I fell victim to a matrix site. A matrix site is a form of scam that works like a pyramid method. You but a spot in a line to slowly climb the ladder until you are first in line and get your gift.

I found www.matrixwatch.org right afterwards and found how matrix sites REALLY work. I went to PayPal and told them what happened, then e-mailed the owners of the matrix site. These are the e-mails i got from the matrix owners. Watch how unprofessional he progressively gets.


Dear Logan

Because you have already filed a PayPal complaint we will NOT refund your money. That is NOT how you do business with ANY company. Now we will have problems with PayPal because of you. You had not give us a chance to resolve the situation peacefully.

If PayPal decided in your favour - so be it, otherwise we will not refund the money

Goodbye.









it was decided to send u a refund after all,

please do understand that FIRST u resolve issues with US and then u complain

we sent $115 to logan_brinsfield@mcgraw-hill.com


u can add this e-mail to ur paypal account and accept the money


goodbye










Because of people like you we decided to close the matrix,

you people dont understand how our system works, you screw us by PayPal complaints..

our paypal is frozen now, I hope you are happy..


bye





So woohoo! I got my money back and helped kill a site that was leading people into being scammed.

Moral: If it sounds too good to be true......IT IS!!!!

Who knows. All I know is that they are out of comission for right now. Their paypal account is frozen and their nice-looking site was destroyed.

If they wanna get revenge on me....they can go right ahead. From what i heard, most of these people are nothing but late-teens.

www.matrixwatch.org has a forum with a section dedicated to old Matrix site owners who have gone clean and they explain everything...and most of them were 17-19

So they can come find me if they want, but when they do, they'll say hello to a man skilled in swordplay.

(yes. I was trained how to swordfight. it was my hobby)

Most anti-spam filters that the major corporations are using (AOL, MSN, etc) block most 'professionally written' spam, keywords, etc.

So they're forced to use l33t-sp34k to get around them. The problem is, who is going to trust someone offering you a new "cr3d4t c3rd"?

Because an alienware computer for $115 > The parts for $300ish

but yeah I was tricked. Like I said, I never saw a matrix site before and it looked legit. But after further research, it was all a lie. So I got my money back AND kicked their asses out of business.
