The Dickinson Press reports that 38-year-old Cynthia Ell faces 10 counts of felony theft by deception.

Authorities allege that Ell placed misleading ads in two newspapers last year after opening a medical benefit account at a bank, and ended up swindling a Fairfield man out of about $595,000. She allegedly bought or helped buy seven vehicles under her and her children's names.

A trial date was not immediately set.
