Veronica Trombino: A look at the Newest Publishers Clearing House Winner

Publishers Clearing House Winner Veronica Trombino is the gracious nurse who won $10,000 from the 2011 Publishers Clearing House St. Patrick’s Day Sweepstakes. Dave Sayer wrote about his experience awarding the Publishers Clearing House winner with $10,000 in another PCH blog post, but I thought it would be great for you PCHers to get to know more about Veronica Trombino: straight from Veronica Trombino herself!

Although Veronica Trombino “absolutely never thought” she would win, she simply entered the $10,000 St. Patrick’s Day Sweepstakes, and actually won! I remember that day Danielle Lam from the Prize Patrol told us at the PCH headquarters that finding Veronica Trombino was a bit of a struggle; but seeing her reaction was well worth it. As Dave Sayer approached Veronica, he noted that she looked at him peculiarly. Now that she has metaphorically “picked her jaw off the floor” Veronica explained that she “was totally shocked…it seemed so surreal…I could not believe Dave Sayer and the Prize Patrol were standing in front of me. I thought it was a dream.”

Along with the patients in the waiting room, Veronica Trombino says that her friends and relatives “are all shocked and could not believe someone they know actually won the PCH award.”  Now that there is evidence of Publishers Clearing House prizes being “real” Veronical Trombino commented “Now everyone is entering online…I made them all believers!”

In addition to making people believe Publishers Clearing House is most certainly real, another question most of us have for the PCH winner is what exactly she will do with her Big Sweepstakes Prize. Veronica stated; “Pay some very important bills that I was concerned about and help my family. Thank you so much!”

    In one of Mario Puzo’s Godfather novels, there is this fouams actor who never fails to fall in love with his leading ladies. After the end of the project, he falls out of love and moves on to the next leading lady. That’s probably why he remained healthy and handsome. He had sex with women that he loved. Think about it, we should perhaps fall in love each time…. 🙂

    Meeting Veronica and her coworkers was an absolutely wonderful experience. They were not only shocked, but extremely kind. Veronica actually gave Dave Sayer and I calendars and pens of the doctor’s office – HOW SWEET! I hope you all enjoyed learning more about Veronica…I certainly did!

    I was looking for an e-mail account for PCH however, I could not so….
    I just received a phone call from someone stating that they were from PCH and that I had won a prize however I could not understand them nor could I get there phone# off of my phone so I am letting you know that I think people are trying to scam people using PCH!

      Hi Hannah,

      That definitely seems like a scam! At Publishers Clearing House we do not notify our winners by telephone, by email or by regular postal mail. All prize winners of $500.00 or more would be notified by registered mail and all winners of $10,000 or more would be notified in person by our famous Prize Patrol.

We keep track of these incidents and work closely with the law enforcement and consumer protection community to share this information. We recommend that you also report this incident to the National Fraud Center at

    I showed everyone my $25 check I received from PCH, and some replied, “That little check? Nobody ever win the big ones around here”. I said, “minuscule it my be, but for me, this is gas for a week”.
