I say sole face, because no trace can be found of any "Ashcroft or Crowne" or any of the people mentioned in Thawer's self-penned marketing verbiage.
Thawer has gone on the public record stating: "Our team comprises of former Goldman Sachs, Blackstone Group, Credit Suisse & KPMG executives who have raised over $9B collectively". Very impressive. But is any of it true?
Where are these people hiding? What are their names for a start? Why did they leave some of the top companies in the world to join a few month old nebulous mystery startup with no visible presence, backing, track-record or credibility?
Shockingly enough the Thawer Ashcroft "company" may be no more than a one person LLC, as was Thawer's previous "financial company" Waterbury Financial Services Inc. Thawer registered and ran Waterbury out of his family's $175,000 Atlanta area house - that's before relocating HQ in mid 2008 to a mailbox at the UPS Store at 3535 Peachtree Rd NE Ste 520 Atlanta, GA 30326. The other address, 2 Ravinia Drive Suite 500. Atlanta, GA 30346, used as the public front for Thawer's operations is another mail-drop at a Regus virtual office.
In fact "Thawer Ashcroft Crowne & Company LLC" was only registered in Delaware in August 2010, using a $139+ online filing service. This so-called "Global Venture Capital & Private Equity Firm" has no known office, staff, license, credentials or verified accomplishments as far as can be ascertained. A similar story to Thawer's previous financial "companies" - Disruptive Strategies Inc. and Waterbury. That's no surprise. Thawer has years of experience bigging himself up using sock-puppets, grandious press releases, fake LinkedIn accounts, multiple email addresses and incredible stories of hundreds of millions flowing through his hands. If he was half as good at creating wealth in a down economy as he says he is, he'd have been on the cover of Forbes by now. Not grubbing around Internet bulletin boards and the fringes of the Atlanta business scene, selling $100 VC seminar tickets and going to Meetup groups.
I could go and on about the outrageous antics of this parasitic flim-flam man and his boyish fantasies of Bugatti Veyrons and big bucks. Instead all I can recommend is that anyone who has even the slightest intention of giving Rahim Thawer money, or taking "business advice" from him, does one thing - have him, his "associates" and "companies", past and present, checked out professionally. Get a serious background check done. That's proper due diligence by a Private Investigator or equivalent pro, not just a Google search and a phone call to one his pals.
If he turns out to be the fake wanna-be that is described here, you may have saved yourself, your business, your real investors and your family from a lot of grief.
You can thank me later.
