The criminals targeted 40 stores nationwide.

A California man admitted to a role in a scheme in which more than $800,000 worth of luxury watches were purchased by fraudulent means.

Thung Van Huynh admitted to a count of conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud, PennLive reports.

Huynh and three other people were accused of buying or trying to buy the watches — including Rolex and other brands — in 2013 and 2014.

They targeted more than 40 stores all over the U.S.

“The watches were bought with money obtained by submitting on-line loan applications with various financial institutions using the fake identification documents,” PennLive reports, citing Assistant U.S. Attorney George Rocktashel.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
