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.

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!

A Warrant For Norman Fowler’s Arrest – Wanted!

Norman Fowler was summoned to Norwich Magistrates’ Court on 30th September however, Norman Fowler failed to attend court and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

The Police are making every effort to find Norman Fowler in order to bring him to court as soon as possible and I have been advised to speak to my local Police Station if I have any information that may help, or if I need to speak to them for any other reason.

In the meanwhile, I am being investigated by the Norfolk Constabulary as I believe Norman Fowler has lodged a complaint about harassment, which I will continue to update on this site.

While speaking to another victim of Norman Fowler’s, I was told that Norman Fowler also filed a harassment complaint about them. This was after Norman smashed up his car with a baseball bat.

Check out the letter from the Norfolk Criminal Justice Services: Norman Fowler Warrant For Arrest

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.
