I have been getting numerous calls from this number. They identify themselves as Rockwell (investments)
I BET YOU ARE A SCAMMER TOO. no doubt you are one of these "callers". no one believes YOUR claim that this is a LEGITIMATE business and not a boiler room ripoff. today they might be registered as joe shmoe financial. once shut down for the illegal activities or rude and abusive calls, they just "re-invent" themselves as jane schmane investments or whatever they decide to call themselves that day in that state.
Lies and deceit !!!
You'r a dummy. What do you think you do w your retirement?! Put it under your mattress
Of corse you invest either blue chip and index funds, mutual funds depends on you risk tolerance.
Do me and everyone on here a favor no advise if you only have a fifth grade education? Deal?
Elizabeth I don't think they would deal
Some shady dudes.
"Bill Gannon" (not his real name). He was nice enough to tell a bold faced lie, saying "He knows me." after asking to speak with my boss.
Do not appreciate callers who keep calling but do not leave messages on the answering machine.
Us BIG boys do our vetting, hence I am not a Rockwell client. Clean up your past and start watching your brokers and do some vetting of your "opportunities". You have too many lawsuits and complaints all of which have not been cleared. Not every investment brokerage firm has pending litigation against them. The BIG BOYS want the little fish to start acting with integrity because it is that lack of integrity that creates a diminished industry. Loosing peoples money has nothing to do with all of the complaints you have. Presenting opportunities to make money does not make your firm a good firm. Bernie Madoff made his clients a lot of money right up to the end. "Simply Fit" shows that your company does NOTdo its vetting. My firm could not get the due diligence from the Madoff scam and thus I was never involved, even thought the marketing material was awesome. Your Firm promoted the "Simply Fit" Opportunity (your words not mine) So maybe you're old, fatigued and have no energy to vet the "opportunities" you promote since the felony conviction was readily available to all who looked.
These problems you are facing have all been created by a lack of vetting on Rockwell Global capitals part and not the lazy, fatigued people you are blaming.
Funny stuff as I read the above threads. I have had many calls from this company. Sometimes they try to act like a friend who has just misplaced my bosses cell number. Other times they try other " tactics", too many to go into but all are sketchy attempts. My vetting shows a "F" with the BBB for non response to claims of problems. This is not to say that all complaints are true, it simply means they accept these claims as true because they do not deny them officially (These posts from their employees and piers trying to counter their reputation does not constitute denial of the complaints, BUT it is funny!!). When ANYONE calls you a crook officially, or with a group designed to protect the public's interest, you must respond to that advocate group or accept what has been said about you as fact. There is no middle ground! THE COUNTER TO SLANDER, IS THE TRUTH. Truth that can be backed up and not just words.
Perhaps this so called "legit" company could join some of the consumer advocate groups and fix each complaint so the complainer no longer holds these grudges against the company. Unfortunately that will not clear the numerous lawsuits claiming, and I quote ?traded accounts at frequency that was far beyond what is legally presumed fraudulent.? Rockwell Global Capital will tell you that this was just one ?bad apple?, however trading 930 transactions on a single account in less than a one year period is INSANE and could not have been performed by one person without oversight, PERIOD! BTW this was not the only case I found. I found many! I just don?t feel like posting them all.
Combine this with recommending ?Simply Fit? to their lists of clients shows a CLEAR lack of oversight on what their people are doing. Rockwell Global Capital has a duty to oversee their brokers, and that is OBVIOUSLY not happening. FYI Simply Fit is run by a convicted felon and that should have been vetted and then told to all prospective investors so those investors could make an informed decision. Had Simply Fit made money no one would care if he was a felon or not because we all believe in 2nd chances. That information was not passed to the investors therefore the burden falls to Rockwell Global Capital for non disclosure.
All I have stated is a matter of public record and vetted easily. I am not an ex-employee or a jilted investor because I do my Due Diligence. If you do business with a firm like this (Any firm really) you must watch your money and transactions carefully.
Remember ?Caveat Emptor? meaning ? Let the buyer beware?
If your broker did that, then that broker is to be blamed, not every single person under the umbrella of that firm. JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs have executed billion dollar level frauds. London Whale anyone? Taxpayer funded bailouts? Are you kidding me?
There are some scumbags at every firm.
Lying is illegal, doing research and repeating findings is not illegal.
There are some brokers that make their clients money, it's not stealing when the broker provides a service.
regulators actually make it that the broker charges a consistent commission, brokers are actually skirting the rules when they lower commissions on losses to help their clients believe it or not, it's a profit sharing restriction that brokers have to follow.
Being a broker is quite a bit of work. Especially if you're a broker with integrity because people like you love to be told a story and lied to and it's impossible for a broker with integrity to last in the business because of that fact.
