Instagram influencer ‘claimed £70k in Covid cash to pay for private jet flights’

An influencer known for flaunting her luxury lifestyle on social media has been accused of obtaining a pandemic relief loan to fund her first class jet-setting.

Instagram model Danielle Miller, 31, allegedly used the information of another woman to access a Covid relief fund meant for small businesses.

Authorities claim the brown haired beauty used her victim's personal information to create a bank account through the state Registry of Motor Vehicles.

She then used the same information to apply for a federally-funded Economic Injury Disaster loan, the US Attorney’s office for the District of Massachusetts claims.

Miller is said to have had over $100,000 (£70, 921) in federal money deposited into her bank account, with some of that cash spent on private flights from Florida to California.

Prosecutors claim evidence of the model's alleged fraud is readily available on her Instagram account, where she regularly posted pictures of her apparent wealth.

CBS Miami reported police also found Miller applied for over $900,000 in other business loans, using the information of other victims via the RMV

Detectives say it is not yet clear how Miller obtained access to confidential information on the RMV.
