Coca-Cola sued for refusing to honor prize claim

GURAYAT, 9 September  — The Ministry of Commerce’s office in Gurayat has transferred a complaint filed by Ibrahim Abdul Rahman Al-Shalhoub, a Saudi, against the Coca-Cola International with the ministry’s anti-fraud department in Riyadh. In his complaint, Shalhoub accused that the company refused to pay him a cash prize worth SR100,000 he had won during a sales promotion.

Speaking to Arab News, he said that he was ready to give an undertaking that he will bear all the consequences if it becomes evident that he had forged the plastic bottle cap that won him the prize.

“My family and I used to buy large quantities of Coca-Cola products from the very beginning of its promotion campaign. Two months ago I bought a case of Fanta bottles which had green plastic caps. One bottle’s cap carried a cash prize of SR100,000”.

He said he went to the Coca-Cola branch office in Gurayat the next day and presented the cap to an officer. “He requested me to come the next day because he wanted to discuss the matter with the management. When I returned the next day, I was told that it was not the original cap that carried the prize. The official considered it as forged.”

Nonetheless, the ministry’s office in Gurayat has taken an undertaking from Shalhoub that he would bear the consequences if forgery was proved.

The regional director of Coca-Cola said the company refused to grant Shalhoub the prize “because Coca-Cola Bahrain informed us that the green plastic cap presented to us was not original.”
