PCH Prize Patrol Dispatched

Travel plans have been finalized and the PCH Prize Patrol has been dispatched. They are on a new mission to make a surprise $1 Million SuperPrize award to a new Publishers Clearing House winner.

The Prize Patrol van will be full because accompanying the cash sweepstakes prize award team will be our PCH Goodwill Ambassador, Natalie Bostelman, and a film crew from a TV series about how winning a big prize changes people’s lives. All of those people will have to fit in addition to the balloons, dozen roses and the Big Check!

Anticipation is building at PCH Sweepstakes headquarters. All of our employees are wondering who the next PCH SuperPrize winner will be. Will he or she have a tearful winning moment or a leaping for joy Publishers Clearing House moment?

We won’t know until we watch the winner announcement
on NBC TV in a commercial during the NBC Nightly News, and then watch the video footage on PCHTV.com.

In the meantime, we’ll watch the progress of cash prize delivery notices on the Prize Patrol Live site and wish our PCH Prize Patrol a safe journey.

    1. Hi Sarah,

      We appreciate you for notifying us regarding the telephone call you received. Let me assure you that there is no connection between the real Publishers Clearing House and the fraudulent party who contacted you claiming to be associated with our company. Winners of $10,000 or more are notified in person by our famous Prize Patrol and winners of anything under $10,000 are notified by Certified letter or Express letter. The call you received was most likely from a fraudulent sweepstakes scam operation.

      At PCH, we are highly concerned about reports of scam artists using our name and good reputation to try and deceive consumers. Let us assure you there is absolutely no connection between the real Publishers Clearing House and the fraudulent party who contacted you claiming to be associated with our company. If you are contacted and asked to pay any amount, for any reason, to claim a prize, you have not heard from the real Publishers Clearing House.

      We want you to know at PCH it is never necessary to pay any money to enter, win or collect one of our prizes. At Publishers Clearing House, the winning is always free! A legitimate sweepstakes will NEVER ask you to send or wire money to enter a sweepstakes, claim a prize or to pay a fee, tax or deposit of any kind. If you are asked to send money to claim a sweepstakes prize for any reason, you are being scammed. If you receive a check and are asked to send money back – you are being scammed.

      At Publishers Clearing House, we treat the fraudulent use of our name seriously. We keep track of these incidents and work closely with the law enforcement and consumer protection community to share this information. We recommend that you also report this incident to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org

      Anyone who believes they have been the victim of a fraudulent contact by phone or mail using the name of Publishers Clearing House, may contact us immediately at our toll-free number 1-800-645-9242. Anyone who believes they have received a suspicious email using our name and logo, may forward it to our fraud reporting mailbox, abuse@pch.com. We also encourage consumers to visit our website at http://www.pch.com, click on the “Info Center” and follow the link to Consumer Affairs Alerts, where there is more valuable information on how to protect oneself and avoid falling victim to sweepstakes scams.

  2. ok, thanks jeremiah. um….one more question, once someone receives the “short list” bulletin or entry “thingy-ma-jig” in the mail, does that person suppose to receive other things after it? by “other things”… i mean other entries?

    1. Hi Lauren,

      Publishers Clearing House will send out numerous promotional mail bulletins which provide you additional opportunities to enter. Every time you process an entry your SuperPrize Numbers assigned in the bulletins will be activated. You are not obligated to enter through all the promotional mail bulletins that are sent.

      Jeremiah @ PCH

  3. ok, if you receive a letter saying something about the short list, does that mean you were put on the short list?

    1. Hi Lauren,

      In our bulletins, we use the term “finalist” to emphasize to consumers that they can enter the final group from which our winners are selected simply by entering the sweepstakes. There are no further steps that need to be taken, no further qualifying rounds or eliminations. One timely entry puts them in the running for all the big prizes. All entries received by the deadline date go into this final group.

      Jeremiah @ PCH

  4. Please,To anyone that could tell me more about the(short list),since I am on the (short list) in which the winner will come from. I also am on the (winners list).I look forward to seeing someone from PCH PrizePatrol.Hope it will be soon. Sincerely Marilyn Carruthers

  5. Hi Cristian,
    Actually, the odds on some of our prizes are better than the odds on lotteries and, with PCH, you never have to pay for a ticket!

  6. Ive Been With PCH For Almost 15 Years and Have’nt Miss a Entry,
    And In All Reality You Have a Better Chance Of Winning the Lottery Then The PCH Grand Prize

  7. I’m shy, it is hard for me to post a comment, I really hope i am a winner of the big check for millions of dollars, and the flowers, balloons and the champagne. I will do good with the money that is so needed.
