Today I have received an invoice direct from Cult Wines for one case of 12 at £3656.25 although I have never agreed to purchase!
I am sending the invoice back to Cult Wines saying that I have not agreed to any purchase and I want immediate cancellation.
Your opinion and whether you have heard of these people would be appreciated .'
I received the following response from Oliver Gearing:
There is no contract, agreement, verbal or written, payments or signatures signed to anything to do with whoever these people are and I will sue anyone who says we do including this so called company. If you print doctored documents on your website about us and cause us more harm you will simply be playing into the hands of jealous competitors who are annoyed by our web presense on wineinvestment.org, our connections and prices.
I hope that you understand we do not go around handing out invoices to whoever feels like working with us!
Don't you think its a bit suspicous that they included new fields on the invoice that make no sense?'
The envelope containing the 8th March letter from Cult Wines Ltd and the one containing the invoice (4th March) allegedly not sent by Cult Wines Ltd were both franked by the same franking machine.
I asked Oliver Gearing about this and received the following reply:
