A Florida woman who flaunted her lavish lifestyle and amassed 34,000 followers on Instagram has been formally charged for stealing roughly $100,000 in COVID-19 relief funding.
According to NBC Boston, Danielle Miller stole the personal information of two Massachusetts residents to then apply and obtain a COVID-19 relief loan.
She then took the money and rented a private jet to fly to California and stay in a number of five-star hotels.
Officials say Miller was able to get the information through the person’s DMV profile. She is then accused of opening a bank account in their name and applying for the federal loan.
Miller then went on the expensive trip and took photos of herself at the different luxury hotels to help promote her brand.
Miller may face additional charges from other identity theft cases. Officials are trying to link her to 10 other false applications totaling $900,000.
If convicted, Miller faces up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000.
