BLUE CHIP still active, still not to be trusted….

The dubious timeshare resale company Blue Chip continues their dodgy business in spite of being raided by the police in October 2010.

Read our previous warning http://wp.me/p1kmoi-1y

Blue Chip with web http://blue-chip-sl.com and the recently created http://www.bluechipsite.com are operating from the same telephone numbers as always: 0844 811 4363 0844 811 4371

They offer a resale to timeshare owners they approach by the ways of a cold call and ask for a retainer fee of over £1200. The usual happens with the guaranteed sale, the buyers pull out due to a sudden and unexpected event and the timeshare owner is stuck with a payment loss of £1200 and a dubious marketing contract for the sale of their timeshare.

Looking at their “new” website, which is an exact copy of the old one, we spotted one change. A warning that states the following:

IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT
PLEASE BE VIGILANT OF ANY COMPANIES CONTACTING YOU AND ASKING FOR MONEY.
THE ONLY METHODS OF PAYMENT USED ARE VISA & MASTERCARD.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION.

A similar warning was placed on the Half Moon website and we can only suspect that they have had their client’s lists stolen and people are called by other dubious companies claiming to be connected to Blue Chip.

Our warning would state the following for this company:

PLEASE BE VIGILANT OF ANY COMPANIES CONTACTING YOU AND ASKING FOR MONEY.
THE ONLY METHODS OF PAYMENT ARE THOSE AFTER THE SALE AND NEVER UPFRONT!!

If you have been called by Blue Chip and offered a resale, please let us know!

      I have just been contacted by Kevin at Bluechip offering me £8,000 for DWVC membership, if I give a holding deposit if 1700 euro’s (refundable on completion of sale). He insist’s he already has a buyer lined up – wouldn’t phone otherwise!!!

      Why don’t I believe him!!!

    it looks like i am another mug who has been scamed.in my case for at least £1400 by blue chip.the person i was dealing with was a Karen Martin.

    • Anne says:

      Hi I was phoned yesterday and again today by Joanne Hunt from Blue Chip Sales Malaga address phone no.08448114363[familiar?] Joanne spoke a mile a minute advising she had a buyer for our Platinum Club Class, offering £14.200 I told her we had been contacted by scam companies before -she was adamant her company was up front. Today she asked me to pay 1690 euros a “fully refundable insurance retainer” and insisted it was paid through Visa or Mastercard to -wait for it- protect us against FRAUD etc !!! At this point I told her I would not be giving her any bank details before checking out her company…..the call was abruptly terminated. AH well 10 out of 10 for effort Joanne-keep vigilant fellow timeshare/holiday club owners>

    • Marc says:

      Looks like you arent the only one John. I was contacted today 2/9/13 and offered£9250 for my unused timeshare. After TWO HOURS on the phone, and having been stung by Half Moon Holdings for 1200 euros, I mentioned this site which sent the lady concerned into a huge diatribe of how this site is supporting the big timeshare sellers and is against the small “genuine” companies trying to “help” customers sell their ownership on. After the third hour I decided not to answer the phone and was then subjected to two answer phone messages stating how disappointed she was in my negative attitude. Thank heavens I read the advice as she was talking.This lady called herself Lorna Jarvis

  5. Peter says:

    I have been contacted today by Blue chip offering me a too good to belive price for my timeshare.
    I told the young lady, this seems too good to be true so it probably is goodbye.
    I have been trying to sell my time share with Petchey for 12 years now and think I have heard all the scams by now,but I can see how people can easily be taken in by this I probabily would have done myself a few years ago after all I was daft enough to buy the thing in the first place.
    Best Regards

  6. David says:

    Hi, I have very annoyingly fallen for this, unfortunately I found your website after the event.
    However, as I have paid by credit card I feel that all is not lost and I would be grateful if you could
    email me details of how to reclaim this

  7. Tony says:

    I was phoned today by a lady going by the name of Monica Blair she stated that she was working for Holidays Direkt and that because my membership had expired 5 years ago that I was entitled to £9,600 back because of unused holidays this money would be paid to me by Blue Chip SL she also gave me her phone number which was 0844 811 4363 but before I could get the money back I would have to send her 1,600 euros which when I told her we were pensioners she said that they would pay 500 of that amount which would leave 1,100 euros (£960) during the very long and irate conversation the amount changed from pounds to euros and back again and the initial amount was reduced each time my first instincts were that this was a scam and after reading all the comments on this website I think I was correct . My wife got very upset over this as she was listening in the background,the caller was very rude she said my wife was screaming like a fishwife, we have been scammed before that was why she was upset. We were once with Holiday Direkt but have not been for some time , I still believe this was a scam I would appreciate any comments on such.

