HARRIS COUNTY – A Humble woman was arrested for her alleged involvement in a $3,300,000 finance scheme conducted through her credit repair business, Harris County Precinct 4 officials said.
Court documents state the business’s owner, 29-year-old Roekeicha Lashay Brisby, was involved in the scheme which began around Nov. 2020 and lasted until March 2022. Herman said she was arrested on Friday without incident.
The record states Brisby used “fifty or more items of identifying information,” mainly the names, dates of birth, social security numbers, and ID’s, of the victims involved.
Documents also state Brisby filed around 133 false reports that made it appear it came from Precinct 4 Constable’s Office about the loss or theft of credit cards, while seeking to erase about $1,400,000 in client debt on behalf of 74 people.
After a lengthy investigation inside of the business, deputies found information indicating that Brisby’s business “would fix people’s credit through illegal means.”
Photos taken by investigators show a banner from Rose Credit Repair that claims to help customers “raise their credit score by 50-100 points,” and “use the Law to remove common errors” such as late payments, bankruptcies, and settlements.
The business also claimed that customers would see results “in 35 days or less.”
Brisby has been charged with felony Forgery of a Government instrument in this case. She is expected in court on Monday, July 11.
“One of these institutions actually came to us and that’s how we got involved,” he said. “Once we started looking at the case reports, we noticed that the case numbers would not match our current system.”
Some of the employees Brisby had previosly worked with are also expected to be charged, according to Constable Herman.
Both the Harris County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI are working with Precinct 4 on the investigation. Herman added that additional charges for Brisby may be forthcoming.
Herman said he is asking anyone who has previously done any business with Brisby is urged to come forward and contact Pct. 4.
After additional investigation, KPRC 2 learned that this is not Brisby’s first arrest.
Back in 2019, Brisby was arrested and charged with injury to a child after authorities say she and her boyfriend placed her then 7-year-old son in a scalding hot shower after the child reportedly misbehaved at school.
Her boyfriend at the time, Mark Terrell, was accused of forcing the child to stand in a shower as he sprayed him with the hot water, resulting in burns on his head, face, neck and chest.
She was able to post a $125,000 bond and is expected back in court for that charge on Oct. 3, 2022.
