Fraudulent heiress Anna ‘Delvey’ Sorokin, who conned $200,000 from New York banks, hotels, and socialites in order to be ‘deported to Germany,’ has been arrested.

Anna “Delvey” Sorokin, a phony heiress, will be deported to Germany after being released from immigration detention in the United States.

By acting as a wealthy heiress from Cologne, the German con artist, 31, allegedly conned $200,000 from New York banks, hotels, and socialites.

Sorokin, who is the subject of the smash Netflix movie Inventing Anna, spent a year after her release from jail in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center in upstate New York.

She had been convicted of fraud in April 2019 as part of an elaborate plan in which she claimed to have access to a £51 million family inheritance under the name Anna Delvey.

After spending nearly four years of her sentence, Sorokin was granted release in February 2021.

She had applied for asylum, but her application was denied, and she will now be transported back to Frankfurt, according to The New York Post.

On Monday afternoon, her lawyer, Manny Arora, informed NBC News that she had been unable to contact Sorokin.

“They shouldn’t be able to deport her until the 19th, according to the law.” The reason for this is that the deportation order was signed on February 17, giving us 30 days to file an appeal,” she added in a statement.

“I haven’t heard from Miss Sorokin since this afternoon, so I’m operating on the assumption that she’ll be deported.”

Sorokin is said to have received £230,000 for Julia Garner’s portrayal of her in the nine-part Inventing Anna series.

She’d spent the money on restitution to the banks she’d defrauded, as well as state fines.

Sorokin is working on another limited documentary series with Bunim/Murray Productions, according to Deadline.
