On run with a warrant out for his arrest for extortion in Thailand Drew Noyes, 60, has changed his Facebook profile to show himself hobnobbing with Thai Royalty, a former US Ambassador to Thailand, and an Immigration Police Colonel.

This may by a ruse by the ‘selfie hunter’* to impress his new friends in Wilmington, North Carolina, but it will not impress the judges in Pattaya where he slipped off his Royalist yellow shirt to become a red shirt to impress local politicians.

He took the red shirt off quickly AGAIN when the Thai military came to power- and in one case taken against him brought a long a military colonel to speak out in his defence to announce that he was holding a seminar on the virtues of the military government.

Do not be surprised it he turns up in the Trump camp soon.

The Appeal Court judgement comes up on March 8th.

He is appealing against a conviction with his Thai common law wife Wanrapa Boonsu, for attempting to extort the Thonglor Clinic in Jomtien, Pattaya, on Thailand’s eastern seaboard out of 7 million Thai baht – otherwise the clinic faced, he said, a raid by police when illegal substances would certainly be found and he would receive very negative publicity in his Pattaya Times ‘newspaper’

Meanwhile in Wilmington, North Carolina, it is understood he has now used the power of attorney he made his first wife Nittaya Chaiyasit Noyes sign, when he put property in her name – to sell the property on the open market.

Incidentally, Rose, the interpreter he used during the extortion case who has been sending him good luck messages while he has been on the lam has now turned up in a photo taken by the famous Canadian conman Harris Black ( check out

Harris, (who incidentally has now been confirmed as the author of the diary entries shown on this earlier post, describes her as his ‘Thai sister’.  He may need her help soon.

*Strictly speaking Noyes is not really a selfie hunter as he always brought along his own photographer. The last one was deported after he reported him to police for overstaying his Thai visa.
