The report was filed online as follows:
Norman Fowler, a well known fraudster, rented my equipment & has not returned it despite a request on Sunday evening.
He claimed he sent the item to my address, but it went to Newcastle – and looking at his history this is just trying to delay me.
He gave me the address of 83 Propelair Way, Colchester, CO4 5YT. He should technically have a receipt stating the destination of the parcel, including it’s weight etc.
He currently has:
Canon 5D MK III
Canon 24-70mm f/2.8
Canon 17-40mm f/4
He also found my phone in his car and hasn’t returned this item. I didn’t have a rental agreement relating to this item so maybe this part could be considered theft?
I think this is time sensitive and would appreciate a quick response, Colchester police haven’t even replied to my emails (I emailed 10 police officers there)
After sending this I was greeted with the wonderful screen below:
