Some 22 months after being deported to Brazil Ivan Pedro Schiffer, a reporter with the now defunct ‘Pattaya Times’ newspaper, is back in South East Asia, and seeking justice.

Schiffer was an assistant to Drew Noyes, a controversial American, who has sued and lost cases against the author of this site six times. He was also his filmographer. And he knew Drew Noyes’ scams.

Don’t waste your money!

A couple of months prior to his deportation Schiffer had warned in an email to another American, an active serviceman in a pivotal military role, that he should not buy anything from Drew Noyes.

Noyes, who published the Pattaya Times with Wanrapa Boonsu and who together with her faces charges of fraud and extortion in Pattaya, reacted with a vengeance, after the American reported the email to his ex-school mate Noyes.

Noyes report on Schiffer – trash journalism

He published a report in the Pattaya Times describing Schiffer as a drug user and was producing illegal cold pressed oils in Thailand and was wanted by the US authorities and Federal Drugs Authority. None of it was true. Then he sent Schiffer the following email:

‘Want to play rough – you’d better be tough!’

 ‘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.
‘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?’

The American ignored Schiffer’s warning to his cost.

Schiffer meanwhile decided to leave for Cambodia and pay the 20,000 maximum fine for over-stay. Normally this would be accepted – but as Noyes predicted it was not.

The cash was taken and he was taken to the Immigration Centre in Bangkok and deported to Brazil anyway.

This is the latest communication from Ivan Pedro Schiffer:

‘Dear Andrew,  

‘This was how Drew directed people to the article in the Pattaya Times newspaper in which he defames my person and name. 


‘First he “hacked” my original e-mail box at ORGANICSCONSULTING@YAHOO.COM, then moved  all my contacts (270)into a newly ORGANICSCONSULTING@GMAIL.COM created by him. 

‘Next he sent following e-mail to everyone of my contacts with the  following lines. 

Subject: Problems in Pattaya
Do not worry. My factory will remain open even when I am in jail. All of the seeds I bought were safe. Let me know if the US and Thai investigators contact you. The police have my laptop and all of my records. 
This article is completely false. I want to tell you about this before you see it somewhere else.   

‘1)This means he was impersonating me falsely and making people believe that I was in prison,  

‘2) also that the Police had a laptop that belonged to me.  

‘I never had a lap top, I always used Internet Cafes.

‘3) That I was under investigation by American and Thai Police, that was also not true. 

‘4) That the Police had all my records. There was no such thing, 

‘I asked a friend to help identify where such messages were coming from and after receiving the answer  I wrote to Google warning of the illegal use of my name and illegal creation of an e-mail box in my name, also similar to my original e-mail name which I had for over 10 years with Yahoo and Hot Mail but never used GMAIL. 

‘It is very easy to prove that the E-Mail was created at the nearly same date as the published article in the Pattaya Times. 

‘Also the information given to GMAIL to create the E-Mail must be verified.
I do not know if he used my name or another name, if he used my name which other info he wrote on the application regarding my identity.

Drew Noyes-  snitch?

‘I assume that all this is criminal but since I was obliged to leave Thailand and had to reorganize my life in Brazil also look after my mother who is now 91 years old and worried about the events she had read on the false E-mail and Newspaper article, I decided to wait until the proper time to work on the case.

‘Fortunately soon after Drew’s manipulations started to get public with his arrest and other accusations I thought it was better to wait a while until the cases unfolded in court and through your reports. 

‘Demoralized and lost’ 

‘Now the moment is mature, Drew’s dishonest and dirty character is in the open, he is being judged and condemned by the 99% of Pattaya’s international society, seeing from the comments written  by respectable people of the International Community on your column it shows how demoralized and lost he became. 

‘I am not sure what influence he might have had in cancelling  my visa, people assume that he boasted to be the “father” of that act and considered it a victory. 

‘This must also be verified. If Immigration acted on his manipulation alone than I believe I do have the right to request a revision. 

‘The only fact that Immigration could claim was that I had overstayed my Visa, but that usually is accepted and the payment of the fine regulates the fault. 

