Costa del Sol Golf Holidays – www.costadelsolgolf-web.com
Every January we go to Portugal or Spain for a golfing trip. Usually there are about 12 of us. Terry booked it this year with the above and we were all getting a bit concerned when no vouchers or tickets for the accommodation or golf tee times turned up. Dozens of phone calls and emails went unanswered.
Richard Allard, who runs the “business” finally answered our calls only after we did a bit of detective work and managed to track down a relative (who must have got on the phone to him and said “sort it”).
He eventually told us that a rep he was working with over there had done a bunk with £25,000. “So?” That’s not really our problem. Seems he’s skint though and needed to go to the bank to borrow money to pay us back. He promised to phone every day to keep us informed. He didn’t.
So now we have to re-book the accommodation and golf (and we’re about £5,000 down between the 12 of us).
We have his address now, though, not just the phoney virtual office mailing address of Regent Street so at least we’ll be able to start a small claims court proceeding. Anybody else need it?

The purpose of this is to make people aware that the website still appears to be trading.
My advice would be to not touch them with a barge pole.
Seems he also ripped off a party of four in Ireland. Luckily they found this blog and now also have his address.
We’ll post updates here.
We’d be interested to learn of other parties he has ripped off – maybe we can club together for the small claims court action. If you have fallen for the con trick also please ring 01253 290501
The police are now involved and want to hear from anyone else who has been conned. Let me have your details and Terry can pass them on to the officer investigating.
