We EXCLUSIVELY received information from a source who claims, Apollo’s bank and identity fraud scam was a large-scale scheme, concocted from within the prison by a gang of inmates. The scam involved several prisons across the US. This tea ties into his parole officer(s) aiding and abetting parolees to make an easy transition (with the scam) from prison to the streets. This explains how Apollo paroled from prison in 2009 and started this fraud scam within the same year of his release from prison.
Apollo Nida was convicted of conspiracy to commit mail, wire, and bank fraud. Judge Charles Pannell, went easy on Apollo only sentencing him to 8 years in prison with 5 years supervised release.
