How Do I Know If It’s The Real PCH Prize Patrol On Facebook?

Beware of Prize Patrol scammers on Facebook!

There are so many ways for our fans to engage with Publishers Clearing House – and one of the most popular is the new PCH Prize Patrol Fan Page on Facebook. Where else can you get updates on our lucky SuperPrize winners, links to our fun and challenging games, and exclusive content from members of the PCH Prize Patrol – Danielle, Dave, Todd and Howie?

But, because there are some devious scammers out there who attempt to contact our loyal fans and friends on Facebook, pretending to be members of the PCH Prize Patrol, you may be wondering “How do I know if it’s the Real PCH Prize Patrol On Facebook?” 

Well, I’m happy to say there’s an easy and very visible way for you to know if the page you are looking at is the real deal. Find out by watching the video below!


As you saw in the video, if you’re wondering “How Do I know If It’s The Real; PCH Prize Patrol on Facebook,” all you have to do is look for the blue check mark next to the name of the page. If you see a check mark there, you can rest assured it’s the REAL (and the one and only) PCH Prize Patrol Fan Page. This check mark means that the site has been verified as authentic.

That little check mark is a powerful weapon against potential Prize Patrol scammers because it’ll tell you right away if it’s our real page or not. If you see a page that does NOT have that check mark, please beware and DO NOT interact with it!

Of course, we’ve told our blog readers many, many times that you never have to pay a fee in order to claim a prize from PCH. And, we want you to know that the REAL Prize Patrol will NEVER send friend requests … private messages … or winner notifications on Facebook.

So, fans and friends, the takeaway is this: Beware of fake Prize Patrol scammers on Facebook. There is only one real and verified PCH Prize Patrol Fan Page on Facebook … and it’s the one with the blue check mark!

  1. Yeah I’ve been scammed. They they use pictures and names of your Danielle and Howie and David. And I went for search and found out it was too late. I spend lots of money on it. It’s nice to know about this and here I am.

    1. Hi Jesse, we’re really sorry to hear about that. If you still have their information please report them here: PCH does partner with the Federal Trade Commission and we send all scam reports to them so please make sure you let us know anytime a scammer contacts you. Remember, the real PCH never notifies major prize winners via phone, standard mail, email, or social media, and we never ask winners to pay to claim their prize. You can see more Safety Tips here: Stay safe!
