Con artists seem to be having a moment lately. But a con artist's unravelling is what hooks people the most.
First we had Anna Sorokin, who became a household name following the popular Netflix documentary Inventing Anna. It told the story of how she convinced New York's high society that she was a German socialite and wealthy heiress. She also scammed them out of millions of dollars. But then there was the major fall from grace, involving charges, convictions and time spent in custody.
She isn't the only woman who has duped the rich and powerful. Sophia Nur played a similar game, except her targets were some of the online world's biggest social media influencers.

Nur reportedly swindled them out of more than $10 million, prompting the social media hashtag #survivingsophia to go viral. But it was this very hashtag that eventually led to her undoing.
Who is Sophia Nur and what did she do?
According to TikTok user King Asante, Sophia Nur positioned herself as a Toronto-based publicist, and for more than two years, used that role to scam "cash, credit cards, food and flights" from big-name influencers and YouTubers including Jeff Wittek, Rickey Thompson, Denzel Dion and Suzy Antonyan.
