Fake Heiress Anna Delvey Does Not Want to Be Visited in Prison

She's actually pretty busy and is not particularly interested in anyone's company

Anna Delvey would very much like to be left alone. The faux-heiress, who notoriously scammed her way into elite Manhattan circles in a ruse that ultimately landed her in prison in 2019, has apparently received a number of unsolicited visitors behind bars — something she would like to stop.

“Please do not show up here to visit me unannounced,” Delvey wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. “All you’re achieving by coming here is wasting your time and interfering with my sleep schedule.”

According to Delvey, strangers keep dropping in on her in an attempt to catch her “slipping.”

“No, I haven’t gotten fat or shaved my head, and no, I’m not lonely or in dire need of your company,” she wrote, adding that she is, in fact, “kind of busy.”

“I am not making the same mistake of not checking the visitor‘s identity again, and I won‘t be accepting visits from names I don‘t recognize,” she wrote.

Last year, Delvey, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, was sentenced to four to 12 years in prison for scamming banks into lending her money. Earlier this month, however, it was announced that Sorokin is expected to walk free on early parole in February 2021. According to the New York Post, the grifter will likely be deported to Germany upon her early release.

In the meantime, while Sorokin will not be accepting any more visitors, she added that anyone looking to get in touch with her is welcome to reach out, as long as they “have something interesting to say.” Sorokin left her email address in the Instagram post, adding, “If I want to talk to you, be assured that I will find a way to get back to you.”
