Norman Fowler Summoned To Court

My previous post back in August said that we had some big news about repeat offending scam artist Norman Fowler which is as the title would suggest: Norman Fowler has been summoned to court for theft of my camera equipment.

He was summoned on the 9th September to confirm his identity and court was adjourned until 30th September when he entered a plea at his plea hearing. While I am still unaware of whether he has pleaded innocent or guilty I am very happy that Norman is once again in up in court.

To my knowledge Norman Fowler was last in Chelmsford Crown Court in June 2012 and pleased guilty to six offences during 2010 and 2011, and was in breach of a suspended sentence handed out in 2008 at Hull Crown Court for similar offences. Norman evaded a serious punishment with only community service, however the judge warned that

He faces a lengthy prison sentence if he brings trouble into other people’s lives

Let’s hope that the judge at Norwich Crown Court takes into account the fact that Norman Fowler hasn’t reformed or changed and has been given ample opportunities in his life time, but has continued to “trouble” other peoples lives.

Although I am happy to see Norman Fowler in front of a judge and potentially being handed a “lengthy prison sentence”, this unfortunately will not replace my equipment, or any of the items or money people have lost.

In addition, it goes without saying that Norman Fowler is ultimately responsible for his actions and the theft of my equipment, however I do feel completely let down by the Norfolk Constabulary, who primarily ridiculed me, then took a painfully slow, rude an all around lackadaisical approach to the case. Leaving me feeling they had absolutely no concern for me or my belongings.

The most shocking thing of all is that the Norfolk Constabulary want me to appear at their station for claims that I have harassed Norman Fowler… As if my faith in the justice system could get any less!

Complaints to PCC, MP & Police draw responses

Having had no updates about Norman Fowler / Fraud / my stolen camera equipment since early July I sent a disgruntled email to Stephen Bett (PCC), Simon Wright (MP), Tim Harris (Essex Police), Richard Walker (Norfolk Police), Anthony Abigail (Norfolk Polce) and the rest of Norfolk Police to complain about the lack of progress but also to advise them that Norman Fowler scammed another person using a fake Rolex – however this drew absolutely no response from anyone.

On 13 August 2013 I wrote another email to once again complain that I hadn’t received any response to my previous email (dated 2 July 2013) and that I was still none the wiser as to what was going on with regards to Norman Fowler and my equipment, however this time I got quite a few responses.

Home Office Replies about Norman Fowler Fraud

Previously I uploaded correspondence from Simon Wright MP & Dennis Lacey, the Chief Inspector of Norfolk Constabulary – and while the Chief Inspector regrettably wasn’t able to recover my items, he thought that the police wouldn’t have been able to do so even if they handled the matter as a crime from the outset.

In contrast to the Chief Inspector’s opinion that earlier preventative action would have resulted in a different outcome, the Home Office said that “The focus on prevention needs to be stronger”.

The Home Office changes the way the Police work – however the two letters would suggest that the Chief Inspector hasn’t really taken on board the policy outlined by the Home Office on this particular matter. Continue reading

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
