U.S. Authorities Deport Wine Counterfeiter Rudy Kurniawan

Less than a week ago, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers escorted Rudy Kurniawan onto a commercial flight at Dallas-Ft. Worth Airport to begin the final chapter of deportation proceedings. Just over 24 hours later, and after one layover, the convicted wine counterfeiter arrived in Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, just outside Jakarta, Indonesia, according to an ICE bulletin, ending more than two decades in the United States.

‘The Con’ on ABC Airs The Wine Con Featuring Rudy Kurniawan

‘The Con’ is brand new on ABC. In an upcoming episode airing on Wednesday, March 24th, they follow the wine con aka Rudy Kurniawan. Back in the early 2000s, a young man named Rudy Kurniawan exploded onto the scene in the fine wine industry. It’s a place where the rich spend more on one bottle than some make in a full year at a job. Rudy was said to be spending up to a million dollars on rare bottles of wine at auctions and throwing very lavish dinners. This all sounds like a luxurious life doesn’t it?
