    Hi Terry,

    Our mailings are opportunities for a chance to win, and provide clear information that the recipient has not yet won any prize, must enter by the deadline, and must be chosen to win. In order to win an entry must be selected by random drawing or match the winning number selected. Please remember that while we receive entries from all across the land only one individual can actually win each giveaway. All PCH prizes of $500 or greater are awarded by either certified mail, or in person by our famous Prize Patrol. These awards are done as soon as all winning entries and prizes are matched. Best of luck!

    Regards,
    Rod @ PCH

      Pch is defiantly a real sweepstake. I know it’s like winning lottery but the old saying goes, if you don’t play you can’t win. So believe me, I’m playing! I also know there are scam artists that try to steal financial information & personal information. I’ve not been victim of anyone claiming to be from pch, but Walmart & Walgreens. I was contacted just yesterday. The person claimed to be a awards distribution and that I’d won a 400$ gift card from Walmart, but the catch was I needed to give my credit card number to confirm the winnings. I reported this to Walmart fraud department. I know pch never wants your financial information in order to play or win. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed & pray that I could be the 2012 pch winner. Good luck to everyone else too :)

          Age is not a factor in winner selection. We have surprised winners of all ages! PCH Sweepstakes winners are chosen at random, and each entry has the same chance of winning. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope!Some young winners are Scott Kent ($10,000.00), Natalie Bostleman ($1,000,000.00), K.J. MacAlister ($10,000,000.00), and Zakiya Green ($15,000.00). You can see some of these winning moments on http://www.pchtv.com.

      PCH – while on your website – I was required to “take advantage of the following offers” – I was linked onto a site that matches individuals with “work at home” opportunities. AFTER adding my name address etc – I was matched up with ‘market research @ workmail.com a few days later I received a check for $2600 – requested to Western Union some of the $ – then become a customer service evaluator at Rite Aid – WalMart. The check was fraudulent – this has caused me and my family severe financial hardship. PCH should investigate “THE SPONSORS” – your site ALWAYS requires the entrant to “take advantage of our sponsors valuable offer.” PCH your credibility is questionable. TRULY questionable. Your sponsors PAY you to advertise on your site – so how are you not also involved in your sponsors scams? Answer this comment – if you can….. From a disappointed PCH Fan

    PCH Sends tons of E-mails and i continuously enter one time after another for a chance to win the 1,000,000.00 per yr for life and it seems as if no entry even takes place time after time then they want you to search their controlled site and offer no link to connect to?? It’s totally impossible to enter so how can anyone even win?

    Concerned Citizen said...

    My 92 year old mother keeps getting the PCH mailings, and I keep sending them back with “please don’t send any more”. Dear God, she’s 92 and she thinks she might actually win. What a joke. When I miss grabbing a mailing (that hasn’t stopped), she orders another piece of junk from them. WHen I send it back, PCH still keeps on sending the bill.

    When I try to contact them, there is no way (or easy way) to report an item that has not been received. PREY ON THE ELDERLY AND GIVE THEIR CAREGIVERS STRESS? OLD PEOPLE ARE EASY MARKS, AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES.

      PCH Staff said...

      Concerned Citizen, please remember that you never, ever have to purchase anything in order to play, enter or win with PCH…and buying something does not increase your chances of winning.

      If you would like to remove your mother from our mailing lists, if you would like to remove your name from our mailing list, please send us a message at our Get Help tab: http://on.fb.me/PCHgethelp.

      You can enter once per day per promotion.

If they don’t get your money one way they get it another.They should be made give at least some of our money back for what we have spent. No one should shadier someone’s hopes and dreams.

The number is 559-800-8055 and I was told to speak to a David White. When I called I was told I needed to pay a processing fee to get the check redelivered.

      After I enter my information in the boxes it takes me to the superpass thing. Do I have to do anything or can I close the page right away and still be entered? Because I enter again in the same day but it doesn’t say anything like I’ve already entered so I can’t enter again till tomorrow. So my question is, how can I just enter the contest? I don’t want the superpass or anything like that.

    PCH emails me several times a day. I respond. I was told the next winner of a huge prize was definitely in my area (Washington, N.J. 07882) and the initials of the winner were definitely R.P.. Well the next winners name was Jason Clark. I called PCH and was irate. They said better luck in the “future”. They lied to me.

