Athavudhi Hirunburana

Investor Fraud

This guy is masquerading as a Thai businessman. He offered us $7M w/o out performing any due diligence. That was the first red flag. Then he sent a term sheet asking for very little equity..second red flag. Then the term sheet said we need to file as a foreign business in Thailand and pay an attorney he recommends to do it. Well a little research showed we do not need to file in Thailand. And the only reason we would is if we wanted to do business in country. So, third red flag.

  1. fake investors

    Investment scams ! Be careful they are a fake investor

    Athavudhi Hirunburana . very good english and fake profile

  2. We had a similar Experience but caught it early thanks to your post

    We were in touch with an individual who called himself Santi Bhirombhakdi who we found out is a reputed business man in Thailand. We had a telephonic conversation regarding his interest in investing in our company.

    He mentioned his phone number is his last email and we looked it up in “Truecaller”. Turns this phone number is saved by others with the name of “Athavudhi Hirunburana”.

    We then looked up the domain from which we received his emails. The domain he was sending us emails was “” and “”. We found out that these domains were very recently created and were completely different from the original company domain which is “”.

    Its sad to see small genuine enterprises being scammed like this.

    Please keep a look out for such people and make sure to share your experience online as it will make the detection of such scamming individuals easier.

      Santiburi Group And Samuel Golan scammer!

      I have just come across the reviews above and so glad I did.
      I also received an email from ‘Santi Birombhakdi from Thailand claiming to want to invest in my business. This is actually the second time this has happened to me I’m embarrassed to say and will be the last. In my defence though, these criminals are SO professional in their emails. (The other scammer I will mention goes under the name of Samuel Golan- and claims to be in the diamond business and also property.)
      Red flags started to show when ‘santi’ sent me a very strange looking document which were his proposed terms of the investment. It had the total funds his company had available at the top which I found strange and don’t think any serous investor would divulge. And the only thing he seemed worried about was the repayment on the financing debt arrangement he had proposed.
      Stay away from these people! They pray on hardworking startups they know are desperate for money and it’s disgusting.
      Basically avoid replying to anyone that cold calls you over email- it’s hard as they are so professional in their approach and know how to capture your interest enough to spark further conversation. But serious investors don’t do that. I’ve found being listed on Angel investment network has left me open to scammers like this who can go on and get your details easily. They need to have stricter rules in place for this- make it a closed group so only serious investors can apply. Both these scammers told me they’d found me on the site when looking for investments and both were debt financing agreements, not traditional equity.
      Avoid at all costs!

  3. and are fake domains

    If someone writes you from e-mail addresses such as [email protected] or [email protected] it will not be Mr. Santi Bhirombhakdi.

    This is a smoothly done scam, as the fake domains redirect their websites to which is the genuine Santiburi Group site and the communication of the fake Mr. Bhirombhakdi is quite believable… the impersonator has dived well into the role.

    However if anyone offers you a substantial investment without actually requiring to meet you in person or, possibly, digitally signing proper contracts beforehand you can be quite sure it is scam. So never go for it.

  4. Fake Athavudhi Hirunburana

    this is one of the 30 emails I exchange with this fake man.
    Exist one true in the world but of course this one was fake.
    I’m so sad we had a couple of months sending him all our projects and datas and dreaming we got an investor. that’s so sad.
    Please take care.

    I was asked to contact you in reference to your post on ANGELINVESTMENTNETWORK.USby an investment broker/agent. I am a private investor who is interested in investing in viable projects like real estate, renewable energy, solar, manufacturing, construction and start up businesses to help build a global financial stronghold.

    My mission is to sustain long-term prosperity of companies by prudently growing my capital through a disciplined investment process and committed people who reflect worthy business ethical values. I do not actively seek to manage the public companies in which i invest in, rather i wish to re-invest my fund by putting it into the management of private businessmen and corporations with good business ideas that can generate at-least 5% or more ROI per annum.

    Send me your proposal and we can set up a day and time to discuss on skype.

    Thanks for your post! we have received similar offer from someone masquerading as Santi Bhirombhakdi, who is interested to invest in our startup. His condition as below:-

Communication and negotiation shall be directly with the Entrepreneur/ project owner Funds transfer shall be through bank transfer to the designated bank account of the borrower’s company. The entrepreneur shall agree to provide the Investor’s bank, a Thai foreign business project registration certificate for authorization in accordance with the provisions of Thai foreign business and finance regulatory laws, we can refer you to legal compliance & finance officer to assist your company in procuring the project registration documents/notary statement as stipulated by Thai law and any charges incurred in the business project registration and notarization process will be the responsibility of the Entrepreneur, in adherence to Thai Foreign business and Investment/Finance and governing laws.The project registration will stand in the form of insurance to protect against credit-related losses in
    the investment portfolio as required by Thai outbound investment regulatory law, bearing the original data and basic information of who you are, where you are located, what business modalities you have in stake for a guaranteed returns value for the recovery of our investment principal as and
    when due, and what the investment reads in agreements of funds disbursement into the borrower’s corporate bank account. The business project registration and notarization processes should be completed before the transfer of the investment funds to the business account of the borrower.

  6. Santi Santiburi

    Anything from [email protected] is a scam. We were approached recently. The scammers are quite sophisticated with professionally written emails.

  7. Definitely a scam!

    The number is being used by someone called Apirak Thaipatanagul, CEO & Director of Thai Life Insurance Public Co., Ltd. At first, he sent me an email to propose an investment under the form of a loan with 5-years maturation. The first red flag happened when he proposed me a loan that was 5x than what I actually needed. Then he asked me to wait for a call from his attorney, I received a call from this number +66983575739. According to my research, this number is widely used under different names for investment scams and target startup founders. Be careful! Other names can be found such as: Santi Bhirombhakdi from Santiburi Group ([email protected]), Athavudhi Hirunburana (with his email [email protected], Skype [email protected]), Vanish Chaiyawan, Chairman, ThaiLife Insurance Public Co., Ltd.

  8. Your2020Vision Ltd

    I have been subjected to this scam.
    I was contacted and advised they have seen my pitch on Angel Investors.
    We have conversed and emailed for a couple of months, going through all levels of due diligence, such as NDA, and through Thai financial regulatory checks.
    I have my Tech team in stand by ready for the build, I have a university department ready to work with me for research, all based on this investment and I have a suspicion this investment is not going to happen, and was due the end of October!
    It is utterly appalling and disgusting that people target through a professional platform SMEs and try to scam their business out of money.
    I would recommend being very careful. We have checked the address that was given to me as a home address and it’s a very nice luxury apartment in Bangkok, so all gives the impression that it is ligitimate. I have requested lots of details recently citing that I require this to ensure that my company is adhering to UK law and not involved in money laundering or fraud etc, and it’s gone quiet. Yet when they require money for payment of legal matters they call (twice I’ve tried to organise zoom meetings) face to face and they avoid that. I’ve had several calls from “Santi” from Dubai opening new hotels, to calling from hing kong because he is ill and requiring treatment for cancer!!!
    Be very careful and diligent.

    1. leonardo cutone

      he did this to me too!

      This guy emailed me, we exchanged NDA’s and then had a very professional conversation. He started asking me for financial doc’s and some other info all investors want but he raised a red flag during our conversation.

      My wife is from Thailand…where he claims to be from. When I mentioned where she lived and grew up he sheepishly avoided the subject because he is not from Thailand!. Further googling his name Santi B…. turns up one of the most richest men in Thailand…such a professional scam artist!

      With the information he wanted from us, my passport etc., he could have opened up a business in thaliand and fucked us all up….asshole!
