Precise measurements of the static magnetic susceptibility have been carried out over a range of temperatures (1.8-300 K) on a series of compounds of formula V1+xSe2 (0 < x < 0.20). The onset temperature of the charg -density-wave transition decreases slightly while the magnitude of the susceptibility drop rapidly decreases with increasing deviation from ideal stoichiometry. Enhancement of the Curie tail and decrease of the crystallographic cja ratio are attributed to excess vanadium in the van der Waals gap.
