When Anna Delvey started making a splash in the New York socialite scene, many people weren’t really aware of where she was from. She had seemingly come out of nowhere, leaving everyone to believe her claims that she was a rich German heiress with millions to spend frivolously. The dark truth was that her life wasn’t quite the easy-living fairy tale that she had everyone around her believing.
When everything had come to light, it was revealed that she wasn’t who she said she was. There was no vast fortune, and she had been enjoying her lavish life on the dime of others. It’s hard to imagine something like that happening to us or someone we know, but she was very good at being convincing. She almost got away with it too.
