Houston woman charged with running $3.3 million credit repair program

A Houston woman was arrested Thursday after allegedly running a credit repair program that attempted to defraud millions from financial companies, authorities say.

Humble resident Roekeicha Brisby, 29, is facing a first-degree felony charge for tampering with a government instrument.

The Harris County District 4 Constable’s Office accuses Brigsby of fraudulently erasing credit reports by falsifying records and submitting them to financial institutions, court records show. She reportedly performed the scheme at her business, Rose Credit Repair, from approximately November 21, 2020 to March 2, 2022.

The intention, according to officials, was to suppress credit loans and defraud the banks out of $3.3 million.

“During the search warrant, officer’s investigators observed advertisements for Rose Credit Repair indicating that they use the law to repair credit,” Officer Mark Herman said in a statement. “Obviously, this is not the case as the defendant violated the law in an attempt to defraud financial institutions of a significant sum of money.”

Authorities have recovered documents and several electronic devices that will be used in the investigation, officials said.

Court documents show that a total of 133 bogus reports were submitted to a slew of financial institutions, including Ally Financial, Nevada West Financial, Discover Bank and First Credit Union, among others.

Ally Financial allegedly received altered police reports claiming to be from the Harris County Constable’s office for seven months, according to court documents. The altered reports also allegedly included invalid case numbers and incorrectly formatted words.

The reports also allegedly contain information about lost or stolen credit cards aimed at clearing up to $980,000 in debt on behalf of 27 people, according to court records.

All reports were said to have been sent via a fax number which phone records say belongs to Brisby, according to the records.

Authorities are asking any person or institution that believes they have been defrauded by Brisby and his business to report it to the Harris County Constable’s Office 4 at (281) 376-3472.
