Sources said she was scheduled to be deported to Germany on March 26, the day after she handed herself in.

Sorokin, however, didn’t leave the country on that day.

It is unclear if she delayed the deportation by legally challenging it. It also isn’t clear 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 out of $275,000 in Manhattan in 2016 and 2017 while posing as Anna Delvey, the fictitious heiress to a multi-billion dollar German fortune. 

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

She pretended to be the daughter of a mysterious oil baron in Europe and lived an exorbitantly expensive lifestyle in Manhattan without ever actually paying for it.

It came crashing down in 2017 after she took a friend, a Vanity Fair photo editor, to Marrakesh with her, racked up thousands in charges at hotels and then gave the photo editor the $62,000 bill, promising to pay her back. 

Since being released from prison on February 11, she had a German camera crew follow her every move and kept up a social media presences on Instagram

Since being released from prison on February 11, she had a German camera crew follow her every move and kept up a social media presences on Instagram. 

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 being released, she said prison was a ‘pointless’ ‘waste of time’, she called the prosecution against her an ‘insult to her intelligence’ and boasted that guards treated her like a ‘celebrity’. 

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

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

‘I think regret is just a useless feeling because I clearly cannot 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 being this 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 was never planning on defrauding anyone.’
