The fraud/embezzlment case my uncle initiated is finally moving forward, with an indictment finally handed down last week.
On Wednesday, South Carolina U.S. Attorney Reginald I. Lloyd announced that a federal grand Jury in Charleston had returned a four-count indictment against Lillian Pair of Summerville, oncharges of wire fraud.
The indictment alleges that from February 2005 through March 2006, Pair, 41, made a series of fraudulent representations to induce investors to invest money in her company, Low Country Concrete, and then used the investors’ money for personal gain. The indictment alleges that the investors’ money was wired in interstate commerce from New Jersey to Charleston.
Pair faces a maximum penalty of $250,000 and/or 20 years in prison.
The case was investigated by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Will she get probation?
I wonder how much money is she suppose to have beat the investors out of? I happened to see your blog and saw summerville. I used to know some folks from there about ten years ago. Four counts!! Sounds serious.
I hope they hand it to her. She deserves all that is due to come her way. Fingers are crossed in your uncles favor!!!!!
what was the outcome?
I haven’t had any recent updates. Once I do I will post them here.
Your uncle needs to investigate her with a fine tooth comb. My son knows her oldest son – they were friends in middle school last year. I believe both her children receive free lunches and I’ve heard that she is on medicaid. Not only is she cheating these investors out of money but she is cheating us as taxpayers!!!!
She is going before a Federal Judge on March 15,2007 and I believe closure is rapidly approaching. I firmly believe that the mountians of evidence will cause her to plead guilty and get the most reduced sentence possible. I have no doubt she will go to jail but, I doubt the stolen money will be recovered. In my opinion, people like Lillian Pair are cowards who cannot work hard to provide for their families. Furthermore, there isn’t a penalty that is stiff enough to right the wrongs she has done but, atleast she will be punished to some extent. Stay tuned for more news on March 16th or 17th.
Progress has been made but we have been advised not to disclose any of the new infomation we have recieved. Please check in next month to see if any information has been disclosed.
Any new updates? I would be very interested in what happens to her. People like that should not get by without punishment.bO
I don’t want to give my name but I knew her well and a few other people also. She did stay owning money to a lot of us. But i do want to make one thing clear and I am not sure how true this is but she made a comment to some of us that she had put a lot of money away and no one would ever know where she had hidden this money.
At first she made the statement that it was about five hundred thousand and then changed it to millions and i don’t know how true this is.
She did say that all that money would be put away for her two boys if in case anything ever happened to her, she would make sure her boys would be well taken care of. She even took out Insurance polices.
She would make comments that she had sent money to different banks in different States.
But like i said i don’t know how ture all of this was.
May 24th and her family are moving her out of the house that she had bought and had pay for it cash. All the furniture in the house is all new and paid for also. She bought 3 cars and she paid for college tutions for her neice and nephew.
Anyway i do feel bad for her kids because they did not know what she was doing.
I quess she thought she would never get caught. How wrong she was!!!!
Single mother gets 6 years in prison for investment con
A single mother’s con to get investors for her Summerville concrete business ended Thursday with a six-year sentence in federal prison.
Additionally, Lillian Pair owes more than $1 million in restitution, mainly to a small group of her investors.
The money, which she said was needed to help her business, instead went to a lavish lifestyle of cars, homes and NASCAR events, prosecutors said.
Pair, 42, a petite woman around 5 feet tall, burst into tears at the federal courthouse in Charleston as she apologized in front of U.S. District Judge David Norton.
“Things got way out of hand in a little bit of time,” said Pair, who has two teenage children.
She got 6 years for wire fraud (she plead guilty btw). People never plead guilty unless they have done the crime. I was in the court when she was sentenced. Her fake tears made me sick and apparently they made the judge sick as well because he threw the book at her.
“I don’t think she has any money put away, anywhere”, that is a direct quote from the FBI agent who worked the case. If she did I would be amazed because I think her family had to beg, borrow, and steal to get enough for lawyers.
A basic rule to use when dealing with Lillian is this…whatever she says is a lie, period. If she says she has money…she does not. If she says she paid tuition…she did not. She still tells people she is innocent after pleading guilty to the charges…what an asshole.
