Anna created fake documents to trick banks, security agents, brokers, and dealers, into getting cash and acquiring large loans without any security or guarantee.

Anna Delvey’s Fraud
The Base of Anna’s Foundation
After being familiar with New York City’s lifestyle, she set up a private club and art foundation named “Anna Delvey Foundation” to raise funds from the city’s wealthiest people. She came up with the idea of renting the entire Church Missions House. And composed of six floors with an area of 4,200 m2 (45,000 sq.ft.) for an art studio and multi-purpose events venue, which RFR Holdings owned.
DJ Elle Dee
DJ Elle Dee, who was photographed with Anna at a party, once said that she was pretending to be a wealthy person during a party. On the other hand, after the party, she would ask attendees for a place to sleep. After they refused to give her a place to sleep, she slept in a car. Adding to this, Dee continued saying that he has attended multiple events organized by Sorokin.
Most people hardly know each other at her parties, as if they are meeting for the second time, like Dee and Anna. Most of the guests sat quietly and just stared at their mobiles during such parties. Also, she depended on her contacts for payments during checkouts, claiming that she had some credit card issues or had forgotten her wallet. These expenses range from her stay at the hotels to her flights totaling tens of thousands of dollars.
Michael Xufu Huang
In 2015, Anna met a University student, Michael Xufu Huang, and learned he was planning to visit “Venice Biennale”, an international cultural exhibition in Italy. She showed interest in joining him for the venue and he booked a flight ticket and hotel room for her after knowing that Sorokin would repay him about US$ 2,000 to US$ 3,000. After returning, she refused to pay the amount and he assumed that Anna was an absent-minded girl.
City National Fraud
In November 2016, Sorokin arranged fake documents so that she could submit them to City National. They didn’t agree to extend her credit card limit that she was asking for based on her accounts in Swiss assets, and later she decided to apply for a loan from Fortress. Fortress agreed to approve her application demanding that she had to pay US$ 100,000 to cover all the legal outlay regarding the application.
As she could not pay rent, the power of Church Missions House was transferred to Fotografiska New York, a branch of the Swedish photography museum. On January 2017, Sorokin assured City National to grant a short-term overdraft facility for US$ 100,000. She provided a fake email address of a non-existent business manager; after coming on the radar of questioners, she affirmed that he died and created a new phony id for further process. At the time of her trial, the district attorney said that for her query, she searched “how to create an untraceable fake email.”
In April 2017, Sorokin deposited fraudulent checks of US$ 160,000 into Citibank, among which she recovered US$ 70,000 in funds. In May 2017, she made her stay at La Mamounia, a 5-star luxury hotel in Marrakesh. After some days, at the time of checking out, she began to give excuses for paying the bills for her stay. She was doing such things repeatedly till July 2017, when Sorokin became homeless; at the time, she contacted Duke and asked him to provide lodging for her. After he refused to do so, she contacted her friend Racheal Williams for help, but no one was ready to help her. She was on the radar of many investigating teams and offices during this time.
Indictment and Arrest
After months of escape, she got arrested on October 3, 2017, after a joint sting operation line up by a police officer with New York Police Department along with Manhattan District Attorney’s office. To make this operation happen, McCaffrey, one officer, worked closely with Rachel Williams, Sorokin’s former friend.
