Anna Delvey's latest scam might still be happening. The New York City socialite took over pop culture these past few weeks after outlets like Vanity Fair and New York magazine detailed her extensive suspect activity that mainly consisted of convincing people and companies to give her money for larger projects while living a lavish lifestyle she could not afford. It all caught up to her in the end, and she's currently in Rikers awaiting trial. However, Shonda Rhimes heard the story and swiftly acquired the rights to Jessica Pressler’s New York magazine article for her first project at Netflix. In the end, Delvey might be getting exactly what she wanted.
That's because we currently can't get enough of scammers, and luckily, there's no short supply of totally bonkers female con artists. Throughout history, a handful have popped up in varied and wild ways, scamming their way into fortune and fame through the world of beauty, paranormal, and even ISIS.
