This might be one of the worst whisky scams ever | NBWA: America's Beer and Beverage Distributors

Three companies in England defrauded around 150 people, many elderly, out of $13 million by promising high returns on investments in rare wine and whisky. These companies cold-called their victims in the U.S. and used fake names, British accents and "aggressive and deceptive tactics" on the calls, promising big gains and high-end parties in Scotland for investments in spirits. Thankfully, the FBI recently arrested Casey Alexander, who agents said handled the money for the London-based scheme. A sting operation utilizing a source inside the whisky investment firms and an unidentified man previously convicted of securities fraud helped bring down the process.
