Was knowing how to deal with a sneaky, conniving husband in RHOA’s Phaedra Parks southern bell protocol book? Because if the allegations against Apollo Nida are true, Phaedra has some real drama ahead of her outside of her popular reality show ( on the flip side, the ratings for the next season of RHOA will probably shoot through the roof)! Mrs. Parks is one of my favorite housewives but I can’t say that I’m surprised. I mean, we pretty much knew what the other RHOA husbands did as occupations. Did Apollo’s employment status seem shady to anybody else or was it just me?
According to Access Atlanta, an affiliate with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Apollo has been charged with fraud and identity theft. Access Atlanta reported that Nida and a accomplice by the name of Gayla St. Julien have been bamboozling people since 2009.
As reported by Access Atlanta:
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.
Apparently the feds have been suspicious of Phaedra’s other half (which probably wasn’t a long shot since Apollo married Phaedra fresh out of jail in 2009 for doing something similar to the current charges against him) for quite some time and he’s reportedly stolen millions from the poor saps who’ve fallen prey to identity theft online. SIDEBAR: Readers please pay attention to the websites you visit. Don’t input your personal information to every free credit score site there is. It helps to look for secured sites (which are normally signified by a lock at the bottom of the screen) or a site that says its verified with some sort of online protection. Evidence against Apollo said a “complaint provided a sampling of bank accounts totaling about $3 million tied to alleged fraudulent activities”. Apollo was bringing home stolen bacon. WOW.
Once a thief always a thief? Did Phaedra know what she was getting herself into here? If this footage makes the cut, RHOA season seven will be a must see!
