Re:           Class B Common Stock and Note of Fund.com Inc.

Gentlemen:

Reference is made to the revolving credit loan agreement, dated as of July 27, 2009 (the “Loan Agreement”), among Fund.com Inc. (“Fund.com”) and IP Global Investors Ltd (“IPG”) and Equities Media Acquisition Corp. Inc. (“EMAC” and with IPG, collectively, the “Lenders”).  This will confirm that through and including the date hereof, the Lenders have paid in cash to Fund.com the aggregate sum of $2,500,000 which sum is evidenced by a $2,500,000 one year senior secured convertible note of Fund.com issued in August 2009 (the “Note”).

This letter agreement (“Agreement”) will acknowledge that:

(a)            Fund.com.: (i) is currently unable to pay the Note, when due, (ii) is currently in default under the terms of the Note, (iii) requires additional working capital; and (iv) is seeking additional third party financing to enable it to make a potential investment in Weston Capital LLC;

(b)           the Lenders or their assigns have the right to convert the Note, at a conversion price of $0.21 per share, into an aggregate of 11,904,761 shares of the Class B Common Stock of Fund.com (the “Class B Common Stock”);
 
           (c)           EMAC is the record and beneficial owner of 6,387,665 shares of Class B Common Stock;

(d)           the holders of Class B Common Stock have the right to convert each such share of Class B Common Stock into ten (10) shares of Class A Common Stock of Fund.com (the “Class A Common Stock”);

(e)           as at the date hereof, the average closing market prices of Fund.com Class A Common Stock, as traded on the FINRA Over-the-counter Bulletin Board (“OTCBB”) during the ten (10) trading days prior to December 28, 2009 is approximately $0.905 per share;

(f)           the Lenders have advised Fund.com that IPG has assigned a total of $694,050 original principal amount of the Note to (i) Recovery Capital, Inc. - $315,000 principal amount of the Note, (ii) TAG Virgin Islands, Inc. - $189,000, principal amount of the Note, (iii) Bleecker Holdings LLC - $91,476 principal amount of the Note, (iv) Kingwood Capital Partners LLC - $91,476 principal amount of the Note, (v) the Feiner Family Trust - $5,250 principal amount of the Note; and (vi) Adam Levin, or his Affiliate $1,848 principal amount of the Note (collectively, the “Note Assignees”); and

(g)           All unpaid interest and fees that has accrued on the original $2,500,000 principal amount of the Note has not been assigned to any of the Note Assignees, and is retained exclusively by the Lenders.

The Lenders have advised that: (i) Recovery Capital, Inc. will convert its $315,000 principal amount of assigned Note into an aggregate of 15,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock of Fund.com; (ii) TAG Virgin Islands, Inc. will convert its $189,000 principal amount of assigned Note into an aggregate of 9,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock of Fund.com; and (iii) the Feiner Family Trust will convert its $5,250 principal amount of assigned Note into an aggregate of 250,000 shares of Class A Common Stock of Fund.com.  By its execution of this Agreement, Fund.com does hereby agree, upon receipt of conversion notices by such Note Assignees, it will promptly cause to be issued the appropriate number of shares of Class A Common Stock to such Note Assignees.

Fund.com has been advised by potential investors that the existence of one or more events of default under the Note, which is secured by substantial assets of Fund.com, would have a material adverse effect on the value of the public market price of Fund.com Class A Common Stock, and represent a material detriment to any such investor(s) agreeing to provide additional capital to Fund.com through the purchase of additional equity or equity type securities.

Accordingly, Fund.com has requested that each of IPG, EMAC and certain of the Note Assignees who have executed this Agreement (collectively, the “Noteholder Parties”), agree to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.  By their execution of this Agreement, each of the Noteholder Parties do hereby covenant and agree to the following terms and conditions:
