Trust Index

Let’s face it, there are some real assholes out there. Don’t get ripped off by whiskey resellers who claim to have genuine, hard to find whiskies, at a great price.

The purpose of this page is to bring awareness to scammers, to get them removed from social platforms, and to protect the great people of the whiskey community. To track who is trustworthy and who you should avoid. A community-driven effort that relies on feedback from the public. Think of it as Yelp for TikTok Accounts.

And yes, this is a one-man show right now. Please consider supporting this effort by making a purchase from the Fan Shop. Better yet, submit an account for me to review, and you will get a special 10% discount on your next Fan Shop purchase.

How It Works

First, understand that no system is perfect. This index relies on the community for accurate information and sentiment. While I try to perform due diligence on each account to the best of my ability, I cannot (and do not) make any claims around accuracy or thoroughness. If an account listed below has the wrong rating, please submit a rebuttal in the submission form.

Second, the list below will grow and change over time. My goal is for this page not even to exist because we have rid the world of scammers. While I admit that is a longshot, it doesn’t mean I won’t try my hardest to make it happen. But I need your help! Please bookmark this page so when you do come across a shady account, you can quickly log it here.

Finally, requiring registration to this site allows me to vet those who are submitting information. I don’t want a scammer giving themselves positive ratings or making false claims. It also allows me to take action with accounts as necessary.

Rating System

Not A Threat

Level 3

Criteria

This not an exhaustive list (and I don’t want to give scammers a way to become hard to detect) but these tips should give you an idea of what I look for in determing whether or not an account is a scammer, or safe.

TikTok Account Details

  • Do videos include people or just show bottles?
  • Are they using other people’s videos?
  • Do all videos just talk about selling product?
  • Does the account bio list a website to make purchases?
  • Is the only way to buy through DM?
  • Are comments only for people who follow them?
Website Details

  • If a website is listed, does the link work?
  • When was the website registered?
  • Does it pass security and virus checks?
  • Does it use good grammar and industry lingo?
  • Is there a contact us page with a physical address?
  • Does it have a terms of service or privacy policy page?

And remember, shipping alcohol in the United States is highly regulated. If they are authorized to ship to consumers, or if they are a reseller for those that can, they will have a Terms and Conditions page, like this one.

And as the saying goes, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
