I Received A Check From PCH. Is It Real?

As you know, PCH gives away much more than our big millionaire-making SuperPrizes! That’s right, we award lots of smaller cash prizes each and every day to lucky winners across the country, and the number keeps on growing!

Even though we award our SuperPrize winners live and IN PERSON – not over the phone or via email or social media – for the most part, some smaller PCH prize checks are sometimes sent via overnight delivery service using UPS and Fed-Ex – as well as standard U.S. Postal delivery service. So it’s not surprising that one of our blog readers commented the other day and said: I received a check from PCH. Is it real?

Know How To Recognize The Real Deal!

Yes, it’s only natural to be somewhat skeptical when you receive a check from PCH. Especially when there are people out there waiting to take advantage of those unsuspecting consumers.  Our goal is to prepare you so that you may recognize and avoid sweepstakes scams at all cost! And the number one way to know the difference between a REAL PCH prize check and a FAKE PCH prize check is this ….

Warning Sign: You Are Told You Need To Send Money To Claim Your Prize Money!

At PCH the winning is always FREE, so we would never request payment of any kind!   Remember:  You NEVER have to pay to win a PCH prize. The REAL Publishers Clearing House awards YOU the money, no strings attached. We would NEVER ask you to pay some kind of fee or tax in order to claim a prize, whether through the mail, email, telephone, or any other kind of communication.

And you can take that to the bank!

  1. I received a call from someone saying that they were you, and that my rep was a Christopher Marsh and that I were to call $ $$$ $$$-$$$$ so I did and left a message. They were saying that there was a cashiers check waiting for me of $2,000,000 but I have been aware of scams, so I did not give any information but my phone number and the PCH$$$$ that I was given. They said that they needed to verify my address but I again thought scam. Everything is too good to be true so please let me know if this is a scam so I can block the number.
