January 1, Flashy Miami “Influencer” Jailed Over Multi-Million Dollar COVID Scam



While many hardworking Americans struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic, Danielle Miller, a Miami “influencer,” was living the high life – at taxpayers’ expense.

Miller, 32, traded her Gucci apparel for prison wear after receiving a five-year federal prison sentence for her involvement in a whopping $1.5 million COVID-19 relief fraud scheme. Her brazen admission earlier this year sealed her fate.

Riding high on a wave of fraudulent pandemic loans aimed at aiding beleaguered Americans, Miller extravagantly flaunted her ill-gotten gains. This self-touted “con artist” was caught driving a Rolls-Royce, jet-setting on private planes, and enjoying a posh life in upscale apartments.

Acting US Attorney Joshua Levy minced no words, stating, “Ms. Miller isn’t an influencer, she is a convicted felon.” He further criticized Miller’s shameless display of riches on social media, which was ironically funded by the honest taxpayer.

Levy added, “Today’s sentencing should make it crystal clear that curating a high-society social media presence on the backs of hardworking taxpayers is a path to prison, not fleeting fame.”

From July 2020 to May 2021, Miller, a Horace Mann School alumna, maliciously misused personal details of over ten innocent citizens and fabricated business names to pilfer federal loans.

Her scam involved using counterfeit driver’s licenses bearing the names of her victims, but with her photo plastered on them. In one particularly audacious episode, she jetted from Florida to California using a Gulfstream private jet, all funded by her deceitful tactics.

Miller’s lack of remorse was evident when she openly declared, “Honestly, I more so consider myself a con artist than anything,” in a February 2022 New York Magazine feature.

Attempting damage control, her attorney, Mitchell C. Ellman, asserted that Miller now feels contrite, stating, “Ms. Miller has accepted responsibility for her actions and has expressed her remorse to the Court, the Government and the victims affected.”

Her sentencing also included the confiscation of her flaunted luxuries like a Rolex watch, a Louis Vuitton handbag, Dior apparel, and Rimowa luggage.

With a once-thriving Instagram account of over 30,000 followers, where she regularly showcased her designer wardrobes from brands like Chanel, Prada, and Gucci, Miller’s posting came to a halt in October 2022.

Interestingly, a post from January of that year displays her donning an ankle monitor, hinting at her impending legal troubles.

It’s noteworthy that this isn’t Miller’s first rendezvous with the law. She was previously handed a five-year state prison sentence in Florida concerning another fraud case just last year.

    5 years in prison is nothing to a con artist. They will do the same kind of cons when they get out. If we don’t get our country back to the punishment fits the crimes, then these things will continue to happen.

    Why was she out conning if she was convicted only last year?
