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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