  8. Jennifer says:

    I have not only been caught out once but now three times, I think they are all working together. Yesterday Blue Chip asked me for tax upfront because they had got the money, my reply was take it out of the money due me, they hung up. How do I get all mu euros back ?

  9. Sheila says:

    I have just been contacted by an alleged independent, but when you call back its Blue Chip, they offered me £27,000 for my Club La Costa points, but like everyone else on this blog I have to pay a “type of insurance for the purchaser” which I would get back when I had cleared funds in my account. Glad I am a nosy person and checked the web for any blogs or info. Thanks everyone.

  10. wendy says:

    hi ther e ,well its me again , well blue chip ,tryed to get back intouch with me on the friday ,wasn’t here cause had family business but NO sign of the u p s man . havn.t heard of them again so far but would like to know how they can say they can sell club class when it has gone bust. that would be a great help if you can help us get our money back ,please let me know how to go about this. CAN WE TRUST ANYONE THESE DAYS , ITS TERRIBLE.

    • Alan says:

      Wendy, I was successful in getting my money back as I paid by Credit Card and made a claim under Secton 75 of some regulation whose name escapes. I suggest that you contact your credit card company and refer them to the Mindtimeshare website stating that you have been a victim of a fraudulent transaction. Alan

  11. Andy says:

    We haave just received a call from Blue Chip, saying they have a buyer for our Timeshare and they want us to p[ay £800, it was a good job my wife was vigalent and checked the internet otherwise we could have lost more money to the sharks

  12. wendy says:

    hi there, l was contacted last jan,2012 by blue chip and made the mistake of givibg them 995e never heard from them again till the other day saying they have found a buyer for my club class they are sending u.p.s with a bank draft tomorrow for £10.250 . but then l will have to pay £1230 to a BRUNO OSCAR DA SILVA DOS SANTOS IN PORTAGUL as this victora said to pay for foreign insurance law because l am selling to a company that is not in britain..am waiting to see if this comes tomorrow .let you know.

  13. Rose says:

    We were contacted two weeks ago by a man called Simon Tayor. He said he was based in Nerja and worked with Blue Chip. He said he could get us £7.00 -£10.00 per point for our Club La Costa gold membership. My husbnd told him we would not not accept any less than £12.00. hours later he telephoned us back and offered us an incredable £6100,00 . We knew it was a con when he asked for 1500 euros up front and there was no way round that. He said if it was not legal we could claim our money back from the credit card. He rang us back several times and on the final time I told him that we were not going to sell. He became angry and i told him not to phone again and put he phone down.

    • Chris says:

      Hi Rose,

      just got a cold call phone call from a very nice lady, Lyn Williams at Blue Chip offering me £4K for my timeshare (I paid 15K to Marriott) they are using the same tel number she promises to find someone willing to pay me that amount! can’t wait lol

  14. Martin says:

    Just had a call from Jenny Goodman of Blue Chip who gave her website as http://www.bluechipsites.net rather than .com which has been used previously. I couldn’t find it so they ‘checked with their IT dept’ and phoned back saying all was now fixed. Their scam was that since their first call to me they had had an offer of £5700 for my £5000 DWVC holiday club membership. The money would be sent to me by cheque or bank transfer and I would not have to pay them anything – they get their fees from the buyer.

    By then I had checked on the Mindtimeshare website and had also checked the phone number they used which was 0203 0518463. This has also been used by their ‘sister company’ Absolute Solutions which has also been listed on Mindtimeshare. I also remarked that Blue Chip had been closed down n 2010. When confronted with this Jenny lost a certain amount of interest in progressing my sale and would offer it to another buyer.