      The Initials Giveaway ended on 2/29/2015. One winner with your initials, chosen randomly from all eligible entrants, will win $100.00. The winners of the Local Area Giveaway were notified by certified mail earlier this week that they have won a prize of $1,000.00. There were a few winners from New Jersey. You can find their names here: http://www.pch.com/winnerscircle/2012-February-localarea.aspx. Neither the Initials Giveaway or the Local Area Giveaway are associated with the SuperPrize that Jason Clark won.

Another Scam: I was called today by a guy who claimed he was the UPS delivery man and told me I won 3rd place in a PCH sweepstakes. I was told he had a certified check for $255,000 that was issued to me and he was on his way to deliver it. I was given a phone number to call to claim my prize. The number is 876-494-0752 and I was told to speak to an Agent Malone. When I called I was told I needed to get a Western Union receipt. I could just go to any office and call them back from the parking lot for further info. Two other numbers involved: 876-875-3248 (fake UPS guy), 876-378-8593 (another agent number).

Hi I was wondering about the 1 million plus 5,000 for life contest.

The contest says enter in all day and everday.

Dose that just mean 1 entry a day with the 10 entries also?

and can I do this over and over again?

When I checked the rules it said only 1 entry a day?

I’m a little confused.

kind regards, Skyler

    Hello Skyler,

    You can enter once per day per promotion. That means that you can enter on PCH.com once and if you receive an email, you can vote through it once. If you use PCHSearch&Win, the search engine with PCH power, your first search gives you an entry into an ongoing PCH Sweepstakes. Each unique opportunity you find to vote is considered as a separate promotion.

I received a call yesterday from a person named Ryan Fernandes telling me I had won $495,000 in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes in the second drawing from September 2010. He gave me Claim # and check #000552114214and his phone #1-516-830-3992. Also verification phone # 1-888-481-1629 for PCH.(Michael Srevens) The check was to be delivered today, October 27, 2011. This person said he was calling from the Dallas International Airport with the package that came from a bank in Panama. Today Another person, James Wentworth,called who was from the Customs office with the Fed-Ex package. His phone #1-888-277-4981. He said I could be forwarded the money package if I would send a processing fee of $1625.00 and the Western Union fee would be $100.00. The money transfer was to be sent to Michelle Pepen in Boston, Massechusetts, stating that she was my employee. I called your PCH phone number when I suspected it was a scam and you told me it was. An hour later James Wentworth called me back to check if I had any problems wiring the money from Western Union and I told him I knew they were scammers and I would turn them in to the fraud line and then I hung up on him!!

PCH, like any legitimate Sweepstakes, will never ask you to pay any fee or make a purchase to claim a prize. You may forward the suspicious email to us at abuse@pch.com or report this occurrence to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190.

I just reported this to your fraud dept at 800-392-4190:

My husband got a call from “Steve Hunter” at 876-440-6758 which our caller I.D. identified as a cell phone number.

“Steve” told my husband he was a $1 Million dollar winner. Package nbr 112976. To claim this package he was told to go to WalMart and buy a “Pay Pal Green Dot Card” for $200. We asked for a PCH phone nbr to verify our winning. Phone nbr given was 580-366-6403. We have not called either this nbr or the original one that came thru.

My wife got on-line and looked at PCH Fraud Dept info and we called and reported this scam.

They are attempting to prey on Senior Citizens – he asked if my husband is a senior and if he is collecting any “Government Payouts”.

These people are disgusting. Should I file a complaint with any government agency?

PCH is a Scam in itself. Having entered PCH Sweepstakes for over 30 years, entering daily via the internet, never won a penny or more. DON’T WORRY – YOU’LL NEVER WIN – THERE ARE REALLY NO WINNERS! It’s so easy to create a first name and initial, pick a town and presto, you’ve identified a non-existent winner on your website. CERTIFIED E-MAIL – Never Heard of Such a Creature – Certified Mail we all know about, Prize Patrol Van self explanatory-go to your momma’s house again and let’s pretend someone really won something with PCH – Someone’s Aunt, Uncle, Parent, Grandparent or Child of Publisher’s Clearing House CEO’s.

The whole PCH site is a mess! I signed up to play the daily slots. I then discovered the games but for some reason I couldn’t use my same log in info so I created another name and password. I was collecting tokens so I decided to enter them to try to win a Best Buy card. It didn’t work, my token count never changed. I went to the help section, tried everything I could find that might help (deleting cookies, etc.), it didn’t help. I tried to send a message to support but it wouldn’t accept either my slots or my games login info. I give up. No sense messing with it if I’d be lucky enough to actually win something but couldn’t claim it because of the totally messed up website.

