Greetings, fans and friends,
One of my job responsibilities here at PCH is to read through the blog comments and spot ideas for future blog topics. It’s something I really enjoy doing. Sometimes, however, I read comments from good folks like you who have been scammed by people fraudulently claiming they are from Publishers Clearing House. When that happens, I feel bad for our fans who have been the victims of scams, and I vow to help all our fans avoid getting scammed.
Back on June 2nd, PCH posted a blog entitled “Watch Out! Scammers Are Targeting PCH Fans on Facebook!” At that time, we told you 3 super-important tips to help you stay safe from scammers. They are:
- You NEVER have to pay to claim a PCH prize. At PCH, winning is always free.
- The Prize Patrol will NOT send you a friend request or private message on Facebook.
- The Prize Patrol will not contact you on Facebook if you’ve won.
One fan who commented on that blog, Lisa S., said that she got friend requests from individuals claiming they are from PCH “every other day.” Lisa writes:
“I’m so glad PCH cares about their fans to warn everybody about scammers. I’ve had a lot of friend requests just about every other day from scammers acting like Dave, Todd and Danielle. Thanks to PCH posting warnings of scammers, I knew not to accept these requests. PCH really cares about us, and they will never call or send friend requests, and especially never ask any of their fans for money to claim a prize!!”
Thank you, Lisa! We’re glad to know you’re avoiding the scammers … and you know what? We do care about our fans and friends, and we want all of you to stay safe!

And let me say it one more time …
