The author's name is Nick Heil. I've tried to contact him, we'll see if he responds. He has a facebook account, someone else give it shot. Garrett, you live in Arizona where CF is incorporated. Perhaps you might be able to go to your local courthouse and dig up some tax returns, or any other information? Check that link I posted from Hoover's, it has the address in case you need it. Most state court systems have tax leins and other public documents online, so you can check the entire state for free if you go in person. just a thought.
Is anyone a CPA? I'd be willing to do the research if you could point me in the right direction and the right resources.
As far as this being anyone's business, I'd say looking into everything is a necessary service to affiliate owners (and former affiliate owners), and anyone else who has invested in CF, including certs.