Here is an example where PCH is probably going to get investigated and it appears there are two problems or scams – one from PCH and one from someone posing as a PCH employee. Today, March 2, 2012, I received an email (URL provided with posting info) with an enticement of $10 million at the top and with giveaway 1830 in fine print directly below the $10 million “lure”. But, the contest is really for giveaway No. 2419 because the text of the email list that giveaway number as the actual contest..

When I googled giveaway No. 1830, I found a website that states that the prize for giveaway No. 1830 will be awarded on February 29, 2011 and only awarded in Texas only. But, my email is dated March 2, 2012 and, it appears to be sent to more than just people in Texas. Here is the URL for the news about winners in Texas only and it was written by someone (Addison @ PCH) who implies they work for PCH.

https://getsatisfaction.com/publishersclearinghouse/topics/prize_1400_and_1830

Additionally, a check of the PCH website (pch.com) shows no listing for either of the giveaways by their number. There is only a one page with a generic statement about contests. This is the type of practice that should draw the attention of the Federal Trade Commission or possibly some state authorities because it is misleading or possibly deceptive consumer advertising and PCH will probably want to locate the impostor named “Addison @ PCH”.

    Hi Larry,

    The email you’ve received is an entry opportunity for both Giveaway 1830 with the $10,000,000.00 prize and Giveaway 2419 with the prize of 250,000 bonus token blast on PCHgames. The email states that you can click any of the links in the email to enter for both giveaways. Giveaway 1830 does not end until 2/28/2015, but many of PCH’s prizes from Giveaway 1830 will be given out between now and then. Giveaway 1830 did not start until November 31, 2011. On February 29, 2012, one $10,000.00 prize was given out to a winner from Texas, and one $1,000,000.00 prize was given out to Jason Clark from Pocahontas, AR. Right now on http://www.pch.com, the first entry opportunity displayed is for the $10,000,000.00 which falls under Giveaway 1830, and is marked right under the prize amount as well as in the Official Rules and Sweepstakes Facts. The “impostor” Addison @ PCH is part of our customer service team who is in charge of answering questions on forums such as the one you’ve linked to here.

    I WANT TO KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE HAVE THE SAME ENTRY NUMBER AS I DO, NUMBER 1830 AND 2549, IN THIS PCH CONTEST THAT I HAVE BEEN ENTERING FOR YEARS AND NEVER ONE A THING? I EVEN USED THE PCH SEARCH AND NEVER WON ANYTHING. HOW MANY THINGS CAN YOU SEARCH FOR OVER THE YEARS IN ORDER TO WIN. WHAT’S THE CATCH OR TRICK? I HAVE READ OVER THESE COMMENTS AND THE ANSWERS ARE ALL THE SAME: THIS IS NOT A SCAM. THIS IS A LEGITIMATE CONTEST WITH REAL WINNERS. THEN I HAVE SEEN THE PCH WEBSITE WHERE PEOPLE ARE PRAYING TO WIN THE BIG ONE WITH THE SAME NUMBER AS MINE #1830.

    Hi Darrell,

    Spin wheel winners are picked randomly. Every day a bunch of winning times are chosen (usually several per hour) and the first person to spin after a winning time wins. Don’t give up, and keep spinning!

Hi, I received a call today from a man that I could not understand. He told me that my father had won money from PCH and asked if we would be home around 4:30 to receive the check. I asked him for an address and phone number so I could verify if there was in fact a large check coming our way. He gave me an 876 number and an address in Miami Springs,FL. Throughout our conversation a rooster kept crowing in the background and I asked him why he was near a rooster? He claimed it was the animal channel, LOL. Anyway, seems I’m not the only one getting these calls, just wanted to add my story. Does publishers clearing house even call people who win money?

I get at least 10 emails a day from PCH since I signed up online and all of them say that I’m not entered to win unless I click on the link and enter, then I have to purchase things. I’m not buying anything to enter, and why is it that the entry the day before didn’t go through. Do I have to re-enter every day? Also, I tried unsubscribing to the incessant emails because they are never ending and clearly don’t help me win anything, but you keep sending them starting with “we’re glad you’re back”. I’m not back! How is this not a scam?!

    You can enter once a day, so we encourage people to enter every day since each entry has the same chance of winning. If you unsubscribe, but then you enter online and do not uncheck the boxes at the bottom, you will be resubscribing to the emails. Also, please note that there is no purchase necessary to enter or to win any PCH sweepstakes. The magazines or products that you see are suggestions of things we think you might like.

