    1. Hi Mattie. One of the many great things about PCH is that it’s always free to enter and free to win; you never have to pay to claim a prize. Sadly, there are scammers out there who use our good name and reputation to try to deceive people. Often times these scammers will ask for money to claim your “prize”. If you are ever contacted by a scammer, do not give them any personal information and definitely don’t send them any money. Instead, please report all scam contacts that you receive to us via this link: http://bit.ly/Report-Scam-To-PCH. I also encourage you to check out these Safety Tips for some great ways to protect yourself from being scammed. Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim!

  2. They called a man here in our office and the call went on for a few minutes. The called stated he won a lot of money and a 2017 Mercedes car, all he needed to do is call 876-412-9117 ext 5 for John Melone and they would get this delivered. He put it on speaker so we all could hear it. Told him to call this number several times, he did not but we did however google it. In a span of 3 minutes the first caller had called back 3 times to see if he had called John Melone yet. The 3rd call we said it was a scam and we are not calling John and the caller proceeded to swear at us several times. We are SO sick of all these scams!

    1. Hi Lita. That is not the real PCH calling you; it’s a scammer that’s only pretending to be from PCH. Please do not call that number, do not give the scammer any personal info including bank account information, and definitely do not send them any money if they ask. If you haven’t already done so, please report that scam contact to us via the following link: http://bit.ly/Report-Scam-To-PCH. I encourage you to read these Safety Tips too: http://bit.ly/PCH-Safety-Tips. Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim!

  3. My mother was contacted by a “John Anderson” who spoke in a slow voice. He said she won 820,000 USD and a new Mercedes Benz, but I read here that PCH doesn’t notify winners via phone, email, standard mail, or social media and I knew it was a scam. Also, it did come off strange that he didn’t ask my mother for any information or to send money back so for a while I thought it may have been legit. Until we saw the area code that said it was from Jamaica and then my mother told me he asked her if she was the owner of the phone and not by her name. I told the man that my mother wasn’t interested and to not call again. He got a bit defensive and continued to call until I told him I’d call the cops for harassment.

    1. H Ana. Please report all contacts from scammers to PCH via this link: http://bit.ly/Report-Scam-To-PCH. PCH does partner with the Federal Trade Commission and we send all scam reports to them so please make sure you let us know anytime a scammer contacts you. Remember, the real PCH never notifies major prize winners via phone, standard mail, email, or social media, and we never ask winners to pay to claim their prize.
