Paul Woonton
Paul Woonton took money for a tv that he didn't courier to us Weston Super Mare, Nationwide
22nd of Aug, 2011 by User567330
Came across an advert on the Trade-it free ads for a tv, could only contact the guy via email. His emails seemed pleasant and we were happy to pay him half the money for a lcd tv which he promised to courier to us. We paid for half the tv, and were then going to pay for the other half when it arrived. It never arrived! I have all his details; address, bank numbers, phone. Having done some research into this guy I have found a Paul Woonton of Manilla Crescent, Weston who was done for GBH in May 2011 and now who has conned me out of money living at another address in Weston, August 2011. We have phoned his father at Yate Engineering, to no avail.

He also took money from us for a non-existant music festival ticket. This guy has a lot of history of this so how he's still doing it I do not know. We also have all his details and will be reporting him.

Hi Dustyhendrix, I'm currently in posession of a lot of information about Paul Woonton and would welcome your info in order to bring together a case against him. Please can we make contact? I'm just about to pass on all of my information to the police, have already notified the fraud squad. I did finally make contact with his father today who confirmed that his son is living in Weston, (possibly Manilla Crescent) - this is based on info received about court case for GBH in May. He welcomed me contacting the police but was unable to give an address. I believe he has washed his hands of his son as in 2008 he took out a £20, 000 loan for a car using his father's details!

Any info about Paul Woonton please get in contact or go to the police. I have reported him to Avon and Somerset police, 25th August 2011, all info is going to the fraud squad, they need as much info as possible to arrest him. He is well known to the police and we need to bring him to justice!

I have spoken to the police today and they say that if you have information about Paul Woonton you need to call the Avon and Somerset police on 0845 456 7000, otherwise all these numerous cases against him won't be dealt with. That's why he's getting away with it!! The police tell me that they can't even deport him to NZ or OZ even though he is currently wanted in NZ to face 30 counts of fraud by the Aukland police. Please help me bring him to justice, he's a crook who's getting away with it. He's currently pulling a scam in Manchester to do with festival tickets - PLEASE BE AWARE!!!

Please phone Avon and Somerset police on 0845 456 7000, any info with regards Paul Woonton will be acted upon. He has defrauded a lot of people, not just in this country but abroad also.

He has been in the baltics the last few months causing problems for hostels in Tallinn & Riga and now Vilnius. He hasn't paid for any of his stays in any hostels.

He left hostelgate on 24th August, to Fortuna hostel, and apparently is at Filaretai Youth Hostel this week (also on hostelworld) until he is kicked out from there.

He has been tipped off by the Police in Vilnius, they also have his passport so he can't go anywhere.

Vilniaus apskrities 3-iasis policijos komisariatas (Vilnius County 3rd Police commissariat)
Pylimo g. 52, LT-01136 Vilnius
Telefonas: (5) 2716078

Perhaps forward the contact details of the Police station in Vilnius to the Police in Avon and Somerset.
Good luck.

Hi, Thank you for the vital information. You have been very helpful, the net in closing in around him!!
3189 days ago by Anotherinformervilnius
There has been many hostels and several people in the Baltics states who have all kept in contact closely regarding the matter, sharing information.

Someone has also posted a video of the famous Paul Woonton on youtube, have to see to believe!

Yes, as of this morning we have heard that he was taken into police custody in Vilnius.
We think that he is only guilty of crimes in the UK so if this police station in the UK doesn't contact the station in Vilnius than they will have no choice but to let him free.

We will see what tomorrow brings.

Vital information has already been passed onto the police about his whereabouts. (Thank you so much for that information). Please help me by going to your local police or contacting the Avon and North Somerset police however small you may feel his crime against you is. If we provide the police with any info about the crimes he has committed he will be arrested and dealt with. They are treating any info about him seriously and welcome any new or old info you may have. He has been defrauding people since 2005 (I believe), maybe even longer than that. Please keep any emails that he may have sent you as it is evidence that is needed to convict him.

I'm grateful to anyone who can and has already helped.

I can confirm that as of 4.20pm this afternoon, contact has been made within the fraud department of
Mr Woonton's primary bank (Nationwide).
After speaking to them at length and forwarding all relevant information, I was given an assurance that they were in a position to take immediate action.
Whilst I couldn't & wouldn't want to make any guarantee's, I think there's a strong possibility of Mr Woonton
not having the benefits of this account much longer.
I personally haven't been affected by the actions of this person in the same monetary context or under the same circumstances as the majority of others, but If it is of any consolation to anyone, I will be doing everything I can to close this unscrupulous individual down as quickly as possible.
Here's what everyone can do to assist this process:
1. Contact the fraud department within the Nationwide Building Society.
2. State your name and address.
3. Make a statement of fact that contains the following:
a) The amount of money that was transferred into Mr Woonton's account.
b) The date the deposit or transaction was made.
c) How the transaction was made.
d) The account name, number and sort code that was provided by Mr Woonton.
e) What your transaction into this account was supposedly for.
Please note that I have not provided a contact telephone number for the Nationwide for obvious reasons...
Google it, then call them on their provided number.

Thank you Cerebus, am now contacting the bank. Glad to hear that we are all doing what we can to stop him. I'm in contact with the police and passing all info on to them.

Popular guy..
He is in good hands now.
He was actually arrested Thursday night for urinating on the Presidential palace. Very smooth..

He didn't pay the fine for public urination so he was taken into police custody. Police then learnt who he REALLY was and that he had a string of outstanding debts to bars & hotels in Vilnius.

The phone number of the police in the UK have already been forwarded onto the Police in Vilnius.
The only question now is how many convictions is he going to be charged for years of fraud in many EU countries and even Australia & New Zealand!?

So any victims, please now is the time to act!

PLEASE PLEASE Contact PC 1149 Niall Craig on 0845 456 7000, [email protected] at Avon and Somerset Police or your local police, (please give them his details) as a matter of urgency if you have any information or evidence about Paul Woonton, no matter how small you think his crime against you is. He is currently collecting all evidence against Mr Woonton, both in this country and abroad, and Mr Woonton will be arrested!! BUT He needs YOU to approach the police, they won't come to you!!

Thank you so much to everyone who has been posting information on this site. Your information is valued and has been passed on to the police.

AliPilsworth- Yes, these details were passed onto the Police on pylimo street, Vilnius.

In Lithuania he is just guilty of unpaid hotel/hotel bills, bar tabs, public urination, assaulting & lying to police.
He was arrested again for not paying for a breakfast at a hotel and faking a leg injury and an epileptic attack.

He's been in the news twice and is becoming quiet unpopular. Portrayed as just a British menace abroad, it says nothing about his years of fraud and theft.

So any news from the UK?

Hi again, thank you for the latest news. All I know is that the police are collecting all the information they have on him, and have promised me that they will be arresting him on his return. Whether this is of his own accord or because he's deported. I really appreciate you keeping me informed, I am really grateful to you.

Loved the article, thank you!!! I've passed this onto the police as I'm sure they'll be most interested in it!! Thank you also for letting the police in Vilnius know the details of the British police. Can't wait to see him back in this country!! Have you been defrauded by him also or just annoyed by the trouble he's been causing? He certainly seems to be making a nuisance of himself wherever he goes.
