Publishers Clearinghouse wants you to know:

If you are ever contacted by someone claiming to represent PCH, or claiming to be one of our employees, and asked to send or wire money (for any reason whatsoever, including taxes); or send a pre-paid gift card or Green Dot Moneypak card in order to claim a sweepstakes prize — DON’T. It’s a SCAM. If you are sent a check, told it’s a partial prize award, and asked to cash it and send a portion back to claim the full prize award, DON’T. The check is fake, but the SCAM is real.

Publishers Clearing House does not operate this way and would NEVER ask for money to claim a prize. PCH employees would never contact you personally or in advance to notify you of a prize award. Our SuperPrize is presented just the way you see it in our popular TV commercials, “live and in person” by our Prize Patrol, with balloons, a bouquet of roses and a check in hand — — and with no advance notification!

Scammers use any means available — mail; telephone; internet; email and even Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! Whatever the method of contact, their main goal is to deceive you into believing you’ve won a prize and need to send a pre-payment to claim that prize. Don’t fall for it.

At Publishers Clearing House we care about consumers and want to be sure you stay protected from SCAMMERS fraudulently pretending to be associated with our well-recognized PCH name. As a company that has been in business for over 50 years, PCH is an iconic brand, recognized and welcomed into households all across the country. And, if you are familiar with the PCH name, you can be sure the scammers know us, as well.
