Scamming Women

CHICAGO (AP) -- A Chicago man who's accused of scamming women in Illinois and eight other states out of more than one million dollars has pleaded not guilty to check fraud.

Forty-two-year-old Hillard Jay Quint is charged with identity theft and four counts of deceptive practice.

Authorities allege he cashed 16-thousand dollars in checks written under the alias Matt Goldstein.

The disbarred lawyer was arrested in February.

Police say Quint dated at least eight women in Chicago and scammed three of them out of 24-thousand dollars. Authorities say he posed as a rich C-E-O from California to women he met online.

A police spokeswoman says authorities are still investigating the alleged fraud and more charges are possible.
