A conman is still wanted two years after he was jailed in his absence at Oxford Crown Court.

Simon Levy, 57, is understood to still be on the run after he was handed a four year and four month prison sentence at the end of October 2021.

The second year anniversary of his sentencing was on Monday.

And a spokesman for Thames Valley Police confirmed to the Oxford Mail today (Tuesday, October 31) that Levy is yet to be found. 

In 2021, jurors convicted him of flouting a company director ban by helping a banker set up a posh London chip shop brand Come Fry With Me.

He got to know the woman through her boyfriend, a police officer he met while on day release from prison.

At the time Judge Michael Gledhill KC described Levy, of Charlwood Close in Harrow, as a ‘fraudster and a conman’ – addressing the words to an empty dock, as the defendant had gone on the run months before his trial began.

A part-time cabaret singer and self-proclaimed business expert, Levy’s past involved him chalking up convictions on both sides of the Atlantic, the court was told.

In 2013, he was jailed for three years by an Oxford judge for overseeing a luxury goods business under an alias despite being an undischarged bankrupt.

A serious crime prevention order, which was imposed as part of that sentence, required him to adhere to a number of strict rules, including having to explain to the police any spending of more than £200.

Police raided Levy’s mother’s home in Harrow in 2016, finding a leather Mont Blanc wallet stuffed with bank cards and receipts showing he had bought meals at Mayfair restaurant Burger and Lobster and celeb favourite Harry Morgan in St John’s Wood.

The meals were paid for using credit cards he should not have owned under the terms of his court order.

In autumn 2021, jurors were told that Levy used the alias ‘David Michaels’.

He used the same name to release a ‘Live in London’ cabaret album in 2016, covering classics like Duke Ellington’s ‘Don’t Get Around Much Anymore’.

Judge Gledhill, sentencing the crook in his absence, said of the absent Levy: “This is a man with a string of serious offences of dishonesty. He is a fraudster and a conman. He’s been appearing before the courts as we’ve just heard from 1983.”

In 2021, an officer in the case DC Grahame Lea asked for anyone with information about Levy’s whereabouts to come forward.

“In this case Levy was sentenced in his absence, he is as a result wanted by the court and we would ask anyone who has information as to his whereabouts to please come forward and call Thames Valley Police on 101,” he said.

“He is known to the Harrow area of London and he also uses another name of David Michaels.”
