Born as Jonathon Victor Morgan also known as: John Goronwy Morgan, Jonathon James

If you have seen this man please please leave a post! Please find below the key factors of his modus operandi  The summary that you will find can happen to you too!

Johnathan Morgan or Johnathon Morgan or Johnathon James is extremely charming though extremely dangerous, you will easily lower your guard to this fraudster.

Jonathon or Jonathan or John befriends people first, builds a relationship, will come across as very sincere and people believe him, then he runs away with their money.

He will claim to be wealthy and initially will be very generous, then somehow will state his credit cards accounts have been blocked thru no fault of his own.

His most common scam comes through some form of business concept or timeshare concept. He is not allowed into Australia, Customs would haul him to the side if he tried to enter. He lied on his permanent Visa to come to Australia originally, so cant get back into the country.

He owes money all over Australia, the UK, Indonesia and many other places. He has been involved in the timeshare scam many times, working within the industry in Spain, Africa, Indonesia and possibly now in Cambodia or Thailand.

As soon as he gets a sizeable pocket of money, he moves on, never to be seen again. He usually will ask for your credit card to make a small purchase and over time thru conversation will try to obtain your secure credit card information.

He has been known in the past to befriend people and take their life savings. He has ripped off pensioners  He has registered business names using other peoples Tax File Numbers, avoiding being caught.

Everyone he has befriended has been ripped off somehow, whether it be selling a car that was about to be repossessed, or some kind of business set up where he convinces a friend to go partners and he takes off as soon as he has their money.

He was involved in South Australia selling solar panels, sold large amounts, but left a quarter of a million dollar bill with the solar supplier that was never paid.

Jonathan Morgan is a total fraud

AUTHOR: Helen Miller - ()

M. Parkinson is 100% jonathon Morgan. Glad he has seen This report on him. The Only thing that m, parkinson said that is true is that he Did not actually rip off the person who started this thread, he tried but the Dutchmwas and his wife were too smart. I personally rented a house to this man and realized very quickly that every word out his mouth was a lie. He never got a chance to rip me off as I, like the Dutchman am smarter than him. Though I didn't loose money the torment of having him in my house for 2 months was enough. Prostitutes cutting through my yard, transsexuals you name it he dd it. 

Jonathon, did it occur to you the Dutchman is an honorable man and it was him who had to take all the calls as your friend when you left Bali after your latest scam. That is why he is so angry and wanted to make sure you didn't get to do this you just wouldn't understand that. Saying he is hiding from Dutch authorities is just another total lie. He is probably the most honest man I know, again you wouldn't understand that.

telling the public your ex wife that you have a child with is a stripper just shows you in a bad light not her. I would trust the word of a stripper before I would trust the word of a man that would marry a stripper, have a child with her then risk his child  finding out that daddy met mummy in a strip club. not cool.

As for me...when I heard what happened I laughed so hard, I warned everyone you were not what or who you seemed. I love been right. But I laughed the hardest at the pitiful amount of money you got, really not a good effort.

Charming Conman....or just conman

AUTHOR: Bald Steve - ()

Just found this site after knowing John for about 3 years. When I met John I thought he was a great guy. We used to drink together in Jersey and mess around when he came back to see his family here. I went to his dads funeral that is how well I know john.  He came back last year in autum and told me his life in Australia had gone wrong which I believed.
Now I dont believe anything he told me. Not just because of this site.

What I now know is he has left jersey in a car he has stolen. He might be in England now or france. That is true.
I know he was working in jersey for 6 months as an employee. Steve Beldon australian is wrong to say he set up businesses because I met the owner of the business and it isnt john morgan. I think john owes this man money as well which is just what john does he gets people confident in him and then he strikes. He has answers for everything. But it is all lies.

John told me he had made lots of money in Australia and Norway but that the tax man was chasing him now.

John made up the story he tells about having his wallet stolen by a girl in jersey; he lied to me about being given a car; he lied to me about his money; he owes me some money (not a lot) but he also owes money all over the isle of jersey. I have seen him use someone elses credit card and I dont think they know.

If I saw john tomorrow, id be pleased to see him because he is good fun and I would shake his hand. But he is a con man and a very, very good one. He has shared some of his stories with me over a jar or two and I will never tell anyone else, but anyone who reads this website must know john is a wanted criminal who evades the law very well.

Id like to help you find him but you wont for a very long time and I am sorry if you have losd money from him. You will never see it again.

Chameleon Morgan

AUTHOR: Cynthia - ()

I have just read the article entitled chameleon Morgan and am in complete agreement, he has definately posted this himself, if there is indeed a real M Parkinson I feel great pity for him that he has not seen the true colours of Mr Morgan I am sure given time all will become evident and will regret the day that he considered John Morgan to be a human being, the more that is posted on this site the better to try to ensure than hopefully anyone that comes into contact with him takes him for the disgusting individual he is.

Timeshare Scams

AUTHOR: IsabellaP - ()

Almost everything related to timeshares turns out to be a scam! I hope they find this guy before he continues scamming innocent people. Ive heard from him before, i would rather stay very far away from him. These are some good articles from Mexican Timeshare Solutions on how  people like him operate and what to do if you were scammed:

Chameleon Morgan

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

Having met John Morgan and been subjected to his scams I would think that the post by M.Parkinson is quite probably the work of conman John Morgan. In my experience he would have no problem with assuming another identity and defaming someone else to give himself time to run and begin a new scam. There is evidence including current police reports of his activities in Indonesia should anyone need in bringing this criminal to justice. 

If you are currently in dealings with John Morgan do not take him on face value and do not give him any money or details that would allow him to access credit cards etc. He is extremely good at befriending people and accessing details in friendly conversation.

In recent times he has been invoved in setting up businesses in Jersey under the names of Trade Deals and Waterless Media (phone numbers and addresses available).

Jonathan Morgan or whoever he claims to be.

AUTHOR: Cynthia - ()

Jonathan Morgan is pleasant, good company and generous, however behind this pretence and I can assure you that this is what it is, you will find the true character to be a devious accomplished fraudster with absolutely no morals.

I am unsure of how the previous commenter M Parkinson can be so sure of his impeccable character, he has obviously been charmed by one of his many personalities and to date there is no proof of any of the comments on this report however if Mr Morgan was indeed innocent, where is his defence posted as ample opportunity is given to repair.

If you are reading this report and believe you know this man by any of the names listed above, please post your comments to protect further individuals.

False Information


I have been a friend of Jonathan Morgan's for many years and can state with absolute certainty that the information filed by the complainant is both misinformed and highly inflamatory.  Firstly you haven't even spelt his name correctly.  Furthermore the author has used hacking tactics to illicit information about my contacts and then sent out a blanket email with a link to all my contacts. I believe that is illegal and against international law.

The Author has collected malicious information from an ex-wife based in Australia.  Her name is Christine James a former stripper in Australia. Hardly the source of reliable information.

The Author himself is a Dutch citizen hiding from the law in Bali ( Harald Janssen or Jenssen) and runs a rather odd company called bpoints I am given to understand.

Jonathan has never done anything to this man that could be conceived as wrong.  But he has embarked on a crusade to destroy him as a result of mis-information. If you want the truth please don't hesitate to contact me in writing.
