SurplusAlert.com is brought to you by the same company that markets Mydollarshop.com, virtually an identical business opportunity.  They both offer ecommerce websites which allow you to sell a variety of products which you don't have to store, ship, or manage.

Both of these websites have garnered negative reputations for the way that they conduct business.  SurplusAlert.com will offer you a free training kit for their online opportunity, all you have to do is pay a tiny amount for shipping and handling.

What happens is that as soon as you request that information SurplusAlert.com starts your 14 day trial period which if not canceled will result in monthly charges of $29.95.  Since you don't have to agree to anything explicitly many people don't even notice the charges until months go by.

SurplusAlert.com actually uses your billing information from the shipping and handling payment to carry out these monthly fees.  The company outlines this policy in their statement of terms and conditions, something that many folks fail to read.

If you do read their member agreement statement carefully you'll find another reason not to do business with SurplusAlert.com.  They clearly reserve the right to sell your personal contact information such as email address, phone number and home address to third party marketers (spammers).

This disrespectful customer treatment along with the inherent disadvantages of the actual business opportunity i.e. poor products, competition, lack of traffic generating training is why I don't recommend SurplusAlert.com.

FYI to all. Those monthly subscriptions really sneak up on you. Here is a blatant plug for PAYPAL. It has a plug in that among other things, allows you to create a one-time use credit card. It will create a Visa or MC with an expiration date about a month away. You must have something to back it, such as a bank account, so it really operates like a debit card. You might still be scammed out of your merchandise, but at least they can't keep billing and billing after the card expires in a month.

I ordered an item at the beginning of December and didn't receive any confirmation of my order or any shipping information. I then found out that the item had been billed to my credit card account as soon as I placed the order. I sent an e-mail requesting the shipping details, and querying why my credit card had been billed without order confirmation. I received no response, so I sent another e-mail warning that I would be filing a dispute with my credit card company. Still no response. The matter is now in the hands of my credit card company, and the charge has been removed from my account until the matter has been resolved. A bad experience, and I am surprised this company is still in business.

I have been trying to cancel my membership, but for some reason I'm not getting through. I have been billed for the membership again, and I've contacted my bank to fight it. I have also closed my account so that you can not withdraw anymore payments. I would like to receive a responce to this to confirm that my name is taken of the surplusalert.com junk. Thank you for your time and consideration

I got scammed by surplusalert.com they have been charging my account for almost a year before I was made aware the money they were stealing from me. Never Use Surplusalert!

I don't even know what surplus alert is and it showed up on my credit card as a charge. This is not going to go un-tackled. I already don't have a job! The last thing I need right now is to have some half wit company taking advantage of me and I won't stand by and watch it happen to anyone else either. I will be contacting the necessary individuals through the legal channels and this will be delt with accordingly.

I am grateful to did not concent to this 'service'
that was offered to me during my contact with Shopper Service.com. I was told how easy it would be to manage all my products and would be sent info on how to start a website to market my products. I told them I didn't have any products
and wasn't interested in this. They had help for
people like me and would provide me names of wholesaler's to purchase products inexpensively. Again, I politely declined. I kept my notes from the phone call with names and ID#'s of the people I spoke with on March 25, 08. I will watch my credit card stmts. to be sure no charges were placed by this company. Thanks for making me aware of this scam.

I ordered a product from Surplus Alert. I received an email stating a shipping update could be retrieved at the "my account" section of their website. This web page would not open. I called the 800 number provided and got extremely poor customer service. The operator asked for all of my personal information . . . Home address, phone, last (8) digits of my credit card number, telling me that this is the only way to look it up in their system. But she was not interested in locating my order by the order number that they provided me via email. This was very very strange and she would not listen enough to allow me to get a question in edgewise. I truely believe that this is a scam and I intend to spread the word all over the internet. Beware of SurplusAlert!!!

SurplusAlert.com is a total Scam, I too was given false information which resulted in my Credit Card being charged $29.95 per Month for a few months before I caught it. Do not do business with these scam artists.

surplusalert.com Complete Scam...Surplus Alert is a complete SCAM!!!!! BEWARE. They tricked me into taking their "shipping only" offer and then started charging my credit card $29 a pop. To make it worse the free kit had only half the stuff promised.
