Winning 2.5 Million and a new CAR

Cell Number has been chosen as a winner of 2.5 million and a new 2016 convertible, from and affiliate of the Publishers Clearing House. I just need to go to Wal-Mart and send them $305.95 to Mr. Kenneth Anderson to cover the taxes on the car. And then they would deliver my new car and the money. If I am not comfortable with Wal-Mart I can go to Wells Fargo and put the money in account # 3318525544 routing # 529700399.

And when I get the Receipt call them back and they will tell me what time they will be at the house with my money and car. Yes person has a strong accent and many people in the back ground noise, and coaching on the phone.

This has to be a scam and it sure hurts to know there are so many thieves among us. BEWARE

Been playing since I was a kid, over 40 years . I consider it entertainment but I did win a whole dollar 30 years ago. I too got a 10,000 winner announcement followed by a sorry VIP saying a guy in California will never see a forever prize winner since one number out of 100s of millions will be forfeited by someone not sending back the big winner. It’s a great advertising gimmick but if someone does send it in they’ll win.why do you see only one million dollar winners. They get a lot of advertising play for that… Read more »

This happen to me a couple of months ago also another incident I recieved was a pop up saying that I won 50,000 tokens and to expect a check 4-6 weeks I am taking legal action there a class action law suit going.

PCH is a remarkable marketing SCAM that should be banned from the Internet. Why no sensible legislative/regulatory body has not sought to rid the Internet of this SCAM is a mystery,. They must pay SOMEONE a lot of money to continue with their lies, deception, and phony claims is beyond belief. The “winners” are fake! The awards to 99% of the alleged winners are FAKE and totally BS! I’m a marketing EXPERT and can say without a doubt that PCH is BRILLIANT in their marketing! BUT, if you think you are going to win something, anything, think again. It ain’t… Read more »

It’s of my belief with trust,faith and hope that yes PCH you should most definitely honor all of us people that were announced as 10000 dollar winners !!! If you can advertise passing out 10000 a week forever ,7000 a week forever, 5000 million dollar superprizes and million dollar prizes ,then most assuredly you should most definitely honor 50000 or 60000 thousand dollars on all of our names being announced as winners !!! It’s just the professional ,honorable thing to do !!! This is my opinion on this and I think a very good one !!!

Yes I’ll join this complaint discussion for sure !!! First of all I’m another victim of having my name announced on site that I was a 10000 dollar instant cash winner !!! I was very happy for about 2 hours until I had my d**n bubble bursted also.Do I think PCH should honor different people including myself for this d**n blunder ??? Hell yes because it is the honorable thing to do especially with a consumer – contest driven Corporation !!! Well I’ve moved past it and my recent complaint is having a 1000 dollar cash prize confirmed within my… Read more »
I am 77 years old and played Tri peaks rush and did over 18000 pointd putting me an all time winner . I recieved email congratulating me stated I would recieve 100 dollars in 3 t0 4 weeks I got another asking me for answers to 4 questions I saved emails and ect a nd suddenly it was removed from my Gmail and even my Tablet including another tablet with 5 emails down gone so I know they hacked me as I kept getting warning I was not alone over -00 dollars so I certainly understand them doing that to… Read more »

Pch is hacking…happens a lot. People will be playing and poof…they just disappear. Pch knows about this but continues to do over and over.

yes i cant find my emails either I hope my lawyer can get for my case

I guess I am the fifth $10,000 pop-up winner that was scammed by PCH in
September and I also captured a screenshot. I think we need a lawyer.

I also got a popup while playing pch saying I had won 10000 dollars and that afternoon got an email saying it was a mistake and IF would be entered into a special drawing with 5 more people to win. I have sent pch emails saying how wrong it is and the last one they said they would wait and see how much the public would say about it. I think putting me off hoping I will go away but I will not.

Scam. They tell me and supposedly others that we are offically $10,000 winners and now say sorry that was a mistake, and that 5 of us will be in a random $10,000 drawing. Bullshit, I will sue this POS company, for false awards. You are garbage and suck.

I will also join that “mistake” rank of recipients. I too was notified that I had won the VIP $10,000 on Sept 16th 2016. I quickly took a digital picture and screen snapshot of the winning notification knowing it would go away with a click of the mouse, and then would have no proof. Then on the following day I too received an email letter from PCH where they claim that “The announcement including your name was sent only to you, and not to anyone else.” My question is: If I was the ONLY one according to their letter that… Read more »

I won $ 10,000 last night on PCH games. This morning I got an email from PCH and they said it was a mistake. Has this happened to anyone else? I guess it was a scam after all.

I won $5 on pch games, they had me fill out a form and even put my name at the bottom of the screen where u c so and so won $10 cash or a $5 gift card. I never received my prize and when I called to complain they said that I misunderstood and I was in a contest to win $5.

You can win if you keep at it, the odds are very high against you, but it is possible. Play every day!

Lol alot of yall are idiots. It’s a free lotto,they aren’t just gonna give you the money.