Immigration Detention Centre – Bangkok – National Post
Still not open

‘Also that after my detention at the Poi Pet border leaving Thailand and paying the 20.000 baht fine, I was taken to the Immigration Detention in Bangkok.


‘ I was not allowed to return to fetch my belongings, my Oil Factory was ransacked, all my property, machinery, Office Material and Furniture, even the Electrical Three Fase Central and other valuable appliances were taken.  

‘A whole library of related books and research work are gone. Seven years of work just evaporated.  Other electronic material at the deposit room also stolen.   

‘As you well know this act of “vengeance” was his answer for the warning I gave to the American in Spain to be careful and not to invest money in any project with Drew, that it was dangerous and certainly a bad decision. 

High end? 

‘The project was to buy and reform a building at Pattaya Land Soi 3 to create a high- end massage parlor and thematic rooms for expensive sex services.  (Cupids Soi 13/3 and Jomtien Beach Soi 7)

‘The agreed amount was around 14 million Baht as initial investment.
The American kept sending me E-mails asking about the progress of the reform, I inspected regularly the building and never saw any progress, just an initial cleaning, the junk remained on the side walk for months

‘I regularly asked Drew in order to inform the American,. He always said that next week it would start, when I realized that it was a scam I wrote a long letter and directed the American to Andrew Drummond’s website which unfortunately I did not know of its existence before. 

Excellent investigative work – the real spirit of a true journalist 

‘He started also threatening me with nasty SMS messages. These I regularly forwarded to you. From there on you know the facts and reported accurately on your articles. 

Keha Condo

‘I give you open , total freedom and permission to use and publish any material, written, recorded or filmed by me in your articles, court cases or in any form you wish, at any time, in order to warn, expose and protect people of the International and National community against the dangers this man, Drew Walter Noyes. 

‘Also I take the opportunity to thank you for the excellent Investigative Journalistic work you have been reporting in the last few years on every criminal elements who are infiltrated in our middle. Not only the effort but also the courage to accomplish such task. That is the real spirit of a true Journalist. 

‘My very best regards and wishes of success’.

Ivan Pedro J.Schiffer

COMMENT: The Immigration Bureau are perfectly entitled to deport anyone they so fit if they have broken Thailand’s immigration laws as Mr. Schiffer did. So he will not have a case. But there is nothing transparent about what happened to him.  Immigration Police believed Mr. Noyes was a respectable businessmen, so has the Mayor of Pattaya, Crime Suppression Division, etc. Lets hope the penny drops soon. While Schiffer claims that the American invested 14 million baht into the sex business my information is different. He bought a condo off Drew Noyes and Wanrapa Boonsu for 5-6 million Thai baht. This was a National Housing Authority condo in Keha Tower, Thepprasit Road, Pattaya-Jomtien. True value nearer 1 million.
He also lodged cash with Noyes but refused to let it be invested in a sex trade venture.
As for Cupids – the one in Pattayaland is in its third year of a ten year lease and Noyes has not managed to open either one yet.  



    1. I wonder if Michael Green will be able to recover any of his cash….let's see, Drew has 'conned' fellow expats, people who worked for him, now school friends….

      If the Brazilian was Drew's assistant I would imagine he knows about more than just the Michael Green caper….

    2. Right Tim, not only that he knows more, I remember DN frantically tried to trace this photographers old work, which includes VDO footage from his speeches in the Pattaya City Expats Club where he was lying that he was invited by the royalty to safe Thailand. This footage is now safe as far as I understand. I hope it will bu used one day by Ms Kanokwan, who is working on a Lese Majeste case against DN. Now that would be a fitting end to this liar.

  1. Who are,but more importantly who are the pathetic individuals letting Noyes scam them incessantly?

    You have been wronged,it is not hard to seek justice and not using the Thai legal channels either,Christ almighty ,Noyes would be skinned and hung up by the ankles if he even came within a million miles of scamming me.

