Coming to TV soon, the story of Anna Sorokin who posed as an heiress worth millions, who conned many people out of millions in scams.
From a BBC news article:

A German woman who posed as a billionaire heiress in New York has been released from prison.
Anna Sorokin, who pretended to be a wealthy socialite named Anna Delvey, was released from prison on Thursday, according to US media reports.
She was found guilty in 2019 of theft of services and grand larceny, having scammed more than $200,000 (£145,000) from banks and luxury hotels.
It is thought Sorokin could now face deportation.
Her release comes months after she reportedly apologised at a parole hearing in October last year.
"I just want to say that I'm really ashamed and I'm really sorry for what I did," the New York Post, who obtained a transcript, quoted Sorokin as saying. "I completely understand that a lot of people suffered when I thought I was not doing anything wrong."
A lawyer for Sorokin previously told Insider that she was trying to appeal against her conviction, despite her planned parole release.
'Fake it until she could make it'
During her trial prosecutors told how Sorokin, under the assumed name of Anna Delvey, pretended she was worth about $60m with a trust fund in Europe.

Maintaining the scam for several years, Sorokin used her phony persona to facilitate a luxury lifestyle where she lived in a lavish New York hotel and ate out at stylish restaurants.

Horatio, I can sell ice to an Eskimo. Honestly, if I were to go down a bad path, I know I could probably get what I wanted out of anyone.
Most people are really gullible.

I hate the idea of conning anyone but it’s often just too easy.
