Protect Yourself Against PCH Scams — Here’s How!

Hey Friends and Fans,

If you’re a fan of any of our Fan Pages on Facebook, you may have seen me alerting fans to PCH scams in my comments. Here at PCH, we’re working tirelessly to stop these swarthy scammers and protect YOU…always! We’d also like you to keep in mind that there are things YOU can do to protect yourself, as well. Here are a few tips:

1. Official PCH Fan Pages DO NOT send or accept friend requests. That means if you receive a friend request from someone claiming to be from PCH, you can rest assured that this person is absolutely not from PCH.

2. Official PCH Fan Pages DO NOT send private messages! So, if you wander into your Facebook inbox and you notice you’ve received a message from someone who may have the same username or photo as Danielle Lam, you can ALSO rest assured that you are not dealing with the real PCH and the person who sent you this message is 100% a PCH scammer!

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you are still unsure about whether something is a Publishers Clearing House scam, there’s another easy way to stay safe. If the message says that you must pay, buy something or drive somewhere to claim a prize, then it’s DEFINITELY a Publishers Clearing House scam! We’ll NEVER ask you to pay a cent or do any of the above in order to claim a prize. PLUS, PCH will never notify you about winning a prize through a Facebook message. It just won’t happen!

And remember, the only truly official PCH Fan Pages are those that I like! I invite you to take a look at them and check them against your “Liked” pages.

I know it’s scary to think about, but these PCH scammers want nothing more than to take advantage of your trust. And with our August 31st Prize Event fast approaching, unfortunately they will probably be ramping up their efforts. Don’t let them fool you or those you love! Besides, you know if you win big on August 31st, the Prize Patrol will be AT YOUR DOOR with a big check – not sending you a message on Facebook!

Keep these tips in mind and share this message with other PCH fans! And remember, if you EVER have any questions, let us know!

Stay safe and best of luck!

Jussie Wilder

P.S. PCHSearch&Win is opening the vault and giving away over $4,000.00 in prizes today! Be sure to search away and you could win big!

Thank you Jussie Wilder, for that informative and inspiring letter!!!

When I hear about these scammers I just think why, why, why, and how very sad it all is that there are people out there trying to do this to all of us. It is good to know that you are doing something about it and we just have to be aware of it all. Thank you PCH for doing that for all of us!!!!

I used to think that if I won, the Prize Patrol will call me but I was wrong. Since I’ve been entering to play in advance with PCH, I surely know how to protect myself against PCH scams.

Thank you for giving us a good advice.

I am trying to get my dreamcatcher that I paid for.
I rcvd part of the shipment and advised at that time that I had not received my dreamsatcher when I paid the bill.
Pls send me my dreamcatcher

I would like to make another order but I am a little leery about receiving the whole order.

I paid for the dreamcatcher, I would like to received it.

I’m also trying to get my dreamcatcher I have to pay for because I received both a bunch of payments and a bunch of shipments for all of the PCH items including monthly issues of Seventeen magazine that I already ordered ever since I already mailed the very first PCH entry/order form in the spring of 2006 and also advised at that time when I had not received my dreamcatcher when I have to pay for yet but both a bunch of payments and a bunch of shipments for all of the PCH items including monthly issues of Seventeen magazine that I already ordered ever since I already mailed the very first PCH entry/order form in the spring of 2006 are already canceled two years ago so now please send me my dreamcatcher to surprise me with all of the PCH non prize stuff right now!.

My order number when it’s already canceled two years ago is# 1032-9639-3219.

My customer ID number that I always enter the PCH sweepstakes by telephone all the time is at# 01500522352. Thanks a lot! 1-800-645-9242
