      Bay City woman accused of scamming seniors out of millions

      Shawn Dicken was arraigned on 10 charges for allegedly defrauding seniors out of millions of dollars.

      A Bay City woman is facing charges in a ponzi scheme the State Attorney General's office says spans several counties.

      Bill Schuette's office says 39-year-old Shawn Dicken defrauded seniors of millions of dollars while working as a saleswoman for the Diversified Group Advisory Firm.

      Dicken allegedly told clients investments they were making were without risk, completely liquid and had a guaranteed return.

      Dicken was arraigned in Midland on 10 counts including criminal enterprise and embezzlement from a vulnerable adult.

      She's expected back in court later this week for a pre-exam conference.
