A Rockford man used counterfeit checks to purchase items from large retailers. He then returned the items to other retailers for cash.
Cameron Love, 27, pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of wire fraud in front of U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Kapala.
Love admitted that between mid-2010 and January 2012 he defrauded large retailers Wal-Mart and Farm and Fleet by using counterfeit checks and identification to purchase items and return them for cash.
The wire fraud charge carries a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in prison, a term of up to 3 years supervised release, a $250,000 fine and a mandatory restitution.
Love is scheduled to be sentenced on June 4, 2013.
