A woman from Humble, Texas, was recently arrested by local police for using dubious police reports to get items removed from consumer credit reports.
According to KHOU 11, Roekeicha Brisby is accused of fixing people’s credit through illegal means between November 2020 and March 2022. She’s charged with forgery and fraudulent use of identifying information, which are both felonies.
According to KHOU “Court documents show that Brisby sent Ally Financial altered police reports from Precinct 4 with fake case numbers.
The false reports contained information about loss and stolen credit cards seeking to erase approximately $980,000 of debt on behalf of 27 people, documents show.
A total of 133 fictitious reports were submitted to several financial institutions, including Discover Bank, First Credit Union and Credit Central. Herman says there’s also evidence she used falsified reports from other agencies as well.
The documents show another institution received 74 fictitious police reports from Rose Credit Services pretending to originate from Precinct 4, seeking to erase about $1.4 million in debt for 74 clients, claiming the debt occurred from criminal activity.”
Valerie Cobio is one of Brisby’s alleged victims.
“She was always posting everywhere on social media, Instagram, Tik Tok on how well she was doing with people’s numbers, and I wasn’t one of them,” Cobio said.
She said she paid Brisby hundreds of dollars and gave her personal documents, including her police report from Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office on her own identity theft. Investigators said Brisby then copy and pasted the original police report to duplicate it 133 times.
