ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Atlanta police are asking for the public's help in finding a woman accused of fraud.

They say in December 2013, Tanya Monique Peel opened a business account at a JP Morgan Chase Bank in Atlanta. However, police say the business was fake and only created to help steal $123,000 from an investment account with Charles Schwab.

The Charles Schwab account holder claimed her identity was stolen and the suspect used that to move the funds from the victim's account to the fraudulent one allegedly set up by Peel.

Investigators say Peel immediately withdrew all the money from the account.

Peel was last known to live in Raleigh, NC.

Anyone with information about Peel or this case can anonymously call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477), visit their website at www.crimestoppersatlanta.org or text CSA and their tip to CRIMES (274637). There is a reward of up to $2,000 for information in this case.
