Anna Delvey had her education at  Bischöfliche Liebfrauenschule Eschweiler (Episcopal School of Our Lady of Eschweiler), a Catholic grammar school in Eschweiler.

In 2007, Delvey’s family relocated to North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, where her father emerged as an executive at a transport company until company.

Anna Delvey in 2011, after she had graduated, left Germany to live in London and Paris.

The following year,2012, Anna Delvey did a brief internship at a public relations company in Berlin.

Anna Delvey thereafter moved to Paris, where she was earning around €400 monthly through an internship for Purple, a French fashion magazine.

 Anna Delvey Fraudulent Activities

Anna Delvey conceived of a private members’ club and art foundation, which included leasing a large building to feature pop-up shops and exhibitions by notable artists she met during her internship.

Later, Anna Delvey later made some fake financial documents to substantiate her claims of having a multimillion-euro trust fund and forged multiple wire transfer confirmations.

The documents were used as well as fraudulent checks, to trick banks, acquaintances, and realtors into paying out cash and approving large loans without collateral.

Anna Delvey used the proceeds to fund her lavish lifestyle, including lodging in various multiple upper-class hotels.

From  2013 to 2017, Anna Delvey defrauded and deceived major financial institutions, banks, hotels, and individuals which amounts to $275,000.

In 2015, Anna Delvey met art collector and University of Pennsylvania student Michael Xufu Huang at a dinner party, and having learned that Huang planned to attend the Venice Biennale, she offered to she accompany him.

Huang accepted Anna Delvey’s offer and booked a flight and hotel room for her on the understanding that he would be repaid for the $2,000–$3,000 cost.

Contrarily, on their return to New York, Delvey pretended to have forgotten the arrangement and failed to pay.

Huang at first assumed Delvey was simply absent-minded, until 2015 when Delvey also attended Art Basel in Miami Beach.

At the Beach, Anna Delvey had hired a public relations firm to book a birthday party for herself at Sadelle’s restaurant in January 2016.

After her credit card was declined and pictures of Huang surfaced at the event on social media, Huang was asked by restaurant staff if he had Delvey’s contact details.

Huang suspected  Delvey, especially noticing that she strangely always paid with cash and lived in a hotel, not an apartment.

In November 2016, Anna Delvey submitted some false documents as part of a loan application for $22 million to City National.

City National refused to extend credit when Delvey failed to provide the source of the Swiss assets, and she then applied for a loan from Fortress.

Fortress conditionally agreed to consider the application if she paid $100,000 to cover legal expenses relating to the application.

In December 2016, due to Anna Delvey’s inability to pay rent, the Church Missions House was instead leased to Fotografiska New York.

In January  2017, Anna Delvey convinced City National to grant her a temporary overdraft facility for $100,000, promising she will repay quickly.

She provided fake AOL email addresses of “Peter Hennecke”, a non-existent business manager, and when suspicions came up, she claimed that he died and invented a new persona, “Bettina Wagner”.

Later, prosecutors in her trial later showed that Anna Delvey used Google Search to query “create fake untraceable email”.

Anna Delvey remitted the $100,000 to Fortress for the loan application but a managing director at Fortress became suspicious of her application due to discrepancies in her paperwork.

For instance, Anna claimed to be of German heritage, but her passport showed her as being born in Russia.

When the director arranged to verify Delvey’s assets by meeting her bankers in Switzerland, Anna Delvey quickly withdrew the loan application to prevent further scrutiny.

In February 2017, the $55,000 portion of the overdraft not spent by Fortress as part of the due diligence process was returned to Anna Delvey.

Anna Delvey spent the money lavishly on luxury clothes, electronics, and a personal trainer as well as $800 for hair highlighting and $400 for eyelash extensions.

Anna Delvey had a case of 1975 Dom Pérignon champagne delivered to the staff in an attempt to keep them on her side but hotel policy prevented the staff from keeping the gift.

By March 2017, a month after receiving the $55,000 remaining from her loan application fee, as a result of her lavish spending, Anna Delvey had run out of money.

Anna Delvey then would offer to take friends out for drinks and dinner but when it was time to pay the bill, she would claim that she had forgotten her credit cards or her credit cards weren’t going to work.

