Stolen Maxim's Champagne warning

29 October, 2007

Wine suppliers WSI have warned retailers to be on the look-out for suspicious sources of Maximís Champagne.

The company has been the victim of a fraud, where an individual ordered a large amount of Champagne, sending in a fake bank counterfoil to show the payment had been made. A suspected fraudulent cheque had been used to pay the money into the bank, and the bank, when asked, had confirmed the payment.

The fraudster had posed as a genuine employee of a genuine company. The Champagne has very little distribution outside of John Lewis stores.

Traders offered Maximís Champagne 75cl in Brut Vintage, Brut Rosť, Brut Classic or Annees Folles by anyone other than a Maximís Champagne official agent or the UK distributor, Lanchester Wine Cellars, should make contact with WSI on 020 8975 1023 with the details.

There is a reward for successful prosecution and return of the goods.
