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.
Several of the victims who had police reports filed on their behalf told deputies that they never made those reports or authorized anyone to make them on their behalf.
Brisby is believed to have obtained the original police report from an identity theft victim who filed a police report with Precinct 4, after her information was stolen in October 2019.
