Where have those thousands of wine and Spirits been hiding from the market all this time? And suddenly this place have them all? They have Kosta Browne,Dominus 94, Lewelling Wight 07, Sean Thackrey Orion, Pappy Van Winkle, Tesseron Cognac, Uccelliera 04. Even have 12bottle lot of 1945 Mouton that KL only had 4 before. They sell columbia crest resv. 07 for 163.96/12=$13.66. The next cheapest on W-S is $33. Calera Jensen 07 is $56 a bottle. Millions of bottles are popping out from the middle of nowhere. This is more inspirational than my good ol purchases in Bre-X stocks !!

Nevermind that infomercial salesman, nevermind the shady webpage with no contact address, nevermind that "blog" with a coming soon posted by "private" on Oct 3rd. Nevermind that overly abundant supply of out-of-stock wine. I AM SOLD, BABY !!

1. Is my address correct ?
2. Have you initiated a "chargeback" or "reversal of charges" with your credit card issuer yet?
3. Do you intend to continue being a member?

Lets see what happens next

So, don't keep us in suspense, what did you answer to the three questions?

hippomon,

I am perplexed as to why you haven't challenged this charge with your credit card company. Waiting for a check for a refund of a credit card transaction is a little dangerous.

Also, the practice of refunding credit card transactions with cash or checks is apparently one of the many ways that bad guys use to launder dirty money.

I wouldn't touch this outfit with a 20 foot pole.

I will keep you posted Smile


i dont understand why you haven't disputed the charge on your credit card. Confused

the longer you wait, the less legit you appear to your CC company, and even if a check is in the mail, you can always call your CC company and "allow" the charge once the funds clear in your bank account.

Me personally though, i'd dispute the charge STAT, and if the check shows up, just tell them you threw it out and keep it in a drawer for a few months in case your CC company decides against you.

again, i just don't understand how you haven't disputed this on your CC yet.
You can dispute a charge at any time. 5 minutes after it shows up in fact, you don't have to wait any set period of time.

If you've authorized the charge, your individual bank may have a waiting period, but an un-authorized charge can be reversed at once. This is not a special feature of Bank of America, despite their ads, it's federal law.

You should tell this crook - and it is a crook - that you have started a 'charge back' (use that term) with the credit card company. It's your only chance of getting your money back. Call your credit card company and tell them exactly what has happened and that you believe that this is a fraudulent merchant and that your goods have not been delivered.

Monitor your card closely, in fact it might be worth getting a new one. These types of credit card pigeon drop scams are known to continue to use the credit card numbers they have gathered over and over again.

Last week I got an email from a customer asking if this place really had our 08 Haut Tubee for $110 a case. We have 6 bottles of the 08 left in our cellar at home. I never released it for distribution to anyone, in fact I have no wine available right now, but they still quoted this as available and at $110/case.

It is not available, never has been, and was never available to anyone at that price.
Update - I was going to write about my friend who just got some wine delivered from this source, and although it was much cheaper then any other place, with very expensive shipping and the membership fees it was about even. Then I got home and I found out that my credit card credit for the $1,000 was rejected since the wine association claimed that they delivered the wine. Sigh ...
Called the credit card company and this is going to take some more work, I am still not worried, that at the end I will get my $$ back. What worries me for the first time is the fraudulent claim by the association that the wine was delivered. I am trying just to give you all the facts.

Wow, I can't believe they would just lie to the credit card company like that.

If I were you, I would tell the credit card company that they cannot prove that they mailed you the wine. It would have to be sent by UPS or Fedex with a tracking number, and by law they would have had to require an adult signature. Since they never actually mailed you a package, they don't have the paperwork to back it up.
