5 Ways To Know If It’s A Publishers Clearing House Scam!

4_5_Spot A Publishers Clearing House Scam

 

Publishers Clearing House is the REAL deal― a legitimate sweepstakes company that has awarded more than $225 Million in Cash and Prizes so far! Unfortunately, sometimes criminals try to cash in on our good name and trick unsuspecting people like you with Publishers Clearing House Scams. While they may be convincing, here are 5 foolproof ways to know for sure if an offer is from the REAL PCH — or if it’s a Publishers Clearing House Scam.

1. If you’re required to wire or pay any amount of money in order to claim a prize, it’s a Publishers Clearing House Scam. PCH sweepstakes are ALWAYS FREE to enter, and there is never any fee associated with winning.

2. If you’re asked to load up a Green Dot MoneyPak  or other money transfer card, in exchange for claiming your prize, it’s a Publishers Clearing House Scam. Again, PCH will NEVER ask you to pay a cent to collect a prize.

3. If someone tries to contact you in advance regarding a prize delivery, it’s a Publishers Clearing House Scam! After all, that would ruin the surprise! For decades, our Prize Patrol has captured the elated reactions of surprised winners and used them in our nationally-televised commercials. You’ll know you’re a big PCH winner if you see the Prize Patrol at your front door holding a “Big Check” with your name on it!

4. If someone calls you on the telephone claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House and says you have won, it’s a Publishers Clearing House Scam. Do NOT give them any personal information!  As stated above, the Prize Patrol awards all our Big Prizes in person and would never call you to update any personal information in our files.

5. If someone claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House tries to send you a friend request on Facebook, it’s a Publishers Clearing House Scam. Even if they are using the name and photo of a prominent PCH employee  ―do NOT believe them. Our PCH employees and official PCH Prize Patrol Fan pages will never private message you on Facebook.

So fans, keep these 5 tips in mind, and you’ll be protected against Publishers Clearing House Scams. And if you ever have any concerns about whether something is legitimate or a scam, please email us at abuse@pch.com, call us at 1-800-392-4109 or comment below!

And remember, you can’t WIN if you’re not IN! So, keep entering the PCH Sweepstakes daily.

All the best!

I have been contacted by a person calling from Jamacia at thisnumber 876-372-4632 saying that I had won $550,000 and needed to go get a moneypack greendot reloaded scratch off card and a UPS truck will be delivering a check to me. They told me to keep it private and to not tell anyone that I was going to town and getting the greendot card. They told me that it would be coming in about 30-40 mins and to have a valid ID the greendot card and the code package number. When they first called they told me to call this number and enter in the 6 digit package number….18669965997 The package number is 315900 I was told that they would be calling me back to confirm I had a moneypack card in hand and then the truck would arrive shortly after that with my check. They said that I should load the card with exactly $287.16 (which is impossible to do anyways) and that the card would not leave my hands when the check was delivered.

If you get a call from Raymond Johnson.. it is a SCAM !! He is a fraud / spammer and has a Thick Indian accent but claims to be from Publishers Clearing house. DO NOT FALL for his speeches. You will n be asked to get a ” Green Dot Money Card” from Walmart.. DO NOT ! this is all false! I listened to get all the info and than IMMEDIATELY called the Real PCH !
NEVER do they require money first and they CERTAINLY do not tell you it will be a private thing–no balloons and no Cameras! Heck half the fun is being Surprised and getting Balloons! This is now listed on the Public Scams all over the country and he will most likely be changing his name since I called the Police AND the REAL PCH… LOL

I was asked to go to Walgreens or CVS and get a card and I would pay 1,100 dollars for it and would be reimbursed when I got my check.

Received two calls this week from 876-843-0190; my caller ID showed the number to be from Jamaica. The caller told me that I had won $2.5 million and a new Mercedes, which was going to be delivered to my house that day. He provided me with the name of an attorney that would be personally delivering my prizes, Marion Brown, the winning check number, the “winning number” and a confirmation pin #. This man identified himself as David Podolski. When I told him I would be contacting the BBB to verify his information, he told me to “calm down” and then asked me if I believe in miracles or attend church. He even offered to give me the PCH number (876-890-1490) so that I could run the information by the customer service department. LOOK OUT!!! These scammers are super creative.

Luckily, I immediately went to google and found this article and was very greatful for that but having to call mom as fast as I could to tell her she was almost scammed again, was the least favorite thing I’ve done in a long time.

Just got a call saying they were PCH and were 45 minutes away, but I had to call the manager to verify info. Said I won $954,000 and a brand new car. Then the so called manager said I had won $955,000 and a brand new Mercedes. I asked for a number to call and verify if they were legitimate. He said if I believed he was playing around, he would give it to charity and have a good day. He said I would have to have some kind of green dot pay pal card or something from CVS. I traced the first number 1-876-249-5368 and got “invalid”. The “manager” number 1-876-817-1741 was based in Jamaica. Wow how do you get from Jamaica to East Tennessee in 45 min. Everybody just beware.

I think the publisher Clearing House is a scam itself. I signed up for years and the only response I get back is to purchase purchase, and purchase

I received a phone call 3/24/14 saying I had won $500,000. They would call me on 3/26, one hour before a delivery at my house. To expect delivery between 9-11:00 am. Well, it was a scam!

I received an e-mail Claiming to be Publishers Clearing House. They want me to contact a company in New Delhi, India.

Scam? Sounds like it to me. However, the $1,000,000.000 they say I won does make it tempting.

Someone called and asked me if I had a valid driver’s license and asked if I could drive to a location because I chose to have the winnings private. I was not going to give them any information but became curious. I then hung up. They have been calling me on my cell phone and sent me an e mail on my cell phone. The e mail was not on the computer which is weird. Anyway it’s a terminated warning issue. I am not downloading anything on my cell phone though in case of some kind of virus. Thought you should know.
