To: StormPay Inc.
From: North Shore Media
Subj: Requested Information On Our Company
Recently as part of your response to the monumental business we've brought to your company and incredible profits you've received directly from us our account has been suspended for what you say is a lack of response to your repeated inquiries on the nature of our business model.
You know full well that you never requested any information from us concerning our business model, and you currently refuse to answer our repeated requests for information.
But nevertheless, I will detail for you here as an official record what our business model entails and this will serve as a legal document in court as our notification to you in response to any alleged request you made to us for a business model outline.
We will pursue legal action against StormPay Inc. for not only the 6.9 Million dollars you have stolen from us, but potential lost revenue for the future, and punitive damages as well.
Business Model Details:
North Shore Media is, has, and always will be an advertising firm located in Wichita Falls, TX that provides advertising services for individuals and companies in the home business arena.
Our company was launched in May of 2005 and has provided these services through many different domains and programs since that time to include marathonproject.net, quikscope.com, quikhits.com, quikhitspro.com, 2X200.com, and of course alientrust.com.
The program in question (alientrust.com) has a business model quite different from the traditional autosurf models of other sites, whereas we provide advertising packages completely separate from any potential earnings that a member might make.
Once an ad buy is placed for a specific amount and is approved, the member is issued credits to promote their ad, and those credits are issued immediately to their account for use in this regard.
Members are then allowed to earn a commission for viewing the advertising of our other members.
Members understand and agree upon joining Alien Trust that they are purchasing advertising, and they have received no guarantee whatsoever of any earnings potential based on the purchase of this product. Earnings for viewing ads is accomplished completely separate from any advertising purchase.
We then allow members to view the ads of other members to earn money, based on their current active ad buy. Many members do this to earn money, some choose not to.
We also allow members to earn a single level 6% commission on the purchase of ad buys by their personally sponsored referrals. There is NO multi-level affiliate earnings whatsoever at Alien Trust.
You have recently stated that our business is a ponzi scheme. I will remind you what constitutes a ponzi scheme just so we can compare the two business models side by side.
In order to qualify as a ponzi scheme the business would need to have no product or service, no scenario to re-buy goods or services and must be predicated on the constant referral of new members/money into it in order to redistribute that money to those at the top. This is what causes the eventual collapse of the model and precisely why it's illegal.
Number 1: We do offer a complete product and service, we sell advertising products to our members that last for a specific time frame. This disqualifies us as a ponzi scheme.
Number 2: Members must re-buy more advertising once their ad buy is completed. They cannot simply advertise for free, they must pay for advertising services, this means that new money is always coming into the business. This disqualifies us as a ponzi scheme.
Number 3: Our business DOES NOT depend on new members constantly coming into the business. As a matter of fact you would see if you bothered to even read the website, we limit our business to 100,000 members and no more. Constantly re-purchased advertising packages fuels the commission process, NOT new money coming in from referrals. Granted new money from new advertisers is certainly part of the picture, but in no way is the company dependent on new advertisers to support the commissions generated through the system. This disqualifies us as a ponzi scheme.
Simply stated, you don't understand what constitutes a ponzi scheme, and you've not taken the time to review our program to make a valid determination.
I've received word that you are now arbitrarily selecting which members will receive refunds and which won't and I suggest that you cease this action as it will only cause you more harm in the long run. We will be in contact with the FBI, FTC, Secret Service and the FDIC as well as filing legal action against you if you meddle with the funds in our account.
I hereby formally urge you to reconsider your stance here as it will only serve to destroy what little reputation StormPay has left at this point.
If I do not receive a formal response to this ticket within the hour legal action and telephone calls to the above listed agencies along with all the major media companies will begin.
Understand this is NOT a threat, we will recover what you've stolen from us.
