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.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
