A Queenstown bank worker has been charged over allegations of a long-running $400,000 fraud in which money was paid into fictitious accounts.

Police said a 29-year-old woman, who previously worked at the town's branch of the ANZ, has been charged with using a computer system for a dishonest purpose and five representative charges of theft by person in a special relationship.

It's alleged the offending, which involved setting up fictitious accounts, occurred between August 2010 to July 2013 and totalled more than $400,000.

The woman is due at Queenstown District Court on April 7.

"No further comment can be made by police as this matter is now before the courts,'' said Detective Matt Jones of Queenstown Police.
