I’d love to say that I’ve had an amazing experience with the police, but I haven’t… nor did Gemma Atkinson.
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
While the Police have all sorts of crime prevention policies, I found myself very frustrated with the way my particular case was dealt with – but it appears that I am not the only person out there who feels that the Police are pretty powerless at preventing crimes relating to Fraud and other offences.

This ponders a question, why is fraud so endemic within the UK? Continue reading
The site was unfortunately infected with a trojan and has been down for some time, but the site is back online now and will update you with the progress from Police, Members of Parliament, Police & Crime Commissioner and any fresh victims.
I hope no-one was caught out by Norman Fowler over the Christmas period as he has done previously and I look forward to posting once more!
I’ve not been posting as much on here lately as I am waiting to see what happens with Norfolk Police, however I’m still active behind the scenes!
While Norfolk Police are dealing with my enquiry, another victim of Norman Fowler has contacted us through the site with a similar story to mine and many others. “D” from London told me: Continue reading
First time I went to report what I thought was a crime, I got told a few things:
1. I was stupid.
2. Norman Fowler had in fact not actually committed a crime.
3. I should sort it out myself.
