  1. Hello Susan, I’ve been playing Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes now since 2020 and have came across some “Luck” being a Super Prize Sweepstakes Winner twice in a row for two years and am understanding that it’s picked at random with the winning numbers and supposed to be surprise delivery if not Home making sure the Publishers Clearing House Official Delivery Team is making safe and successful deliveries is that correct Mrs. Susan Williamson? Thank you and God Bless

  2. I got two messages of call that I am a winner. Using Susan Williamson name and confirmation number 4258. The number she left was 888 317-1694.
    Is this someone scamming me?

    1. Hello Ron, 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. You can see more Safety Tips here: Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim.

    1. Hello David, Thanks so much for the warning! 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!
