Marlo Hampton from Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta is making a shocking allegation - that fellow Housewife Eva Pigford is a scammer. Marlo is claiming that Eva is engaged in an illegal identity theft scheme to get her car.

Eva Pigford was married a few months ago to former federal prosecutor - attorney Michael Sterling. That makes Marlo's accusations all the more EXPLOSIVE.

On last night's episode of Bravo's hit show The Real Housewives of Atlanta -  Eva's luxurious wedding was showcased. The event cost approximately $500,000, and Eva was responsible for paying for half the wedding.

Maybe she shouldn't have gone so lavish, because just a few days after the wedding Eva began to have financial problems, according to one of her bridesmaids.

Eva's pal told Marlo that Eva and Michael were forced to leave her rented Atlanta Townhouse. And Marlo is claiming that Eva and her new husband were evicted from the premises.

Here's what she said:

I'm hearing that [Eva and her husband] are having a problem with where they're living. They're renting and they have to get out ASAP.

Then Marlo made the more explosive claim - that Eva was engaged in an illegal identity theft scheme,

Her car has a CPA or CPN number. That's some crooked way to get a car.

Fo those of you unfamiliar with CPN fraud, here's how a consumer protection website explains it:

CPN schemes are promoted by companies claiming that they can clean up credit and/or guarantee a credit score of 700-800 in a short period of time.

These companies find random SSNs, which are run through public databases to determine their status. If they’re clean— validated as an active SSN that is not on file with credit bureaus—they are offered for sale.

The companies are very careful not to call these “social security numbers.” They use several names, all with an acronym of CPN, including “credit profile number,” “credit privacy number” or “credit protection number.” But they are really stolen SSNs sold to consumers who are desperate to escape bad credit.

CPN schemes are illegal. Those who purchase a CPN and use it to establish a clean credit file are committing several crimes, including identity theft and making false statements on a loan or credit application.
