As a result of the scheme, Whitehead and co-conspirator Christopher Johnson received at least 144 bank deposits from governmental agencies totaling approximately $2,321,058.95 which was reasonably foreseeable to Whitehead. The scheme involved between 50 and 250 business victims.

In addition, on June 28, July 16 and August 10, 2010, Whitehead submitted duplicate charges to a government credit card that the Department of Homeland Security had provided to her to pay for goods provided pursuant to a government contract. The resulting loss to the federal government was $39,983.16.
