Just my two cents from a business background.
I think most logical people could infer from his trying to raise funds using "fundraiser site(s) like *******" that he has no connections with wealthy people.
The first piece of info he needs to provide is his general location. If he is located in the United States he can stop his operation right now.
If he has to ask people on 2+2 how to go about the most general aspects, he likely will not have the knowledge to put together a proper, extensive business plan that people will want to see to invest in this type of operation.
Not to be mean, but the "I have no friggin idea what I am doing, I have no experience in the particular business, but I want people to give me money for said business" generally does not work out so well.
