Fake German heiress Anna Sorokin has been taken into custody by US immigration and customs enforcement officials.

The 30-year-old, who was only released from prison last month, was put back behind bars last Thursday after reporting to the immigration services in Manhattan, the New York Post reports.

The con artist, named Anna Delvey, is currently being held in Bergen County Jail in New Jersey.

After her release from prison, Sorokin – a German citizen – was ordered to check in with the immigration authorities for having exceeded her visa.

Sources said she would be deported to Germany on March 26, the day after she turned herself in.

However, Sorokin did not leave the country that day.

It is unclear whether she delayed the deportation by challenging it legally. It is also unclear when she will be deported.

DailyMail.com has contacted ICE for comment.

Sorokin spent just over three years in prison for defrauding banks, hotels and friends to the tune of $ 275,000 in Manhattan in 2016 and 2017, posing as Anna Delvey, the fictional heiress to a German fortune of several billions of dollars.

A Manhattan jury found her guilty of grand theft and other charges in April 2019.

Pretending to be the daughter of a mysterious oil baron in Europe, she lived an exorbitantly expensive Manhattan lifestyle without ever paying for it.

It collapsed in 2017 after she took a friend, a Vanity Fair photo editor, to Marrakesh, collected thousands of charges from hotels, and then handed the photo editor the $ 62,000 bill, promising to pay her back.

Ever since she was released from prison on February 11, she had a German camera crew following her every move and staying on Instagram on social media.

She also stayed at The Nomad Hotel – where rooms can cost nearly $ 300 a night – and shared photos of wine and caviar in her suite.

In her first interview since her release, she said jail was a ‘pointless’ ‘waste of time’ calling the prosecutor an ‘insult to her intelligence’ and boasted that guards treated her like a ‘celebrity’.

Sorokin was paid $ 320,000 by Netflix to access her new series about her, and she used some of the money to pay off her victims.

She is supposed to be writing a book about her prison experience.

‘I think regret is just a pointless feeling because clearly I can’t go back in time and change anything. I did what I did. I’m just trying to fix things and move on, ” she told Insider of her crimes.

‘They [prosecutors] presented me as so thirsty and greedy. I just had this vision. And it didn’t work out.

“I don’t really have a problem with myself as a person because I know I never intended to scam anyone.”
