Update: Loren Miller now using alias, “Gene Miller”

According to several sources, Loren and his wife Floy moved left Lexington, SC around the end of Jan.

According to another source, Floy moved to Summerville, South Carolina to live with someone while she tried to find a job.

Gene Miller / Loren Miller’s current (May 2010) whereabouts are unknown.

He reportedly told his former LDS bishop (Miller claims to be an “active Mormon”) that he and wife Floy had split up and he was moving back to Indiana; this seems unlikely, and is thought by our observers to be a cover story “to cover his trail and make it cold.”

The observer concludes, “He’ll pop up again somewhere. Hopefully this website will alert any new possible victims.”

Loren Miller is reportedly using a portion of his middle name, Loren Eugene Miller, and is now going by Gene Miller.

His current former base of operations is now was said to be: [redacted], Lexington, South Carolina.  He is was reportedly working the Aiken, SC and Augusta, GA areas.

We have received email recently which allege the following:

“Instead of conning 2 or 3 people out of thousands of dollars, Loren cheats 200 out of $50 each…   Loren or GENE claims to be an avid horseman and good rider…  Two people [a person in his current area] knows of have ‘died’ because Loren has talked them into suspending their doctor ordered medications and buying his ‘health food products’ to replace it.
“Loren’s sidekick and partner in health scam is a Mary O’Farrell. Their new venture is called: satisfy the cell.  Mary supposedly has a business called “House of Healthy Living” wherein she sells all Loren’s products. Loren peddles lots of water purifying and air purifying machines sometimes selling them for 3-4 times their retail value.  Some of these machines have been purchased and are currently owned by someone else.  Loren ‘borrows’ them and resells them to a new mark.  He also peddles immunocal/immunotec and now juice plus. His specialty though is multi-level-marketing schemes. He ‘steals’ small amounts of money from LOTS of people rather than large amounts of money from a few people. This is done thru obtaining credit card numbers and ordering extra products that are unauthorized.  If or when confronted he states, ‘It was an honest mistake, but the spirit told me you needed that product.’  These amounts are usually about $50-$150. When the police are contacted they pass it off as civil not criminal. Loren continues to skate under the radar.”

We are working to confirm these reports and learn more about Loren “Gene” Miller’s current location and operations.

Loren Miller’s web sites taken down

As of November 12, 2008, it appears that Loren Miller’s web sites have been taken down after this site was posted on the Internet.

It is unclear if he is still operating in the Lexington, South Carolina area, as was believed by many contributors to this site..

Below are links to Google’s archive (“cached”) versions of these web sites. Note that some images or pages may be missing from Google’s archive:

“Miller had a successful ponzi scheme… he just migrates to another part of the country and starts working his scams all over again.”

The following was submitted by Richard Newton:

I was a mortgage broker in the 1990’s in Salt Lake City when I met Loren Miller.  Unbeknown to me Loren had just swindled Sandy Caruso out of a prime property in Harriman, Salt Lake County, Utah.

When Miller contacted me he said that he needed a loan and had the property free and clear.  Everything seemed to check out and so I made the loan.  Miller made payments but the funds came from others that he was in the process of swindling.

Miller had a successful ponzi scheme going here in Northern Utah, for at least a while.

When the law started to close in on him he moved his operation to Central Utah, Richfield.  Miller claimed that he had found a perfect property on which to build a small trailer park.  I financed the purchase of the land but it turned out that Miller had no intention in building a trailer park he just wanted to use it to scam me and others out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I suppose that I was fortunate in that I was somewhat more sophisticated than most of Miller’s victims.  I’ve heard court testimony from an elderly couple that he swindled out of their life’s savings and they wound up with nothing to show for it.

The problem with the legal system is that it punishes ‘white color crime’ very lightly.  Miller should never have been allowed to get out of jail since my understanding is that he’s been incarcerated on several occasions and upon release he just migrates to another part of the country and starts working his scams all over again.
