BAT CAVE MAN OR JOKER?
A judge in Pattaya, Thailand, has ruled that there was insufficient evidence to prove that Drew Walter Noyes, a man exposed by a newspaper in the United States for fraud, and not being able to recognise what the truth is, was guilty of libelling a local businessman and Christmas Santa by claiming he dealt in drugs.
That allegation was made in an email to a google blog site. Mr. Noyes founder of the ‘Pattaya Times’ newspaper, said in his defence that anyone could hijack his email in his office.
Today we look at some of the messages that have come out of computers apparently used by a man who once claimed to be the only American lawyer licensed to practice in Thailand. And we ask – Que?
A mysterious character using the email address of firstname.lastname@example.org has been terrorising foreigners in Pattaya with internet threats claiming he is high society while his critics would soon receive their just deserts.
Posing as the real Drew Noyes the founder of the Pattaya Times newspaper, an imposter comes out at night from what he calls his ‘Bat Cave’ – a room with a bed, an open shower and a chrome pole – and becomes a man on a mission.
Apparently many times he has managed to sneak into the offices of PAPPA Law in the eastern Thai resort of Pattaya, where he goes into a ‘frenzy’and lets loose attacking perceived enemies, sometimes threatening them with his ‘ínfluential friends’ among whom he claims Pattaya judges.

This has caused intense embarrassment to the real Drew Walter Noyes, who describes himself as an upstanding member of the community, devoted family man (He has had four families) and the recipient of countless medals and awards.
He told Pattaya Provincial Court that rogue staff must have hijacked his email.
But could they be one and the same person?
Who is this imposter? Or who are they? What drives someone to such actions? Could you be a victim?
Take this for instance.
Here someone posing as the real Drew Walter Noyes, actually offers a man who is going to pay his U.S. Property Tax Bill the use of his ‘Bat Cave’ – also known as ‘The Shag-pad’.
The man, an American Indian (native American) finds he has bought 10 per cent of the Pattaya Times for 1 million baht. That million baht is now worth nothing.
There is similarity between the email above and this below sent to Ivan Pedro Schiffer, a Brazilian employed as a reporter on the Pattaya Times who tipped off an American. Michael Green, who had handed over a lot of cash to Drew Noyes, that he was being ripped off.
‘You piece of shit. You want to play rough! You’d better be tough you spineless lowlife. I can tell you directly I am after you because you betrayed me and have no loyalty. Let’s see. You lied to XXXX about me so when I see you behind bars I can spit on you..unless something happens to you first.
‘Your drug arrest is being sent by my police friend to Horseshoe Point. Got a copy of a letter to you from my friend at the USDA. Much much more to come.
‘Make sure to tell whoever is stupid enough to lend you 20,000 for your overstay that they won’t get it back because immigration will hold you for other reasons. Still laughing? “
Mr. XXXXXX XXXXXX had invested in Cupid’s Gentleman’s Lounge in Pattaya – opening soon.
‘PS: You might want to ditch your sim cards. They ping making you easier to locate. Better hurry out. Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai. Ohhh My!’
When she complained with another Filipina, both were thrown out into the street out of their Noyes accommodation in Keha Mansions, Thepprasit Road, Pattaya, and had to rescued by two foreigners.
Of course the man using email@example.com was fantasising about his policeman specialist in computer crimes, The Head of MICT Investigations gave evidence against the real Drew Noyes at the Santa Claus libel case.
Wife beating? Pictures? Scott Gold of the Wilmington Morning Star who wrote the investigation into Drew Noyes was not fired by the way. The paper received no complaint and in any case Gold, now Science Reporter on the LA Times did not so much write about property but Noyes’ alleged lies, frauds and assaults on women.
(Disclaimer: The above email contains some allegations for which no proof has been provided. In those cases you should take the allegations as being untrue. As an example Niels Colov, a Dane, was not convicted of blackmail and extortion in Denmark – a charge which Drew Noyes is on trial for in Pattaya at the moment. Niels Colov, CEO of the Pattaya People Media Group, and leader of the Pattaya Police Volunteers was convicted of pimping, and offences of violence and dishonesty and received a jail sentence)
Well that was two years ago and she still has not seen any cases of substance from the real Drew Noyes. Thais don’t gossip?
The radio station did not of course apologise. If you wish to listen to the interview it is here: or at the end of this story.
But then again the author of this site has received some remarkable emails too from firstname.lastname@example.org. Many years ago I was convicted (yes in Pattaya court) of libelling a Scots businessman prominent in Boyz Town in Pattaya. That conviction was overturned on appeal and I was vindicated of both charges. I noticed Noyes got hold of the information and was misusing it. He failed to mention the dismissal – no surprises there. I duly sent him the record. This was Bat Cave man’s reply.
|Some mistake surely?|