  15. Jane says:

    I am another victim just today – I got you on the internet to be furious when i realised this is a scam. My Co-op Bank has referred me to their Team which deals with Visa payments so it will be investigated and I’m now going to phone O8448114363 and declare the transaction is void, but I know they will ignore me……Emily Wright is the name of the woman I have to phone who did all the “scam” with me this morning from admin@bluechipsite.com – their latest office address on their website.
    What a mess this is……..Jane

  16. sean says:

    i was contacted by Blue Chip in similar circumstances to what people descibe. After paying the 1395 Euros fee i became uneasy, and after reseaching them on internet i felt it was a scam. Unfortunately they only gave their name just before paying the fee, otherwise i would have done the research earlier. When the paperwork/contract arrived 1 week later i had contacted Mindtimeshare and therefore returned the paperwork rejecting it/void on all documents. When they recieved the paperwork they tried to convince me still everything was legitimate stil,l but if i still felt as i did i could have my money back which i duly got back in full 10days later. I think i was lucky, with the help of Alberto of this website. many thanks!

  17. Disgruntled says:

    I was contacted by Blue Chip last week. They are using the same tactics as many other companies in that they categorically state there are no upfront fees. However, after telling you they have a client who will pay a ridiculously high amount they then require a ‘fully refundable’ amount of 1590 euro to cover ‘liability insurance’ in case you don’t send the deeds once they have deposited the money in your account. I was offered £7500 for two weeks in Tenerife and suggested they just transferred £2000 to my account and kept the rest to cover the insurance. Surprise, surprise I was told that they do not ‘operate that way’ and that the liability insurance is a legal requirement.
    I also asked about Rincon Holidays and was told that she had ‘never heard of that company’ even though they have the same phone number and address as Blue Chip!

    • Martin says:

      I, too have been contacted by Blue Chip this week, saying they were operating from Rincon holiday village. Offer of £8860 for platinum club concierge membership. Needed visa card details as a ‘surety’, as money was to be paid before certificates sent. They said 995eu would be held until all certificates received, but would not actually be taken from the account unless I defaulted, Needless to say, they applied for the money immediately. My banked phoned to let me know of a possible dodgy payment request about 3 seconds before I was going to phone them! The bank has stopped the payment and cancelled my card and sent me a new one.

    • brian says:

      Was contacted by blue chip, they have uncovered a market for resales in Russia would you believe! When I said
      I wanted to do some research on line I was told not to be put off by spurious anonymous blogs and she offered their business registration number to prove they had been in business for 7 years. Seems to me the only success they have in business is in duping poor long suffering time share owners desperate to be rid of worthless contracts with expensive annual payments.

  18. Debbie says:

    Was a ‘Club La Costa’ member (5001 points) but decided to ‘sell’ due to astronomical maintenance costs. In 2009 was contacted by a company who, for £940 upfront, which they said would be refunded on completion, put me in touch with ‘Club Class Concierge’. Went to Spain (May. 2009) and joined (£8,500) on the promise of £35,000 payment in three years by way of a ‘Cashback Europe’ voucher. ‘Cashback Europe’ have reneged on the voucher quoting my failure to correctly complete my claim.
    Contacted at the beginning of the year by ‘Half Moon Holdings’ offering £15,000 for the voucher. Wanted £1,000 up front. Almost got caught, but something made me check the website. Contacted by a chap called Michael from Office of Fair Trading (checked website – registered in May 2012) – ignored his calls after that !!
    Contacted a couple of times over October by ‘Blue Chip’ when I finally managed to talk with Fiona Roberts (tel no 0844 811 4363), I was offered £31,665 for my ‘Club Class’ membership, (yippee I thought – finally going to recoup some of the money), then came the request for money – 1,300 euros as a ‘bond’ . Wanted credit card details to take the money (not again – SCAM, SCAM, SCAM was the warning being screamed in my head) Details not given as card not with me due to give them on Monday – should be an interesting phone call.
    Something has to be done – how do you get your name taken off the list to stop these calls being made.

  19. Sharon says:

    I have been contacted today by a Kim Willis offering me £6000 for my Maltese time share. They asked for £890 up front and told me that I’d have to contact the buyer and arrange everything via DHL COURIER SERVICE. I smell a rat at this point and research the so called blue chip company. I’m glad I did. She is ringing me back tomorrow at 2 o’clock and I can’t wait. I’m one potential victim that will not be messed with. I was only interested in selling because I don’t use it.