  2. Glad to hear Ivan is back. Can you tell us where my husband and I can get some of his wonderful oils. Nice to see this site now has lots of advertising and nearly 300,000 readers, something the fantasy man Drew Noyes could only daydream about.
    It is ironic that this one man blog's popularity owes it to Drew Noyes fantasies, lies, extortions etc.
    I do recall Ivan wrote to you a while back detailing an American who invested in the failed TOPS scheme of Drew Noyes, but that Drew had set him up with a "young girl" and had threatened to expose him to his wife if he made trouble. If Ivan had meant underaged girl, which indeed it did appear to be,(I may well be wrong in assuming this) I was wondering at the time if it was Drew's best friend and godfather of Drew's children, Brian Wright, who is up on charges of raping a 13 or 14 year old girl, who had lost his money to Drew. Or is there another American out there who needs to be caught? I assume that there is no concrete proof of this as Andrew Drummond had deleted the name though it appears that Ivan named him.
    I have never forgotten this and wondered if Ivan reported the American, as surely this would be the right thing to do. I hope you did Ivan.
    Other posters have also "hinted" on this site that a bar in the Jomtien Complex beach where Drew is a regular with Brian also catered to pedophiles. Now I don't know, and don't pretend to know if this is true but it does make me wonder why Drew tries to sue this blog/andrew Drummond for petty issues such as a gay mock up photoshopped photo of Drew in a leather pouch and a host of other petty claims, but Drew seems to be avoiding this issue all together. If it was me, this would be of my major concern, not some silly photo. Unless of course it was true. Is Drew hiding something. Was Ivan telling the truth in that letter or was it a form of revenge for having him be deported. Ivan will certainly read this comment so a response would be appreciated. And also the right thing to to Ivan.
    As so far as Michael Green losing 250,000 whether in a sex business or a condo (depending on who you want to believe), it serves himself right. Ivan was doing the right thing by him by warning him and then he turns around and grasses on Ivan, which ruined his business, his life and left me without the life extending oils that are not available anywhere else in Thailand.
    This tale must be a lesson to all who get involved with Drew Noyes. Like many others before, Ivan's business is ruined, Michael has lost his retirement and the unnamed American who cheated on his wife with a younng girl has also been swindled.
    And recently my husband was emailed a copy of a signed court document/ statement from Drew's American wife, who swore that he beat her up on many occassions and spat in her face, which is what he threatened to do to Ivan. Once again, this has been detailed on this blog, but Drew claims to be more upset for posting a fake gay photo, and calling his plastic faced pimp friend, "a pimp" and of saying bad things about Thailand, whatever that is supposed to mean.
    Another interesting point is in the recent video, it shows Drew up to his old trick of using his influential friends to fix up Drummond. Well nearly 2 years on Andrew Drummond just gets bigger, better, more powerful. Guess Drew's imaginary friends don't really give a toss about him. These threats may well work on people who have lost money and women who have been assaulted but the simple fact is that Drummond is simply to good for Drew, too smart, too honest, too strong willed. I, like many others, am a great fan.
    Love to hear from Ivan.
    ps. Drew, you might want to check Kung's phone messages, it seems everybody but you knows of her new "interest". Sorry Kung, but you deserve it. You watch and help Drew's trickery.

  3. This is a terrible story and reveals the damage and destruction one lunatic is capable of when not held to account for his actions. Anybody who has not run up against a psychopath may wonder how people get caught up in their web of lies and deceit.

    These people are usually very clever at cultivating people as victims. They accumulate and mine information from people that can be used against them whilst giving up little about themselves, except for lies and bullshit stories. They get dirt on people and secretly file it away for when needed.

    When exposed, they won't admit wrong doing and will become vindictive. This poor guy probably realised what he was dealing with, but found it hard to extract himself out of the situation.
    I have long experience with people like Noyes and you must know what you are dealing with and what they are capable of doing. Most people are simply shocked and stunned at how devious these people are and just don't have the ability to fight back. They just don't have that viciousness in them.

    A lot of people talk about violent revenge, but I warn against it and remind people of the saying "he who seeks revenge should dig two graves" -the second one being for himself. I've been down that road myself and there are a lot of ramifications to consider. Violent retribution should always be the last option. "Revenge is a dish best eaten cold" is my new motto. Also "the pen is mightier than the sword."

    It will be far more rewarding to see the law deal with the likes of Noyes and Goldie. Hanks should be prosecuted for false testimony as well. Hopefully all accounts will be paid in full.
