Man pleads guilty to role in multi-state, $300,000 retail fraud scheme that included Flint, MI., -area stores  An Auburn Hills man has pleaded guilty to his role in a retail fraud operation that authorities say bilked more than 100 Home Depot stores in 13 states, from Florida to Michigan, out of more than $300,000. Beginning in 2010 he and others used UPC codes of cheaper items that matched the general description of the more expensive item to allay possible concerns of HD cashiers. Federal investigators allege that the men, along with accomplices who have not been charged, would then return the purchased items without receipts in order to receive store credit for the more-expensive original price. The second man has not yet been indicted or arraigned on any charges associated with the fraud operation. He is free on a $50,000 unsecured bond, according to court records. The two men used more than 150 different forms of identification during the operation, according to the federal complaint. The plea agreement includes a sentencing guideline range of 41-51 months in prison. Wire fraud is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison. (Source
