NCUA Issues Prohibition Notices and Order

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Aug. 30, 2019) – The National Credit Union Administration issued five prohibition notices and one prohibition order in August. These six individuals are prohibited from participating in the affairs of any federally insured financial institution.

  • Karen S. Buxton, a former employee of ADM Credit Union in Decatur, Illinois, was sentenced on two counts of theft.
  • Christy R. Harrison, also known as Christy Wingate and Christy Hyde, a former employee of Altamaha Federal Credit Union in Jesup, Georgia, was sentenced on two counts of forgery.
  • Ginny A. Hughes, a former institution-affiliated party of Changing Seasons Federal Credit Union in Hampden, Maine, agreed and consented to the issuance of a prohibition order and agreed to comply with all of its terms to settle and resolve the NCUA Board’s claims against her.
  • Alan S. Kaufman, the former CEO and institution-affiliated party of Melrose Credit Union in Queens, New York, was charged with several crimes, including conspiracy to commit bribery and bribery, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. After determining that continued service or participation by Kaufman in a credit union’s operations may impair public confidence in federally insured credit unions, the NCUA Board issued a notice prohibiting Kaufman from further participation in the affairs of any credit union.
  • Kimberly Michelle Roberts, a former employee of My Healthcare Federal Credit Union in Gainesville, Florida, pleaded guilty to 12 counts of embezzlement.
  • Doretha Denise Steward, a former employee of Fayetteville Postal Credit Union in Fayetteville, North Carolina, pleaded guilty to two counts of embezzlement.

Prohibition and administrative orders are searchable by name, institution, city, state, and year at the NCUA’s Administrative Orders webpage. The webpage also provides links to the enforcement actions of federal banking agencies against other institutions or their affiliated parties.
