Anna Delvey: Socialite or Con Artist?

In our first episode, we discuss the timeline and origins
of the enigma that is Anna Delvey.

From 2013 through 2016, Delvey managed to work her way into the upper echelon of society’s elite, befriending celebrities, moguls, financiers, and attorneys. With seemingly endless amounts of cash on hand, Delvey convinced everyone around her that she was filthy rich and loved to spend money. Her origin story was mysterious. No one really knew where she came from or who her family was. There was speculation that her father was an oil tycoon or possibly a Russian diplomat. Others assumed that she was just another trust fund brat spending her inheritance on long hotel stays and expensive food. The truth about Delvey’s identity would not come to light until she was finally arrested on indictment of six counts of grand larceny, attempted grand larceny, and theft of services. As of the recording of the podcast, Delvey has not been sentenced, but is due to appear in court for arraignment on October 30, 2018.
