Default Friend Issues-How do I get my BFF to believe me?

Here's the story:
My friend Amber is going out w/ a guy named Cody. However, Cody told my guy friends (their names are Sumner, Connor, and Trevor) that he likes 2 of my BFFs more than he likes Amber, and the only reason he went out w/ Amber was to get to Ashley and Katy (the 2 BFFs he likes), and is now hitting on both of them when Amber isn't around. Me and my other BFFs (Katy, Ashley, Larissa, Nomi, and Kari) and my guy friends (we refer to the guys as "them") told Amber what was going on, and she doesn't believe us one bit, just because of something he said (which is a lie on his part). She is now mad at all of us and insults us in our face. No matter what evidence we present to her, she won't believe any of it. How do I convince Amber that this is true? How do I gain Amber's trust?

UPDATE 5/24
Cody broke up w/ her, but now Amber still doesn't believe that he was using her, and thinks that we forced him to break up w/ her because we didn't want them together, which is totally not true!

Sweetie, she is going to have to learn this one for herself. Sad, but true.

There is an expression: you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

This is one of the situations that expression is talking about. You have shown her, talked to her, and now she needs to 'see' the truth for herself. Part of it is probably that she just doesn't want to believe it because then she will have to admit that her eyes were 'blind' to what was going on and that is a huge hit to ones ego and confidence.

I hope it works out, sorry that she is being a bit nasty! {{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}

Wish I could help you more, but I am available to talk if you need to!

Thanks.
Cody did say today that he was gonna break up w/ her, but we think that Amber will think that we got him to break up w/ her just because we didn't want them together.

Let her find out for herself, sometimes that's the only thing you can do.

Yikes. Sometimes people are just so smitten, they can't help themselves. I think you girls should talk to her about in a mother to daughter type way if you know what I'm saying. If she is stubborn and doesn't listen, I guess the only thing you can do is wait.

I think the problem is that Amber is very stubborn. In most situations, her stubborness has payed off, but I've warned her that sometimes you just gotta except some facts of life, even if they aren't what you want them to be.

I think you should wait until she finds out herself. It's hard to watch your friend be 'used', but if she won't listen, there isn't much more you can do.
