Flying Sporran’s Weekend Diary

Quite some time ago when I was on the trail of Ray Teret, the aggressive child sexual abuser who picked up and raped under aged girls with now infamous DJ and television personality Jimmy Savile I came across a photo of ‘Ugli Ray’ as he was known on the airwaves after he graduated from a course at the David Cavanagh Success Academy in Pattaya.

David Cavanagh bills himself as as the world’s number one internet coach and mentor as well as as well as being called, he says, an "executive entrepreneur", "growth strategist", "bestselling author & consultant".

Actually also in the story was Drew Noyes, publisher of the Pattaya Times, and well known rogue on this website, who fled while on bail, having been sentenced to 2 years in jail in Pattaya for extortion.  (I’m not going to repeat the Drew Noyes biography, but for those who do not know just Googling him with the word extortion should bring up enough). 

The Pattaya Times had been heavily promoting Cavanagh and at the time I wrote a small story about it.

This was followed by an indignant Mr.Cavanagh who objected being linked to the most reviled man in the UK after Jimmy Savile (but Savile died before he could be taken to trial) and he also objected to my statement that the course was ‘sponsored’ by Drew Noyes.

I could see his point of view. He would not necessarily know the background of these two devious manipulators and the word I should have written ‘promoted by’ the Pattaya  Times, not sponsored by.

I duly removed Australian David Cavanagh’s name from the piece and removed the word sponsored.
Ray Teret has of course since been jailed for 25 years and the judge sentencing said he expected Teret to spend the rest of his natural life behind bars, having been convicted of 7 rapes and  indecent assaults.

He had denied all charges telling the judge: “'I only make love. Not sex, sir. I only make love with ladies who want to make love with me.'

This month in Pattaya saw the birth pf a new website ‘Pattaya’.  

It rather struck me because Pattaya is the last place on earth I would get married, or worse, go on honeymoon.

Before the site had even finished being constructed there appeared its first testimonial. It was written by a certain David Cavanagh.

Pattaya Wedding Planners over delivered massively for Nisarat and I. They promised they'd help us with everything, yet they exceeded our expectations. They are professionals, and we're so glad we chose them to make our special day so wonderful... David Cavanagh.
Now that was quick. Pattaya Wedding Planners does not as yet have any wedding packages up on site. What on earth was he talking about?

Then I saw who the site was registered to.

I found  this other recommendation. 

Its from no less than Drew Noyes himself in exile in the United States, possibly bartering his return to sin city. and using that old 'photo op' picture of himself with Thailand's Princess Sirindorn..

I was hoping I had done my last piece on him but I just could not help chuckling. Is Drew planning yet another wedding, perhaps to the nanny who recently gave birth?

I sent Cavanagh a message. No reply. I phoned the numbers on his site in Australia and the United States.

Both had the same voice message apologising as he was probably on stage or giving someone advice.

Having wedding planners is very much an American thing, though its catching in the UK I understand.  Thais tapping into this market? I think not.

Anyone getting married? Cheapest way is the Drew Noyes way. Just book a photographer and hire a suit for a half a day No need to register or under Thai law for a lawyer when things go wrong - as it did with these women below.


  1. I sent Cavanagh a message on FB. He blocked me. So I sent him an e mail asking why he activly assocuates with paedophiles and extortionists. Id have thought in his line of work a clean good guy image would be essentual. Seemingly its not!
    He replied extreamly quickly with what I believe to be a pre arranged e mail but with a few lines where names and reasons can be altered It was all pap and crap justifying his despicable choices in associates and continued association with the great old fraud....Noyes
    Cavanagh is as bad or even worse than they are. He had the chance to step back and disassociate him self from that criminal circle. Makes you wonder if your money is safe in his hands....dont it?

  2. Here is the video he has made for Pattaya Wedding Planners...

  3. David Cavanagh has written in to confirm that he has indeed used the service and even though he is not getting married in Pattaya. " My children, my fiancee and I have all had our pre wedding photos taken, gifts supplied, preparations done, and they have given us an unbelievable service.

    So I wrote my testimonial for them as it's definitely warranted.

    We aren't getting married in Pattaya. We're getting married in my fiancee's home town. But the outfits have been supplied to us from Pattaya. Although even if we did decide to get married in Pattaya, that's a personal choice of ours (and the thousands of people who get married in Pattaya or Chonburi each and every year).

    He registered the site and is doing Facebook promotions for it. Noyes should be regarded merely as someone who clicked on his Facebook page, he said. I am unable to provide Cavanagh's letter in full as it is not addressed to me and much of it referes to a conversation with a third party.

  4. Wedding planning is big business in Japan. Faux Christian chapels and even fake Caucasian priests who can command up to $200 per ceremony (up to 8 weddings can be done a deal in a single venue). Cavanagh could perhaps target Japanese couples, though I doubt Pattaya would be considered a "romantic" destination for them.

    1. He says he just registered the website and is a client

    2. Certainly a place for pre-wedding fotos though

    3. The first thing I would want to know is who my wedding planner is before the Paypal exchange or bank transfer to Hong Kong!

  5. Guilt by association? I guess if having your picture taken with Drew Noyes was a crime there would be a lot of cases open but there is a certain "looks like a duck" scent here for some reason. Would be interesting to know who actually owns the service. There are many services I have used and would recommend but I have never been motivated by their outstanding service to buy them a website then maintain and build it for them.

    Off topic, the current beating to death of the handicapped Thai by a pack is garnering some attention. Also noticing that there was an 18 year old implicated and they aren't releasing his name due to "underage" I thought 18 was the limit? I wonder who his daddy is?

    1. according to the Post aren't all their daddies police?

    2. Yes, I read that the one's named dads were all police that is what makes me wonder how "big" the father is of the one not named.

  6. Cost me $3000 Canadian for over 300 guests at our wedding in Phuket in 2008, a fraction of what it would have cost in Canada at the time..

    I had 3 friends there - the rest were from her side..

    And there's your useless Trivia for the day!

  7. I see Drew Noyes is keeping in with the police at Carolina Beach.
