Does Publishers Clearing House Contact Winners In Advance?

Hi blog readers!

It’s Danielle Lam with the PCH Prize Patrol! One question I hear from our fans a lot is: “does Publishers Clearing House contact winners in advance?” Watch my video below to find out the answer:

There you have it everyone! As I mentioned in my video, the only way you’ll know if you won big from PCH is if the Prize Patrol shows up at your doorstep! That’s right, we do NOT contact our prize winners in advance. You’ve seen our winning moments on TV, and that is exactly how they happen in real life! We show up unannounced and give our lucky winners the surprise of a lifetime.

The other important thing to remember is that we NEVER ask for money from our winners! At PCH, the winning is ALWAYS free! So if you get a phone call, text message or anything in the mail about winning, and the person asks you to send money to claim your prize, that is NOT the real PCH Sweepstakes!

I hope this helped clear things up, and remember, if you ever have any questions, ASK US! Leave a comment below or on my Danielle Lam PCH Prize Patrol Fan Page on Facebook!

Our next big prize event is right around the corner, so please stay safe everyone — and GOOD LUCK!

  1. my mom got a phone on Friday saying PCH would be there Monday between 9 and 11 a.m. I told her it was probably a scam

  2. Hi pch i have ? Do u send emails in advance of if a winner what to expect or is it a scam letter in referring to owners letter that was received in my emails. I really want to win someday cant tell the difference. thanks team.

  3. I would love to see all three of you next Friday, the last Friday of this month of June, you three will make my day. I could really use the money I have a lot I could use it for, taking my daughter to the doctor and getting her checked out from head to toe, she’s been having a lot of problems and she doesn’t have any health insurance. I would definitely help other people and animals out as well as people on both on a one on one
    bases or people as a group, and help places like cancer centers, and other centers that need help for others.
    I just want to be a winner once in my life before I die it would make me so happy to help as many people as I can and animals.When you come and I’m not home go next door to 229 it’s just across the yard where the blue Ford Focus is at.I’ll answer the door I’ll be watching my grandson. I hope you come early in the morning around 10am. I can’t wait to see all of you.

  4. Thanks so much for these valuable updates, Danielle. The only other “just wondering” I have is should a winner not be home at the time of Prize Patrol arrival, do you wait, return, or re-select another winner? Certainly appreciate your guidance in understanding the process. It’s been so much fun playing. Best regards, Bev Fraioli, Worcester, MA

  5. Im a full time rv,er,my address is a private mail box,so if i win,does that mean im disqualify, since you won’t be able to find my front door,

  6. I RECEIVED A CALL FROM A JOHN MORGAN BADGE# 1790JM STATING I HAD WON 2M AND A 2017 DODGE TRUCKS, HE VERIFIED MY NAME & ADDRESS & GAVE ME A CONFIRMATION NUMBER & WANTS ME TO MEET HIM AT WAL MART TO FILL OUT MY PAPERWORK. HE IS SUPPOSED TO CALL ME BACK IN AN HOUR TO MEET HIM. GUESSING THIS IS A SCAM?

    1. Hello Kathy, 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. You can see more Safety Tips here: http://bit.ly/PCH-Safety-Tips Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim!

  7. I received a text message saying I was the next grand prize winner and they would be at my home today before 3 pm all I need to do is go and pay a fee for a US clearance receipt. Wanted me to go to my local Wal-mart and pay $300. Thank you for this information on how your winners are chosen.
