is brought to you by the same company that
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
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
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

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!
4:32pm on May 30th, 2008
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.
