Have you been contacted by Rincon Holidays in Torrox Costa?

A new alert goes out for a company called Rincon Holidays. The address they give is Nerja, Torrox Costa, Malaga 29793 and the telephone number they use is 0844 811 4363

Checking the telephone number 08448114363, we also found an unfortunate coincidence with another dubious resale company in the same area using the same number, Blue Chip, about which we have written different blog articles; http://wp.me/p1kmoi-7C

Rincon Holidays has started calling timeshare consumers claiming they got their details from a form filled in on the internet months ago, requesting resale information for the timeshare membership. (Not all consumers remember doing this though..)

The offer for the sale is there straight away and the consumer is informed about the process of the sale. They claim the buyer will deposit a 30% of the purchase price as soon as the timeshare owner confirms they want to sell and the same day the paperwork will be couriered over for signature. Payment for this sale will be received in 4 to 6 weeks’ time.

So far so good, and does this sound too good to be true…well unfortunately yes, because to be able to take up this fabulous offer the timeshare owner is asked for a 1395€ upfront security fee…

Will they never learn?

    Hi , Just had a call from Bluchip asking us to sell our timeshare .. We were told that they hadsomeone who was willing to pay us 11,000 pounds. They wanted a fee to be paid on a credit /mastercard or visa cardfro 1300 euros. I eplained i felt they were a scam.. He assured me that if they were a scam they would not have a card reader as this is linked to a bank which can easily be traced … He then stated that they had been round for 7 years and if there were a scam they would be closed down by now . (they are out in spain ) He claims that all he wants is the comission on the 11 ooo , which is 5 % . DO you tthink they are a scam? They have a registered company number , and what seems to be a call centre. They also have a website… not the best but here itis the contact info of the man who contacted me : Mark Davis

      By the way they suggested that your website was indeed the scam, run by someone called Antonio and a pass police officer.. They have pointed me to a websiite called MINDSHARE the truth … They claimed that you guys were posting on behalf of the timeshare company to put people off from selling their time share ……

    I received a telephone call from a Sue Miller who claimed to represent Blue Chip and asked if I could confirm that I had an Elite membership with Club Class and the membership number which she read over the telephone. She then said she would have to check with Club Class that I was the owner of the membership when she would call me back to go through the details of the deal,

    After a suitable time Sue Miller called back claiming to have a buyer for my Club Class Elite membership for £9500 which is more than I actually paid for it. I got the same spiel as Andrew North with the exception of being told I would need to pay £1395 up front which amount would be refunded when a courier cam to pick up my membership card on completion of the transaction. I was given the methods of being paid, bank transfer, bankers draft or a certified check. The procedure for the sale was explained and was the same as Alan North with the addition of the courier calling to collect the membership card and arrange the refund of the £1395 as he would have a card reader to make the refund at the door. I was suspicious from the start and these suspicions deepened when I was asked for credit card details to pay the £1395. I refused to give any details and told her that I would need to check out the company before I parted with any money. I can’t remember what her reply was but I pointed out that she had called me and that I knew nothing about her or the company and with all the scams which were around I wished to check things out for myself. The call ended with her saying she would call me back, I doubt that will happen after what I have found out on this and othjer web sites

    Hi

    On 21st Oct.2011, I received a telephone call from Sue Millar of Blue Chip Nerja, Torax Costa, Malaga who claimed to have a purchaser for our Club Class Concierge Platinum membership and asked if we would be interested in selling it on for the sum of £8500. As we were dissapointed with our CCC membership we were very excited by the prospect of recovering our initial outlay and she told us that we would receive another call from Blue Chip. admin/accounts dept. Within twenty minutes I received a call from Robert Ball who then asked for a refundable security deposit of 1395 euros and explained that I would receive the contracts in the post within the next week to be signed and returned to him. He stated that the Proceeds of the sale £8500 plus the refundable deposit would be placed in my account of choice within four to six weeks. I gave my credit card details to him to make the payment. Later that evening after realising how foolish I had been I stumbled across Mindtimeshare web site and discovered that my suspicions were confirmed and I had been the victim of a scam. The next day 22nd Oct.2011 I went to see my bank’s branch office 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 euro deposit. My credit card company said that as I had given my details and authority to Blue Chip then they had no proof of any fraud and could only advise that if after 30days from the transaction I had received no goods or services from Blue Chip then they could intervene and try to recover the money. I have not yet received any mail from Blue Chip and have not signed any papers. Is there any further advise you could offer me in my quest to recover the payment?

    kind regards
    Andrew North

      Hi Andrew,
      I am in a similar situation at the moment with Bluechip SL and a Sarah Baker and Robert Ball. I have paid 1395 Euros yesterday and await the contract next week. Does the contract ever arrive or who/how is the best way to try to recover the money paid when now after reading various logs i realise it it a scam. i have also contacted Mindtimeshare but would appreciate your advice also from one who has also suffered so to speak. I am from the UK, so i don’t know if that makes any difference also. The cc company point of view is that no fraud has happened yet but at a latter date may be able to dispute the transaction!

      Many thanks, Sean
