Scammer Anna Delvey tight-lipped about being released

Fake German heiress Anna Sorokin was tight-lipped Saturday about her first night under house arrest in the Big Apple.

The con artist, who called herself Anna Delvey and was the subject of the Netflix series “Inventing Anna,” refused to open the door at the East Village walkup where she is now living. She was released from the Orange County Correctional Facility in Goshen Friday.

“Oh my God, how did you get here?” Sorokin asked The Post, saying she couldn’t talk.

“Not a good time now, maybe later,” the 31-year-said and provided the name of her manager.

She added “Please leave me alone.”

A German film crew captured Sorokin’s arrival Friday night, and crew members went in and out of the building Saturday.

The sparsely furnished apartment where Sorokin is staying had two chairs and a coffee table in the living area, set up as if for an interview.

The rent for the one-bedroom unit was $4,250, according to an online listing.

The five-story building is undergoing renovations and its owner, an LLC, was slapped with a Buildings Department violation in September for work without a permit.


Sorokin, who has an ankle monitor, must spend 24 hours under house arrest. She could be seen in her trademark oversize glasses looking out of the window Saturday.

Sorokin was convicted of scamming $200,000 from banks and businesses and served four years in prison.

She has been held by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement since March 2021 for allegedly overstaying her visa. Sorokin was released to house arrest, and continues to fight her case after posting a $10,000 bond, using money

from her online art sales.

Neighbors in her new digs didn’t seem to mind the con artist in their midst.

“She wasn’t hateful or murderous. She wasn’t scary. I’m definitely opposed to white collar crime. They should be prosecuted as much as any other, but there is something about her that is sympathetic, Abbe Hill, 58, a scenic artist.

Hill’s daughter, Be Hill, 17, said “She stole some money. I didn’t see a problem. I thought it was cool, whatever.”

Hill said she would “ask her how did she do it. I’m curious.”
