In magistrates court next week for fraud by false reoresentation. Advice needed

I basically received money via bank transfer for items i did not have to 5 people totalling £1000 also a further £2000 to 21 further people but im only being brought up on the 1st 5 counts the other 21 are just for consideration. 

My summons to court only states that im being done only for 5 count totalling £1000 

I no alot of people with judge for what i have done but it was done in deperation (no excuse i no) but 3 years later it has caught up with me. Either way u look at it i basically stole the money with no intention of sending the items to the buyers 

Anyone with any advice at the possible outcome will be? 
I have no crimial record to date and i will be hand up pleading Guitly as i did in the police interview. I will be using the duty solicitor on the day. This is my 1st offence will i go to jail.
