It's late here on Monday evening and I wanted to take a few moments to let you all know about some upcoming changes that took place today, and will be taking place tomorrow, and later this week.
As many of you may have noticed, and those who have been reading the news here on the blog, we've been having some withdrawal issues with UniClear and as of today have ceased accepting account funding with UniClear.com.
After a long and arduous process of compiling and submitting over 26 pages of verification documents to UniClear and having our Trust Level there elevated to Unlimited Status, UniClear is still dragging their feet releasing our money to us. We've produced nearly 200K in advertising sales through UniClear.com and after requesting several ACH transfers to our bank we've been rebuffed.
They have to date managed to transfer 10,000 of the 120,000 that we've requested to E-Gold, but we simply will not allow another StormPay situation to take place. We WILL NOT put anymore funds into the hands of a company that seems to be dragging their feet settling our funds.
If this situation improves and begins to be expedited we WILL put UniClear back into the mix, but for now, we simply aren't willing to put any faith into any processor.
Next, we've done a complete overhaul on the Ad Viewer bar and Survey system which you will begin seeing tomorrow. After 3 weeks of what I would call less than enthusiastic response to our required Survey, it's become obvious to us here at the office that some people just aren't willing to participate unless they're forced to.
It's really amazing to me that some people are so lazy that they can't even take 2 minutes to fill in a 5 question survey in order to help strengthen the very company that they are depending on to pay them for their work. And at the same time it will be those people who cry "scam" when we have to fold because of their laziness.
In any event, since so many people refuse to write down, or copy and paste a url into the survey, we're enabling a new feature that will require each member to Vote for a specific URL during their ad viewing session.
Starting tomorrow, you'll begin to see a green link in the ad viewer to the right of the displayed url listing that says "Survey This Ad URL". If you would like to vote for that specific url as your chosen URL for your daily survey, you will simply click that link. You'll be taken to a page that will give you a button to vote for that url. That url will then be inserted into the database and start your survey for the day.
You'll get a thank you message and a button to return to the viewer to complete your session. Once your session is complete, you'll see your link to the survey as normal, but once you click to the survey, the url you previously selected will now be prefilled into the survey to prevent people from entering bogus information into the form. (We've also corrected that small error message you used to get after submiting the survey smiley
If you fail to Vote during your session, you WILL NOT be allowed to post your survey and will be forced to log out, then navigate back to the site, login, go back to the Ad Viewer and Vote on the one site you'll get to view. So, for all of you that have been trying to skate the system, just get with the program, or you're going to be wasting a great deal of time trying to get paid everyday.
Next - Starting next Monday March 27th - anyone who fails to put a URL and Title on any Ad Buy will have their account suspended, and will be forced to provide it to us through the Support Desk. This is pretty simple gang, it's the advertising that makes the system work - if you don't put in qualified urls, no ads can be displayed. By trying to skirt the system and not provide ads for people to earn on, and simply view and get paid you are defrauding not only us, but all your other teammates here within the system.
We thought about simply pointing all those ads to some of our stuff, but that simply wouldn't be ethical, so we've decided that those who don't want to participate can sit on the sidelines and watch as everyone else advertises and makes money.
So I would suggest for all of you who have ads that are currently suspended that still have credits on them get into your account and get those pointed to something prior to the 27th, or you may find your account suspended.
My apologies to anyone who may find this harsh or be offended, but we simply cannot continue to allow this type of behavior and I feel that a STRONG message is required to let everyone know how truly serious we are about these items. We will not allow people to cheat the system or simply be lazy. If you want to participate here - then DO IT! Don't think for one second that we are going to pay people if they aren't doing what's required.
We have several other exciting things coming up here in the next few days - everything is starting to come online here right at the same time and it's pretty cool to watch. I'm meeting tomorrow with Patterson Auto Center here locally to get our first raffle underway, we've ordered the first batch of T-Shirts, Hoodies and Coffee Mugs from our vendor, we just filed today for LLC status here in Texas, Virtual Money Cards will be coming soon, it's all coming together folks.
So GET FIRED UP!!! Get out there and promote and get ready for the future!
Thanks to everyone and I look forward to talking to you all again soon.
