Last night and again today this Bangkok based internet website topped one million page views in a month. That is great news and shows public confidence in its content and in its investigations.

The recent high ratings are of course a lot due to the close following of our reports into the murders of Hannah Witheridge and David Miller in Koh Tao, which are being followed by the public and media worldwide and we expect the site to settle down at a lower figure.
But Andrew Drummond would especially like to thank readers, posters, and supporters of this site, many of whom have become and are becoming new friends, for their encouragement and of course financial support – support which is often required unfortunately to tell the truth in Thailand.
Currently we are fighting three fraudsters who should have been banged up a long time ago. 
We will win these fights with your continued assistance. But of course this should not be our battle, it should be the battle of the Royal Thai Police - the same agency which is taking a world-wide bashing at the moment.
This might in part explain why I am fighting one person who should not even be in Thailand as he has a seriously previous criminal history and who is in court for serious offences, and two others who are also in court for serious cheating and racketeering offences.
Between two of these people some sixteen websites have been put up to destroy the reputation of Andrew Drummond, if you Google his name the first page will be covered with allegations of 'convicted criminal and fraudster'.  They spend a lot of time on search engine optimisation (SEO)
But remarkably the author's reputation is intact and stronger then ever, and here on this website we have had over the last 21 days some 16 calls from people seeking lawyers and who originally had considered a phony lawyer in Pattaya, but had seen his internet rants. In short every dirty trick they have pulled has failed. We are not lawyers, but have been happy to pass on details of honest ones.
We have also continually highlighted the activities of the ‘Wolves of Bangkok’ who are defrauding hundreds of millions of dollars from victims worldwide.
Over the last week we have also received quite open threats. The ‘Wolves’, share scammers who openly boast about paying off both military and police, have decided not to give way to a group known as the ‘FraudRecoveryGroup’ which consists of 90 victims, who were demanding their money back – on pain I guess of revealing to a selected authority here as to where that cash went.
Readers of this site will of course have a pretty good idea.  
They have decided instead to deal with the local problems. One of those local problems is this site.
Threats, of course, can turn to inducements. They have offered to buy this site to close it down. They have described this act as Drummond’s ‘get out of jail free card’, as opposed to ‘get out of hospital’ - an earlier threat.
Unfortunately backing their arrogance is a lot of cash. 
But I rather think we will fight on? I am not going to set a bad example to my kids.

Thai penis whitening trend raises eyebrows

Image copyright LELUXHOSPITAL Image caption Authorities warn the procedure could be quite painful A supposed trend of penis whitening has captivated Thailand in recent days and left it asking if the country's beauty industry is taking things too far. Skin whitening is nothing new in many Asian countries, where darker skin is often associated with outdoor labour, therefore, being poorer. But even so, when a clip of a clinic's latest intriguing procedure was posted online, it quickly went viral. Thailand's health ministry has since issued a warning over the procedure. The BBC Thai service spoke to one patient who had undergone the treatment, who told them: "I wanted to feel more confident in my swimming briefs". The 30-year-old said his first session of several was two months ago, and he had since seen a definite change in the shade. 'What for?' The original Facebook post from the clinic offering the treatment, which uses lasers to break do
