How To Report Publishers Clearing House Scams on Facebook

Hi blog readers,

As you know, sadly there are Publishers Clearing House scammers on Facebook who pretend to be the PCH Prize Patrol in order to fool people. We want to help our fans avoid these Publishers Clearing House scams every way we can.

Remember, the PCH Prize Patrol DOES NOT send out friend requests to our fans on Facebook. So if you do receive a friend request, chat request or private message claiming to be someone from the Prize Patrol, they are NOT who they claim to be!

A lot of you have been asking how to report these scams, so I put together this step-by-step guide to show you exactly what to do in case you happen to come across one.

STEP #1: On the fraudulent page, click the “gear” looking image and select “report/block”.

And as always, comment below or on my Danielle Lam PCH Prize Patrol Page on Facebook if you have ANY questions. We’ll be happy to help stop these Publishers Clearing House scams in any way we can.

Thank you for the step-by-step on this issue Danielle!!! It is scary how many of those fake profiles exist and how real some of them look. So many people running scams these days makes it hard to trust anyone! They are just waiting for that one person who believes them so that they can take advantage of great hard working people :( it makes me sick! But everyone needs to be aware of this an protect themselves at all times!! And remember if something sounds too good to be true then it usually is!!! Unless the prize patrol is at your door with cameras, roses, and champagne! And a big check with your name on it!!! Haha you might want to believe that if you see it!!! Have a great week everyone! Stay safe!!!

Hoping to meet the prize patrol soon!
***fingers crossed and praying***

I try to sign up every time you alert me but it always freezes up and won’t let me advance to the point of confirmation. After spending time saying NO to al the dozens of ads, if I don’t buy anything it won’t let me advance or continue. Then I get notices that say I will be deleted by a certain date if lI don’t sign up…It’s impossible to sign up..the site deleted me every time. I just wrote this same response but was deleted because it said lit needed my e-mail ( WHICH I DID GIVE) . I guess that this site is a scam itself because I can’t seem to get through.

The facebook impersonation scam happened to me once last year and was pretty sure it was a scam and later found out that it was a friend just playing a practical joke on me. He honestly meant no harm, but he still laughs about it even today. Dave Sayer cleared things up for me really well….I will say this….even though I thought it was a scam, I sort of dreamed about what I could do with all of the money!

These are web sites that I had been scammed by PCH:

Christopher Irving@ live .com. Represented PCH
Info@morvalopb.com. Mr William Spencet.
Represented PCH
I then lost $355.00 was told to send money gram for the Insurance to. Juanita Dawes (Account Officer) for PCH Lottery payment delivery as instructed by Mr William Spencet and Christophet Irving in this sequence of connected instructions to location Rockdale, Texas
Sent from Wal Mart 2473. reference no. 35574677 totaling $355.00 to PCH Lottery Payment Officer Juanita Dawes for the insurance. then I were instructed to pay to the Texad IRS $5000 for the Rest if the PCH winnings in order for me to receive the $1 million winnings from PCH. Then I had contacted PCH Fraud division and reported this when I called t-800-392-4190 and informed that I lost $355.00 and almost list $5000 to pay the IRS Texas Lottery payment which I had then realized that PCH was a scammed by the so called PCH fraudulent Board of Trustees as one of the final recipient if a cash grant/donation PCH established 1953 by the Harold Mertz.

Most of Pch is a scam. I get emails telling me to search for triple entries and it even displays a giveaway number. When you search for it the best you get is some reference to a blog or the big prize giveaway but never the one advertized.

    PCH Staff said...

    Hi Paul, PCH is not a scam. PCH is a legitimate sweepstakes company. Over the years, Publishers Clearing House has awarded over $243 Million in prizes to people all over the United States and Canada. 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.

    The emails you’re referring to are for our search engine PCH Search&Win. It’s a search engine like Google, Yahoo, or Bing. You can use it to find anything you’d like – recipes, coupons, information about your favorite celebrities, etc. But unlike a typical search engine, PCHSearch&Win awards prizes every day just for using it and it doesn’t matter what you search for. To learn more about it, please check out our site: http://search.pch.com/howto

I likely don’t understand the rules, a function of old age. But I have yet to get to anything remotely resembling triple entries. It doesn’t matter what I type on search I get everything but a triple entry opportunity

The odds are nearly impossible to win at any of the PCH sites including PCH Search. To make things more impossible, I just got a warning from PCH search saying not to just search for the sake of winning. I was looking for information on homes but that obviously set up some bizarre red flag. I see how it works: If someone does buck the odds of your games – some odds are as high as 832 million to one – you stand ready to revoke their prize based on some arbitrary and questionable rule.

