Wine Fraud Occurred in Every Facet

Maureen Downey, a wine authenticator, explained that wine fraud isn’t limited to counterfeiting; it also includes selling fake wines online, stealing wine in transit (from restaurants and from storage facilities), and claiming insurance on it.

One seminar attendee, Eric Desgouttes of Kerry Wines, said “Hong Kong is not making fakes, but we source wines from around the world.” He has unknowingly bought and tried several fake wines.

In fact, NanoMatriX addressed the following wine frauds:

  • Counterfeiting – fake products
  • Parallel Trading – products traded outside the authorized territory
  • Product Return Fraud – customers returned fake products for refund
  • Warranty Fraud – warranty claimed on fake products

Don’t Worry, NanoMatriX Can Definitely Help

And while some producers of fine wine are trying their best to thwart counterfeiters by changing labels or adding holograms, others don’t have the resources to answer buyers’ queries regarding if they have bought the real thing.

With a view to the frauds, NanoMatriX implemented certain brand protection plans.

TrackMatriX® Geo and TrackMatriX® Lock

The major difference is TrackMatriX® Lock has double layer of information sets, which means the covert message in TrackMatriX® Lock can only be seen via the dedicated inspector app while any generic QR code reader can read overt message.
