It’s coming from inside the house.

It looks like somebody started their own personal reserve fund.

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.

    The one thing about money is if you have it someone is always trying to take it.

    Being a development officer for 35+ years, you’d have to be a special kind of stupid if you thought you could get away with this.

      Running a Honeydripper establishment might’ve been less than respectful, but at least it was honest work. Tell Rachel at Card Services that Russ says “Hey!”

            Naw, across the street at Arcco. Archmartyr was their progeny. Despised by Dawg fans, rejected by her Auburn scum mom Rachel, she resorted to being a foil for the Tide. Now available at Waffle House Eastside Athens dumpster 24/7/365.

  4. You love this story, don’t you? Nothing negative about the football program, per se. But a great opportunity to zing the money side of the operation and that it was an inside job adds plenty of sizzle to the steak.

    As a great actor once said, “this has all the elements of a classic Nicholas Cage movie – number one, I heard the actors were paid…”

  5. Executive Associate Director. Don’t think I’ve ever heard that exact combo before.

    I’ve heard of an Executive Director. I’ve heard of an Associate Director…. not sure I’ve ever heard of an Executive Associate Director.

    I know he is working in Jacksonville, but I would check McDick’s bank account. The parsimonious ones are who you need to keep an eye on.

    • Hairy, I’d echo your sentiment if I only knew what parsimonious meant…the CHEAP sobs at the Cobb County public schools back in the day only supplied the school library with an encyclopedia set up to the letter M…and they were dated 1959 so it didn’t even include the moon landing…but the Marshall Plan was fairly current then.

  11. After years of responding to calls from the kids fundraising for the Terry College of Business, I thought this last donation was odd when I made the check out to “Ralph” but she said it was a new acronym and sounded cute over the phone.
