Anna Delvey, nee Sorokina, who is in a California immigration prison, does her best not to lose the attention of the public, and also continues to earn money. True, this time – in a fairly honest way.

Anna’s main income was a fee from Netflix, which filmed the mini-series “Inventing Anna” based on the adventures of a fraudster.

The film was based on a revealing article from New York Magazine, as well as an interview with Anna herself, her memoirs and comments.

For all this, Anna received $ 320 thousand, which gave her the opportunity to pay $ 200 thousand in compensation to her victims, as well as pay off legal costs.

But Anna is not going to stop there. First, she got into digital art and sold NFTs, drawings she created while in prison. Naturally, the series of pictures tells her own story and even has the title “Reinventing Anna”. Buyers of NFT are waiting for a variety of bonuses – from a telephone conversation with Anna to a “package with personal belongings.” Each drawing is estimated by the creator at about $90.

In May of this year, Delvey hosted an exhibition of her prison work, in which she was even able to appear – though only in the form of a pre-recorded video.

Last but not least, Delvey signed a contract to create a documentary series with Bunim/Murray Productions. It’s probably needless to say that the series is a sequel to the Netflix movie and tells about Anna’s fate from Anna’s point of view.

It is not known how the fraudster is going to surprise the audience further, but, as the classic said, “if the stars are lit, then someone needs it.”

A native of Domodedovo near Moscow, Anna Sorokina moved to Germany with her parents when she was 16 years old. Soon she went to study in London, then in Paris. And then, in 2013, she flew to the United States with a ready-made legend, according to which she, Anna Delvi, is the only heiress of her parents’ millions, but that’s just something with European bank cards she doesn’t add up in the States and therefore she is constantly forced to ask about a favor: give money for a taxi, pay for accommodation in an expensive hotel, pay off a bill from a store …

In 2019, the court found Anna guilty of fraud and sentenced her to 12 years in prison with the right to review the sentence after 4 years. She was released from prison, but soon ended up in it again – on charges of violating US immigration law. Now she is trying with all her might to achieve release and the abolition of deportation from the States.
