It was reported yesterday that Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida was arrested on Thursday for bank fraud and identity theft and now more details regarding the arrest are coming to light.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Nida was brought down because the woman he allegedly hired to do most of his dirty work gave him up to the authorities.

The AJC writes:

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.

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.


It was also discovered that Apollo is tied to two fake debt collection businesses and he allegedly used the businesses to steal personal information from numerous individuals. The site also says the fake debt collection businesses would utilize the services of LexisNexis and Equifax databases to steal identities.

His alleged partner Gayla St. Julien was arrested on September 11, 2013 by the Secret Service. She told authorities that it was actually Apollo who orchestrated most of the alleged fraudulent schemes.

Julien even says she’s been working with Apollo since 2009, the same year he and Phaedra tied the knot.

Apparently she decided to give up Apollo to the authorities because she says she was allegedly his “right hand b*tch” and he gave her nothing but “scraps” from their schemes.

According to Julien, Apollo would steal identities and she would then go to various banks and open up accounts using the names of the victims. Then she allegedly deposited fraudulent auto loan checks, stolen retirement checks issued to Delta Airlines employees and stolen US Treasury checks, as well as checks that were issued to individuals who were owed unclaimed property from various state and government agencies.

As far as the evidence is concerned, according to the AJC, there’s actual audio of Apollo discussing the alleged schemes with Julien via recorded phone conversations.

Nida served time from 2004 to 2009 for breaking racketeering laws related to auto title fraud.

The rep for Apollo and Phaedra tells the AJC they will not comment on the situation because they don’t comment on the “personal lives” of their clients, meanwhile Apollo is denying he was arrested on his Twitter account.

    He’s really a dumb a-s. LOL at him thinking the Feds wouldn’t figure out what he was doing when he just finished serving time a few years ago for basically doing the same thing.

    It was really selfish of him to do this when he knows he has a wife and two kids at home. SMH.

      Actually it is Phedra’s stupidity that now her two sons might possibly not have their father around for most of their birthdays . Why have kids with a convicted felon especially one who has so much ego like he does. Dirt is written all over this guy the minute you look at him. He has no morals.

    I’m starting to think he likes being in prison. There didn’t appear to be any reason for him to do this. They have RHOA money and their little legal side hustles bringing money in. I just don’t get it.

    I don’t know who he is, I’ve never watched the show but geez is this guy stupid. Identity theft is serious business. If he did it, he needs to be in jail for a long time.