You don't respect the soft spoken nice guys that are honest with you, you respect the people who push you around on the phone and get you to make split second excitement based emotional decisions. The most successful brokers are the cocky do***e bags that burned you because you likely hang up on the nice guys.
The best traders are the worst salesmen and the best salesmen are the worst traders. It just so happens that you're giving your business to the great salesmen and the bad traders. You want a good trader? Do yourself a favor go to a day trading firm and find the top trader and hire them. Or establish an 8 trade virtual trading track record with brokers that call you. Simple.
I was once a broker, I sucked as a salesman so I only had a small group of clients, some of them were personal friends and family the rest were total strangers. I left off everyone of my clients with more money than they started with. I realized I was an amazing trader and a terrible salesman. Introverts = great traders extroverts = great salesmen. I was an introvert I knew I could help clients but I could never convince them that I could so they never listened to me.
Since then I've gone into just day trading my own account because it's just so much easier than trying to convince people to do what should do. To this day I still can't figure out the puzzle that these salesmen complete. I would look at them in amazement when they would open account after account after account and I being the better trader couldn't get people to listen to me.
I was too nice, too ethical, and I was way too good of an individual trader to waste time being yelled at by people like you who don't know what they're doing and would never listen to anything I had to say unless I was screaming at the top of my lungs with fake excitement. It was an easy decision to walk away from that business, trust me, its a miserable, depressing career.
As a side note the fact that you put in 15 hours to make the same buck that a trader can make in 15 minutes doesn't make you more honest. I just think you're working a bit too hard.
SAME HERE!!! liars liars liars, anyone that calls up and first thing out of their mouths are "I need (my boss's name)'s cell phone" are immediately suspect to me. Only scammers try that kindergarten technique.
They are total scammers, the only people that call and say "hey, I forgot soandso's cell number, can I get it?" are scammers. These guys don't sound any different.
What a tough job you have. You deserve a raise!
Legit companies do not do telemarketing period
They are fricken rude and they lie
I saw same thing on a Sopranos Episode!!! Man, this really happens ?
Rockwell Cap: Calls potential client list A with notice of stock value up. Calls potential client list B with notice of same stock value to go down. Stock goes down sticks with client list B for call backs saying how's that for stock-savy! hopes to land clients from B listing. Client list A goes to the other desk for new name on company letterhead and repeat and rinse twice. So... being from List B ....... Your Name here.
A rude, ill-mannered, condescending jerk just called, demanding I listen to his spiel, he hung up before I could ask him to remove me off his calling list. Who is hiring these people? Please stop!
Smarter than most
To Clarify: people do lose money in investments from time to time. The difference between JP Morgan, Goldman and Rockwell is that the larger firms dont completely deplete their customers accounts while charging full commissions until the acounts are zero. You are correct that losing money for customers isnt illegal. But lying about to customer about inside information and the BS research you do is illegal. So is marketing yourself as an investment bank when all you do is steal peoples retainers. If anyoen just does a simple FINRA search on anyone that works for Rockwell you will see a list of 20+ complaints and arbitrations. with a lot still pending.
And regardless of how much money I have. I actually work for my money, rather that steal it from others. So knowing how hard it is to make money I am trying to help others not make the mistake I did and invest with your company.
Got a call from DAN. Called and said he needed Harold's (my boss) cell number. I asked if this was a sales call and he said NO. He said he knew Harold and needed to talk with him now. I told him Harold was at the dentist so his cell number would not work right now anyway so could I take a message. He hung up! I did some vetting and found out DAN is lying out his A$$. The lies this man told to try and connect with my boss is incredible. He will never ever, ever, ever make it to my boss. I have input their numbers into my system to pop up when they call again. I hope to talk to this lying man again and let him have it with both barrels. If they have no morals on the phone why would anyone EVER do business with them. People who lie like this will steal everything from you. BEWARE!!!!
Someone from out of USA
Yes, I get calls from this number to open an account with Rockwell Global.
Different guys, different names. There must be some marketing company like Dun and Bradstreet, or infoUSA wrongly listing your information, that is the source of the problem. Reps for independent boutique broker dealers like Rockwell Global Capital do not communicate with each other in regards to "who not to call". The next guy calling you has no idea that you are not a fit, otherwise they would not call you. If there is one broker in specific by name that is constantly calling you over and over even after you requested that them to stop, what you should do is request to take down their full name, call the main number and request to management that you receive no calls from that person, that broker will likely never call you again. As far as soliciting prospective clients from hundreds of miles away - firms like this have independent brokers that have clients all over the country and even some out of the country like in Dubai for example. National business is the reason independent brokers pay state fees, for state registrations, to legally do business in each state. If you could do business nationally and internationally, why would you limit yourself to one state? Good investment advisors, brokers and bankers are always building their business, and will always call for new business, but they will not waste time on people who don't want their business. With that said, I do not know who is calling you but all the info I have posted is the best I can do to help.
