GRUB STREET THAILAND – Goodbye Sweetheart! Goodbye Mate! and Pattaya’s mysterious flash car importer


Flying Sporran’s Weekend Ramble

(NB If you have not been following the chronicles of con man Brian Goudie,. aka Goldie I am afraid this will not mean much to you – but you can Google him but briefly he is a former convict known as Brian Goldie who has reinvented himself as a British barrister and former officer in the Royal Marines and is the star of a TV doc called ‘Brian Goldie -Swindler Scot’)

Fake barrister Brian Goudie is celebrating the fact that some of his closest friends are either in jail or, he claims, about to be put in jail.

Top of the list is a young woman called Nang, his former girlfriend, who lived with him in the ‘Jaggy Thistle’ in Jomtien, which he acquired on the death bed of Ulster drugs trafficker Jimmy ‘Doc’ Halliday.

He had put Nang in as managing director of Halliday’s company two days after it was raided by police and found to be operating without a drinks licence.

Nang thus took the brunt of the court action which was a hefty fine. I guess she was still in love at the time but Goudie gentleman that he is reported that she was found guilty of offering illegal sex services.

And Goudie, former convict 0000274 in a Hakea Prison, West Australia,  more recently has been blogging that his ‘ex’ is a Soi 6 freelancer which is not true and I am not sure there is such a thing.

(Soi 6 is a street of short-time bars in Pattaya where I understand as a rule the women live on the premises. Its where American millionaire Bill Monson was taken by Goudie when he was trying to get him as a client)

They fell out when he brought in a second girl ‘Neung’ from Misty’s in Pattaya to live at the ‘Jaggy’ and have never seen eye to eye since.

Nang was not happy with his new demands

Neung later hopped it after which Goudie made desperate calls over Facebook (she was not answering her phone) to get her back.

His relationship with another woman called ‘Yingme’ whom he claimed was ‘his lawyer’ also crashed spectacularly.

Goudie has now started up putting pictures on Facebook of the daughter he fathered a few years ago from a young woman from Prachuap.

He told the Australian Appeals Tribunal he had no relationship with the daughter he fathered in Scotland before he went on the run over 20 years ago before Scottish Police started investigating frauds on the Royal Bank of Scotland.

It seems as a service debt Nang may have liberated contents from ‘Jaggy’ including television sets – well at least that is what he is charging her with although she was MD at the time.  He had not taken the parting well.


Goudie, jailed in Australia for six years for fraud, it appears has a habit of filming his girls as they provide a special service to him.

He also put one of those gems up on the net, it’s alleged in papers sent to Pattaya, by the TCSD.

Goudie is now claiming that the videos were on ‘stolen’ computers, forgetting his original line that someone had cracked the password for his dropbox.

And he does not explain however how the images appeared before his computers were allegedly stolen.

But never mind, he says, Pattaya Police tell him there is no case against him. We’re obviously talking to different police.

And if you ask me who is telling the truth – I can’t give an answer.

Nang and Neung join a long line of woman who have ended up less than happy with this Scots conman, who has claimed to be a barrister and officer in the Royal Marines.

Goudie also says Nang is facing multiple cases in Koh Samui.  And Goudie says police are hot on her trail. Police I spoke to however said the case is dead. Who is telling the truth? Same answer I’m afraid. This is Pattaya where justice is often decided on the basis of a pile of 1000 baht notes.

Anyway he has to get off his own charges first.

In fact when he was at the police station in Jomtien ‘finalising the cases against her’ he said he ‘heard’ that his old friend Andy Mathews was arrested in a nearby bar.

That would, I suspect, be better translated as Goudie ‘shopped ‘ him because that’s what he does to former colleagues.

In this video he talks about making money ‘like there’s no tomorrrow’ defending child sex offenders – and tells how he shopped a Briton who has since been released at the order of the Supreme Court. The Briton Ian Tracey has since been released by the Supreme Court after it declared a mistrial. Tracey had introduced Goudie to Jimmy ‘Doc’ Halliday. Goudie used Halliday’s power of attorney to take all his property when he died.

