“APOLLO MISSED PRISON SEX!”
well apollo nida,
male gold digga hubby to phaedra parks from rhoa,
was arrested on alleged bank fraud and identity theft!
the story broke on sandra rose and spread like wildfire…
According to an affidavit obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Apollo is suspected of creating fake companies, which granted him access to many people’s personal information. He’s accused of using that information to steal their identities, open accounts and rip them off.
“’He opened fake bank accounts under those real names and funneled stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts,” the complaint reportedly reads.
Gayla St. Julian is named as Apollo’s alleged partner in crime. She is accused of going into the banks and pretending to be the individuals whose identities were cloned by Apollo
According to The Daily Mail, Apollo was granted bail on Thursday after appearing in the U.S. District Court.
The AJC reports that Gayla, who “described herself as Nida’s right-hand b!t_h”, recorded her conversations with Apollo in which he explained the schemes.
UPDATE: The agent in February 2012 began investigating alleged criminal activities of Gayla St. Julien, who he said was opening bank accounts under stolen identities to commit bank and check fraud. The investigation ran until September, 2013. At that point, they found 40 bank accounts tied to her. The complaint provided a sampling of bank accounts totaling about $3 million tied to alleged fraudulent activities.
The office also identified two fake debt-collection businesses used to “illicitly obtain personal identifying information of individuals.” The companies used LexisNexis and Equifax database inquiries to steal identities. St. Julien was arrested on Sept. 11, 2013 by the Secret Service. She implicated Nida as the man who orchestrated many of the alleged fraudulent schemes. She had worked with Nida since 2009.
St. Julien “described herself as NIDA’s ‘right hand b****’ in executing the legwork of his fraud schemes,” Herrera wrote. She told him she received “scraps” compared to how much he pocketed.
Nida would allegedly steal real people’s identities and have St. Julien pretend to be them to open bank accounts. She would then deposit fraudulent auto loan checks, stolen U.S. Treasury checks, stolen retirement checks issued to Delta Airlines employees, and checks in the names of real people that were owed unclaimed property from various state and federal government agencies, according to the criminal complaint.
He also opened a fake auto dealership (such as Ferrari Autohaus) and apply for auto loans in the names of stolen identities. After the arrest, the agents had St. Julien tape record conversations with Nida in which he explained many of his schemes. At one point, they obtained a federal search warrant of Nida’s vehicle and seized evidence, including a bank debit card in the name of Ferrari Autohaus Inc., cell phones and a laptop computer.
“single multi-tasking mother raising 2 kids,
while her jailbird husband serves times for scamming people out their money.
as she works to try to survive,
she contemplates if she should visit him or let him rot in jail.
…sounds interesting already.
when apollo was talking all that about “having a job”,
who knew this is what he meant.
i know one thing…
all those who wanted a “donkey booty” or “phine body” better start checking their account balances.
lowkey: i can hear kenya laughing from here.
the good news is he already has a lawyer.
the bad news?
well depending on what else comes out about this,
she may also need to represent herself.
