While the world sees them as scammers who churn out thousands of dollars from innocent people, what do two of the most famous scammers think of each other? Or do they ever even know each other? Yes, we are indeed talking about Anna Delvey from Netflix’s Inventing Anna and Fyre Festival organizer Billy McFarland. So what exactly was the dynamic between these two criminals?
Well, according to the Netflix Original, Anna Delvey and Billy McFarland did actually know each other. In fact, they even had a rather interesting bond. But the question remains, what about their bond in real life? Do the real Anna and Billy know each other? If yes, did they ever try to scam each other? And most importantly, who got the better of whom? Here is everything you’d need to know about the duo.
