University of Georgia police are investigating an alleged act of financial fraud committed within the athletic association’s development office earlier this year.
The police department opened an investigation on Feb. 1 in response to a complaint filed by Ford Williams, UGA’s executive associate director for major gifts. Police suspect an unknown individual committed identity theft and fraud by using counterfeit info to solicit money from UGA donors and directing it into personal accounts. The amount of money involved was not included in the report…
It is believed that the act was committed by someone employed in UGA’s development office, according to a person familiar with the situation.
An inside job! Probably figured B-M would just round up a few Magill Society folks to make up the shortfall.
