Spot A Publishers Clearing House Scam With Danielle’s Tips

Hi everyone, it’s Danielle with the Prize Patrol!  Did you know that I have a Danielle Lam PCH Prize Patrol Fan Page on Facebook where I post behind the scenes insight about our Sweepstakes Headquarters, plus updates from the road? It’s also the PERFECT place for me to talk to fans about our Sweepstakes, winning moments and life overall. I’m so happy that the page has grown to over 42,000 “LIKES” – WOW!!!

I personally think that being a Prize Patrol member is the most fun, rewarding, exciting job there is — and clearly other people do too, because there are people PRETENDING to be ME on Facebook! And I do not want any of you to get fooled because it’s not really me, it’s a Publishers Clearing House scam! Now they say imitation is the best form of flattery, but THIS is certainly not the case.  These pretenders are Facebook SCAMMERS that try to dupe our fans on Facebook into sending them sensitive information or money to claim prizes. It makes me so angry because the REAL Prize Patrol would never do that!

I want to do EVERYTHING I can to make sure our fans do NOT get scammed through these Facebook scammers, so here are easy tips to follow:

#1 – The ONLY legitimate PCH Fan pages are pages that I personally LIKE: Publishers Clearing House, PCHSearchAndWin, PCHgames, PCHlotto, PCHtips,, Dave Sayer PCH Prize Patrol, Todd Sloane At PCH, and Deborah Holland. If it’s not liked by me: It’s a Publishers Clearing House scam!

#2 – We don’t send friend requests on Facebook.  If you receive a friend request from someone on the Prize Patrol or anyone saying they work for us: It’s a Publishers Clearing House scam!

#3 – The Prize Patrol DOES NOT send private messages on Facebook. If you receive an IM or Message, it is NOT the real Prize Patrol: It’s a Publishers Clearing House scam!

#4 – We NEVER notify winners on Facebook. If you receive any winner notifications on Facebook, you guessed it: It’s a Publishers Clearing House scam!

With these simple rules, it should be easy for you to identify Facebook scammers.  If you EVER have any questions though about whether something is a Publishers Clearing House scam or not, I AM HERE FOR YOU!  Just go to my Danielle Lam PCH Prize Patrol Page on Facebook and write on my wall – or you can post a comment here on the blog!

I just received from your friend request and Dave too and Fb inbox and said I won millions, brand new car and $10,000.00 a week for life just in an hour ago….I replied back and said you kidding me, mam?…”You said Nope , you are truly blessed sir!”….. We chatted for a while from your questions and answers…I said I guess that I will be first deaf person to win that you selected me…Suddenly, the Fb msgs removed immediately after your asking me a question…. It’s really disappointed and upset me!!!….. Thought my dream comes true and blessed!….. It’s really sad me today………. From Skelton D. Brooks

    I recently received an email from Pch saying that I won a million dollars. I know this is a scam but I’m not really sure

      Hi Sunny, you were right to be suspicious. The real PCH will never notify major winners by phone, text, email, standard mail or on Social Media. Please report this scam contact to us, by clicking here: Also, please check out the ways that PCH will notify their winners, by clicking here: Stay safe and keep informed PCH Fans!

    Scammers are at it again! I recently received a friend request from “Danielle Lam” and was told I won and then they asked for my info, which I did not give them, and when I asked for their contact info it took then a while to get back to me with some weird phone number so heads up DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR INFO!!!
