Federal grand jury indicted a Fremont woman for mail fraud, accused of stealing $800,000 from Citigroup clients

The FBI arrested a Fremont woman on suspicion of stealing more than $800,000 from more than 20 Citigroup clients, a United States Department of Justice official said.

Tamara Lanz Moon, 43, was arraigned this week after a federal grand jury indicted her on six counts of mail fraud in connection with the case.  Moon, who worked for Citigroup from 1996 to 2008, operated a scheme in which she allegedly falsified account records, forged client signatures, made unauthorized trades in client accounts and created fake letters of authorization to divert client funds, federal prosecutors said.

Authorities have accused Moon of using the money from the scheme to invest in real estate, remodel her home, pay mortgages on properties she owned, pay her credit card bills, and to lower the line of credit for her home equity.

If convicted of each count, she faces a maximum prison sentence of 120 years, authorities said.
