Influencers often complain the creating new content every day is way difficult than what one perceives. But it certainly is easier than planning a $100,000 fraud in allegedly obtaining a pandemic relief loan to fund a lavish life. Displaying all types of wrong influences is a Miami, Florida Instagram influencer Danielle Miller who is accused of using the personal information of a Massachusetts resident to fraudulently obtain a federal loan. The influencer in question accessed an Abington resident’s online Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles records and used the personal identifying information to open a bank account in that person’s name. This was followed by applying for a COVID-19 relief loan with the fraudulent credentials. Once she received a $102,000 loan meant to help small businesses during the pandemic. As expected the fun began right away with her using the money for a private flight from Florida to California, and a stay at the luxury hotel Petit Ermitage.

“The charge of wire fraud provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, up to three years of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000,” the US Attorney’s office noted of the Miami Instagram influencer’s alleged fraud. Is this the result of pressure created in the name of content creation?
