'RHOA' Phaedra Parks' husband, Apollo Nida, charged with fraud, theft

"Real Housewives of Atlanta's" Phaedra Parks' husband has been charged with bank fraud and identity theft. RadarOnline published a report Jan. 25 that revealed Apollo Nida "surrendered to federal officials late Thursday." U.S. District Judge Gerrilyn G. Brill agreed to release Nida "on a pretrial bond of $25,000."

Nida is being accused of creating fake companies which allowed him to find people on databases that he could "rip off." Parks' husband also opened fake bank accounts "under those real names and funneled stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts," the report said.

An investigation into Gayla St. Julien raised red flags over Nida's activities. Julien was the one opening bank accounts so fraudulent transactions could be done through stolen identities.

In the affidavit, St. Julien “described herself as Nida’s ‘right hand b****’ in executing the legwork of his fraud schemes.” She apparently made "scraps" compared to what the "RHOA" star was bringing in.

Phaedra Parks' husband allegedly used stolen identities to open a fake auto dealership and apply for auto loans.

As "RHOA" fans know, Nida was in prison before. He was sentenced to five years from 2004 to 2009 for breaking federal racketeering laws "related to auto title fraud."

Nida's court date is scheduled for Feb. 12.
