Lloyds' former head of fraud and security for digital banking has been charged in connection with a £2.46 million fraud.
Jessica Harper is accused of submitting false invoices to claim payments totalling £2,463,750.88, to which she was not entitled, says the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
Andrew Penhale, deputy head, CPS central fraud group, says: "The charge relates to an allegation that between 1 September 2008 and 21 December 2011, Jessica Harper dishonestly and with the intention of making a gain for herself, abused her position as an employee of Lloyds Banking Group".
Harper has been charged with one count of fraud by abuse of position and will appear before Westminster Magistrates Court on 31 May.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Harper has been with Lloyds since 2000 and in her most recent role was "responsible for all new online technology development, delivery, SMS&Email channels, Security & Fraud & Internet operations".
