He said the hotel asked him to show the card he used to book his hotel room and when he mentioned that it was his wife at home in Nigeria who booked it, they were paranoid and suspicious.
He said: “Simon Leviev has messed up everywhere o. Tryna check into the hotel in London and they insist I show the card that was used for the reservation. I tell them my wife did it for me and she is in Naija. This made the situation worse. They think I’m stealing. Then to top it off, my own card declines. For the first time in my life, I said the words “Google me” (sic)
