In a new ‘Call Her Daddy’ podcast taped from the Orange County facility, Anna Sorokin detailed how she effortlessly conned New York City’s upper society. She claimed that she had never told any irrational lies that had resulted in anyone being criminally harmed.
The scammer, who used the name Anna Delvey in New York, said she wasn’t doing anything wrong. Pretending to have more than $60 million in a trust fund wasn’t unusual, as “60 million is borderline impoverished in New York.”
She also stated that it was simple to ask for money because people assumed she had it, The Blast reported. Sorokin said on the show that she wasn’t a con artist and was simply being herself during her time in New York, which might soon come to an end if she is deported in the coming weeks.