We are very happy to announce that with your help we have reached 1500
members and $100,000 from upgrades in the last 15 days. As always, we are here
all weekend working hard to ensure the success of our network, as well as
our members. Today is a great day, because we've started the process of
revising our entire network; we are planning to change the format, as well
as improve grammar and punctuation.

business. (Who could forget the StormPay and EMO fiasco?)

We've had a lot of tickets and postings in the Forum concerning the fact that with the new
funding system it opened up the widow for daily compounding.
First of all let's define what folks are talking about and I'll show you why it doesn't matter
to us if that was to happen.
In an Investment type program where you're earning a return on an investment - a daily
compunding would indeed kill the business fairly quickly. It doesn't effect us here at AT
because we're not an investment of any type. You are making a purchase of traffic. The
money you pay when you purchase an ad buy is OUR money.
We then pay you commissions to view ads. The money in what is now your commissions
account is your money that you've earned. There's absolutely no difference in us paying it
to you through e-gold and you buying additional ads, or buying those ads directly from
your earnings. No difference at all. Either way you're spending your money on new
advertising. Simply giving it back to us so to speak.
That being said - the situation that was happening is not one that we wanted and I hadn't
thought about it so we did indeed change it along with a couple other things.
Here's how the system now works:
You now have 2 accounts listed on your stats page.
Your Commissions account - which holds all of your ad viewing and affiliate commissions,
and your AT Holding account which is the account that you will use to buy advertising
We've moved the 4% fee away from the cashout process and attached it to the AT Holding
account so that now, at anytime you fund your Holding account with either Commission
earnings, or moeny from a processor the 4% fee happens at that time. For instance if you
were to fund your holding account from e-gold for 100.00, once the transaction is
processed you will see 96.00 in your holding account. Same goes for a commissions
transfer - you transfer 100.00 to your holding account - you'll see 96.00 in the account.
This does a couple things for us all - it allows the SP repayment fund to grow quicker
because now in order to roll over earnings you contribute to the fund, and it takes the fee
off of the cashout so that if you do cashout - you'll see exactly what we've sent and you'll
know we've not taken anything off of that amount.
It also sets us up with a permenant staging area to add more options to the program. For
instance when the cards come out hopefully later this week, you'll be able to simply move
money into the holding account and make the purchase right through the system and keep
track of exactly where and what you spent your money on.
You will notice on the Increase Ad Buy page you'll see a sentence saying that you will be
able to do a commission transfer once your current ad buys have expired. Once they do
expire and your account drops to the Ad Viewer level, that sentence will turn into a link
for you to access that page.
The transfer page is linked both from the cashout page and the ad buy page once your
account downgrades to the Ad Viewer level. It's also coded so that no transfers can be
done if you have active ad buys so even if you were to call it by name, it still won't allow
you to transfer anything.
I hope this will alleviate any doubts or questions people had about this issue, as I said it
was not something that we were worried about, but it wasn't something that we wanted to
be happening either so we've fixed it up.
The new stats should be up tomorrow and we'll get those posted ASAP.
Also I will be working on the surfbar this week to add an AutoVote feature that will pass
your voted url directly to the survey so you needn't have to remember it or write it down.
We're getting alot of folks who are putting garbage into the survey and that certainly
doesn't help us in providing accurate stats for you, or to solicit large companies to
advertise with us. Garbage in - garbage out.
So if you notice some fluctuation on the epiphany surfbar this week that's why, please
bear with us as we solve this next area that needs work.
For those of you working hard out there you'll be happy to know that we are now once again open for enrollments.
We will remain open for enrollments until we reach the 100,000 member mark and we will close. At this time we'll stop and let all the members filter out who aren't partipating and when the memberhip falls below 90,000 we'll open the doors again back to 100,000. And so on.
You'll also notice that the front page, Terms of Service and Objectives pages have been edited for all the new changes to the plan.
You'll notice that the Weekly Survey stats for our first week of surveys is and will always be posted on the Objectives page in the right column. Please check here weekly to see all the stats on your hard work each week.
Thanks everyone and have a great night, please don't forget that I'll be out from Wednesday on for surgery this week. The support team will still be answering questions.
Welcome to the fifth newsletter of The Matrix Daily!
