Avoid PCH Scams With Helpful Hints From Danielle!

Hello everyone!


It’s Danielle of the PCH Prize Patrol. I just can’t say it enough — I just love our fans!  I want to make sure you can quickly identify PCH scammers and protect yourself. So I recorded this short video on how to avoid PCH scams! I hope you’ll watch it and share it with your friends!


Avoid PCH Scams! Three Helpful Hints To Know And Remember!

1.  We never call ahead to notify our big PCH winners in advance. If you win a Big Prize from Publishers Clearing House, you’ll know when we arrive at your doorstep with flowers, balloons and a “Big Check” — we’d never spoil the big surprise!

2.  The Prize Patrol and I never send Friend Requests or Private Messages on Facebook — that’s the truth!

3.  Most important — you NEVER have to pay a cent to claim a prize from the real Publishers Clearing House!  If someone asks you for money to cover supposed “taxes” or “fees” on a prize — stop! It’s a scam.

At Publishers Clearing House, we’re all about making dreams come true. In just a few weeks, the Prize Patrol and I will hit the road again to award an exciting SuperPrize to an unsuspecting winner — maybe even $7,000.00 A Week For Life! Keep entering, because we could be knocking on your door.  Until then — and always — remember these important scam prevention hints!

All the best!

  1. My mother was called today and was told she was the winner of a Mercedes Benz and $3.5 million. She was suspicious from the start. She told the caller she had to contact her children to discuss. The caller gave her a number and told her to have her kids call him. I called the number provided and my brother called too. We spoke with Mr. Rockefeller (a bad alias if you ask me). He sent me an email supposedly from PCH with grammatical errors, format errors, typos, and an illegible electronic signature. All are red flags for a scam artist. One of the attachments asked that my mother send $2,500 for processing fees. Until we got to the bottom of it, my mother was starting to get really excited. And after Mr. Rockefeller suggested I leave my office and go with my mother for the “Big Check Presentation’, that’s when I decided to do a little online investigating first. Online investigation didn’t yield much, but enough to satisfy my suspicions. My mother is 81, and could have a heart attack from this news. They should be arrested. My brother spoke by phone with the crooks, I only got to leave voice mail messages. The crook, James Rockefeller had the audacity to text my brother later and admit that he tried to scam our Mom. It’s one thing to be a thief, its another thing to be a dumb thief. Be careful everyone. These scams are real….

    1. Sadly, there are scammers out there who use our good name and reputation to try to deceive people. If you are ever contacted by someone who is posing as the real PCH, please report it to us via this link: http://bit.ly/Report-Scam-To-PCH. We would like to let everyone know that you never need to pay to claim a PCH prize you may have won. Also, PCH will never contact winners via phone, text, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook requests, or private messages. Large prize winners are notified in person. The best thing about PCH is that it’s free to enter and free to win!

  2. I was phoned saying I won. 2.5 million and a Mercedes. I guess it’s untrue since y’all dont call correct? Was told you Danielle and 3 other people will be showing up at my house tomorrow. I guess I better not hold my breath correct?

    1. That’s a scam. Not even 10 minutes ago I just won $3.5 million and a Chevy Malibu. BS! This was the second time I’ve gotten this type of call in 6 months.
