Ok, anybody who was scammed on here by NICOLAS HEWIIT AKA smithy needs to be aware of this situation!
I myself was scammed out of £150 by this person, today a police officer arrived at my house asking me to sign a statement declaring that i was withdrawing my original statement from the case against said person. This came about because i am not able to appear in court on the day he is due to be prosecuted. If i had not withdrawn my statement the court would have prosecuted me for failure to appear at court after being summonds to appear as a witness for the prosecutuion!
Basically this means that anyone else who left a statement against NICOLAS HEWIIT WHO IS NOT PREPARED TO GO TO DERBYSHIRE AND APPEAR IN COURT TO BACK THEIR STATEMENT UP WILL BE TOLD TO WITHDRAW THEIR STATEMENT OR BE PROSECUTED BY THE COURT FOR FAILURE TO APPEAR!
This is a complete joke as all my evidence was straight forward and clear and they have a good case against him.
Now as far as getting any money back you stand little or no chance of that and agin it seems that he is free to do whatever scams he feels he wants to and the police can do nothing.