  20. Valerie says:

    Val Grays Essex

    Just had a call from Ellie Brooks from Blue Chip SL informing me that she had sold my Club Class Time Share for me for £10,800 to a cash buyer who was going home tomorrow so needed to get transaction done quickly. She explained all the details for the sale and how it would be carried out and then asked me for 1,200 euros. I said that I would not pay up front and why could they not take this out of the payment to me – unable to do this is it was a legal requirement to get a commitment from me so that the buyers were not left out of pocket. I told her that I had been cought before and have lost £3,000 already to other companies who were fraudsters. She said that they only take payments by Visa or Mastercard so that if there was aproblem I would be able to get my money back – she is going to call me again tomorrow!!!!!

    It seems funny that they have contacted me now as I had a e-mail from Cashback Europe Plc last week informing me that as I had not completed the Cashback details in time I had lost my money.

    It all sounds good when they call but if they were ligitimate as they say they are, that they get all their costs and money from the buyers, why do they need my money upfront!!!!!

  21. Helen says:

    Helen (Wales)
    i was contacted by a Lucy James in mid April, (08448114363). Lucy said they had a meeting that afternoon in Malaga where they were based and would I sell my membership, for a minimum of £8,000. I agreed as we don’t use it. She rang me back to say a Mr & Mrs Mc Claren who were cash buyers were interested and had offered £8,800. I said I would except their offer. When I agreed, she informed me that a colleague would contact me. It was during this next call I was told that a security deposit of 1280 euros was needed to ensure that I would sign over my paper work, this would be refunded in 4 – 6 weeks on completion of a successful sale. I told them I needed some time to discuss it with my husband, this gave me time to contact my bank, who suggested if I could get something in writing the bank would fight my corner if something went wrong!
    Another call from Malaga (within 30 mins), I gave my card details confident the bank would ensure no loss of money (if scam).
    When the paper work was sent in the terms and conditions it stated: ‘The Comany can not be held responsible or liable if an offer does not complete’ they would then retain my money for a year and after this time (if no sale) it would be forfeited. Alarm bells rang I contacted the bank and they suggested to cancel my card. Luckily, no money had been withdrawn. I have not return the paper work (by courier) or contacted them direct, I am waiting for them to get in touch with me so that I can give them a piece of my mind, not that they care. I haven’t heard from them since Friday 27 April. I hate these people who prey on good people and their hard earned cash!

    • Sharon says:

      Hi Helen
      I hope that you do give Lucy a piece of your mind as she was the one who tried do the same to me. She seems so sweet on the phone doesn’t she. I told her that she should be ashamed of herself and asked her how she sleeps at night doing this job when she knows that it’s all a con. She claimed all innocence before she hung up the phone!!
      I’m glad you didn’t fall for it. As soon as she asked me to pay them some money I was concerned and looked into it further and realised they were not to be trusted.
      It’s a shame because I expect like myself you had hoped to sell and have a nice little sum of money. They are indeed horrid people so lets hope that they will be stopped somehow.
      Sharon

  22. JOHN says:

    I was contacted by Paul Davies of Blue Chip two days ago about selling my holiday scheme with Club Class. I told him that I understood that it was not transferable but he insisted that if done legally it was not a problem – and they are re-selling Club Class holidays every day! So I agreed to release it for sale. Just two days later Ellie Brooke contacted with a sale for £9.300, which I agreed was acceptable. She explained the process and requested a 1200 Euros ‘security payment’. I told her in no way was I going to pay up front any money. I would be willing to put such a payment in the control of an independent solicitor. She said this wasn’t possible and if I wasn’t interested she would offer this to the next persion on the list. I requested confirmation that I would not lose money over this. She sent me an email which referenced their website, http://www.bluechipsite.com, which I attempted to contact. However, my computer protection system message stated, ‘When we visited this site we found it exhibited one or more risky behaviours. May be risky to visit’. I then did a google search and found this website and found this very helpful warning. So they won’t be receiving my 1200Euros!
    Thanks,
    John

  23. caroline says:

    yes, nearly fell for it but intuition got the better of me and went on this web site.another company tried this with us a couple of years ago ,they even gave us a free holiday.when we got there they wanted us to pay up front for a court case NO WAY we had been had in the first place . blue chip have just this minute rung back ,they are saying their company is different one from the one on this site but not risking it .thanks for all your warnings.

  24. Sharon says:

    Oh by the way I didn’t pay them any money but asked the sweet woman how she sleeps at night knowing she is stealing from people!!! I said ‘Shame on you girl’ and she put the phone down. Thank you for this site or I would not have known about their reputation, but I never would have parted with the money upfront anyway. It’s dreadful that they are still operating. These people clearly have no conscience. Disgraceful !!

