Exclusive Documents: Reality Star Apollo Nida Charged with Bank Fraud and other Crimes

| January 25, 2014 | 1 Comment


Celebrity blogger Sandrarose.com broke the story. Back in 2008, US Treasury agents were alerted to a series of crimes involving the making of fraudulent checks and fake identification cards.

On Thursday, Apollo Nida surrendered to US Marshals and was placed under arrest before he was brought in front of U.S. District Judge Gerrilyn G. Brill.

According to federal documents obtained by Hiphopenquirer.com, US Attorney Sally Yates office filed a formal Indictment that essentially outlined how the crimes were committed.

In the documents, the government alleges that current federal detainee Gayla O’Neil Saint Julien did willingly, knowingly and unlawfully combine, conspire, and confederate, agree to have a tacit understanding with A.E.N. (Apollo E. Nida) and other persons, both known and unknown to commit certain offenses against the United States including the following:

Setup fraudulent bank accounts at various financial institutions that included; Bank of America, Suntrust, Regions Bank, PNC Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, Georgia’s Own Credit Union, Chase Bank and several others. In doing so, defendant Julien would deposit illegally obtained checks at the direction of defendant Apollo Nida.

The two conspired along with others to incorporate Georgia shell companies purporting to be collection agencies. By doing this, they would have the ability to gain unlimited access to credit files of Equifax, LexisNexis and Microbuilt databases that contained personal identifiers of individuals. In addition, defendants would rent addresses from various UPS stores around Atlanta and throughout the state in order to receive illegally obtained checks.

As their plot became more sophisticated, they would establish other bogus shell companies purporting to be car dealerships and auto brokers which was used to apply for and receive auto loans according to the indictment.

What makes this case even more troubling for Nida and possibly attorney Phaedra Parks is the fact that author Angela Stanton revealed in her book Lies of a Real Housewife that she was a part of an elaborate car theft ring that was masterminded by Parks.

In an excerpt from the book “Lies of a Real Housewife” author Angela Stanton stated on page 68:

“ One sunny morning at 8:47 a.m. Phaedra called me to her office. I had no idea what she had planned for me. I guess this was all part of her gimmick so that I would never be able to figure her out.

When I walked through her office door, Phae had specific instructions for me. “Take your Maryland drivers license along with this social security printout, and go to the Bank of America, downtown Branch on Peachtree Street and open a bank account.” Phae said.”

She later stated that Apollo gave her a $27,000.00 check and told her to deposit in the phony Bank of America account and wait for the check to clear. Stanton’s account in her book has similar earmarks of what is alleged to have occurred in federal indictment.

The fact that her account of what occurred several years ago is strangely similar might create a problem for Phaedra Parks in her upcoming civil trial in Gwinnett County Georgia where she is suing Angela Stanton for slander and defamation.

It must be noted that both Gayla O’Neil Saint Julien and Apollo E. Nida are presumed innocent until proven guilty by a jury of their peers however our sources have revealed that Julien might be negotiating a plea deal with the government.

U.S. Assistant Attorneys Alana R. Black and Gale McKenzie are prosecuting the criminal case.
