It simply amazes me that buyers still purchase Rolexes without doing any due diligence beforehand.

And for what? ... to save $500, $1000, $2000 dollars? Once they realized they've been scammed, wouldn't they gladly pay the $500, $1000 or $2000 extra just to unwind the entire mess and have the watch they want with a 10000% less stress?

For me, it's ADs only. I don't need sleepless nights. Let the AD make its profit because when I have a problem and need service, they will be there to help me + I know it's original + I know it's never been reported stolen.

I will try to update as and when i can find some thing .

Atleast its a lesson not buy from some one with a sob story.

Thanks to a lot of guys here who are searching and helping.

Cheers
You keep plugging away on this my friend!

Hopefully it will bite this lying thief exactly where it hurts!!

Best wishes

Jon

No disrespect to you guys but I would imagine Milfan doesn't really want to see posts like these during this depressing time.

He has made the decision to buy from a generally trusted forum and its gone bad on him.

Kind regards

Jon

Add me to the list of people conned by this guy!

I agree that Milfan probably didn't want comments either saying about due diligence - I met with Norman in person and seemed like a genuine fellow who wanted to rent some of my equipment.

I'm appealing for anyone who's had dealings with this fellow to get in touch with me - I have made him a nice website: http://www.normanfowlerconman.co.uk/

I intend to add all information people can give me about experiences they have had with this man.

Norman Fowler

Norman Fowler or is it Nick or Rich or Adam or Evo Ant..or Mike UK. or Jason OR JJ McClure .

Norman Fowler, formerly of Propelair Way, Colchester, accused of conning people out of tens of thousands of pounds claims he is 'too ill' to enter plea in court.A SUSPECTED fraudster accused of conning people out of tens of thousands of pounds claimed he is too ill to stand trial or even to enter any pleas.

Norman Fowler was due to enter pleas on 18 charges after he was arrested in Spain more than three years after the alleged offences.

But the victims, who were allegedly conned into handing over thousands of pounds for Rolex watches and cameras online, will have to wait for a few more months before the court case against Fowler is heard.

Fowler, 38, appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court via video link from prison.

This prat has scammed people on a car forum I'm on too! Let's hope his arteries are as clogged as they look they should be and he drops clutching his chest one day soon.
