Norman Fowler / JJ McClure – Conman in Spanish Headlines

It has been reported that Norman Fowler was using the new alias of JJ McClure while living in Costa Blanca and Pedreguer, both close to Alicante, Spain and synonymous with British ex-pats and the BBC reported that he had attempted to defraud another victim by selling a vehicle reported as stolen.
