Review 3/8/2011
I regretfully spoke with smc over the phone about potentially joining up with them but the longer I stayed on the phone with them, the more I noticed that it was kind of scam-like. I ended the call, mentioning I was no longer interested but thanks... Read More »

SMC Switched agreement and removed a large sum of money from my credit/debit card. When I complained I was told I had to send all junk back. They won't give me a refund. Thank You John Walker

Review 10/8/2010
Thank you - SMC is a classic example of using a famous person, that gives the public a sense of security, trust and accountability. Everything about SMC since I have been involved with the company thus far has been very misleading. Now that I s... Read More »

Review 4/30/2010
I've been a member of SMC for 20 years. I've never had any problems with their products or services. I fully understand that you get as much from something as you put into it. I sell at flea-markets as a hobby as I'm basically lazy when it comes t... Read More »

I am a former employee of SMC, I worked there for 4 weeks, and witnessed first hand, abuse of staff, abuse of "Do Not Call" lists, and people on the phone speaking to potential customers worse that I would speak to a dog. In my desperate job searc... Read More »

Review 12/13/2009
This company is merciless. They don't want you to help setup your business; they want your money with a trick so this company is full of con-artists. "BEWARE OF DOGS" was posted at my back door, now I have posted "BEWARE OF SMC/eMC" at my front door.