  25. Sharon says:

    I have indeed been called by Blue Chip with the con suggested above. They asked for a retainer of £1200 in order to process the sale of my timeshare with Club Class Holidays. I find this all very upsetting.

  26. Brian says:

    I was called today by Blue Chip.
    When I receiv3ed the call I checked the screen which said “out of area” this made me suspicous to start with.

    The charming lady started explaining that she was in a position to sell my DWVC membership.

    I immediately said “hold on I need some information from you first”

    I asked for the phone number saying she had come up on my screen as “out of area”

    Silly lady had to ask someone for her phone number and surprise surprise it was 08448 114 363

    A number we may recognise.

    Anyway I told he to sell my membership for as much as she can get.

    I then said that when she has the sales presentation and a stupid person wants to buy then grab the money off them before they have to pull out for one reason or another.

    She asked what I meant by that.

    I told her to read MIND TIME SHARE like I do.

    Somehow I don’t think I will be hearing from them again.

  27. vivien says:

    i have just been phoned by blue chip to say my club class conc is worth £10,000 and they would ring when they get a sale but i need to pay £880 up front but i said i would check them out as i had been coned before , which i have done with you so wont be paying any money thanks.

  28. Alan&marlene says:

    Have just been contacted by Lucy from Blue chip who asked if we wanted to sell our club class membership. Said no immediately having already read about them. She accepted that as an answer and rang off!!!!!

  29. Alan Moffitt says:

    Was a ‘Club La Costa’ member (1501 points) but decided to ‘sell’ due to astronomical maintenance costs. In 2008 saw a newspapers ad (Daily Mail) by ‘E-one’ who, for £940 upfront, which they said would be refunded on completion, put me in touch with ‘Club Class Concierge’. Went to Spain (Sept. 2008) and joined (£6,000) on the promise of £19,500 payment in three years by way of a ‘Cashback Europe’ voucher. ‘Cashback Europe’ have reneged on the voucher quoting my failure to correctly complete my claim, which is not the case.
    Contacted recently by ‘Timeshare Disposal’ offering £15,000 for the voucher. Wanted £1,000 up front.
    Contacted yesterday and again today by ‘Blue Chip’ who have just offered me £10,800 for my ‘Club Class’ membertship but wanted 1,200 euros as a ‘bond’. Their ‘Ellie Brooke’, who gave the contact No. 0844 811 4363, is ringing me back today at 3.00pm (GMT) as I told her I would not pay anyhting up front as I did not trust any timeshare companies.
    How do these people sleep at night?
    How do they stay in operation?
    Surely, with the correct legislation in place, they could all be shut down over night.

  30. Barry Bolger says:

    Hi All,

    On my last post mistake it should have read 1300 Euros for insurance not 13000 Euros, they phoned again today I told them there offer of £6000.00 is to good to be true and that they are a scam company and not to phone me again. Hope this is the last that I hear from them.

  31. Barry Bolger says:

    Hi All,

    Phone call today from a Brian Windsor representing bluechip Malaga offering me £6000.00 for a my holiday vacation membership saying that they had a buyer for it and wanted my home address and details to send it to me when i qestioned them further about it they wanted 13000 Euros for insurance to be paid to them by Visa or Mastercard I have not paid any money to them there website is http://www.bluechipsite.com. My advice to everyone is to avoid this company like the plaque.

  32. Mel says:

    I too have been offered £12000 for my Club Class time share with a customer sitting in the office with the cash in a holdall! That was in October and the customer now seems to have run out of money,after numerous calls over the weeks, the latest excuse is they are now trying to get a loan. I paid a “security deposit” of 1343 euroes. me thinks I have been had like your other correspondents in this matter.

  33. John says:

    i was contacted by bluechip on 26/10/11 and they told me that they had a buyer for my clubclass membership willing to pay me £7000 but that they needed £1,252,72p from me as a retainer, so like an idiot i agreed to them taking this money from my credit card account and after numerous phone calls to them they keep telling me that they will be in touch with me when they here from the buyer and promising to ring me back to keep me informed but they never do it is always me who rings them and always told the same thing ( my last call to them today at 10-45 ). so it looks like i have been scammed and lost my £1,252,72p and no sign of £7000.