1.) New referral features
2.) Other updates
3.) Upgrade reminder
4.) Quick stats
1.) The referral page has been completely redone. Because we restrict the availability of your downline's contact details, we now have included a messaging feature where you can email your downline members one by one! The messages are sent by The Matrix Daily server, cleverly entering your email as the sender address so your referrals can reply to you personally if necessary.
You may wish to use this nifty feature to offer your referrals upgrade deals, remind them of the requirement to become a PAID member, or any issues related to referring within The Matrix Daily. Spamming about other matters is strictly forbidden and may get your account terminated at once!
In the lower part of the "Refer" section you can now find all the banners available and when you click on any of them you get a larger image with the instructions for installing the banner into your own web page.
2.) We have revised the FAQ and Terms and Conditions to more clearly display some of the restrictons involved in the program. There are no new rules or conditions but if something has been unclear to you we ask you to review the FAQ and Terms, both clearly accessible from the bottom menu on the site main page.
3.) We have a large number of free members using just the free $5 bonus to earn profit every day. I would like to remind that free (UNPAID) members will NOT be able to cash out before they become PAID. If you are using only the free $5 to surf, the amount required to become PAID increases daily as your account value increases. The amount required pops up when you move your mouse pointer over the red UNPAID text. For further explanations please consult our FAQ and Terms or use the contact form on our site.
4.) The growth rate of our program is perfectly aligned with our long term plans, again more than doubling from the previous newsletter one month ago. This rate will allow us to properly maintain PHASE 1 of TMD where the red pill yields a significantly higher average return than the blue one. With a total of 7568 members ("only", or "already" however your prefer to put it) up to date the blue sky potential of TMD is looking intact and very encouraging indeed.
We wish every member a succesful weekend followed by a succesful Month of March - as a small gift to celebrate the 3rd month Birthday this coming Sunday March 5th will be a surfing holiday for all members who surf on either Friday March 3rd or Saturday March 4th! So if you can surf on either Friday or Saturday, you will automatically get paid your Sunday earnings even without surfing. To get your Friday and Saturday earnings you still need to surf on those days.
The federal regulators that took away control of 12 Daily Pro from it's administrator, Charis Johnson, have a warning for all autosurf programs now advertising on the net.
Randall Lee, the regional director of the Securities and Exchange Commission and a former U.S. attorney says, "One of our hopes is that as a result of this case ... it will send a message to owners of autosurf programs out there. If you cross the line and operate a fraudulent business, we will prosecute you."
On Wednesday, a federal judge in Los Angeles signed an order turning over 12 Daily Pro -- all of it's records and assets -- to a receiver. That order was signed by attorneys for both the SEC and Charis Johnson. Lee says Johnson admitted that 95% of the money paid out came from new investors. He says, "There were no outside investments, no business... it was a nearly pure Ponzi."
Lee also had a word of advice for people looking around for big money -- fast and easy. "It's critical that we help people understand how to make smart investments." He says incredible returns on investment for little or no work is a recipe for financial disaster.
Even though a court-appointed receiver is now taking control of 12 Daily Pro and some $50,000,000 has been preserved , those experienced with these types of investigations say 12 Daily Pro investors will likely get back very little.
"Hundreds of thousands of investors. Millions of Dollars," says Jake Given, a forensic accountant who now works for Price Waterhouse Coopers. "Most likely they're not going to get much money back. The average is only a few cents on the dollar." What's more, there's very little those investors can do but wait.
Lee says the receiver will be "reaching out" to those who have lost money. He advises people to watch for updates on both the www.sec.gov web site, as well as the 12 Daily Pro web site. He expects the receiver will eventually post updates for investors on those sites.
For those wishing to file a complaint in the on-going criminal investigation being conducted by the FBI, you can do so at www.ic3.gov.
As I said the manual surf bar is now in place and all sites will be shown manually - we are no longer part of the AutoSurf industry.
By sometime tomorrow the new 5 question survey will be in place (this was also mentioned by the SEC) and as you all know this was something we had already planned on implementing.
As you all know with the new system you MUST enter an Ad URL or website with each Ad Buy you purchase, this also ensures that REAL advertising is taking place and not just moving money around.
