BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck woman is accused of obtaining and using credit cards in someone else's name.

Amy Mahler is charged in federal court with five counts, including mail fraud and identity theft.

She's scheduled to make her first court appearance on June 24.

Prosecutors say Mahler received two unauthorized credit cards from Bank of America and cost the bank at least $25,000.

The scheme allegedly started in July 2007 and continued through November 2008.
