Shannon claims to have invested the money in promoted shows. The money was due in April 2008. Every week, he comes up with excuses why he can not quite send the money. He even claimed that the US has moved warships into the Gulf and that caused banks in Dubai to hold money? TWICE he has used the excuse its a bank holiday.

I have repeatly asked for my money back and every single time he says just on more day. Or he is waiting for some one in Zurich to land and sign a loan in some Spanish bank. This FEb 25th he claims to have 4.5 million dollars sitting in ther bank, but the Dept. Of Homeland Security is holding it up. I know Shannon personally through a friend. His own friends in Houston, who I had contact with, says Shannon has ripped them off too.

HE is a con atrist and can not PRODUCE ONE SINGLE document with what happened to my moneym despite numeruos requests to do so. Fortunately I saved every single email he has every sent me, including the dozen or so money is one the way, I sure the authorities are going to have a field day with those emails. He'll be going to prison where he belongs.

Dear Consumers,

Check DALLAS COUNTY CRIMINAL RECORDS for the two complaintants.  Gina Cody has committed 3 felony's this year folks!  She is a convicted prostitute, drug dealer, auto theft, and now will be serving 2 years in the STATE JAIL PLUS 3 YEARS PROBATION AFTER SHE GETS OUT!!! Stop trying to act like you were ripped off.  Both of you like to harrass, ASSAULT AND INTIMATED PEOPLE.  LOOK AT YOUR OWN CRIMIANL RECORDS KENNETH LEE CODY...MY GOD YOUR ESCORT SISTER GINA's RAP SHEET IS A MILE LONG, WITH NUMEROUS FELONIES IN NUMEROUS STATES.  The original thread should be removed because it's is false.  This was a drug investment gone bad! plain and simple.

CHECK OUT Dallas County Online Record search for Gina Cody.  Pull her current felony charge at public access.  She signed a judicial confession of her criminal behavior, plead guilty on all other criminal charges.  Got out of the harassment case for now!

"to little to late", Shannon W. Knox , R.O.I. Risk Management payment made..

AUTHOR: Kenneth Lee Cody - (U.S.A.)


Yes, Shannon has offered to make a $1,000.00 payment to me as well. Which I refused , because I don't want to jeopardize the Theft By Deception charges I filed against him, which are still pending.
Does not change the fact that he falsified the contract on a LLC that was forfieted for taxes in 2007. Nor did he invest my $25k in the manner that he states . This shows his intentions were not to repay any of my money.
Shawn , I am happy you recieved some kind of payment. I am almost positive that will be the only money you will get from him. The only reason you recieved any money at all is in hopes that you too will not go to the authorities, ..."Hush money", if you will.

Don't be fooled by this feeble attempt to look as if he is going to honor the contract.
Please don't hesitate to contact Kenneth L. Cody 972-415-6112 or Gina Cody 214-524-4931..

Justice will be served on Shannon W. Knox very soon...

Shannon W. Knox, RIO Risk Management LLC, payments been Made.

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

While this has taken a long time, Shannon has begun to fulfil his promises. He has made a payment to myself and another associate. He has said along its been one disaster after another, but he will pay us back. I'll have to say I happy to recieve some on my funds. Its tough to keep faith in someone during this past year, but Shannon has sworn numerous times, he will fulfil the original contract.

Shannon Knox's criminal conviction.

AUTHOR: Kenneth Lee Cody - (U.S.A.)

Shawn I am truely sorry that Shannon Knox has wronged you too. Do not feel defeated. The reality is no one is getting any money from Shannon Knox. You can however press criminal charges against him! Theft by Deception , writing a contract on R.O.I. Risk Management LLC, which has been closed for Tax forfeiture in Feb. of 2007. Wire Fraud, if funds were transfered using a bank. This is a federal offence. You need to immediately contact your local sheriffs department as well as the F.B.I. to report this and bring him to justice.
He told told me the very same B.S. about claiming bank ruptcy. But the fact is he has broken criminal laws. No , it wont return your money but if we can join forces we can stop this from happening to any one else. And put him behind bars where he belongs.
ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS FALLEN IS A VICTIM TO SHANNON KNOX IS ENCOURAGED TO PLEASE , PLEASE contact Kenneth Lee Cody 972-415-6112 or Gina Cody 972-983-8553. If there is no answer please leave a message. Or email


Shannon Knox is fact an exconvict.. As mentioned by Stacey Schmidt
after some searching I did find plenty on Shannon Knox federal conviction in 1997 for drug money laudering. check it out for yourself...copy and paste the url:

Please do not do any business with this very convincing con man, he will steal your money... friend or not.. does not matter who you are he is a criminal mind.

I have spoken with Shannon W Knox again

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

He has assured me he can not pay me, at this time, but will pay. He claims he could just declare bankrupty and be done with itm, but he promises he will pay as soon as he is able. He has a point, he could just declare he can't pay, but has not done that as of yet.
