A German woman who presented herself as a rich heiress and scammed elites in New York was on Thursday gave four to twelve years jail term. The woman, Anna Sorokin, was last month convicted of scam in excess of $200,000 by a New York jury and was sentenced yesterday, May 9, 2019. The 28-year-old adorned herself in expensive wears to convince elite about her claimed status. She was blinded by the glitter and glamour of New York City, Judge Diane Kiesel said. The judge said Sorokin had a dangerous taste for living an expensive lifestyle whatever it takes. To get this expensive lifestyle, she claimed she was worth $67 million backed with false documents and took a total of $275,000 from bank and people, prosecutors said. They also pointed to Sorokin's expensive appearance in court as proof of her fake life.
