The offices mainly based in Torre del Mar on the Spanish Costa del Sol, were searched by a team from the police.
Vehicles, computers and credit card machines were seized.
Howard Capelli and other members of family and staff (mainly British nationals), in these offices were arrested.
The police also points out that the Benalmadena based lawyer Mr. Christian Lopez is allegedly involved in this set up.
It certainly has taken some years for the police to intervene these companies as we have records on their cold calls ever since 2009 when Blue Chip initiated their activities.
At first they contacted Timeshare consumers with the story of a guaranteed sale, for which they required an upfront payment. After the sale supposedly “fell through” they asked for more money to change the timeshare owner into a membership that would sell quicker, something that never happened.
The latest one being active is Rosedale Marketing or Rosedale Group who over the past month was “re-visiting” the victims from the other companies with stories of a police raid and money recovered. Asking once again for more money from the victims to get their money refunded into their account.
