Adam Miller is a faith-healer who claims to be able to cure cancer of any kind and any stage, spinal injuries, poisoning, and AIDS. In December 2014, a YouTuber, Stephanie Guttormson, called him out (correctly) as a con artist on her YouTube channel, ThinkStephtically:[1]

Adam Miller is a charlatan. He’s a swindler. He’s a snake oil salesman. You risk your lives delaying or forgoing proper medical treatment by going to him for help, and more importantly, for believing his unsubstantiated claims.

After replying with his own rebuttal video which pointed out that Guttormson is transgender and works for the Richard Dawkins Foundation, Miller filed a lawsuit against Guttormson for copyright infringement and defamation. He later dismissed his own lawsuit[2] but has indicated that he is planning to reopen the case in the near future.[3] Guttormson has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to defend herself against these charges.[4]
