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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
