  2. Betty Lee told me that I won a large prize from PCH sweepstakes, is charging me money before they can deliver it, and took all of our money and still won’t deliver it.

    1. Hi John, I’m very sorry to tell you that was a scammer, NOT the real PCH. Just so you know, you never have to pay a fee to claim a prize you may have won from PCH, for any reason. It’s important to know also that PCH does not contact winners of a major prize privately via phone, text, email, mail, or on Social Media. If anyone asks you for money for any reason to claim a prize, you can be sure they’re a scammer. Please don’t give them any more money, or any personal information! You can read more about these kinds of scams here: Please report them to us at this link: Have a great day, and stay safe!

  3. I hope that I am chosen to win the Grand prize on April 30th, because it would literally mean a life changer, not just for me but also for my family members. Thanks once again PCH organization and it’s employees, as well as the Prize Patrol staff and its televised notifications. God bless.

  4. Your prize delivery team called me, told me I won and cause me to have a stroke that night over stress that night and trying to get me to pay more money to get winnings and was about to have a stroke again and stopped talking to them and dealing with them.

    1. Hello John, 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!

  5. Matt, please get this to Susan Williamson… This is Foster O$$$$$ in W$$$$$$$$ N.C., I just ordered something and as you can tell. When you ask us to place an order you sound so sweet, and it is hard for me to hear because you sound so sweet. Finally, now you forget to give me 11 entries… again you look very nice in that picture but you also need a break before you collapse… Susan I am going to pray for you. Just give you the ENERGY and collect yourself… I am going in my closet and I also give you all the energy… Susan you carry a lot on yourself. Have a great night and may God give Energy too you.

Our customer service representatives may be reached at You may also reach out by using our Digital Assistant that can be found at the link we provided. We look forward to hearing from you.

  6. I received several calls from someone representing PCH saying I had won 2.8 Million dollars and a 2022 Ford Explorer. The calls were all from New York City. The last call wanted me to make out a cashier’s check for $1,400 to an individual. That made me know it was a scam. If you want more information about this contact me.

  7. I play PCH online, and have participated in almost all of the different ways to win for years now and have actually won a little. I still play everyday in hopes for a life changing prize win because I know it is legit. Let’s pay it forward everybody!

  8. Hello Susan, I hope you’re having a good, safe day. I received a PCH activation code. I was really excited because for years I’ve tried to receive something in the mail. Well, I thought, maybe, it’s signed by you so I tried but it’s telling me that the site isn’t responding anymore? Thank you, please take care.

  9. Today I received a item in the mail claiming to be from PCH (TIME SENSITIVE ADVISORY) Stating this is real & it’s happening soon. A huge cash prize is ready to be awarded & your eligibility for the winter selection process can be secured by going online to www. PCH. com/actnow & it has an activation code SP291 & supposedly signed by you, Notice of cash Prizes with to amounts $5,000.00 $25,000.00 is this actually from PCH?

    1. Hello Shirley, I assure you that www. PCH. com/actnow is the real deal! We’ve awarded over $565 million to winners from all over the US and that number climbs daily!
