Norman Fowler / JJ McClure – Conman in Spanish Headlines

Norman Fowler was recently arrested in Spain and was put in a jail in Alicante for gun related matters, but has been released on bail despite a warrant for his arrest in the UK after being sentenced to prison for theft.

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.

BBC reveal Norman Fowler and rapists on run with warrant for arrest

In a shocking BBC investigative report, it was revealed that Norman Fowler and a number of convicted rapists, child abusers and criminals who’ve committed sexual assaults were on the run from police and have not been brought to justice.

Norman Fowler was convicted in 2014 and has since been on the run from the UK police, he absconded to Spain and was recently arrested on unrelated matters and has been released on bail despite his criminal conviction in the UK.

Since absconding Fowler began using a new alias, JJ McClure and had been held in an Alicante prison for a short time before being released on bail and is once again on the streets of Pedreguer.

Thousands of convicted criminals skip court for charges including child sex offences and rape are on the run.

More information can be found out on the BBC website about how thousands of rapists, child abusers and Norman Fowler (AKA JJ McClure) are on the run, the oldest conviction dating back to 1980: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-36024690

Norman Fowler / JJ McClure is of large stature, has a northern accent and generally a polite person. He was last seen in Pedreguer, Alicante and was arrested on unrelated gun matters but has since been released on bail

Norman Fowler – WANTED for £22,000 of Fraud

Norman-Fowler-Essex-Police-Twitter It would appear that Norman Fowler is wanted for £22,000 worth of fraud to 9 victims.

Since starting this website I have blogged about what happened with Norman and also dealing with the police. I talked about how I felt completely failed by the legal system and the police who uphold it.

I was scammed by Norman Fowler back in 2012, he hired some camera equipment from me and never returned it. He gave me various excuses while I tried to get the police to act, but they did absolutely nothing.

Norman Fowler made a mockery of the legal system, he didn’t turn up to his first plea hearing or the trial by jury. For his plea hearing he claimed to have a sore back, and for the trial by jury I was told that he had actually done a runner to Spain, AKA Costa Del Crime!

Norman-Fowler-Essex-Police-Wanted-WebsiteWhat’s crazy is the police interviewed me after Norman claimed I had harassed him… meanwhile according to Essex Police Norman Fowler committed a further 8 frauds to other victims, which could have been prevented had they acted sooner and not allowed Norman Fowler to play the system.

I’ll be updating the site with various news from other websites reporting on the case.

Notice to attend Norwich Crown Court on 22nd April 2014 at 10am

I am writing to confirm that you are required to attend court to give your evidence.

At the hearing on 21st February, 2014 at Norwich Crown Court, Norman Fowler pleaded “not guilty” to the following offence:

THEFT, contrary to section 1(1) of the Theft Act 1968.

This means a trial will now take place.

The trial is set to begin on 22nd April, 2014 at the Norwich Crown Court. It is expected to last for two days

At this stage I am unable to tell you the exact time and date when you should attend, however, it is likely to be early on in the trial. I appreciate that it may be difficult to keep all this time free, but it is very important at this stage that you are available to attend court at any time throughout the trial. As soon as I know the exact date and time when you should attend, I will let you know.

Please call or email me to confirm your attendance.

I will pass your details to the Witness Service who can help you on the day at court. They can also arrange for you to visit the court before the day of trial so you can look around.

For further information please visit the website:-

Thank you for your assistance as a witness in this case. Giving evidence is very important and your help is greatly appreciated.

So looks like I’ll be in Crown Court giving evidence against Norman Fowler on 22nd April.

I’ve also been informed that Norman Fowler is allegedly wanted on suspicious of theft of motor vehicle, if you know of his whereabouts please inform the MET.

Norman Fowler & The Criminal Prosecution Service (CPS)

Norman-Fowler-CPS-Hull

In 2009 the Criminal Prosecution Service (CPS) wrote to another victim of Norman Fowler’s. Norman Fowler pleased guilty to damaging the victim’s car and was ordered to pay £2000 compensation. Further, a judgement was issued at the Hull County Court for £7,253.62.

As of 2009 it would seem that Norman Fowler hadn’t paid any of the compensation to his victim, and I was advised over social media that Norman Fowler had in fact only paid approximately £000 – instead of the £7,253.62 he was ordered to pay.

So in effect, Norman Fowler committed a crime, was ordered to pay compensation by the court, then didn’t and continued to scam people, including myself.

Looking at Norman Fowler’s activities in the past and his dealings with the courts, it would suggest to me that orders of compensation and hours of community service are not working as he continues to break the law and doesn’t comply to any punishment.

I don’t blame Norman Fowler for his actions, as children often display a similar behaviour. If they are punished and the punishment is not actually enforced then the child would obviously have no respect for the authority dealing out said punishment.

I hope that the law sees that Norman Fowler hasn’t reformed despite being given multiple chances to do so, I hope that this time Norman Fowler is indeed punished properly for the things he continues to get away with… hopefully we’ll see soon!!

Norman Fowler – Norwich Crown Court – 27th January 2014

It’s less than 3 weeks until Norman Fowler appears in Norwich Crown Court to enter his plea hearing.

Norman Fowler was earlier arrested on warrant after not appearing at Norwich Magistrates Court. When he was arrested he entered a not guilty for the offence of theft and has elected for a trial at Norwich Crown Court.

Here’s the email I received from the Norfolk Witness Care Team: http://www.normanfowlerconman.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Norman-Fowler-Arrested-On-Warrant.pdf

Since receiving this email in October, I have been advised on email that Norman Fowler has in fact scammed someone else using similar techniques to the way in which he scammed myself. Continue reading

Norman Fowler appears in Grimsby Telegraph 21st January 2010

Found an interesting article about Norman Fowler which was published on page 3 of Grimsby Telegraph back in January 2010:

Police in North East Lincolnshire want to trace four wanted men.

Anyone with information about the men is asked to contact Humberside Police.

The four men are:

Tarnow Flemming, 40, who is wanted by Grimsby Crown Court for deception offences.

Norman Fowler, 32, whose last known address is in Goxhill, is wanted by Grimsby Crown Court for breaching a suspended sentence order.

Jamie Woollam, 28, of Grimsby, is wanted by Grimsby Magistrates’ Court for theft.

Aaron Parker, 29, of Wymark View, Grimsby, is wanted by Grimsby Crown Court for breaching a community order.

Call Humberside Police on 0845 6060222.

Police have not released pictures of Jamie Woollam or Aaron Parker.

Crazy how nearly 4 years on he’s still up to no good!

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 scams someone using fake Rolex

 

norman-fowler-ebay-scam-rolex-july-2013

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”!