I would not take this ‘Walter Mitty’ lawyer so seriously bar for the fact that Pattaya police will fall for almost anyone wearing purple.

Goudie also appears to be delighted that his old friend Andy Mathews, from the British Midlands, has been banged up for assaulting Rolf Wilhelm Haupt, the German casino boss behind Pattaya’s Ocean Properties. But he says:

It was a shock to see Andy arrested – I know he has had some sort of disagreement with Rolf Haupt, but did not realise it was so serious to warrant being remanded in custody.”


Goudie would of course have been next in line.

Rolf Haupt?  Haupt’s company buys up in bulk apartments in new developments in Pattaya hoping to make handsome profits when the prices go up.

He was formerly in partnership with Mathews, who, well to put it frankly is not in the same league. Mathews is straight.

Mathews made two mistakes. The first and most calamitous was to lend Goudie 400,000 baht over a short period.

Goudie never paid it back. He claimed his company Alba Laws was having trouble retrieving cash from its clients. Goudie does not have a history of paying anything back voluntarily.

Mathews helped Goudie refurbish the ‘Jaggy Thistle’ pub which was going to be run by a former Pattaya Foreign Volunteer Policeman called John MacDonald.

Then a little birdie told Mathews that Goudie was, er, not an officer and a gentleman.

His law degree was fake. He was in fact a former bank teller at the Royal Bank of Scotland, which he was accused of defrauding.

And he was not an officer at all just a ‘wee jimmy’ from Falkirk, albeit a professional con man.

A furious Mathews stormed the Jaggie Thistle threatening physical violence against Goudie and Goudie took him to court.  Mathews never got his money back just this sms on the left from Goudie.

If there is one person who can describe who exactly Goudie is – well its Goldie himself.  He says it even better than the television documentary ‘Swindler Scot – Brian Goldie’ – devoted to his activities.

Mathews’ second mistake was to go into business with Haupt – considerably above his league. The inevitable happened. Mathews an amateur boxer, also gave Haupt a left hook, or right hook, I am not sure which, after he claimed Haupt swindled him out of the profits of a major property deal.

 He claimed Haupt owed him 27 million.  Whether that’s true or not I do not know. But Andy Mathews is a child of nature – quick to laugh, quick to anger.

Anyway he had used Goudie’s Alba Laws to defend himself. Not good.

Rolf Haupt

By the time the case got to court they were no longer friends…and the lawyer he hired did not even put in a defence.

Nang, who was with Goudie at the time, claims Goudie was paying Mathew’s lawyer to get him convicted.

He’s in trouble now because I understand he would not leave Haupt alone and was active on the internet issuing threats.

What’s interesting about Haupt though are his businesses.  One is putting large sums of cash into property in Pattaya – and the other was importing flash cars.

Guess who his adviser was. Yes. Step forward Brian Goudie aka Brian Goldie.

He set up an arrangement with two Hungarians selling fast cars acquired in the UK. I do not know the origin of these cars but there is material floating about with details of their engine numbers etc.

But  I am not sure this is not an occupation that foreigners are allowed to take part in.  I believe the DSI have been doing an investigation into car importers.

Goudie is currently of course on bail for cheating an 76-year-old American woman out of 7.9 million baht. He has secured a stay of execution so, he says, he can pay it back.  I love these Thai laws which support crooks if they repay what they have stolen.

This last bit was written by Goudie as ‘legal counsel’  – in an email dated Aug 1 2011

God it’s sh*tty down there.  But some good things come in large packages

And there is a lot of money coming into Thailand to be laund  invested in Pattaya’s real estate market.

Anyway here’s a clue for the local plod. This is what Goudie should look like.

  1. I've just seen on the Bam Pots blog page that I'm to receive a criminal summons….I wonder Brian…would that be the one your mate, the bloated old criminal, tried to push through Pattaya court illegally?

  2. What a piece of work this guy is! Not content with defrauding the dying, ripping off the elderly and snitching on innocent people, he now gleefully gloats about ratting out his ex-girlfriend, accusing her of stealing things out of a building he himself scammed off a dying man. What an odorous, slimy, bottom feeder.

