    1. Hi Tony,

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It sounds like you have been the victim of a scam. Publishers Clearing House does not notify winners by phone. Also, please keep in mind that there is never a catch with entering or winning any PCH Sweepstakes. PCH, like any legitimate Sweepstakes, will never ask you to pay any fee or make a purchase to claim a prize. You may report this occurrence to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190. We also recommend that you report this incident to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org.

      Thank you,

      1. Hi Victoria…after reading Tony’s question, how can we be certain that we won anything? I get so many emails and things in the mail that I wouldn’t know if it was real or fake. So…if by chance Rochester NY is on your list, what can I be on the look-out for? Thanks so much for this blog. It really helps!

      2. Hi Margie,

        The PCH name and logo appear on all promotions and communications. We will never ask you to pay a fee to enter or claim a prize. There are many people that attempt to use the PCH name to scam money so if you are ever concerned, do not hesitate to ask here or on our PCH Fan page!

  2. Does the amount of times one enters the drawing affect ones chances to win? It seems to me that this drawing is such a “brass ring” and that it’s any body’s game. I’m glad to see it”s free to enter. One has nothing to loose. I have thrown my name in the hat, let’s see what happens.

    1. Hello Dan,

      Each entry has the same chance of winning, so the more entries you have, the better. But you’re right that it’s anybody’s game! Good luck to everyone!

  3. Hi Deborah….I know this is a shot in the dark and no one ever comes to Rochester NY but if you do…coming to our home would impact our lives more than you could imagine. I can’t buy anything because financially we are hurting but just so you know…I am willing to share. I don’t need a million….just enough to pay off some bills and help our daughter with her student loans. She worked hard for four years in college and can’t find a job. Her loans are over $100,000 dollars. So again…I don’t need a million. Spread the wealth and share it among a few winners. That would be my wish and prayer. Thanks and I keep hoping my day will come. I keep answering all my email notifications. Good luck to all.
