Not A New Jersey Business – Made In The USA Claim

A business search via the New Jersey Portal did not render results for the website or brand. The vendor claims the heater is manufactured by an American-based company.



The same heater is sold on the Walmart Marketplace under the brand VersionTECH. The Alpha Heater is priced at $84.99 with free shipping. Alibaba and EliExpress have very similar heater models ranging between $4.31 and $40.

Afterword – Alpha Heater Scam

The website claims it is an “American Owned” company. There is no evidence to back up this claim. A New Jersey Portal business search rendered no results for the brand. These unofficial websites are dropshipping from Alibaba and AliExpress, driving up the initial price tag by $50 or more. They are rebranding the products to make them “their own.” This website is no better than the fraudulent Blaux HeatCore, which is operated by Quality Performance and Able Look Online.

It is a federal offense to make such a claim. These Chinese-made products are not even assembled in the United States. It is a scam enticing American consumers to invest.


There is no way to justify the $84.99-price tag when Alibaba, AliExpress, and Amazon sell similar models for no more than $27 each.

Nayzayerz cannot factually say the Alpha Heater does or does not work. However, it is highly unlikely since they are made in China like the Blaux AC, which we purchased to test. The miniature footprint does not leave a lot of room for the much-needed components to generate heat.

Many American consumers are down on their luck right now, as millions are unemployed due to COVID-19 regulations. These scam artists are peddling Chinese-made products that turn out to be nothing more than a pile of scrap. It would be nice to have a miniature heater that would keep even a small room warm without driving up our electric bill. But, the Alpha Heater is not it.

We just recently made a similar purchase through eBay. We purchased several items, all of which were from different vendors. They arrived 17 days after the initial purchase. And, all were shipped right from the California-based warehouse belonging to Alibaba/AliExpress.

There is not one government entity that is willing to step up to the plate to bring awareness to these international scams. We are alone in this fight people.

  1. My mother bought 2 of these heaters. They are garbage and don’t work at all now she’s just stuck trying to figure out what she can do about it. These crooks should be shut down. It’s sickening to think that in these tough times their are creeps out there trying to make things worse for people and profiting from it. Thanks for your article, very informative. NOBODY should buy this garbage!

    1. She can file a chargeback with her credit card, file a BBB complaint against the website, and/or request a refund from PayPal. This is not a real company you are dealing with, it is an international scam artist. It is crucial to never purchase from an unofficial website without extensive research. The same products are available through Amazon, eBay, Alibaba, and AliExpress, all of which are more secure than any unofficial website.

    1. I actually saw a look-a-like in Walmart as well. Better off with a convection heater, at least it would generate enough heat to keep a small room warm. The Alpha Heater is an overpriced piece of junk. Thanks for your comment.

  2. Its a scam. I like many others I bought this. I put in a room 7×9 for three hours. No heat what so ever.
    Shame on me thinking that a little wall p,ug heater would work.

    1. LOL! You are not alone. These scam artists have scammed hundreds of vulnerable, unaware consumers. You could have gotten one from Walmart or Ollie’s. I think Home Depot and Lowe’s sells this junk as well.

  3. Mar 15, 2021- It is a scam, In Dec 2020 I purchased these heaters and when I got them they were crap so I sent them back as per there instructions and at my cost. I still have yet to get my refund from them after 3 months of trying to get it back. It is just like a call company and they just send me emails saying that they gave me back my money which they have not. I put it on my credit card so I am now going to call my credit card company to see if I can get the original charge reversed as it is not a legit company.

    1. I am really surprised you got them. It appears the scam artists are fulfilling some orders and not others. Good luck on sending them back because they came from Alibaba. No offense, but Chinese-manufactured junk. Some Alibaba products are decent, but not these rebranded heaters. Not a legit company, just a bunch of scammers taking advantage of vulnerable consumers. Thanks for comment!
