An heir to the Rossy family is still in trouble: He fraudulently purchases $55,000 worth of alcohol

An heir to the founding family of Rossy stores, who has a criminal record, has allegedly done it again, this time by fraudulently purchasing expensive bottles of alcohol worth nearly $55,000.

David Rossy, 37, was charged in February 2023 with fraud and possession of property obtained by crime. The criminal must appear in court again on Monday.

In the fall of 2021, a couple from Saint-Eustache was informed by their bank about suspicious activity on their account. After investigating, the duo discovered that credit cards had been ordered in their names and that one of their existing cards had been used fraudulently.

“A member of her entourage”

“Given that the transactions and withdrawals were made using physical credit cards, the credit companies […] “I informed them that the fraudster was probably in their circle,” claims Quebec's attorney general in a legal document consulted by Le Journal.

That's when the alleged victims discovered the Pot aux Roses. They recently swapped their home for that of their daughter and partner David Rossy. The couple had not yet changed their address.

Not just a joke

Acting on a complaint, Saint-Eustache police officers searched Rossy's home to confiscate computer equipment. Instead, they discovered more than 380 bottles of alcohol on site – and not just junk. Because they appeared to have been acquired illegally, they were confiscated by the authorities. Among them we find the following bottles:

  • Veuve Clicquot Brut Pulsing Eiffel Towel, over $2,000;
  • Dom Pérignon Luminous Blanc 2008, over $500;
  • Moet & Chandon Bright Night, $130;
  • Moët & Chandon Nectar Imperial Rose Light Up, $250;
  • Clase Azul Tequila, $325;
  • Cabernet Sauvignon Cake Bread, $140;
  • Louis Roederer Raw Crystal, $450;
  • Tignanello Tuscany Antinori, $190;
  • Clase Azul Mezcal, $530;
  • Rennina Brunello Gaja, $450.

A small portion of the seized bottles were purchased legally, but the majority were “the product of illegal activity,” the court document said.

David Rossy has been in trouble with the law since his early twenties. In addition, following this alleged fraud against his in-laws, the thirty-year-old was charged with three additional cases – two for failure to comply with his terms and one for alleged blackmail, death threats and harassment of an ex-spouse.

Additionally, he pleaded guilty in 2018 to charges of theft, credit card theft and fraud. He was sentenced to one year in prison and fined nearly $35,000.

The year before, he was arrested again for luring teenagers on social media.

During her testimony in court, the young victim explained that Rossy had threatened to send nude photos of her to her parents and friends at school in an attempt to ruin her life. Then, in 2011, he was jailed for threatening young girls that he would distribute intimate photos of them if they refused to undress for him.