I was a loyal customer and sweepstakes participant until PCH sent my most recent merchandise order to another woman with the same last name at another address in my zip code. Even after I discovered the error after not receiving my order for 2 months and calling, excuses and innuendos were made. I requested my order be corrected and gave my correct address, that I had received all my previous orders at. I’ve lived at the same address for 8 years. Order was re-shipped incorrectly again. After my complaint, instead of a correction, my entire acct was changed to read the incorrect name and address!!! I was removed from your system and my account closed. All my entries were deleted and my magazine subscription that was delivered correctly for 6 months was cancelled mid-year. I no longer receive my 3-4 online sweepstakes entries each day. I didn’t do anything to deserve this. Apparently PCH doesn’t care about the single loyal customer if you have a problem. PCH mistakes are covered up by their employees instead of corrected, and you are given the boot!!!
SHAME ON PCH!!!

Chat Conversation Start

hi how are you

Good and you?

Am fine do you know why I add you as a friend?

Nooo but I hope you will tell me

The only reason why I add you as a friend is because you have been selected as a lucky winner of draw 3251 which is a paying out of one million dollars congratulations!!!!!!

You made me cry

Ok
You are not to tell anyone that you are a winner of publishers clearing house because you will automatically forfeit yourself

I will not say a word until I see you at my door.

All you have to do is go through your claiming process and get your 14 digit claiming control number

I get that in email or in the mail?

your 14 digit claiming control number is the number you use with the IRS and the Better Business Bureau to verify with them that you will be getting your big check and there should be no large deduction o taxes out of your money, we cannot come to your door unless you have your 14 digit claiming control number , you can get your number from the back of the green dot money pak pay pal card from walmart

??? I just go to Walmart and ask for green dot money pak pay pal card? How much does that cost?

You are to purchase a green dot money ak pay pal card at the walmart for $399.89 the money you spend will be refunded back to you double time in cash when we come to the door. what is your contact number so I can call and explain?

Well, this does not sound legit. They say when people pull scams they always ask for money. And I also know that PCH said they would never notify winners until they are at your door. Should I double check with them?ment here

I was scammed too yesterday and realized at the end of our conversation. When I asked what time they would be coming on Tuesday morning as I have a dental appt. at 11 a.m. and drop off my daughter at 1 p.m., they said 10 a.m., so said I look forward to seeing you. They (Dave Sayer) said that they were busy completing the P14 form as we spoke for my winnings – did not ask for money or any other personal info. Then I said “so I will see him and the crew in the morning, so had better get to bed so I am up and dressed when they get here in the morning. Wished Dave goodnite. When I got up this morning I changed the turned off chat back to chat and the first thing to pop up was Dave Sayer again saying ‘Good Morning’ and said Good Morning back. Called them on it by asking “who are you really”, they said Dave Sayer. I then said that I didn’t believe him for a minute. I asked him what happened to his visit with my winnings. Then I proceeded to tell them that he was a scammer and would be reported. Also that people can steal other people’s pics and portray themselves as someone else. After I said I was reporting him, the next thing I noticed was that their pic disappeared and then all their posts on Facebook and chats to me totally disappeared too. Dave actually deleted himself off my page altogether. Since that I have been checking PCH policies and am glad I did not part with any money or personal info. If anyone else pops up saying they are from PCH Prize Patrol I certainly know what to do without talking to them. Thanks Danielle

They told me all I needed to do was to buy a 299.99 money card and send them the 14 digit number. Yeah right.! After I told them I was reporting them they defriended me. Sad how they have no morals at all to steal from people like this.

I recently got an email from this address (below) with an official document indicating I was a big prizewinner from PCH:

“Kathleen J. Shepherd”

I don’t know how to report email scams, but I thought at least that you’d like to know

I have been receiving phone called from a person claiming to be from PCH. I NO that he is from Jamaica using the following numbers 876-315-9179 & 876-887-6071. They have called me multiple times trying to get me to send money to them on a green dot pack. I hope that this helps in tracking down the PCH scammers. I am retired and have played PCH every day sense 2008 and before computers. Thank you for your time.

Someone tried to scam me like that a few months ago. I had to block them on Facebook. I knew right away when they pushed me to go to Walgreens to get a card. I’m not stupid enough to go get the card but he thought I was! Don’t be fooled!

Thank you Danielle, PCH Prize Patrol. Thank you for the information what to do. After I excepted the request and thought about, I thought it was a scam. She then sent me a message. I did not read it. Glad I asked the question if it was a scam.

Thank you for posting on search, now we know.

I did receive a scam notification on Thursday 03/27/14.I received a friend request from Danielle and then was messaged multiple times telling me I won one million dollars and $7,000 a week for life plus a new car. all photos said they came from the web.I was told I needed to purchase a Green Dot Money Pay Pal card before I could receive any money and before delivery would be scheduled. I was asked numerous times when will I have the card. When I said this sounded more like a scam than actually winning a contest I was asked what was I talking about. I did not respond to that I went back and the name was gone but I still have the message postings.

I just got one of them Sun Night on my Facebook chat.

Didn’t react when the prize was announced – but RED FLAGS when $600 Green Dot was mention and printed and spammed the entire chat.

I make sure me did not released my real address – but almost blew it when I told the scammer I lived about 2 blocks from a Kmart but didn’t list which Kmart that was.

Fackbook kicked out the scammer and the entire chat was deleted.