"I'm not in the market" never works, the person will think you were in the market at one point, and try to qualify you or they will think you're just blowing smoke. Try this instead: "I'm on a Federal Do Not Call List, I'm not a candidate, never have been, don't own any investments, never will". The source of the problem is that you were probably wrongly listed by Dun and Bradstreet, which means that every company that purchases their contact list will contact you. If not this one another one will. Rockwell is legit, they are a registered broker/dealer, not every single contractor for the company works the same way, nor is every single contractor rude and dismissive of your requests to not receive calls. What is supposed to happen is that each person that calls you rip up your information (upon your request) and does not call you again. As far as reps from any hanging up on you, don't expect it. It will likely never happen. Reps argue back and forth with people all day prior to them becoming clients, that is how every client in a brokers book becomes a client in the first place, through 15-25 minute sometimes even hour long arguments and heavy negotiations. Also brokers do not call you just to sell an investment, they call to build a portfolio and make their clients money, that's the real objective, either way not everyone is qualified for such a relationship. Hopefully this helps.
How about "I'm not in the market. I'm sorry somebody sold you a list with my name." Think that's clear enough?
I'm not in the market. I am not qualified. I don't make enough to invest. The last three calls were 11:30AM, 12:40PM and 5:10PM last week. I tried to be nice and decline to buy, but they won't hangup and keep trying to sell me things I cannot afford. What company does that?
As you said, my trust means nothing to them. They won't quit calling.
Do Not Call List
I'm on every list for Do Not Call, and they still call at all hours of the day. Different guys, different names, No matter how many times I ask them to never call again, they keep calling. They said it was because I wouldn't buy from them.
Ask yourself, if they were legit, why are they telemarketing from hundreds of miles away. If they're so good (like the paid for postings on this site) they wouldn't need to keep calling and calling and calling after I said 'NO."
Full name please
This company has about 6 locations and over 185 independent contractors - therefore, just because you tell one contractor not to call you, it doesn't mean someone else won't. Also unless you work out of your home I'm not sure how you receive calls at "dinnertime". This company has over 250 Million under management from qualified investors. If you work out of your home, you're likely not a qualified candidate, or you took the initiative in giving someone specific your cellphone number or home number. As far as your "trust" your trust is meaningless if you already requested people not call you again. Your trust only means something if you intend to work with the person calling you. When people like you post like this, all it shows is that you're very obviously not the "busy business men" you pretend to be on the phone, so what would make it better is to post your full name and stand by your complaint if it is real. This way you end up with less calls and representatives know how to separate guys like you from the real guys. I'm almost 100% sure if people knew you were unqualified the calls would stop.
I will never trust a company that won't honor my request to not call me again. I don't know who they pay to post these positive messages, but they harass me on a monthly basis... at dinnertime just like every telemarketer.
receiver of call
Called, asked for the former owner by first name. I said he's not longer here.
Just says, oh, ok, thank you.. and hangs up.
No clue what the guy wanted.
It's a good thing not everyone else shares your paranoia. I hope your customers show your products and services and business the same kind of dismissive approach, it's only right that they do since you are that way. If everyone were like you, a good percentage of businesses would close overnight (including yours). Choices would be limited, and competitive industry diminished. Good deals would be missed, great opportunities lost. There are some people who see a "consequence" to everything, some people get screwed by one person and then instead of learning to filter genuine product and service providers through asking questions, they take the lazy approach and just paint the entire industry or company a certain way and then out of fear and regret they adopt a defensive neurosis. Some of the best deals and relationships I've ever had started by people approaching me first, out of the blue. To you it doesn't matter because as long as your head is in the ground and you don't lose what you can see, you could care less about losing or missing out on what you don't see. Opportunity cost doesn't cross your mind. Maybe you're old, fatigued, and have no energy for that stuff. Maybe you're content with where you are, and that is fine for you but to go around spreading your tired approach as if it's "wisdom" is backwards. The fact is only the most motivated and hard working investment professionals approach you first, the ones you approach will be too laid back, busy with thousands of clients to pay your new account any attention, which can cost you time, and more money in the long run. Most people don't want to work with guys like you, so it's great that you block people it saves time, spreading your flawed logic to other clients is the backwards part. The guys who benefit read stuff like this and just laugh at your amateur "warning". They know it's a big boys game.
I never buy any item or service offered through a telephone call or a knock on my door, unless I initiate the call. When I receive these type calls, I block that number. If you need a product or service make the calls and do the research yourself or suffer the consequences.
