PCHlotto Scams: Publishers Clearing House Wants You To Stay Safe

PCHlotto Scams

Hi there Gamers! I hope you’re having fun at PCHPlay&Win. But as you go along your merry way, playing our awesome games online and entering our free sweepstakes for a chance to win big, you need to be on the lookout for those playing a much different and darker game!

It’s a sad fact, but there is danger out there on the Internet in the form of PCHlotto scams! It’s important to keep an eye out for those who would like nothing more than to rob you of your hard-earned money.

Unfortunately, these scam artists are on the rise, especially with our fabulous Dream Life Prize Event just around the corner. They’re bound to come out from hiding and target innocent people like you with phony claims and come-ons, pretending to be from Publishers Clearing House or posing as members of the Prize Patrol Elite team.

Please know: these scammers are NOT from PCH and have no affiliation with the REAL Publishers Clearing House. They have NO intention of awarding any prizes because they are scammers!

Please don’t become a victim! Here are the warning signs and some tips on how to spot a PCHlotto scam!

Be on the lookout for any emails, telephone calls or bulk mail letters saying that you’ve won a big prize from PCHlotto. You can tell by the prize amounts that scammers use when they tell you that you’ve won. If the prize amount does not seem familiar to you, or you haven’t seen it promoted on PCHlotto, then it’s probably a scam! Also, scammers oftentimes use the term “US Dollars” after the prize amount. That is NOT language that PCH typically uses  in our communications, and it should tip you off that the email originated overseas.

All PCH prizes of $500 or greater are awarded by either certified or express letter or in person by our famous Prize Patrol at our option. The Prize Patrol will NOT contact you ahead of time  if you’ve won. In fact, the only way the Prize Patrol will contact you if you won a major prize would be by surprising you at your door!

Don’t fall for anyone asking you to pay money to receive a PCHlotto prize.

The truth is you never, ever have to pay to win a legitimate prize from PCH. The winning is always free at PCHlotto! If someone asks you to pay taxes, send a Green Dot MoneyPak Card, or pay fees of any type in order to claim a prize, you’ll know right away that he/she is a scammer! Publishers Clearing House would NEVER, EVER ask winners to pay any fees or taxes to claim a prize — it’s against the law!

Don’t be fooled if someone “claiming” to be from Publishers Clearing House sends you a friend request on Facebook.

 The Prize Patrol members — Danielle Lam, Dave Sayer and Todd Sloane  — never send private messages on Facebook. In addition, PCH does not notify its winners through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or any other social media website.

If you think someone is trying to scam you, take these simple steps:

  • Stop! Don’t provide a potential scammer with any money or personal information
  • Report the scam to your local consumer protection office.
  • Visit our PCH Customer Service Center get more useful information on protecting yourself from fraud.

If you have been the victim of a Publishers Clearing House Scam, please contact our PCH Fraud Hotline toll-free number 1-800-392-4190. Anyone who believes they have received a suspicious email using our name and logo may forward it to our fraud-reporting mailbox,

Rest assured, at the real Publishers Clearing House, the winning is ALWAYS FREE!

Stay safe out there and don’t let any PCHlotto scammers fool you!

What’s Luck Got To Do With It?

PW_What's your Good Luck Charm

Luck is a thing that can carry people very far in life. It’s something that gives us hope, strength, and positivity. I find that life is always easier when you have something to believe in – something that you find brings you luck and good fortune.

A lucky charm can come in many shapes and forms! A lucky charm could be a memory from someone’s past, a person, a pet, an object, or even a song! You may not even know you have a lucky charm! It doesn’t matter what you choose as your lucky charm – as long as you feel it brings you and only you LOTS of luck!

My lucky charm is a rock in the shape of a heart that I found on the beach in Montauk! I carry it around in my purse EVERYWHERE I go! I find it brings me good energy, and sometimes, if I hold it and make a wish, it even brings me good luck! I was so curious about what some of my fellow PCHers considered their “lucky charm”, so I asked around the office and discovered some interesting and great answers!

Lori S. says her lucky charm is her grandmother’s ring that was passed down to her! She never takes it off!

Amanda C. said, “I’m obsessed with song “Time Of My Life” from Dirty Dancing! Every time it comes on the radio, I feel like I can conquer the world!”

Prize Patrol Elite member Danielle Lam says her good luck charm is a photograph of her family!

As you can see, luck can come in many forms. And again, as long as it’s special to you, it doesn’t matter what it is — a person, an object or even a song! Now that we’ve shared with you some of our lucky charms, we want to know what it is that brings YOU luck! It can be anything in the world that makes you feel hopeful and lucky! We’re SO excited to hear what you have to say! Tell us in the comments below!
