted two years later of fraud and imprisoned in a New York prison from which she was released in 2021 for good behavior, Sorokin was immediately re-arrested by ICE. Free under conditions, she has been under a deportation order to Germany since February, against which she has repeatedly appealed.

A fictitious patrimony of 60 million dollars

Interviewed at length on Saturday by the New York Times, at her home, Anna Sorokin said she refused to be sent back to Germany by the immigration authorities. “Letting them deport me would have sounded like a sign of surrender, confirmation that I was perceived as a frivolous person who only thinks about obscene wealth, which is simply not the reality,” he said. she assured.

“I could have left but I chose not to because I’m trying to make up for my mistakes. I have such a history in New York that I have the feeling that if I were in Europe, I would flee from something, ”insisted the young woman, whose story inspired producer Shonda Rhimes, who makes it a Netflix miniseries, “Inventing Anna,” starring Julia Garner.

Between 2016 and 2017, Anna Sorokin had managed to deceive financial elites and New York celebrities by posing as a wealthy German heiress, at the head of a fictitious heritage of 60 million dollars. The young woman had thus obtained tens of thousands of dollars in bank loans, traveled for free by private jet and lived on the hook of Manhattan palaces for a slate of 275,000 dollars.
