Welcome Stormfront,

Glad to see more people finding out about this.

My intention is to get more exposure so that we find more people who are being treated this way.

Wilf.

I had come back to my PC and was still logged on and forgot I was not logged onto my account. Anyway I arranged to have it transferred to my account but found that it was going to cost me $140 to do so. Instead I decided to delete it rather than pay this. Unfortunately it is still stuck and cannot be used again until it expires.

Anyway I signed up for a new domain and transferred my blog to it. It is now

Finding Fine Wines | But Beware of Wine Investing Scams

Now about this suing. A domain name is just a pointer to a container to hold a website it is the website that situated on the host that is the culprit and the person who developed the website not theowner of the domain name.

This threatened suing is like someone owning a house and renting it and threatening to sue the owner because of something the renter did. Apart from this if I had put a page up on facebook and facebook being sued for something I put on it.

Anyway the website is back up and both the domain name and the website are mine.

I guess Eamonn Egan is now well aware of this forum so I guess he may sue Tradewinds now for all the comments placed here.

Cheers

wow!! eamonn egan is suing everyone for illogical reason..

btw, creating facebook page for this matter is also a good idea, like:

why won't Australian Wine Index (Singapore) try to sell my wines? | Facebook

that facebook page has a good rank too for many relevant keywords.

it will give additional publicity to cellar link

Re: APW Australia Portfolio Wines

5 years ago I bought a small portfolio from APW. I fell for the sales pitch sadly. Earlier this year I wanted to sell my collection as I needed the money and that my 5 years storage would be up in December 2011. In March I sold the better part of my collection. It represented about 30% of my totally outlay. I was not entirley happy with the price but I agreed. It took four months and countless phone calls and emails before the cheque arrived.

Now I need to sell the remainder of the collection but so far I have been unable to speak or get anyone to return my calls. My 'free' storage expires next month and I will not be paying a penny more to keep my wine.

What are my options here? I feel as though I may as well just write it off and tick another box on my idiot list. I would value your opinions though.

Cheers.

The potential deletion of this thread is of concern too. How does one copy the entire thread offline?

Also, is the wine still in LCB's warehouse or is it one of Cellar Link'sown facilities?

Way too many unknowns for a true investment. This really is becoming an expensive and drawn out life lesson.

Good luck to all involved and thanks for the support.

There's only 11 pages, you could print it or you could use a free web clipping service like Evernote.

That's a perfect example of what happens when you try to censor the Internet. People just get more annoyed about it and post the information more widely. Still it doesn't stop the idiots trying.