    We can only speculate how many other people he and Noyes have ratted out to their police mates to curry favours. There's nothing lower than a cheese eating snitch, the guy who keeps his freedom by giving up others. There can be no doubt the fact these guys are still walking free is probably only because they have ratted out others or are active informers.

    Goudie/Goldie/Boru or whatever his name is currently, is caught red-handed on video admitting he has snitched out a completely innocent man. That man served serious time just because of Brian's big mouth and malicious nature. Every time we hear about Brian it seems he is at the police station whining and trying lay bogus charges on somebody. I must remember to send him a big block of cheese for Christmas.

    1. Sorry Weapon, but when it comes to evil, there is another Pattaya expat that out does Brian. As far as we know, Brian has never bashed a woman, and there is nothing to suggest he is a kiddy fiddler. He has never been accused of rape, and some people are saying of his time in jail he may have been a victim.
      This other expat had been at it for years. A sexual predator. His former driver lost count of the women he attacked and raped. His MOD included showing photos of himself with police, judges and influential people, then using this to threaten victims. He is aware that Thai police do not have a good record of assisting rape victims.
      He would also lure young women from foreign countries with promises of work and good salaries. Then before pay day he would put it on them. These girls were dirt poor and had already promised to send money to their families etc, so not technically rape, but similar. If they refused he would slash their pay, telling them their work was not up to standard, and throw them out on the street. Amazingly his common law wife knew about all this and even sided with the expat to threaten the victims. Perhaps she was worried about her own monthly allowance.
      This expat also had a thing for under aged girls. Sometimes from a bar in Jomtien where he and his best friend were regulars. The expat liked drinking Black and Coke. But forever the opportunist he would also attack anyone if the opportunity presented himself. He would use his photo collection with police and influential people to silence his victims.
      This expat also had a history of attacking women, sexually and physically in his own country with numerous complaints from various women being made.
      This expat like Gouldie is also a thief, conman and all round turd also. But his other behavior makes him worse than Brian. Much, much worse.
      Another cunning stunt for this expat would be to set up others with underaged children and then hold this against them.
      Many people in the past have tried to bring this expat down and failed. But that was before an investigative reporter nicknamed 'Goldenballs' got on his case. This expat now is expected to serve jail time, not for his rapes, but jail time none the less.
      Goldenballs has already been awarded for his bravery fighting the Nazis, this expat is so stupid that he presented an easy target for Goldenballs.
      Goldenballs is aware of this expats evil deeds but is unable to write about it due to lack of witnesses, lack of confidence in the Thai legal system, etc. But as Somchai told us, there are many ways to skin a cat.

  3. I told Andrew that through my own investigations I thought Noyes was far worse than Brian. Brian is an emotional wreck, the product of a dysfunctional family. His emotional abandonment as a child is shown by his transient lifestyle, his inability to hold a functional relationship with the opposite sex and his inability to hold down a job without stealing from his employer.

    His malefic personality is revealed by the fact he befriends people, gains their trust, then ruthlessly steals or scams them for everything he can get his hands on. He is like the abused child, living a life where he goes from one disaster to the next. He is like a virus infecting everybody he come in contact with. He's too old now to fix, he has created so much enmity and hate against him it is inevitable he comes to a violent or sudden end.

    Noyes on the other hand is a psychopath. A dangerous and evil entity that has no conscious and shows no remorse for his actions. He will exploit, lie, cheat and steal without any feelings of guilt. God knows what he has done we are not aware of. I've heard to rumours too, he seem capable of unending evil.

    1. Yep, I was wrong. Brian Wright does indeed have a history of violence against women like the other 2 idiots. And there is no blaming the violent depravation of his prison time as his history goes back before that. Real justice that, slapping his bitch around then get sentenced to years in jail where he became somebody elses bitch and plaything. Couldn't have happened to anyone more deserving.
      It is incredible how similar Drew and Brian are.
      Then we have the 'safe sex room' operator who tortured his Asian hotties.
      So all three a big, tough guys with women, but is there any record of either of them fighting a man?
      I know of at least 3 people who have wanted have wanted to play rough with the American fake, and they are tough, but due to his snitching were reluctant. Now the police are definately not behind him he has a lot to worry about.
