SOUTHEASTERN FEDERAL SAVINGS & LOANS
This case study presents a fraud perpetrated by a mortgage counselor at a branch office of Southeastern Federal Savings & Loans (Southeastern) that resulted in Southeastern losing $110,000 in cash outright and $93,149 in staff time investigating the fraud. The senior management of Southeastern, the FBI, and the firm’s attorneys incurred additional costs.
This fraud occurred because established policies and procedures were not followed and that additional controls needed to be implemented.
Description of the Fraud and the Parties
Jane Davenport, the perpetrator of the fraud, was initially hired as a teller, became a savings counselor, and lastly, a mortgage counselor. In her five years of employment at Southeastern, fellow employees and customers trusted her. Ms. Davenport violated their trust by stealing from customers’ accounts. Ms. Davenport started the fraud when she took money from an older couple’s two accounts by forging signatures on withdrawal slips. She repaid the money to the accounts by taking money from other customers’ accounts in a classic lapping scheme.
The following year, Ms. Davenport targeted a customer, Ms. Sampson, who had seventeen accounts with Southeastern. Ms. Sampson was a very busy lady, her accounts were very disorganized, and her signature varied considerably. Ms. Davenport and Ms. Sampson developed a trusting relationship. For instance, Ms. Sampson would leave signed blank withdrawal tickets and/or call Ms. Davenport in order to transfer money among accounts. Based on this trust, Ms. Davenport closed out three certificates of deposits, taking penalties on two of them and placing the money into her personal account. Ms. Sampson had two checking accounts with substantial activity and transferred much money between them. Ms. Sampson made second mortgages to people and earned an excellent return on her loans. Ms. Davenport processed a change of address for the checking accounts, so that the statements were mailed to her. She would make a copy of the statements and eliminate the fraudulent transactions. She inserted the altered balances and calculated the correct interest, typed the correct address, and mailed the altered statement to Ms. Sampson so that she would not detect the fraudulent transactions. Ms. Sampson suffered a total loss of $45,168.67; all of which were reimbursed by Southeastern.
Ms. Davenport raided other customers’ accounts. One customer suffered a loss of $4,072.09 when Ms. Davenport diverted a check payable to the customers to her own account. Another customer lost $30,884.62 when Ms. Davenport prematurely closed the customer’s certificate of deposit and fraudulently withdrew money from the customer’s account. Four additional customers lost $18,134.62, $10,707.00, $1,000.00, and $151.97 respectively.
The fraud was discovered after three years when Ms. Sampson finally complained to the branch manager about problems in her accounts. The branch manager immediately contacted the security manager and Ms. Davenport was questioned. Eventually, Ms. Davenport signed a confession stating that she had stolen Ms. Sampson’s money to help her mother with financial problems. At that time, the Internal Audit Department was asked to investigate the fraud and the record center began the enormous task of gathering the documents for the investigation.
Evidence and Work Papers
Internal audit investigation had the following objectives:
Determine the customers and the amount lost by each to allow Southeast to reimburse customers’ losses.
Identify violations of existing policies and procedures and make recommendations for additional controls that could prevent future frauds from occurring.
Supply the FBI with evidence in the case for them to conduct their own investigation, especially in the cases not considered large enough by FBI standards.
Internal auditors assembled copies of withdrawal tickets, deposit tickets, signature cards, and checks, and placed them in a file for each customer’s accounts. For each account, the internal auditor matched withdrawals against the copies of the signature cards in order to determine if the withdrawal was a forgery. When there was a reference to another account, the internal auditors requested from the Record Center information from the other account. Among many irregularities, it was discovered that Ms. Davenport had signed her own name on withdrawal tickets for other persons’ accounts.
A summary worksheet was prepared for each account indicating the transactions not performed by the customer or those that appeared questionable. In many accounts, it was simple to determine if the transactions were legitimate or not, but in some accounts, such as Ms. Sampson’s, it was impossible to make any determination due to the discrepancies in the signatures on signature cards and the large activity of their checking accounts.
The FBI and Internal Auditors Interview Ms. Sampson
In order to resolve the above problem, the security manager arranged to meet with Ms. Sampson, the internal auditors and the FBI, to determine which transactions were made by her. The volume of transactions was so large that follow-up meetings were scheduled between Ms. Sampson and the internal auditors. During the follow-up meetings, Ms. Sampson was shown copies of the transactions from her various accounts and she was asked to identify whether she had actually performed them. A certain level of confidence was established from the information supplied by Ms. Sampson. As a final verification, the internal auditors compared the transactions in their worksheets to Ms. Sampson’s check register. The internal auditors prepared a detailed and complete list of fraudulent withdrawals. Ms. Sampson’s accountant verified the accuracy of the loss as presented on the Internal Auditor’s spreadsheet.
