Anna Delvey, the notorious “swindler socialite” as a rich heiress to infiltrate the upper echelon of New York City’s social scene, is faced with deportation after her trial ends.

The German citizen, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, is currently facing ten counts of larceny after allegedly defrauding hundreds of thousands of dollars of the banks, hotels and rich friends over the course of several years. Delvey, 28, allegedly went to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program in June 2017, but has remained far past the legal deadline of 90 days.

Rachael Yong Yow, a representative for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), said that the department requested Delvey, will be awarded after her trial, regardless of whether they are found guilty.

“ICE is the request that we be alerted to its release from the local authority, so that they can be taken into ICE custody,” Yow told the INSIDER. “Regardless of whether or not she is convicted, she is prone to deletion because they are a visa waiver overstay. If she is convicted, she is sentenced to serve her time in the US.”

Delvey the story found viral fame after an article exposing her long con was published in the New York magazine last year. After successfully convincing the whole of New York’s social scene that she came from a long line of foreign family money, they guaranteed loans with bad cheques worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in an attempt to get funding for a company they planned to start. She then ripped off months worth of free nights in some of the most luxurious hotels, private jets to meetings with Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, and vacations on yachts in Ibiza for her crimes were revealed.

Now, even after being arrested, Delvey owed more than $250,000 in unpaid legal fees she would have to thank to the company of her.

The AMERICAN law rejects any form of fraud-related crimes “in which the loss to the victim(s) is more than $10,000, as a “deportable offense.” According to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, she stole about $275,000.

Shonda Rhimes, who has been involved in the production of shows like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” is in the process of creating a Netflix series about Delvey life.
