Slipping one more teeny UPDATE up here: While Phaedra and the kids have been in bed for hours. Apollo is hitting a Waffle House at 2:15 am after “hitting it hard” at “the gym.” My interpretation of that is that Phaedra has changed the locks and he will be out fucking his whores for the next 18 days. I am dying to know when she threw him out. My guess is 9/13/13 read on for the reason….
In case you are just tuning in, I’ve spent the last 6 hours or so trying to get to the bottom of the story of Apollo Nida being arrested for Bank Fraud and Aggravated Identity Theft that Sandra Rose broke late this afternoon. (NICE WORK SANDRA ROSE! ) . Just as I am heading to bed for the night, I check the AJC site one more time and there is a whole lot of new information. This looks BAD. Like Joe Giudice bad. Lets breakdown what Rodney Ho of the Atlanta Journal Constitution has posted. Let’s just say this will be front page news on the AJC tomorrow.
Apollo is being charged with Embezzlement (10 year max) , Bank Fraud (30 year max), Aggravated Identity Theft (automatically adds 2 years to Bank Fraud sentence) , and Conspiracy (from how I read it, it doubles whatever the sentence for Bank Fraud he is given) . So four charges, and I am still reading the documents.
What follows below is somewhat disjointed. That is because I just read the entire document and went back through and edited things in. I’m going to leave it this way because it make blog theft easier to prove. You’ll be able to figure out the important stuff.
From the AJC with my comments in purple:
Alexandre Herrera, a U.S. Secret Service Agent in the Counterfeit and U.S. Treasury Check Squad, in a written affidavit, charged that Nida created fake companies, enabling him to access databases to find individuals to rip off. He opened fake bank accounts under those real names and funneled stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts.
Wow. Just wow. How stupid is he? And how on earth is it possible that Phaedra does not know about this? Where did she think the money was coming from? Or was he hiding it from her with plans to run off with one of the side pieces he allegedly has?
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.
THREE MILLION DOLLARS? Seriously? According the full documents, this all began when ole Gayla opened four large accounts at a JP Morgan Chase bank with two different identities. He contacted Agent Herrera and discovered she had done the same thing at over FORTY other banks. The of two identities she used at Chase one identity had $750.000 in two accounts and the other had $600,000 in two accounts. I presume for FDIC insurance the accounts were split.
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.
Wasn’t debt collection the job that Phaedra used to claim that Apollo had?
Here is the Lexis Nexis info from the documents.
HE GOT OUT OF JAIL IN 2009 and has been doing this since the moment he got out of prison!!!!!!!!!!! SO SHADY! Phaedra HAS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS! He has been doing this the entire five years they have been “together.” I also now believe every trifilin’ ho who has been saying that she was screwing him. I also believe everything Angela Stanton ever said.
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.
Here is the LexisNexis info from the documents. By the time they got the second account with Lexis Nexis the Feds were already on to them:
Before granting access to its databases to a potential customer, LexisNexis has a contractor verify certain information about the customers. At least some of these verifications involve an office inspection and personal interview. The undercover operation conducted by the GOCP involved a state law enforcement officer standing in for the LexisNexis contractor to perform the inspection and interview.
27. Your affiant reviewed the LexisNexis and Equifax database inquiries made by Onyx Collections & Locators that were obtained by Inv. Mohr and SA Spivey early on in their investigation. Many ofthe stolen identities utilized by ST JULIEN to open bank accounts and utilized in the scheme to obtain fraudulent auto loan checks that were deposited into the bank accounts were obtained from the LexisNexis and Equifax inquiries illicitly made by Onyx Collections & Locators.
28. LexisNexis is a database that, among other data, contains personal identifying information for. practically any person of record in the U.S. LexisNexis is often used by law enforcement to obtain information to assist their investigations. Equifax is a credit reporting agency that maintains and produces consumer credit history reports of individuals.
So she did all of Apollo’s dirty work. She would pretend to be all the female people I assume. Were there males stolen from as well, or does Apollo just steal from women?
SO MUCH TEA! So, Gayla went to him with a wire on and he talked. He is so fucked. Then they went in and got his laptop and phones! Soooooo fucked.
Let’s review the year 2009: in MAY 2009 Apollo got out of prison and almost immediately set up his next crime scheme. and Gayla became his “right hand bitch” in SEPTEMBER of 2009 and met Apollo in one of the fake debit collection offices where the NexisLexis accounts were available. ST JULIEN said that NIDA arranged her to meet with site visit auditors on at least two separate occasions in order to gain access to LexisNexis and Microbilt, and she said she was successful each time. In NOVEMBER of 2009 Phaedra decides Apollo is what she wants in a husband and father of her children.
The U.S. District Judge Gerrilyn G. Brill released Nida on a pretrial bond of $25,000. A preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 12, 2014.
Apollo was busted on 9/13/13 when he met Gayla in a parking lot to give her some fake IDs and debt cards to prepare for another large deposit on his fake Ferrari company bank account. The Feds arrived with a warrant and took his phone, his laptop, multiple fake IDs for Gayla to use, providing the Feds with an IRON CLAD CASE. He has know he was done since SEPTEMBER! What a lovely holiday season that must have been for Phaedra. I was already posting about the probability they would get divorced in April. Streets were talking. How would Apollo go home to Phaedra on 9/13/13 and explain that his phone and laptop and other items were gone? Did he say they were stolen? Wouldn’t Phaedra tell him to file a police report? When did he come clean? There are THOUSANDS of documents on the laptop that prove him guilty of EVERYTHING. I can’t even begin to list them all here but he is going to prison. FOR SURE. The court document I just read was the request for an arrest warrant. It was sealed until after he was arrested yesterday.
HOW IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS HOLY DID THIS GUY GET A PRETRIAL BOND! He should be in jail NOW for parole violation if nothing else. He must have some good lawyers (not Phaedra). This is just outrageous!!! All of it! He better be damn glad the TV Media is Justin Bieber 24/7 right now. It may save the family SOME embarrassment. My GOD. I think the full documents are in my in box by now. More when I get a chance to read them.
Y’all remember last season when Apollo’s storyline was how he found Jesus and turned his life around? Lawd. There are three options for Phaedra and none of them are good. (1) She didn’t know a thing and is blindsided and devastated. (2) She had her suspicions but was not involved at all and is devastated. (3) She is involved in the whole mess and could go down with him and is devastated.
P.S. Kenya Moore was the first house wife to Retweet the news.