The Conclusion of the Case
The FBI requested the internal auditor’s spreadsheets documenting the total loss suffered by Southeastern customers. The FBI and U.S. Attorneys used the worksheets to prosecute Ms. Davenport. The spreadsheets listed 241 fraudulent transactions totaling a $465,303.58. Ms. Davenport pleaded guilty, was convicted, and sentenced to five years probation, one month in jail, and no restitution.

Project 1 Guidance
Posted Sep 1, 2021 4:30 PM
Over the course of the remaining weeks, we will explore intensively Fayol’s four pillars of management: Planning, Organizing, Leading and Control — POLC through four project assignments discussions.
The first of four projects is due on Tuesday, September 7 by 11:59 p.m. Late Assignments are subject to the course policies as stated in syllabus.
Project 1 focuses on the Planning function, the first pillar in Fayol’s POLC framework. Students are expected to apply the knowledge gained from the course material on Planning to the case scenario to determine the company’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats by performing a SWOT Analysis.
For this paper:
Students must read the course material on Planning.
Students must read the instructions found in this week’s content.
Students must read the case scenario found in the instructions for the project.
Students must write a paper that is in Word or RTF, double spaced, and 5 – 6 pages in length, excluding the title page and reference page. Use 12 point font.
Create an APA compliant title page that provides the paper’s title, date, name, course number, section number, and instructor’s name.
To ensure all elements are addressed and to maximize evaluation scores:
Students should read and line-up/integrate the project directions with the grading rubric when writing the paper.
Students should follow all directions and requirements including addressing all questions and prompts, adhering to APA guidelines for this course, proofing work for typos, grammar, and clarity.
Integration of Directions and Rubric
The Directions state the purpose of the assignment is to introduce you to the planning process and to complete a SWOT analysis to determine a company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Using the information gathered to complete the SWOT, you will begin to build a Strategic Plan identifying and discussing the company’s goals and objectives. By completing this assignment you will learn how to employ effective planning processes to develop strategies, goals, and objectives to enhance organizational performance and sustainability
Students are to read the Case Scenario, which provides context for this analysis. As a new hire at Silver Airways, your manager has asked you to assist with building a Strategic Plan by conducting a SWOT analysis and developing the goals and objectives for a strategic plan. The strategic plan is necessitated by Silver Airways’ CEO requesting an assessment of the airline’s ability to become a “major U.S. airline” and the subsequent steps it needs to take to make that happen.
Using the course material (weeks 1 – 3) and provided research on Silver Airways and its acquisition of Seaborne Airlines, you will:
Conduct a SWOT analysis on the current state of the airline to determine its Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.
Based on your SWOT table, you will then develop and explain your goals and their related objectives.
Your analysis, SWOT table, goals, and objectives must be supported by a logical and well-reasoned evaluation of the facts ascertained from the course materials and links provided.
The Rubric specifies how the project will be evaluated against the criteria. Note the minimum requirement receives a grade equivalent to a C. Correctly provided additional components increase the grade value. Review the grading rubric chart. Read what is listed under each criteria and across the row for how each criteria will be evaluated. The criteria is stated as:

A Word about Plagiarism and Turnitin:
All members of the University community must maintain the highest level of integrity across the academic experience. For students, intellectually honest academic work represents independent analysis, acknowledges all sources of information that contribute to the ideas being explored, and ensures the ability to engage in life and work authentically.
This course uses Turnitin, a software tool embedded in the online classroom to support the development and assessment of academic writing, including ensuring the authenticity of student work through a Similarity Report that highlights any matching areas in your paper found in another submitted paper in the Turnitin repository using a range from 0% to 100%.
The use of Turnitin in this class is different than how it may have been used in your other classes in that there is no need to create a separate account. You only need to submit your assignment within the classroom. Shortly after you submit your assignment you will receive helpful feedback to improve your writing from within the Turnitin software tool.
Turnitin is already populated in the assignment folder. You can submit your paper to Turnitin multiple times before the assignment due date. Once you submit your assignment to the Assignment folder, your paper will be submitted automatically to Turnitin generating a Similarity Report. When a Similarity Report is available for viewing, a similarity score percentage will be made available that can be accessed from the Assignment folder by selecting the Submitted link located under “Completion Status” or by clicking the View History button. NOTE: It may take a few moments for the report to be available. Remember that you will not use your account at Turnitin.com for this course; the tool is already embedded in assignment folders. Students do not have to submit the assignment separately to Turnitin. If students have questions, they should be directed to
To learn more about Turnitin, the feedback it provides, and your options regarding the inclusion of your work in the Turnitin database, visit University guides for Turnitin at sites.umgc.edu/library/libresources/turnitin.cfm and https://sites.umgc.edu/library/libresources/turnitin.cfm#studentcopyright.[supanova_question]
