As if fake Scotch wasn’t bad enough, the recent holiday season saw an online company scamming customers out of bourbon barrels from Lexington, Kentucky. The state’s Attorney General Andy Beshear issued a Scam Alert in December for the website OakWoodBarrels.com. The website claimed that The Oak Wood Barrel Co. sold bourbon, craft beer and spirit barrels that shipped worldwide. Three victims, two from out-of-state, said they paid more than $65O for barrels they did not receive. After receiving complaints, officials with the Better Business Bureau drove to the Lexington address listed on the company’s website but they found no physical building at the site. More complaints appear on the BBB online profile for the company, with one customer saying he paid $35OO for an order that never came. The Oak Wood Barrels Company website, which was registered in Great Britain has since been taken offline but the scammers are in the wind.