    • Hi John,
      That’s Blue Chip for you, take the money and no sale ever…
      We will send you an email with more information.
      You state you paid with credit card so let’s see if we can advice you on how to proceed for the refund claim.
      Kind regards
      Customer Care

  34. Andrew N says:

    On 21st Oct.2011, I received a telephone call from Sue Millar of BlueChip SL Nerja, Torax Costa, Malaga who claimed to have a purchaser for our Club Class Concierge Holiday club membership and asked if we would be interested in selling it on for the sum of £8500. As we were disappointed with our CCC membership we were very excited by the prospect of recovering our initial outlay.
    I was then asked for a refundable security deposit of 1395 Euros. I gave my credit card details to make the payment. Later that evening after realising how foolish I had been I researched the company on the internet and discovered this site. I contacted Alberto Garcia and followed his advice . I wrote to Bluechip to cancel the agreement within the 15 day cooling off period (by registered post) and also contacted my bank where my credit card was immediately blocked to prevent further transactions being made. However it was too late to stop the withdrawal of the 1395 Euros deposit. I did receive a reply from Bluechip saying they would refund my payment minus 20% for admin fees as stated in their terms and conditions. I did not receive a copy of their terms and conditions until after the payment was taken and this was not mentioned on the initial cold call.
    I again wrote to them requesting refund in full and at the same time started procedures to claim the refund from my credit card. I am happy to say that I have now received notification from my bank
    that my claim has been accepted and my account has been credited with the full amount. I will in future be on my guard and check first before acting on any calls with dubious offers.
    Many thanks to Alberto Garcia and his team at RDO.

    HI,it looks like I am another sucker for admin@bluechipsite.com. Theycontacted me in september with a fantastic story about how they had had an offer £6,700.00 for my share with Travel-Connect.All I had to do was send a fee of £1200 which like a fool I did.since when I have had excuse after excuse,and I have now been put on hold until 19th december when the deal will be finalised.Regards mugs wanted.

    • Dear John,
      Thanks for your message.
      Let’s see if we can help to recover this money as they don’t deserve to keep it.
      There is no sale and they know it.

    !/12/2011. Just been called by Daniel, from Blue Chip. 08448114363. Offering to buy my holiday share, if I pay 135 euro up front, on a visa or marster card. It would be refunded after they had sent out contract, signed & returned to them. Once bitten, twice shy. I did ask why could I not sign the original & send back to them, incurring no charge, only postage. Also asked why cannot they deduct fee from what they said would be sent to me. After that I put the phone down.

  37. They called me last night with the same old crap, and again this morning with some more of the same old crap.

    All this seems to have taken place after my contacting Club Class about refunding me all my money, strange.

    My husband was approached by Blue chip in sept, I normally deal with the time share but have been working away. So when blue chip rang we thought it would be a good deal for our timeshare. So when they rang later in the week, he agreed to pay the £1000 holding fee. As soon as he rang and said they had taken a fee I knew it was a scam (my poor husband was really upset as he is a very honest and honourable man). We contact RDO and they gave us lots of good tips which resulted in us gaining a full refund. We followed Blue chips instructions very closely so they could not wriggle out of refunding our fee and returned all their information as instructed within the 14 day cooling off period. It has been a really stressful fwe weeks but thanks to RDO it was a positive outcome

    I was called by Blue Chip last week which was unbelievable as I was one of their “victims” earlier this year. My credit card payment was refunded by my card issuer but Rebecca from Blue Chip seemed blissfully unaware of this. The purpose of her call was to give me a progress(?) report on the sale, i.e. none. Two days later, Half Moon Holdings called stating that they had buyers willing to pay me over £7000 for my ILG/DWVC membership. They were told what to do with their offer.

    On an associated matter, another caller purporting to be able to sell my membership was already in possession of all my credit card details. This card has been cancelled so please be aware that this is another potential area for fraud.

    • Hi Alan,
      Thanks for the message. Unbelievable how stupid these people are and they don’t even keep a record of those who got their money refunded?
      They just go through their lists over and over and continue their lies on the phone, incredible.
      The company who had your cc details is very scary, if you have more details we would like to know!
      Regards
      Customer Care

        Hi, I have received a cold call from Blue Chip today and an hour later an offer of £10.00 per point for my Club La Costa points (1501). I have contacted Club La Costa and been informed not to deal with this type of company.
        Thank you for keeping this web-site up to date about this so called company.
        Regards
        Steve
