Cold call from Blue Chip SL based in Malaga saying can sell my holiday club. Had to pay up front charge and now realise this is a scam. Have you had any other complaints?

    Yes, it is a scam. No European company is allowed to request money in advance. This is what I sent them when they contacted me:

    The “Timeshare, Holiday Products, Resale and Exchange Contracts Regulations 2010” is the UK law that implements the European Timeshare Directive (2008/122/EC) required to be established as law in all EU countries not later than 23 February 2011.

    The Regulations state that for resale:
    a. Defined as:- “Where a trader assists a consumer to buy or to sell a timeshare or long term holiday product” (Note that the term “consumer” refers to both buyer and seller)
    b. Disclosure:- Consumers must be given a written contract containing, as a minimum, the following:
    i. Identity, place of residence and legal status of the trader party to the contract.
    ii. Date and place of contract
    iii. Short description of the services (ie. marketing)
    iv. Duration of the contract.
    v. Price to be paid by the consumer and any further obligatory costs
    vi. Whether or not the trader has signed a code of conduct and where it can be found
    vii. That the consumer has 14 calendar days in which to cancel the contract without giving any reason but may incur costs which must be clearly set out in the contract.
    viii. An absolute ban on the payment, in any form for any purpose, by the consumer until the service has been completed.

    Note point viii of the EU directive and UK Regulations. You are not entitled to request the €1200 that you asked for in advance.

    Yesterday I received a call from woman who was working for Bluechp SL. She offered $7, 000 for the timeshare and from my side I used to pay $1, 500 in order to close a deal. I decided at first to look through the internet about this company and found out that they are wanted by Interpol!
