Cody Busby is charming, ambitious and overconfident in his ability and oversells his business propositions by presenting the opportunity as a “sure thing”. The investor is not given accurate or complete information and is unable to correctly assess the opportunity. As a result, the investors we have spoken to have collectively lost millions of dollars between them.

Here you will find some background information along with testimonials of investors and employees who have been financially hurt by his practices. We hope that this website will serve to prevent future investors and employees falling victim to a similar experience.
