What To Do If You Get A Nasty Letter or Phone Call From:
Rockwell Debt Collection
If you are currently having problems with debt collectors, or if you suspect them of using illicit or unfair tactics, then please contact the BBC in complete confidence at the following email address:
(United Kingdom enquiries only, please)
is a debt purchasing company or debt collecting company listed in the
website of the DBSG
(The Debt Buyers and Sellers Group) and/or mentioned in consumer finance
forms. They have a legitimate function as debt collectors, but there
is some indication that some such companies (not necessarily Rockwell
Debt Collection), and especially the debt purchasing element, go a bit
too far sometimes and can make people's lives a misery when those same
people are at their most vulnerable. We do not suggest that they are
acting outside the law, but getting that letter or phone call is not
exactly helpful to you right now.
So the first thing
you must do if Rockwell Debt Collection is bothering you is not
to panic or despair. That's just what they want! They'd love
you to call their number and speak to their specially trained sales
team for 'advice'. But once you do that you'll be suggestible to whatever
they tell you, instead of getting independent advice. While we always
say that you should keep an open dialogue with debt collectors, we would
recommend that you do so in writing only. This will prevent them 'railroading'
you into any action which is not in your best interests, as they so
love talking people into doing things on the spur of the moment. Of
course, they are only doing their job, but that's hardly a consolation
for you in the present situation.
There are several
courses that are open to you, and some will suit your own situation
better than others.
A sensible option,
we would suggest, is a debt management plan or even an IVA - which is
designed to actually write off a large chunk of your unsecured debt.
But you would need to take advice on this and look at your income and
expenditure in detail. This option won't suit everyone. There's more
on this below.
For an alternative type of
loan you could apply for a 'logbook loan' which many
people find a very handy option. It is actually a loan secured on your
car, except you get to keep the car and keep the cash as well! That's
why some people find it such a good idea, as it unlocks the equity in
your vehicle without taking away your means of transport (there's no
need to sell the car). To apply
for a logbook loan click here.
Yet another option
is a no credit-check guarantor loan. This is especially
useful because your own credit rating is not looked at; you must find
someone else willing to act as a guarantor for you such as a friend
or family member. This is an ideal solution if you're at the stage where
your credit profile has been downgraded by recent events, etc. So click
the following link for Unsecured Loans
that don't need you to be credit checked.
If you wanted to
try a debt management plan, then we provide a whole-of-market service,
with a number of debt management experts on our panel. So whatever your
circumstances, your application will find the plan for you, meaning
the optimum outcome for your situation. It also means
there are no minimum requirements for debt levels or income.
So apply for a debt management plan using the form below.

Rockwell and the
Truth About Your Debt
Rockwell Debt Collectors
Limited is a debt collecting agency that has bought the debt from the
original lender (or in some cases another debt collecting agency) for
a small percentage of the original value of the account and is brazenly
attempting to get the full sum of the original from you.
Rockwell Debt Collectors
Ltd will use all sorts of methods to get money out of you in order to
profit from you. You may already have experienced bad and terrifying
experiences of them. They may phone you at strange times when they know
it is inconvenient for you and on an unacceptably numerous number of
occasions. They may send you official-appearing sternly drafted letters
or cards threatening to send people round and collect the money in full
or that they will take you to court for the full amount. Other strategies
may include saying that they will make a charging order on your home
or in some way bring about your homelessness or destitution.
So ask Rockwell
for a copy of the original contract when you took out your loan or credit
To find out if you
qualify for an IVA or can benefit from a debt management programme,
