Specialty Merchandise Corporation / They Are Scam Artists

1 TX, United States Review updated:

These people are nothing more than low lifes. They are LIARS!!! They reel you in with all of their lies then they take your money. I have asked SEVERAL times to cancel and they wouldn't then you try to leave messages and NOBODY call you back. Then when you do get a hold of someone they tell you that the trial program you chose is a non-refundable trial ...BULL!!! Your not given a choice of which trial you want, LIARS. They charge you before your 30 days and then they don't want to give you a refund, even if you cancelled before the 30 days. Then they have people e-mailing you that they want to purchase from your site, the site they give you during your trial period. DON'T BELIEVE THESE PEOPLE. They just want you to purchase gift cards that could ONLY be used on your site and this site could ONLY be used if the person has a gift card. I hope these people get closed down. SOMEBODY HELP get these people to refund all the money they have stolen from trusting people.

    I agree 100%. I went through the same ordeal. I finally located their corporate headquarters. Only after I screamed and yelled did they comply with my demands for a refund. Again you have to call the corporate office at 800-527-6352. Give them hell!!!

    I was just looking for a way to make some money from home. How I ever wound up finding SMC is beyond me. Anyway I got this offer in the regular mail and, have had several e-mails wanting me to join up. Just about everything I look at online seems to be a scam, so I did a little looking and found these complaints. Maybe its just me, but I feel that any company, good or not, that has these kind of reviews needs to be avoided. The point is clear to me...Always do your research before you get your wallet out!

    Going thru same thing, trying to get my money back, said they can't find my kit at their warehouse, that I sent back just the way they said to, in order to get my refund. Sure wish I had found this site before I gave them any money!

    I was looking into this company for my mother before she got involved with these people. There is nothing about them on the Better Business Bureau website which all businesses you are to trust should be listed so you know whether or not they are legit. So people, you really need to file a complaint on Better Business Bureau website at so they can get these people shut down.!! Believe me, I have used the website a time or two and got good results within a weeks time.

    Responded by phone to a FREE website, then charged $2.95 when they set me up with a business coach. After seeing the scams they pulled I tried calling & emailing them to cancel and got bounced all over. 5 different phone numbers. Finally a girl said she put in a member cancellation, but since it is the 7th day I may get charged $59.95 and if so I needed to call them back to get that reversed. I hope that they don't bill me because I am really pissed already.
