His worst nightmare

Lima, OH

#23 Apr 21, 2013
Jimbo as he liked to be nicknamed. tried to strangle me he has a rap sheet over a inch thick. He lies, cheats and will take anything from you that you will let him have. Beware of him. He is from Ohio he did kill his own mother, he changed his name when he got married. He tried to kill me and had hurt others in Ohio also stealing along the way. I know I was not the only victim but I want to warn others he likes to tell stories. Im sadden he is using us Gods children for his evil ways. I thank GOD every day that he saved my from this mans hands. If you want more please dont be afraid to email me [email protected]

Amazing story to follow via the web, regardless of whether HIS ACTUAL tales are true or not. I gave him a ride today from Seminole, Ok to Ada, Ok. And following his "Google" history, he really has been across the US. From what I gather he must be a vagrant, or a gypsy. He said to me today that "His story was an interesting one, and I would read about it one day..." He was correct, I have read it today... and added to it. I offered him no money, but I did offer him dinner which he declined. He had no where in Ada, OK in particular to go, and I let him out of the car outside of town. His story today was that he was heading towards home "Las Vegas, NV" I wished him safe travels and that was that.

It is because he is a liar and con man. Type in "walking preacher Jim or James bowman" online and u will see quite a bit of stuff. He has been walking back and forth across the country for years and years!

With his apparent criminal history, I don't think anyone should be picking this man up.

Just meet Mr Bowman Sunday at my church in Sallisaw, Ok. Same story most of you got walking from Kentucky to Vegas. Head security guard in a casino, wallet was lost durring an altercation. I must admit I did go out of my way to help him. I did tell others that I had doubts on his stories but I did what I felt in my heart was the right thing to do... As a Christian that is all I can do. I do pray for this man and would like to here more stories about him.

He is a very nice man. When we met him we really liked him and he talked a good story. He stayed one night with my son and ate Easter dinner with us. Then I got to thinking about his story and found it hard to believe so I looked him up on the internet. When I found out about what he did and confronted him he did not deny any of it and started to get his stuff together and leave. We had a 1 year old granddaughter and didn't feel safe with him in my house. We gave him $20 and some food and drove him to the main road. I wish that he could find peace within himself to settle down. He was a very friendly man.
