Sorokin, Who Swindled N.Y.’s Elite, Is Sentenced to 4 to 12 Years in Prison

Anna Sorokin, the fake German heiress who swindled her way into Manhattan’s elite party circles, was sentenced on Thursday to four to 12 years in prison for bilking hotels, banks and a private jet operator out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The sentencing capped a case of a young grifter who spun her tale with brazen flair. Ms. Sorokin, who used the name “Anna Delvey,” wore designer clothes, lived in boutique hotels, dined in expensive restaurants and lured investors for a $40 million private club — all without a penny to her name.

...

She was a bit too eager, and clumsy, about her scam. And also starting from zero.

Trump, on the other hand, started with tens of millions (at least) and spent decades building his scam. They are still trying to trace all of the tricks. But he was clearly playing the same game as "Anna Delvey" -- lie your way to wealth.
