According to investigative reporter Rick Westhead of TSN, Messier agreed to be a “good will” ambassador for the company. While other investors were taking their chances, Messier claims he was given a guarantee. He was told he wouldn’t lose money and invested 400,000 shares of Destiny at $1.25 a share.

“Destiny was not a sure thing,” Messier now admits. “Quite the opposite. It was a worthless company propped up by nothing more than Moroz’s grandiose promises.” As of this report, these claims have yet to be proven in court and statement of defense has yet to be filed by Moroz.