At the time, Delvey was very active in the New York social scene, she attended dinner parties where she met Macaulay Culkin and Martin Shkreli.

In April 2017, Anna Delvey deposited $160,000 worth of fraudulent checks into a Citibank account, in which she was able to retrieve $70,000 in usable funds, and then transferred $30,000 to 11 Howard to pay the outstanding bill.

In Morocco, Anan Delvey also lodged at Kasbah Tamadot, a Virgin Limited Edition luxury hotel, and at the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Casablanca.

Twice in  August  2017, Anna Delvey had allegedly deposited two bad checks worth $15,000 into her account at Signature Bank and over the next few days, she withdrew approximately $8,200 in cash before the checks were returned.

Anna Delvey Indictment and Arrests

Anna Delvey was arrested in October 2017, in a sting operation planned by Michael McCaffrey, a police officer with the New York Police Department in joint forces Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

To facilitate the “sting”, McCaffrey worked closely with Sorokin’s former friend, Rachel Williams.

During the time, Anna Delvey was staying at Passages Malibu, a luxury rehab/addiction treatment facility near the beach in Los Angeles County, California.

To convince Sorokin to enter a more public space where an arrest would be more easily carried out, officer McCaffrey had her former friend arrange a lunch meeting at a restaurant outside of the facility.

As planned, immediately after Anna Delvey left the addiction treatment facility, she was apprehended by officers from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Later that same month, Anna Delvey was indicted by a grand jury convened by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

The indictment was on two counts of attempted grand larceny in the first degree, three counts of grand larceny in the second degree, and one count of grand larceny in the third degree.

Again, she was indicted on one count of misdemeanor theft of services for the fraudulent loan applications made to City National and Fortress, the check fraud, the cost of the trip to Morocco, and the unpaid hotel and restaurant bills.

During the trial, Anna Delvey’s lawyer in defense said her intent all along was to repay the debt and that services were given to her in exchange for publicity on Instagram.

The lawyer further described Anna Delvey as an entrepreneur with a comparison to Frank Sinatra, claiming they both created a “golden opportunity” in New York.

In April 2019, after a two-day deliberation, the jury found Anna Delvey guilty of eight charges, which included grand larceny in the second degree, attempted grand larceny, and theft of services.

Anna Delvey however was found not guilty of two other charges including one of attempted grand larceny in the first degree relating to the original loan application with City National.

The other was one of larceny in the second degree relating to the alleged theft of $62,000 from Rachel Williams in Marrakesh.

In May 2019, Anna Delvey was sentenced to 4 to 12 years in state prison, and fined $24,000.

She was also ordered to pay restitution of $199,000, including $100,000 to City National, $70,000 to Citibank, and approximately two-thirds of the amount she owed Blade.

The amounts, as well as approximately $75,000 in legal fees related to the trial, were paid from proceeds of Anna Delvey’s  $320,000 deal with Netflix.

The court however let Delvey keep the remaining $22,000.

Anna Delvey was also not compelled to pay the $160,000 in legal fees owed to Perkins Coie related to the unsuccessful lease of Church Missions House, $65,000 in legal fees.

Due to Gibson Dunn related to the unsuccessful $22 million loan application, and $30,000 in legal fees due to Lowenstein Sandler.

Anna Delvey was locked up at Rikers Island during the trial, where she had 13 infractions for misbehavior such as fighting and disobeying orders and was put into solitary confinement during Christmas.

In February 2021, Anna Delvey was released from prison on parole, and after release, she checked in to The NoMad hotel and contracted a German camera crew to follow her and film her activities.

Six weeks after her release on parole, Annaa Delvey in March  2021, was brought into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for visa overstay.

She was remanded in a New Jersey county jail by ICE awaiting deportation to Germany, which she is legally contesting.

Later, an immigration judge ruled that if Anna Delvey were freed, she “would have the ability and inclination to continue to commit fraudulent and dishonest acts”.

In October 2022, Anna Delvey was granted a $10,000 bail bond, released from prison, and required to remain in a 24-hour home confinement with electronic monitoring and no access to social media.
