Are PCH SuperPrize Winners Notified by Email or on Facebook? NO!

 Greetings, fans and friends!

Often, when I read your blog comments I see posts that go something like this:

These types of comments make me sad because there are shady individuals out there who want to scam fans like you!

So, let me make this perfectly clear:

  • Are PCH SuperPrize winners notified by email? NO!
  • Are PCH SuperPrize winners notified on Facebook? NO!
  • Are PCH SuperPrize winners notified on any type of social media … by text message … or by phone?

NO … NO … and NO!

Publishers Clearing House never contacts major prize winners by email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any social media platform. And, PCH never contacts major prize winners by text message or telephone!

So, how does Publishers Clearing House contact major prize winners? I think you know the answer to that … the famous Prize Patrol loves to surprise our SuperPrize winners in person! In fact, most PCH prizes over $10,000 are awarded by the PCH Prize Patrol.

After all, one of the most thrilling things about winning a Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize (apart from the prize, of course) is a surprise visit from the world-famous PCH Prize Patrol. So, if you ever receive some sort of notification that you’re a PCH major prize 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!

Another important fact to remember is that there are never any strings attached to winning a Publishers Clearing House prize.  The winning at PCH is always free! We never ask for bank account information … there is no processing fee, tax or special handling charge required to win … and our prizes are delivered free of charge to the winners. If you are contacted by someone claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House and  are asked to send or wire money, send a pre-paid gift card or a Green Dot MoneyPak card, or to cash a check and send a portion back as payment for any reason to claim a Sweepstakes prize – STOP! You have NOT heard from the real Publishers Clearing House.

If you have been contacted by a scammer, please don’t hesitate to fill out a Scam Incident Report.

At PCH, we want all our fans and friends to have fun and stay safe! And to all who enter, good luck!

    1. I received email with same notification but different currier. Is this real?????? I’m really struggling with money due to illness and loss of job. Please tell me if this is a scam

  3. What happens if the winner is not home maybe working or whatever when you show up with a huge prize like 15 million?

  4. The WEB has been overwhelmed with PCps marketed. Used yo it was only by mail. I ogram games and all kinds of things. I think something needs to be changed back to the mail ONLY I got hooked roll into all kids of games and rollinig
    and playing numbers. the next thing I know I am getting over 20 magazines I did not order. The internet is NOT the wisest way to market PCH

  5. PCH, I recommend to get the word out via TV commercials. Make them funny to gain attention. Many older ones only have TV.

  6. Was there a winner of the $650 toward a tv on the TOKEN EXCHANGE drawing on 6/15/2017? Is there a chance that you deposit all your thousands of tokens and then there is no winner at all? The posted winners are for the patio furniture but none for the tv.
