Rod Bowling Arrives in Atlanta

How did you find me?
  • "How did you find me?"

The serial scam artist sometimes known as Rod Bowling has been reported in Atlanta. As detailed in numerous Scene items since 2005, Bowling — also known as Rod Marshall, Rod Ericky, and Rod Boiling — earned a bad reputation in Cleveland, selling raffle tickets for Hummers that never existed, offering hot young women $60,000-a-year-marketing jobs, and promoting opportunities to star in a reality TV show. But he was just getting warmed up.

In June, Bowling was posting Craig’s List ads under the business name Media Planet, looking for help selling tickets to a non-existent fundraising event at the downtown Hyatt. Scene reached him via phone, but he claimed he was living in Arizona, and this alleged wrongdoer Rod Bowling had stolen his identity.
