I wish I could scam enough people to be able to pay for a TV commercial to take advantage of even more potential “winners”.

To see some of those winning moments, visit http://www.pchtv.com. 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!
First of all, Good luck to everyone trying to win, second, Victoria? It sounds like you are cutting and pasting to reply, especially when the person you are replying to already knows that they have been scammed or attempted to be scammed. I really doubt you need to say the same thing over and over, especially when they tell you “scam alert” lol, oh well. if this hurts my miniscule chance at winning so be it, I just had to say something because the cut and paste responses seem scammlike themselves.
I dont really know what to say. I cant wait.I have never won anything in my life. cant wait tina
I received an e-mail that said I have won one million pounds sterling said to contact Donald Mathews with name, address, and phone number sincerely Catherine johnson. Is this for real?
I also received a letter from Andrew Goldberg claiming I had won $650 thousand dollars as a 3rd place prize. It’s sickening to prey on the old and the poor.

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.

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?
Thank you for letting us know. We suggest that you report this occurrence to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org.
How do you know if you really won PCH prize, I got an email from pch
