Four prohibitions (and one pending) among comptroller’s August enforcement actions

A notice of charges for an order of prohibition and four consent orders for prohibition were issued last month by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), according to a release Thursday by the agency.

According to the OCC notice of charges, Eric M. Clevenger, a former teller at PNC Bank, N.A. (Wilmington, Del.), misappropriated nearly $12,000 from his teller drawer and a bank ATM on numerous occasions from September to December 2014. Clevenger was given 20 days from the date of the notice (signed Aug. 26) to respond. The notice says Clevenger signed a statement to the bank (in December 2014) admitting the misappropration.

He had 20 days to respond to the OCC’s notice.

The four consent orders issued name the following:

  • Nodia Harris, former teller at The Huntington National Bank (Columbus, Ohio), who the OCC said from May to August 2015 misappropriated $11,000 in cash while clearing customer cash deposits from the automated teller machines and falsified general ledger tickets to conceal her misconduct;
  • Lori Christine Woodson, former loan officer at The City National Bank and Trust Company (Lawton, Okla.), who the agency said from October 2013 to June 2016 submitted false or misleading information related to eight loans totaling $7,081,446 from four financial institutions, including the bank, and caused those institutions to lose the total value of the loans (for which she agreed to pay full restitution);
  • Teanna Smith, former phone banker for Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (Sioux Falls, S.D.), who is said to have provided bank customers’ credit card numbers to unauthorized individuals, after which unauthorized charges were charged to those customers’ credit cards, causing the bank a loss of about $7,975; and
  • Adrian Hawkins, former branch associate at Capital One, National Association (McLean, Va.), who is said from Jan. 10 to March 1, 2018, to have assigned temporary debit cards to two customers’ accounts without the customers’ permission, then used the cards to withdraw a total of $22,606.50 at ATMs.

In other notices, the OCC said it terminated enforcement actions against Interamerican Bank, Federal Savings Bank (Miami, Fla.); The First National Bank of Lacon (Lacon, Ill.); Community National Bank in Monmouth (Monmouth, Ill.); and Homestead Savings Bank (Albion, Mich.).
