  1. I received fake calls from a person claiming to be Susan Williamson and Debra Holland, which I was told I won $5000 a week. I knew it was fake so I gave them wrong social security numbers and bank number . These people called from March 2023.

    1. Hi Linda! We’re very sorry to hear the scammers are bothering you. Please make sure to report them 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.

  2. I received a phone call from a person claiming to be Susan Williamson from PCH, notifying me as the winner of $7000 a week for life and a new car. The number was $$$-$$$-$$$$. Is this legit?

First I have to buy a Vanilla Vista Gift Card to put $500 on it & give him the code on the card & he will bring me my prizes & leave the checks to take them to the bank next day. I said don’t u have to go to the bank with me. His number came up on my phone as a spam #. His phone was $$$-$$$-$$$$, if that was his real number & name.

  5. I had a call, supposedly from you, with a phone no. 516-$$$-$$$ saying I won the big 15.5 mil prize. I looked up phone no. and it seems to be a scam, please advise, Thx.

  6. Publishers Clearing House has given away billions. Is it possible to get a loan of 11,000,000.00 at 4.2 interest rate from Publishers Clearing House to build my family a complete self sustaining solar powered for sunny days, wind powered for stormy windy days and water powered for rainy days, Home and fully organic all green small community? With options to pay off early with no penalties at a very low payment of $1000.00 a month and no payment for 24 months or until profits of $1000.00 or more a month rolls in As a very easy to qualify loan for mid to lower class people that want to better earth and their families living condition and health!! I don’t want a hand out unless I really do beat the odds of winning which is really really really very slim chance. It’s in the billions I do believe. Back to the questions and facts. The loan will be paid back by the organic farm and animals we will produce! Along with totally green products! Is this something Publishers Clearing House does or will do in the future? If so please contact me….

  7. Hey there Susan Williamson, I just signed in for the grand prize for 15,000,000 a week through a Steve Harvey commercial I hope I have your support in becoming a winner, thank you.
