#WinnerWednesday: Demetria T. Of Fayetteville, North Carolina Can Now Buy A Car After Winning $20,000

How will you know that you really won a Big Check from Publishers Clearing House and are not being scammed by an imposter? You’ll know for sure because the Prize Patrol will come right to your home and present you a Big Check, flowers and a bottle of Champagne just like Howie Guja did to Demetria Thornton of Fayetteville, North Carolina. Demetria was home with her partner, Maurice, and her daughter, none of whom got any text, email, call, letter or notification that Demetria had won $20,000. “Thank you, Howie,” said longtime player Demetria. “Thank you, Publishers Clearing House. I’m still going to play!”

When asked what she would use the prize money for, Demetria didn’t stop to ponder. “I need a car,” she said. “I don’t even have a car.” What advice does she have for other potential winners out there? “Just never give up,” she said. “Never believe that you won’t win. Keep entering. It could happen to you next time!”