Hello PCH!! This is my first time ever making a comment on this site (never knew it exist).For the first time I seen the “winners circle site” Wow!! many people do actually win. However I notice based on the January 2010 through March 2012 winners, only 2 winners from New York state won (I should move to texas, 13 winners in that state),and none from New York City so the odds of winning are even greater (greater than that since I am located in the Bronx)I have been playing for some time now and I always leave a message in the “reply” section.If the past winner circle list is anything like the one aforementioned, my chances truly are 1 in 1,215,500,000. I use to live in Florida (I miss it) I should move back because my chances of winning are even greater there based on the aforementioned winner circle list. How are states and cities chosen?

Or “Open this one before it’s too late”, etc. Why I need to confirm anything every week? Is it a scam or you actually sending emails to people who signed asking to confirm their entries?

I know it’s that “one in a billion” chance but is it really worth all the emails and then trying to distinguish what’s a scam and what’s not?? I’m starting to think no.

    Hi Amanda,

    PCH does send email notifications to winners, but it will not be for a prize of more than $10,000.00. And Publishers Clearing House will NEVER ask you to pay a fee to claim a prize. Also, please watch any phone numbers given in a PCH email. Many times, they are from countries other than the United States. Publishers Clearing House is based in the United States. PCH doesn’t ask for a long list of personal information either in order to claim a prize. Emails that ask you to go give your gender, age, and country are most likely scams. If you are ever unsure of whether an email is valid or not, please feel free to call us at our toll-free number: 1-800-645-9242.

I received a very brief email, supposedly from PCH, claiming that I’ve won 1 million dollars, and that they need my contact info.

However the email address is out@teso.net, and I’m being requested to email to a Dave Sayer at mega@fm.bb.

Sounds like a scam to me, but better to double check.

I’ve been reading some of these post. YES I must agree PCHonlinesurveys.com has its issues. I always address mine soon as they arise, so I know the people at their customer service dept. must rue my name as often as I contact them. But doing these surveys is all in fun. It took Constant complaints about spending 40mins to 1 hour on multiple surveys in DEC 2011 with not being rewarded the points that were stated were to be rewarded for taking their online surveys that someone at PCH finally told me what to look for in surveys to make sure the surveys were ones that rewarded points. I actually had to start taking screen captures of the beginning of each survey so when a issue arose to show them what the survey stated it was. (Becuase PCHonlinesurveys is quick to send out a form letter the survey is not closed yet or our records indicate this survey was for no points, then you have to show proof off the opposite. Headaches) I know they are in the business of making money, but man what a surprise in the past week or two that I notice they cut the point value on their surveys. Just for instance. A 80 point survey is now 50 points. A 60 point survey is now 30 points. A 40 point survey is now 15 points. They cut the points, but not the amount of time some of these surveys can run. I use to find taking some of their surveys was fun for passing the time. I get a little something out of it, they get a little something also. WIN WIN. Not any more I’ll just cut way back and let someone else enjoy the fun with PCHonlinesurveys.com until they get tired

A guy called me & said he was with a claims dept associated with PCH. He wanted me to get $1500.00, or three $500.00 green dot cards from Walmart for travel arrangements to bring me $5.5 million dollars, and a 2012 Mercedes Benz. Is this how it is supposed to happen? I have his name & number.

Please. I think I’ve screwed -up already, with PCH. Is there a way I can determine if I’ve been disqualified? Please. I don’t want to keep entering if I’ve been disqualified. I enter by phone, computer, and mail everyday; but, I think I’ve ‘ticked them off’, and I think I’ve been disqualified. If anyone can help me know that if my number is drawn I would be disqualified or my entries would be disqualified … I don’t know who to speak to.

Tasha Deel said...

I’ve recieved a letter in the mail about an upgraded entry. With it came a instant prize scratch off (sorta like a lottery scratch off) anyway I scratch it and apparently won some money so I attached the offical “sticker” that came with it to the entry form with the “scratch off” and placed it back in the mail.. was wondering if this was infact the real deal or not.. I wasn’t ask for any person information aside from name and address and there was a place for two more “stamps/stickers” should I wish to pretake in the many prizes offers found with the envelope.

After buying countless mags and “entering via e-mail” for the same contest. New entry sent every tw days for the same drawing….1830……PCH is nothing more than a cheap bit scam made to look like a high dollar legit outfit…….very few are ever shown as winners….those that are,..cant be located nor can any internet info be found to even prove that person actually ever existed.

What a scam………shame shame shame.
