Who is Anna Sorokin?
Anna Sorokin was born in Russia in 1991. The 2007 year her family decided to move to a small town near Cologne (Germany), where live mostly working-class people. Anna's father worked as a truck driver, after that he started sale heaters and air conditioners. In 2011, Ms. Sorokin went to London to study at St. Martin's College, then left him and moved to Paris. With ties and fraud, she took a few loans in the United States worth about $200,000.

A jury found her guilty of eight of the 10 counts she was charged with. On 9 may 2019 Anna Sorokin was condemned to 12 years in prison.
The Paradox of Vanity Fair
Much of the fascination with Sorokin revolved around glittering tales of luxury. She clearly understood that people want money. She gave it and people did what Sorokin tells. Using intelligence, savvy and politeness, she conquered Manhattan.
Netflix acquired the rights to the life story of fake heiress Anna Delvey aka Sorokin. Netflix is collaborating with Shondaland, the production company founded by Shonda Rhimes, for a project based on a lengthy New York magazine profile of Sorokin-Delvey. That profile, written by the journalist Jessica Pressler, focused on Delvey's impressive ability to project wealth and power — her tickets of admission to New York's socialite scene — by posing as a German heiress with a $60 million trust fund.
With her fake identity, she lived a life of luxury allegedly funded by a string of people, companies, and financial institutions who bought her story. No matter how awful it is, you see, it is genius!
