Apollo Nida

'Real Housewives' Hubby

Charged With Massive ID Theft

breaking news

0125-Apollo-Nida-Phaedra-ParksApollo Nida -- husband of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks -- has been charged with almost unbelievably bold identity theft ... that has now landed him in a federal criminal case.

Nida apparently caught the eye of the Secret Service's Counterfeit and U.S. Treasury Check Squad.

The alleged scheme is sinister.  He supposedly created fake companies which then allowed him to access various databases that had information about people whose identity he flat out stole.

He then allegedly opened fake bank accounts in the names of the victims and then somehow got hold of stolen U.S. Treasury checks, stolen retirement checks from Delta Airline employees and checks that were supposed to go to people who had unclaimed tax money.

Nida has been charged with bank fraud and identity theft and has already appeared in federal court.

And in case you didn't know ... Apollo's wife, Phaedra, is a lawyer.  That should come in handy.

The story was broken by Access Atlanta.

He'll cry in court and say he felt inferior to his wife and his attorney will say he's bipolar and therefore not guilty of his actions.

He did always say he was in Asset Recovery services so he wasn't lying. He's too good looking for jail. Sad when you have a nice life and greed catches up with you

I find it hard to believe that she had absolutely no idea what was going on. Either she was in on it or had a sneaky suspicion, but her head could not have been that far up his arse...

Wth?? Why are people so stupid? Whether Phaedra knew or not divorce after the trial is done. She cant do it before cause then she can be calked to testify. How you meet them is how you lose them. Sorry Phae & kids. Stupid Apollo!

Sucks for Phaedra and the boys. Much prayer. Greed is a demon that affects so many. Act your wage and live within your means.
