The first teaser for Netflix's new criminal thriller documentary 'The Tinder Swindler' has arrived, and it will make you reconsider using any dating app to find love. It will at least make you think twice.
In the realm of modern love, online dating can be a dangerous game, and not everything that glitters is gold. 'The Tinder Swindler' focuses on the story of a well-known conman who has duped and cheated women out of millions of dollars and is a wanted artist in multiple countries. Here, a single swipe might alter everything.
This Netflix show follows three women who decided it was time for a retaliation. Swipe right or left. It's not easy to find love online, so when Cecilie matches with a handsome billionaire playboy, she can't quite believe it. By all counts he looks to be the man of her dreams. But dreams aren't real, and by the time she discovers this international businessman isn't who he says he is, it's too late. She has been duped.
Nevertheless, when this fairytale ends, a revenge thriller begins. Cecilie discovers his other targets, and once they come together to have a payback. They're victims no more as The Tinder Swindler meets his match.
Given what has happened surrounding The Tinder Swindler, it's understandable that individuals are wary about what they put in their dating profiles and messages – or even if they should use the apps at all.
Dating app businesses have made efforts to increase online safety in recent years due to previous such cases. Tinder and Bumble, for example, now allow users to verify their profiles, allowing potential matches to check that they are who they claim they are.
The Tinder Swindler is directed by first-time filmmaker Felicity Morris, making her characteristic directorial debut after performing as a TV producer for years earlier. Produced by Bernie Higgins, previously associated with shows like Don't F**ck With Cats and modern love.
Morris' debut doc film "The Tinder Swindler" will be streaming on Netflix starting February 2nd, 2022. The facts are yet to be disclosed, but one thing is for sure: this documentary is going to be high on drama. Here is the trailer of talk of the town- The Tinder Swindler!
