Did I Really Win From Publishers Clearing House?

Did I Win

One of the most thrilling things about winning a Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize (besides the HUGE windfall) is a surprise visit from the world-famous PCH Prize Patrol.  It’s a huge, unforgettable event. So, if you’ve received some sort of notification that you’re a Big PCH Winner, but you’re left wondering, “Did I really win from Publishers Clearing House,” you may be the intended victim of a scammer pretending to be from PCH. Don’t let that happen!

You see, notifying SuperPrize winners in person has been a PCH tradition for decades.  Real “Winning Moments” are the hallmark of our nationally-televised commercial campaigns. While there is no typical “Winning Moment,” a SuperPrize winner could expect a knock at the door to find the PCH Prize Patrol ready to present them with flowers, balloons, champagne, and of course, the “Big Check,” with the cameras rolling to capture their reaction!

Because Publishers Clearing House is a reputable sweepstakes company that awards all prizes as offered, scammers often use our good name to attempt to rip off unsuspecting people.  Here are three important things to keep in mind to help you protect yourself and answer the question, “Did I really win from Publishers Clearing House?”

Publishers Clearing House Never Contacts Winners By Telephone, Email or Facebook. The famous Prize Patrol loves to surprise our SuperPrize winners in person! In fact, most PCH prizes over $10,000 are awarded by the Prize Patrol. Other big PCH Prizes are awarded either by certified or express letter.

You NEVER Have To Pay To Win. Publishers Clearing House will never ask you to pay a cent to receive a prize. PCH Sweepstakes (and all other legitimate sweepstakes) are absolutely free, that’s the law! So, if you’re asked to wire money, send a prepaid credit card, or provide a credit card number in order to claim a prize, you have not heard from the real Publishers Clearing House.

Still Not Sure? Contact PCH Directly! Unfortunately scammers can be very convincing. Don’t be fooled. If you’re still unsure if you’ve won from Publishers Clearing House, please fill out a Scam Incident Report.

As you may have gathered, if you have to wonder if you really won from Publishers Clearing House, you probably didn’t. We at PCH take Publishers Clearing House scams very seriously and actively work with law enforcement to stop scammers. We hope you’ll do your part to keep yourself informed and stay safe!

All the best,

  1. I would love for PCH to come to Caldwell Id. with a big check for me. I was always able to play all of your instant win games now some of them will not load. My favorite gams such as prize patrol slots, moma’s diner and more. They let me get up to the point were is says do you want to play now and I reply yes and it never loads up. This is very frustrating, I love these games and getting my ratings and adding more Avatars.

  2. Hi Pch Family, I just really want Wish everyone a Marry Christams and a Happy New Year. I really, really, really want to win the Pch win for life sweepstakes. I need it to reunite my family that has been, apart for over 30 years. Never seen my grandkids.
