Norman Fowler – new address revealed in Peterborough

With the recent developments of Norman Fowler scamming yet another person for a £5500 Rolex, there are fresh details surfacing about his contact details including a new address in Peterborough and a new mobile number.

I haven’t visited the property myself, but I’ve been informed by his latest victim that he may also be residing at 63 Willoughby Rd, Bourne, Lincolnshire, PE10 9JR.

Norman Fowler’s new mobile number is 07923410555, however this has probably been ditched as I expect quite a few people who’ve previously been scammed have called this number to offer some abuse. Continue reading

Norman Fowler scams someone using fake Rolex

It would appear that Norman Fowler is once again up to his normal tricks and has scammed yet another person out of a large amount of money when they thought they were buying a Rolex watch.

I’ve already been in contact with the new victim who said he arranged to do a deal with Norman Fowler for a Rolex watch which cost over £5000. From what I can make out it sounds like he’s employing his normal tactics to prevent any further action from the victim by giving various excuses, such as “the bank has made an error”!

Chief Inspector involved with Norman Fowler fraud investigation

We’re approaching the 6 month anniversary since Norman Fowler scammed high value camera equipment from myself, and while justice still hasn’t been served I am still determined to raise awareness of what’s happened to me and a number of other people at the hands of Norman Fowler.

If you’re not aware of what happened, Norman Fowler hired camera equipment worth over £5000 and didn’t return it to myself. I later found out about his previous history of over £30,000 of various scams and despite being well known to the police, with multiple appearances in court they haven’t managed to punish him for any of his wrong doing.

When reporting the crime, I was faced with abuse from the police and an nothing short of a shambolic response. (I’ve made complaints which haven’t been followed up, I had to make multiple requests for my items to be entered onto the NMPR – which should have been done as a matter of course… I could go on!)

Joanne Broadley

In previous posts I’ve discussed frauds / scams involving both Norman Fowler and a character known as J Broadley and we were unsure as to whether this was an alias or someone who was in cahoots with Norman Fowler and his various frauds.

After an anonymous tip off from someone who I can only assume is another victim of Norman Fowler, I was advised that J Broadley is in fact Joanne Broadley, who I’ve been advised is living with Fowler at his Colchester address.

I’ve got some more updates on Joanne Broadley / Norman Fowler to come in the coming few days so keep watching this space!!

Norfolk PCC Investigates

Yesterday I contacted the Norfolk PCC, Stephen Bett, by telephone and left a message his answer phone. Previously I had used email and Twitter as a means of contact which had proved unsuccessful, but the Norfolk PCC, called me personally today and advised that the email listed on his campaign site was no longer in use and that he would investigate into what I consider failings of the police.

He seemed to understand my frustration over the phone and said that the matter would be researched, so hopefully his involvement will regain some confidence in Norfolk Constabulary and the legal system as a whole. Continue reading

Norman Joseph Fowler – Another Victim’s Thoughts

There are three ‘R’s that could be used to describe Norman Joseph FOWLER, “Rotund, Repugnant and Recidivist”, not quite the same three ‘R’s that were touted by Tony Blair in his hay-day! But lovely descriptive words none the less!

Unfortunately, FOWLER hasn’t done anything to prove that the application of these words to his name couldn’t be justified. Although innocent until proven guilty, all the evidence stacks up to prove that these accurately descriptive words could possibly be applied.

Lets just take a look at the evidence of the cheque fraud to see how applying these world could possibly be justified, then I’ll leave it up to you to decide. Continue reading

The Internet & Vigilante Justice

In the last few updates to this site, I have been talking about how the internet and social media have created almost a viral form of vigilante policing and justice system which is regulated by the general public.

Since my previous post, “Stinson Hunter”, a Youtube/Facebook user who publicly revealed potential peadophiles by pretending to be 14/15 year old girls on dating sites then arranging meetings at hotels / public places has had his Facebook and Youtube accounts shutdown and had a warning from the police that he could be breaking the law himself. (Article on BBC News) Continue reading

Action Fraud – Useful or Useless?

Action Fraud is a new national reporting centre which you can use when you’ve been scammed or defrauded in the UK, but I wondered just how useful this service is having been set up after being made a victim myself, so I thought I would discuss what happened to see what advice they could give.

The waiting time was only 8 seconds, which was great , here is the conversation:

Michelle: Hello Thomas Tailford, you are chatting with Michelle, thanks for contacting us, how can I assist you? (Please do not reveal personal data during this web chat) Continue reading

The Big Society & Prevention Of Crime

While the Police have all sorts of crime prevention policies, I found myself very frustrated with the way my particular case was dealt with – but it appears that I am not the only person out there who feels that the Police are pretty powerless at preventing crimes relating to Fraud and other offences.

It appears that this could be part of the “Big Society” that the Conservative government often talk about! It seems that more and more members of the public are using viral social media on websites like Facebook, Twitter and also YouTube as they feel disappointed with the lack of action from the Police & the lack of effectiveness of the legal system that the Police have to work to.

Check out this video to see what I mean: Continue reading

Norman Fowler – Fraud Continues

While this post is totally speculative I can only imagine that Norman Fowler is still committing fraud using one of the many scams that are easily committed within the scope of the UK legal system.

I am now asking myself the question what to do with Norman Fowler’s personal website and have teamed up with another one of his many victims to make good out of the problems caused by Norman Fowler and the scammers who also operate in the UK.

We both intend to create a website which will update people, not only with new types of fraud or scams that are out there, but also a name and shame type system for those who’ve tried to report fraud to the Police and have had the same frustrating outcome. Continue reading