Also,I’ve lost many games. Big deal,stop whining and either quit or keep trying. My aunt and uncle did win 5k years ago, so it IS real. Just very very hard to win.


Lotto not loading

PCH IS NOT FAKE….people do wins from them IT’S NOT FAKE!


I, too, have been gypped out of a win! I was playing blackjack last week, and gota blackjack on the last $25K hand. I then chose the 2nd, 3rd,and 4th squares for a 3, 8, and 10. i was so excited to finally hit 21 and then the game said “bust”! I have commented on 2 blogs and fb, but no response to cheating me out of $25,000! SHAME on PCH!!!

I keep getting emails saying this is absolutely your last chance so if you want to win, you have to send in this or that and shortly after, I get another email telling me you have so much time to enter- you will not get another notice. BUT I STILL DO!

Mary Henderson I am totally displeased with how they lure you in to order their trial items starting at approximately $4.97 provided you pay by a specific date. I sent my checks for the two trial orders within the time frame’ but they didn’t submit my checks to the banks for 10-12 days later which they said justifies them to debit my account for full prices of approximately $87 and $92 for the trial offers. Before the delivery I called to cancel my orders and was assured it would be canceled because they hadn’t been shipped yet. Weeks later they… Read more »
I have through the mail and more recently on my computer played games and read Frontline[page] since 1987. I keep on playing because someday I just know I WILL win one of their super prizes. I am not able to play for long periods at a time as I have a problem with severe swelling in my lower extremities and must get my legs up. I know I will win someday. I know I will. I see that PCH/Spectrum does exactly as they say they do. There is NO hokey pokey involved at all. Quite frankly in the age of… Read more »
Hopefully YOU become a winner ,like you I’m into playing the games have been trying to win. Like you I do enjoy playing the games. So just enjoy the games and one never knows one day PCH might be knocking at your door with a BIG CHECK in your name………. LOL enjoy and keep playing for your enjoyment…. PCH does have the numbers of chances to win………… it’s over a BILLION < one PCH is everywhere and with the computer it makes it everywhere to MILLIONS of PEOPLE there for chances are 0 to 0 to win ……….Again play the… Read more »

I’ve bee playing these PCH contests and I’ve won $10.00. Frankly, I just like to play it. Maybe I’ll win something (over $10.00) but I also like the purchases that I’ve made over the years. I don’t like going to large stores and waiting on lines so PCH is a good source for me. But I guess that’s just me.

I will enter and have online since 2008. Then they will send me another email saying all of my other entries will not matter if I discard the new one and not do it? So you do it out of fear. All it does is than take you to the site to do your entry again for the hundredth time but before you can even confirm your entry you are forced to look through a long shopping list. Sounds to me like they want to do scare tactics all in hopes you will buy something. I have yet to win.… Read more »
I agree. I’ve purchased magazines etc from them since the early 80’s. I’ve never one a penny. Now that they’re on the computer, it’s an unending amount of emails expecting you to keep ordering or keep answering their emails or your entry will be null and void. So, they lie when they say all you have to do is enter! Yeah, enter and enter and enter ad nauseam. I’m now wondering if the people who they show on the commericals winning are just actors. How can they give away $5k every week for life to so many winners? It’s just… Read more »
I always play PCH which I get in the mail, and after playing Bingo (and winning) never get a dime; I play another game on PCH (forgot whether it was scratch off or bingo) and although I always get three in a row PCH has never given me a dime. If they are going to give away prizes, then give away prizes! And about that 5000 a week for life: they have several ways of telling you: they say “you are on the super elite list” then two days later they say “immediate action required–if you don’t want your name… Read more »

I agree. I get these all of the time. So if they say my entries count than why send future ones saying the past entries do not matter if I discard this email??

I have played PCH a lot: and one time they said you can win 1 million dollars. Why do they promise things they can’t deliver? Why constantly send me emails saying “Alert1” If you are going to give away prizes then give away prizes, and if you can’t then don’t always say you will. Quit leading people on!

A few things to throw out there..Yesterday I won on the money wheel the instant 1,000.. It stopped on the money I was shocked. I went to show my mom and when we came back in it had changed to tokens. I sat there shocked for a good 30 seconds making sure I was seeing correctly. I emailed them about it and got a response saying they have no record of me winning but to keep playing PCH Games..!! Which brings me to the next subject some of the games they have on there I grew up playing and conquered… Read more »

So, you came up out of your mom’s basement, and instead of looking for a job at 28, you play PCH games instead, right?

I had been playing BINGO Party for 6 years on PCH, even longer if you consider timne spent on the candystand game site. Yes there were some glitches and at times it would go down completely. That was just the way it worked. I was continuously bombarded with pch emails and always participated. I didn’t mind because the people I played BINGO with was like a friendly community. It gave everyone a chance to chat with folks we might have the chance to. Most of us were older folks that didn’t go to the bar or go out very often… Read more »
