Fake German heiress Anna Sorokin has revealed her next venture – a limited edition range of NFTs and plans to sell her prison belongings and ‘personal sketches’. 

The convicted con artist is still in prison in upstate New York, awaiting a decision on her deportation case that could oust her from the country for good. 

While that decision looms, Anna is eager to make the most of what could be her last chance at the American dream. 

The range of NFTs are titled ‘Reinventing Anna’ – a play on the title of the hugely successful Netflix series about her life and crimes. 

The lucky bidders will win ‘Access to Anna’ cards which feature a drawing of her in prison speaking through plexiglass to a visitor with the words ‘you look poor’ written beneath the cartoon. 

‘All holders of the Reinventing Anna NFT will get “access to Anna” and a select group of top holders will have access to coveted personal items from her time in prison and personal sketches drawn by Anna herself. 

‘Ten gold edition NFTs that are randomly minted will grant holders the privilege of a one on one call with Anna, and three ultra rare platinum edition NFT holders will get the opportunity to meet Anna in-person, as well as receive a package of personal items,’ a pitch about the NFTs reads.

In a statement, Anna said: ‘I see this first drop as an opportunity to directly connect with my audience and to take charge of the narrative that’s been largely outside of my control until now.

‘I’m very excited to join the NFT community and contribute to the change in the way artists/creators interact with their fan base. 

‘It feels great to be part of something new and innovative. 

‘A large part of my own story is about breaking the rules and questioning status quo.

‘In this new chapter of my journey I’m hoping to use my voice for a positive (and legal) cause,’ she said.

Anna’s ICE case is still pending but she doesn’t believe she should be permanently excluded from America. 

In either case, it’s doubtful she’ll go back to her native Russia.

Recently, the scam artist hosted an art exhibition at New York City’s trendy Public hotel to show off some of her prison work.

Unsurprisingly, the person footing the bill says they still haven’t been paid for it.

Julia Morrison, an L.A.-based NFT artist, told The New York Post afterwards that she put ‘around $8,000’ on her credit card to pay for the soiree. 

Alfredo Martinez, the co-host, told the Post that the event was still in the ‘money spending’ stage and not the repaying the debtors stage.
