You Never Have To Pay To Claim A PCH Prize!

Money for nothing. You’ve heard that one before. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, I’m here to tell you that when it comes to winning a PCH Prize, IT REALLY IS TRUE! We mean it when we say it. You never have to pay a fee or send cash to claim a PCH prize.

Let me put it another way. At PCH it’s FREE TO PLAY and it’s FREE TO WIN. There are never any strings attached. And should you win one of our exciting prizes, we would never ask for bank account information … there is no processing fee, tax or special handling charge required to win … and your prize would be delivered free of any charge!

Beware Of Scammers Out There Pretending To Be Us!

Be on the lookout for friend requests from scammers on social media, too. Members of the PCH Prize Patrol will NEVER “friend request” you. If you’ve been contacted by someone pretending to be us on social media, they may ask you to pay or wire money to claim a PCH “prize” that you’ve “won”. Remember, at PCH the winning is ALWAYS FREE, so DON’T DO IT!

If someone tells you that you’ve won a prize, but that in order to claim it you need to give them money for any reason – STOP – it’s a SCAM! If you are asked to send cash or a check … or to purchase a Green Dot MoneyPak® prepaid card or any other cash card – DON’T DO IT! Remember this, at PCH it’s always FREE TO PLAY and FREE TO WIN!

If you have been contacted by a scammer, please don’t hesitate to fill out a Scam Incident Report.  Because we care about consumers and want to keep you protected!

If there is anything you should be taking away from this important blog, it’s this: If you become a PCH prize winner, we pay YOU! You NEVER have to pay to claim your prize!

At PCH, we want all our fans and friends to have fun and stay safe! We love to make entering fun and exciting and we love to award prizes and to make dreams come true! So, stay safe … and to all who enter, good luck!

  1. My name is Levie F$$$$$, and I was contacted by a man calling himself Andrew Goldberg from Publishers Clearing House, claiming that I had won a PCH American Cash Award 5th category Sweet steaks 1st cash prize cash award for 8.5 million dollars plus 5 Thousand Dollar a month for life also the bonus ball which was a New Lincoln Free Roadside AAA and Gas for two years and State Farm insurance for two years. Before I went on your website I really really thought this was real so I sent him two money pak cards $200 each I have my receipts and a contact number to reach him. I feel so stupid because it sounded so Authentic and I just want him caught and my money back before he does this to anybody else if you need anymore information please contact me at +1 $$$ $$$-$$$$. I’m a Custodian and really believe dreams come true so I believe in your Company and will continue to try my luck thank you God Is Watching. ❤️😎

    1. Hi Levie, we’re really sorry to hear the scammers have contacted you. Please report all contacts from scammers to PCH via this link: 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.

    1. Hello Mark, that is not the real PCH; 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 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!
