My ex-wife invested $50,000.00 and I invested $25,000. We went into a contracted investment with Shannon W. Knox of http://www.sandmentertainmentllc.com/ as well as R.O.I. Risk Management LLC. After some investigation of this investment I have discovered the following. Shannon W. Knox never invested my $25,000.00 in the group he claimed to he kept this money. That is deceptive trade practice and is a felony in Texas. The company, R.O.I. Risk Management LLC, he wrote the contract on was closed in 2007.

The business address listed on the contract 6500 Champion Grandview Way #111207, Austin, Texas 78750, is in the middle of a highway.
W. Knox lives in Houston and and his real number is 713-677-0576.

Do Not Investments with this conartist he is a SCAM, Its like throwing money away. I can prove statements made , please feel free to contact me and I would be more than happy to do so! I hope this stops Shannon W. Knox from STEALING anyone elses money!

Now we can not even get Shannon W. Knox on the phone. He will not respond to us at all. So we are headed to the District Attorney's office to File Criminal Charges. Not that , that will get our moneys back.

Shannon Knox has begun payments

AUTHOR: Shawn kelly - (U.S.A.)

Shannon has been trying for over two years to pay everyone back. I like a few of the others. felt at the beginning, Shannon was being untruthful. Fact of the matter is Shannon has done his best to pay people back, it was an investment and fact is invests fail. Shannon has always kept in contact and he began to turn things around. I know for a fact that I have recieved about 25% of my monies back and so has an other investor I personally know. If a few people hadnt been slandering Shannon all over the web, he would not have had such a hard time raising new funds and getting back to positive. I have 100% faith in Shannon Knox to pay me back fully, and this is after some delays.

Thank you,

Shawn

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Rebuttal for S&M Entertainment LLC - Houston, TX

AUTHOR: Mike - (USA)

This rebuttal stands to clarify claims which might have been construed against S&M Entertainment from Kenneth Cody, and in no way refutes or acknowledges his claim towards Shannon W Knox, which will be decided in a court of a law at a future date.

I am the owner and CEO of S&M Entertainment, and would like it stated here that Shannon W. Knox was associated with this company, but had resigned from his duties to spend his necessitated time with his other company, ROI Risk management.

Any monies which he may have gotten from these individuals were NOT raised for S&M Entertainment LLC itself, or any of it's associated projects which it is thus involved in. Mr Cody clearly states this in his grievance, except he has also made it seem as if his or his wife's investments went to S&M Entertainment LLC. This is certainly not the case.

I wish to make this point absolutely clear, and only ask that anyone associated here for future references please be concise and exact when doing things of this nature! These implications have now been disruptive to a legitamate and operational company which was in NO WAY associated with any of the Cody's investment.

The projects which are called into question are strictly through Mr. Knox's company, ROI Risk Management, and any further palaver about this association of monies received towards or for S & M Entertainment LLC in connection with Mr. Knox and Mr. Kenneth Cody, WILL be considered as slanderous and dealt with accordingly.

My heart and sympathies go out to the parties involved in this dispute, and I hope things will resolve themselves quickly and efficiently.

Sincerely,

Michael N. Mazzella

CEO S&M Entertainment LLC

DRUG DEAL PROSTITUION RING GONE BAD- THIS WAS DRUG MONEY FOLKS, I GUESS THAT IS A BAD INVESTMENT

AUTHOR: MR. SMITH - (United States of America)

This whole blog is a load of crap.  First and foremost the 2 brain cells that started this thread are pissed because the drug deal didn't go through.  I will post their criminal records (If they will fit). G. Cody is a covicted DRUG FELON IN THE STATE OF KANSAS & CONVICTED PROSTITUTE IN TEXAS.  Ken Cody is a drunken wife beater with a history of VILOENCE...Do you remeber the ASSUALT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON CHARGE?  The Cody's come from a long line of criminal activity. Miss Cody is a career stalker who uses the internet to ruin people's lives.  Yes Miss Cody has been to JAIL TWICE IN THE LAST 9 MONTHS FOR HARASSMENT.  Miss G. Cody was arrested on October 9, 2009 an is currently awaiting trial in DALLAS COUNTY FOR HER LATEST CRIMINAL ACT ****CRIMINAL MISCHIEF ABOVE $1500...*** Folks call the CROWN PLAZA IN DALLAS TEXAS TO VERIFY... Prostitute Cody got pissed when she couldn't get her "INCALL deposit... A.K.A AS THE HOOKERS HOOK UP ROOM" back from the Crown Plaza.  This methed out hooker and her John stopped up the bathtub, toilet and the sink causing over $7800,00 worth of damages.  The manager's lured the dope dealing hooker back with the promise of payment.  Cody took the bait and was placed under arrest. Cody has 4 independt prostitution websites and is currently advertising on ASPD.NET AND DALLAS BACKPAGE.  So if your a POT....DON'T CALL THE KETTLE BLACK!!!!!!!!  Ken your sister is a lowlife drug w***e who has ruined many lives.  Do yourself a favor and stay away.  Law Enforcement is hot on her a*s.  Don't you people ever learn??

Update

AUTHOR: Stacey Schmidt - (U.S.A.)

This morning it has been brought to my attention that Shannon has been telling others that he is suing me for slander for my comments on this site. Too bad he does not have a case because 1) Slander has to be false statements and 2) He has no money to pay for child support, much less an attorney.

I have filed charges against Shannon for hot checks and identity theft and recommend that anyone else that has fallen victim contact one of the following departments:

FBI Houston Division - (713) 693-5000

Houston Police Department Check Fraud - 713-755-7883

Consumer Fraud - 713-755-5836

Avoid this guy at all costs!

AUTHOR: Stacey Schmidt - (U.S.A.)

I have also been a victim of Shannon Knox, and believe me, I never thought it would happen to me. I grew up with Shannon and considered him to be part of our family. My Dad gave him a job and treated him like a son. Even when Shannon was sent to Federal Prison for laundering drug money, my Dad was the only one to send him money every month and go visit him. We truly believed when he was released that he was a changed man. I even let this snake move into my home before I knew who he really was inside.

Shannon talked me into "investing" $30,000 with him about three years ago. He said I would make $10,000 interest in three months, which sounded appealing. Well, true to the Ponzi scheme form, he produced a check for $40,000 three months later and talked me into rolling that in and adding another $10,000 for a $30,000 profit. Well, three years later, I have yet to see a penny of that investment. He is famous for having EVERY excuse under the sun for why he is not paying you! I have come to find out that he owes about $850,000 in principal amount alone to his investors, which comes out to well over a million with the interest.

Stay away from this man! He is a deadbeat dad and a psychotic liar who does not know what it means to speak a word of truth. I don't know how he can sleep at night with as many lives as he has ruined!
