There are many unique requirements for international debt recovery in all countries including the Philippines debt collection services which differ from debt collectors UK and therefore it is very important that cases are handled directly by our local expert international debt collection agencies and not here from debt collectors UK. This method of international debt collection sets Creditreform aside from the competition who in many cases try and recover debts from a UK office base only. Using the local offices and partners enables us to achieve a far greater success rate and our No Win No Fee service together with competitive commission rates against monies recovered only ensures you get the best service and the greatest chance of recovering your money without incurring huge upfront costs.
