  1. So I contacted Agent Mark Williams and he said they were stop and I need to pay a $15,800 fee and that would be the last. But I decided to cut my losses and contract you. Someone tried to tell me in Facebook that I would never finish paying him but I thought he was a scammer so I reported him to Agent Mark and he said he reported him.

    1. Hi Patricia! I’m very sorry to tell you that was a scammer, not the real PCH. It’s important to remember that PCH does not contact winners of a major prize via phone, text, email, mail, or on Social Media. Also, if anyone asks you for money for any reason to claim a prize, you can be sure they’re a scammer. Please don’t give them any money, or any personal information! Scammers are very sneaky and will use our good name and reputation to try to deceive people. Stopping them is a team effort so please report any and all scam contacts you receive to PCH at this link: We provide numerous videos, blogs, and tips to recognize these scammers here: Stay safe!

  2. Got a call from a Dave Sawyer, who says he is a prize patrol ambassador. He informed me that I have won 50,000 cashiers check, 5000 a week for life and a 2023 Ford Explorer. The prize patrol would be coming to my home but I need 899 dollar registration card to show patrol that I am who I am. Told him I don’t have this money so now he wants 250 on a green dot money pack scratch card. His number is 1-531-233-$$$$.

    1. Hello Colleen, We’re so glad that you knew that wasn’t the real PCH. As you know, the Prize Patrol will never ask for money to claim a prize. We also don’t notify winners via social media, standard mail, email, or phone. Please report any details you have about this scammer to PCH here: You can also check out this PCH Blog for ways to stop scammers from contacting you on Facebook: Stay safe and protect yourselves from becoming scam victims!!

  3. I’m told by Danielle I won, but I need to pay $345.00 for the van to deliver the prize. I’m not going to pay any money.

    1. Hi Don! That’s a scammer, NOT the real Danielle Lam. Just so you know, you never have to pay a fee to claim a prize you may have won from PCH, for any reason. It’s important to know also that PCH does not contact winners of a major prize privately via phone, text, email, mail, or on Social Media. If anyone asks you for money for any reason to claim a prize, you can be sure they’re a scammer. Please don’t give them any money, or any personal information!

  4. Received phone call from Arizona and was told that I had won 2.5 million dollars a total of $5,000 a week for life and they wanted me to get seals from my state at a cost of $750 each before they could send me the money. They sent me a letter, they texted me a letter across my email to show that it was all real they tried to bargain with me that they covered the storage fee at $3,000 a day and I wouldn’t lose the money, that I also was going to win a 2023 Range Rover in my favorite color blue. I think people should know about this and not accept it they sent me a text or sent me an email they said at an old email address they phone me twice and then told me on the phone when I answered the phone in a second time that I had one they turned around and then put me on hold dearly delight around then sent me a letter to my new email address stating that I was the winner of 2.5 million dollars for $5,000 a week for life and a new range Rover vehicle and they wanted me to turn around and send them two payments to $750 for seals for the State of Florida to get the money delivered here thought it was a scam I went took all the information down they gave me I have it all if somebody is like like the information to maybe follow up on it that’s here with me you can contact me at my email address and I’d gladly forward it to you and I hope this will help stop other people for getting scammed please join with your gift.

    I’m very sceptic

    1. Hello Jessica, that is not the real PCH calling you; it’s a scammer that’s only pretending to be from PCH. Please do not call that number, do not give the scammer any personal info including bank account information, and definitely do not send them any money if they ask. If you haven’t already done so, please report that scam contact to us via the following link: I encourage you to read these Safety Tips too: Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim!
