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. Wish it was tru someone on Danielle lams Facebook in boxing me that I won isn’t true is it lol

    Despite entering an address for my home, one of the (numerous!) emails I am getting since entering showed the nearest hotel as where the prize would be delivered. The obvious question then is, how they can deliver it to me without notice to a hotel that I will not be at? Something seems fishy here.

    I was called today and the person said he was the CEO and wanted me to meet with so I can get some ticket cause I didn’t have 385.00 to give the truck that brings your prize I didn’t meet him but his phone #876-489-0232

      I just got a phone call from 876-420-0232. The guy spoke with very broken English. Said I won $2.5M and how long was my bank open today. He said someone was coming to my door and we would all need to go to my bank to make the deposit. Boy if this doesn’t sound like a scam – I don’t know what does!! He kept saying “this is your lucky day! Oh happy day! Oh happy day!” I told him to call back in an hour when my husband will be home………….THIS SHOULD BE GOOD!! lol…………..

    Do they call to inform you you’re in the last qualifying round since it’s not actually saying you won and they don’t ask for anything?
