Woman arrested for running ‘illegal’ business claiming to fix customer’s credit problems, PCT. 4 says
HARRIS COUNTY – A lowly woman was arrested Sunday for her alleged involvement in a $3,300,000 fundraising scheme conducted through her credit repair business, Harris 4 County officials said.
Court documents indicate that the owner of the business, Roekeicha Lashay Brisby, 29, was involved in the scheme which began around November 2020 and lasted until March 2022.
The filing says Brisby used “fifty or more identifying features”, primarily the names, dates of birth, social security numbers and IDs of the victims involved.
Documents also say Brisby filed around 133 false reports of lost or stolen credit cards, while seeking to clear around $1,400,000 in customer debt on behalf of 74 people.
After a lengthy investigation within the firm, deputies found reports that the Brisby-based firm is ‘repairing people’s credit by illegal means’.
