I don’t know about you, but I get scam phone calls, emails and even text messages all the time. It’s really annoying, not to mention disheartening. It also makes me worry for other people that may not realize it’s a scam. That’s why today I want to answer a common question we get here from those who believe they’ve won a prize because someone on social media contacted them. “Is this person on social media really from PCH?”

The answer is NO! PCH and the PCH Prize Patrol never contact winners on Social Media. Regardless of how authentic the communication you received on social media may seem, it’s not from the real Publisher Clearing House. It’s because of these types of incidents that we put out blog after blog and social media post after social media post on scam prevention. We don’t want you to get scammed!

So, what can you do? Well, you can make it really difficult for yourself to be scammed. How do you do that? By not sharing any personal information on Social Media. Here is a quick, handy list of things you should NEVER POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA:

Your Address
Your Phone Number
Your Social Security Number
Your Birthdate
Information About Your Family

Any Private Information That You Wouldn’t Share With A Stranger

Here are some great resources. For scam prevention advice, look at our Scam Prevention tab on Facebook and our Fraud Protection page at PCH. com. Lots of great information here, folks.

Has anyone out there had a scam experience which fraudulently used the PCH name? How did you handle it? Please share your story in the comments below. We’re all in this together, and scammers can get pretty darn creative, so it’s important that we keep each other informed. Let’s spread the word on scammers!

BUT if you get a knock at the door and it’s one or more members of the famous PCH Prize Patrol with flowers, a camera crew and a “Big Check,” then by all means open it! That visit could change the rest of your life! And don’t think that a pandemic is going to stop us from delivering SuperPrizes. Our team is taking every safety precaution to keep you and themselves safe!

So the next time you get contacted on social media which tells you that you have won a PCH prize, and you find yourself asking the question, “Is this person on social media really from PCH?” – you’ll know it’s a scam, and even better, you know what NOT to do! In the meantime, keep entering PCH sweepstakes, playing PCH games and engaging with us on social media. You never know, you could get a knock on your door!
