Is This An Official PCH Account?

Publishers Clearing House is such a popular brand that scammers LOVE to try to imitate us. But don’t be fooled! Make sure you’re connected to only our official social media accounts with these helpful tips. And remember: the Prize Patrol will never contact you ahead of time if you win a major prize, not via phone, not via Facebook message, and not via email.

Like us on Facebook!

You can tell this is our official Facebook page because we’ve got that blue “verified” check next to our page name. Don’t be fooled by imitators – like our page now to get the real deal. And remember – PCH will NEVER send you a friend request or private DM, or ask you for money. If that happens – let us know by reporting a scam on our customer service page!

PCH does NOT have a TikTok!!

If you search on TikTok, you might find a few accounts *claiming* to represent PCH – but they don’t!! As of November 2022, PCH does NOT have a TikTok account, so any account who says they’re from PCH on TikTok is an imposter. One good way to tell whether an account is official is to look for the blue verification check. You can see above that NONE of the accounts have a blue check!

    1. Hello Delbert, I am really happy that you knew that it was not the real PCH who contacted you! We never notify major winners over the phone or through standard mail, email or Facebook. We would really appreciate it if you would send us the details of this scam call you received. PCH does not send private Facebook messages to our fans so please complete a Scam Incident Report. Here’s how: There are a lot of scammers out there who use the good name and reputation of PCH, as well as the names of those of us on the Prize Patrol. Please be careful everyone!!

      1. Hi Angela! I’m sorry to say you’ve been contacted by a scammer.
